Help I'm so confused! I'm getting mixed messages from Microsoft about resolution

80/80

So a few days ago I read that Phil Spencer said that 1080p isn't some miracle resolution, as if he's downplaying it somehow but I don't know why:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/microsoft-on-xbox-one-1080p-isnt-some-mythical-per/1100-6421708/

And then today I read that Microsoft actually "pushed" Blizzard to release Diablo at 1080p:

http://m.ign.com/articles/2014/08/20/microsoft-pushed-blizzard-to-hit-1080p-with-diablo-3

So I gotta ask, what should I believe here? This just seems too contradictory to me. Is resolution important or not? If anyone has an answer I would appreciate it if you could clarify here.

Thanks in advance.

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

There's not a single person here that wouldn't do the same. Putting a situation in perspective while also trying to improve it in the background is something we have all done. If MS wasnt attached to this situation, no one would care. We all know that's true too...

Both? Just because he's admitted in the past that it's not some special resolution doesn't mean that MS wouldn't go out of their way to get games to 1080p if, for no other reason, than to appease the idiot fans who believe it is some special resolution.

This Phil Spencer guy seems to genuinely care about increasing sales and bringing games to a 'new level' and if the vocal minority want 1080p then he's probably going to work to get 1080p whether he particularly believes it's special or not.

All it means is Microsofts most "credible" guy turned out to be the same as the rest.

Lol linking to an IGN article of all things.

You do know that by the time IGN posts an article that the news are at least 1 day old.

This is like the 7th or 8th topic on this. Fail.

@BDJayce

I was going to edit in pretty much the same thing. 'Both' makes perfect sense to me and it should make perfect sense to everyone else. There is only one "issue" that would cause people to care about this and that's because its Microsoft. Replace that name with ANYTHING else and its no longer an issue.

Well with you being so confused and needing our help, we weren't sure why you did care exactly, as it'd be easier to not stress your head about it if it's that mentally exhausting.
