"If the textures, shaders, lighting, etc is substandard.. What good is a 1080p atari 2600 game!?"

Pure comedy I tell you


Yes Wind Waker looks like an Atari game..


Who said it did?

Phil Spencer is down playing 1080p resolution in another interview.


Classic Laylow; always taking things out of context so that you can spin something one comment about gameplay into a sensationalized thread that not only fuels the console war, but also fulfills your Anti-Xbox One agenda.

Phil Spencer stated in the CVG interview that, "There are a long list of games. Reaching parity with our partners has been important. But in the end I don't want it to be about a number, because 1080p isn't some mythical, perfect resolution. Framerate to me is significantly more important to gameplay than resolution and the mix of those two which brings the right art style and freedom, whether it's on PlayStation or our platform."

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with that statement because I would also rather play a game at 900p/60fps than 1080p/30fps. But, you know, I guess that's just me though. The resolution, frames, artwork, gameplay, theme, characters, story, etc, should always be up to the people developing a game, and not the head of one console company that expects certain standards and then refuses to support them if they are not meet. In other words, this topic is ridiculous because games should always be about fun.

I bet Phil Spencer owns a 1080p television, as do most of his loyal fanboys lol.

Reviews? Polls? Sales? Resolution? FPS? Nothing matters now except for what the competition does not have.

But 917p? Ooh, yeah, that's the sweet stuff. Gimme more of that!

He's correct about that actually: 1080p is just another resolution on a scale that reaches from 0 to infinity. There's no "Mythical, Perfect Resolution", but obviously having a higher resolution will be superior to having a lower one.

Exactly that. Your 720p TV displays the games properly, but on a 1080p TV you will not have the same nice picture quality. That's why I prefer to use a HD CRT TV that can do both 720p and 1080i natively and both look perfect. ALso because of motion clarity and input lag.

Hardly any recent HDTV is going to be 720p native. Virtually all "720p" LCD HDTVs are going to actually be 1366x768 native, which is going to scale 720p content up to it even worse than a 1080p set would. Although ideally, you'd want a 4K display so that you can properly scale from either 720p OR 1080p with pixel perfect accuracy (as long as you can disable scale processing on it).

Nintendo has lots of 1080p.

3 games is "lots" now? Unless you're only including Nintendo developed games, in which case you reach a whopping 1 game.

Exactly, the xbone should have far more 1080p games than Nintendo

Microsoft had more when they launched the Xbox One, nevermind how many they have now.

I thought Phil was changing the way Microsoft handled PR but he's resorting to the same dishonest assertions that tainted the brand to begin with. It casts doubt on everything he says. =\
