I've got a 50 inch 1080p TV, I sit 8.5 feet away from it.

The difference between 720p and 1080p is somewhat noticeable depending on the content. If I lean forward I'm at 6 feet, at that point it's more noticabke but I can see individual pixels on my TV, which is too close.

It's obvious why developers cut down from 1080p, the 40%+ extra processing power can be used for nicer graphics or better framerate, and the difference is hard to spot.
How do you make that alcoholic chicken anyway?

I have a 70" TV, sit 12' away and no, I can't tell the difference between my PS4 and Xbox One (I can tell the trivial differences when still frame side by side comparisons are shown but in action not at all) especially since Xbox One outputs all content at 1080p, lower resolutions are upscaled by the console, so the question really boils down to native 1080p vs 1080p upscaled.

when I'm watching netflix and the streaming quality changes from 720 to 1080 or vice versa I can easily see the difference

I can absolutely tell the difference between my HD cable and a movie on Bluray. Topics like this are so ridiculous. There is absolutely a clear difference.

yes. I have a 55" HDTV and I can tell the difference between 720p on HD Cable and and a 1080p Blu Ray. huge difference.

And there is even a difference between 1080i and 1080p. A certain level of enhanced crispness and clarity when you move from interlaced to progressive.
I don't always Troll on the internet. But when I do, I make it the Xbox-One forums...

32 inch tv, sit about 6 feet away.

I can tell the difference, it's like night and day. It's harder to tell on consoles, I'm guessing theres some upscaling going on but with PC games it is so obvious.

I own both consoles and BF4 and COD Ghosts for both.
In BF4 there is not much difference on my 50" TV (calibrated for games). In COD it is more noticeable.
But to be honest it is not a "game" changer.

The only thing I really notice is how little difference there is from Xbox360 to Xbox One.
At least the jump from Ps3 to Ps4 is a bit bigger.
But then again the Ps3 was for the most part weaker on multiplats.

If you want a major next level experience get a Wii U.

I have perfect vision. The difference in resolution is minor to the point that it is not really noticeable. At this level the difference in image sharpness is small. The biggest difference is the widescreen forrmat. The widescreen switch is a noticeable change but not a big deal.

I game on a 52 " 1080p plasma [ PSWiiPCBOX ] Currently playing - Sonic Generations, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Strider, inFamous: SS, Forza 5, Titanfall
