Ugh, this just adds fuel to the fire. He's not exactly wrong but always bringing this up does Microsoft no favours. If they would just stop talking about it people would slowly stop complaining about it. Every time somebody at Microsoft does this it just comes off as damage control and makes trolls focus on it all over again.

The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

So, by Phil's logic, what's 720p then?

There goes his reputation as a "straight shooter".

Who cares about 1080p. It is not a requirement to make the game more enjoyable for me; especially since I play most of my games on a 720p capable HDTV anyways and the games still look great. 1080p is vastly overrated as the end-all, be-all resolution requirement and this is the same tune I will sing once the Xbox One can output it natively and makes it a standard resolution, although I won't complain if games have it, as developers figure out how to make it available.

Well, he is right. 1080p is nice, it is preferred, but it is far from required. Just because a game is 1080p or 4k or 10k doesn't mean the game will be perfect and will have the "greatest graphics". Resolution is only one aspect out of many. Resolution means nothing if the textures, shaders, lighting, etc is substandard. What good is a 1080p atari 2600 game?
