Definitely buying that game for my X1. So much playtime can be had from that game.

So what is with these obscure resolutions? 1080p/30 FPS not possible on the PS4? 720p/60 FPS not possible on the X1?

They probably chose them based on the best overall image quality/performance tradeoff. On the Xbox One, 1408x792 is 21% higher resolution than straight 720p, while 1600x900 is about 30% lower resolution than 1080p. So potentially, running the PS4 version at 1080p would cause framerate dips that were 30% lower than they would have been otherwise (a drop to 20FPS at 1600x900 would instead have been a drop to 14FPS at 1080p, for example), while on the Xbox One, lowering the resolution to 720p might not provide a real benefit if the game is still hitting a 30FPS cap a majority of the time. It's always about finding a balance between performance and visual fidelity.
