Aren't there Wii U games that are 1080p 60fps, but obviously they don't look nowhere near as good as the Xbox One games; for example, Ryse. So isn't a game with 1080p suppose to have better graphics than a game with 900p?

No. No exactly. You can bump CS 1.6 to 1080p and it would look like CS running in a higher resolution. I mean. Some things are smoother in higher resolution. The textures tend to look sharper. So do aliasing. More details will be apparent and the images will be sharper. The thing is the games have to be made for that. Without high poly counts and high texture quality. Detailed enivornments. Use of special effects. Without all that what does simply being 1080p mean?

Polygon count is what comes to mind when I think "graphics." Ppl are talking about resolution wayy too much. It's the polygon count that really makes a big difference. Resolution can complement that nicely, but it just isn't the main component to me.

1080p means you can sit a bit closer to the screen and it will look just as good as 720p did from slightly farther away.
Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.

A good resolution makes any game far more enjoyable.
Jaggies kill all the fun.
Regardless of the quality of graphics.

720p resolution looks good as long as there is a solid level of AA present.
Anything below 720p progressively looks more and more disgusting with each event that has no AA involved.

This is why the majority of Xbox 360 games are borderline unplayable.

I brought call of duty on my PS4, and had to sell it because I wanted the maps on Xbox One.
Trust me, unless your TV is over 55in you won't even be able to tell the difference without having a massive screen.and if anyone tells you any difference they seriously have no idea how high resolution works.
It's like 4k, you'd need a massive 70 in to see the true benefits.
Xbox One & PS4, plus 3DS is the real way forward into the Next Generation of gaming.. FC: 4398-9839-4453
