Who started that whole 1080p BS?

Just curious.

Last gen, I know I didn't give a damn about it, wasn't even on my mind.

I have no idea, but my best guess would be PS4 fans.

PlayStation the corporation not the fans.. this never existed last Gen. Sony started it at last Years E3. the same company that said ps3 can do 4D. and that was a selling point which never came to be

its just buzz words. every corporation does it

Last gen was all about "better graphics on multiplatform games, Xbox Live better than PSN, better controller, etc". Like Nintendo fans always talked about the Wii sales.

So now PS fans have the 1080p thing in this gen.

Graphics obsessed morons who really should be playing on a PC since it matters to them so much.

and another point 1080p has been on PC for years before PlayStation decided to use as one of their buzzwords

they act as if this is the standard. And it is for PC gamers. for consoles 1080p is good for about a year maybe two. pushing it in two and a half and older consoles 1080p becomes 900p. and lowered every year

so you see Sony Corporation before you say PlayStation 4 1080p no problem. better make sure its future proof because it's not the standard for consoles gaming

Well considering 360 started HD (720p) console gaming all the way back in 2005, 1080p(or even more) and 60fps should be standard with a system launching in 2013. The fact there are so many 720p games on X1 is where it all stems from. Plus inferior ports.

So its a reverse of the Ps3 and 360 last gen. Ps3 had some bad ports for the first few years. With some laughably bad ones like Bayonetta or Ghostbusters running at 540p haha. I owned both systems so it didnt matter though.

Microsoft and Sony both promised way more powerful systems and 1080p gaming. Only one has shown that. It has nothing to do with Sony fans spouting buzz words. X1 has basically failed at everything from PR, to ports, features, the Kinect debacle. All the people defending Xbox 1, did you not expect a 1080p standard this gen??

I guess Sony back when they were developing Blu-Ray. I don't know if that came first or the TVs.

Playstation fans have been jealous of Xbox since the first one came out. They were so sure last gen that the PS3 had the vastly superior hardware, and many of them will still try to claim that it was more powerful, and there was some kind of conspiracy that MS was paying 3rd party developers to make the 360 versions of multi-plats better or that developers were just being lazy. Some are saying the same thing now with Xbox one starting to hit 1080p on more multi-plats, that the PS4 is being "held back".

Truth is that games that came on early last gen were usually 720p, but later on devs realized that they could make their games look better by increasing the details, textures and post processing and decreasing the resolution to 540p and scaling up. I wouldn't be surprised if something similar happened this gen, and games settled in closer to 900p, but I'm not sure the resolution whores will allow that to happen.

"Who started that whole 1080p BS?"

If you own a 1080p TV...and a blu-ray player...

Don't know who "started" it with consoles but thank god they did.
