1600 x 900 = 1,440,000 pixels.
1920 x 1080 = 2,073,000 pixels.

So what looks like a measly little 180p difference is deceptive. It's actually a difference of 633,000 pixels. Ryse is running at a 30% reduced resolution from what it should be.

This is really embarrassing for a 'next gen' system that costs $100 more than the competition.

Remind me why anyone is buying this thing again?

There's an even bigger difference between 720p and 1080p, yet you're not going to notice it on screens 32" and smaller or if you're far enough away from your bigger screen, so it all depends on your setup. To some people it will matter, to others it won't. Personally I find I can see things easier and find things better on screen with my 22" monitor than I can with my 47" TV.

720p looks good IF you have anti aliasing.

900p vs 1080p is virtually imperceptible. You'd have to actively be switching between the two/do a side-by-side for the vast, vast majority to even notice there was a difference.

You're looking for 633,000 extra pixels across the entire viewing monitor?

XD computer nerds, I won't touch a game cause it has this much less pixels than it should. The cold honest truth is that the average person won't care. The only people that will care are graphic whores and PC nerds.

Because I find Ryse more intriguing than anything the PS4 has to offer. Granted, I still may not buy Ryse, but of all the launch games it peeks my interest the most. I simply don't care that it runs at 900p rather than 1080p.
