Prove me wrong then Show me 1. Why the design of the Xbox cant possibly do 1080p, in your own language. 2) why it HAS to be the PS4 design. Do it!
But I never said or implied the Xbox One cannot do 1080p. I actually said that even the 360 could do 1080p, at 60fps with that, provided a sufficiently simple scene to render. Actually, my old Radeon 9600SE from 2004 could do 1080p at 60fps provided all it had to render was a rotating teapot with flat shading. You can achieve the resolution and framerate you want with pretty much any hardware provided you're not rendering something computationally expensive.
Obviously both consoles support 1080p and both consoles will achieve similar framerates and similar level of visual quality. Given its faster hardware, however, games will end up looking somewhat better on PS4.
You're the one assuming you know better than Microsoft and yet, admitting you don't know why they did what they did and ignoring every valid reason I've stated page after page that they probably thought of as well. Makes no sense. How do you know there is a tradeoff when neither company has delivered anything playable? how do you know their design isn't going to work or be fully capable at 1080p?
I never said their design wasn't going to work or not be fully capable at 1080p. Obviously their design will work for what they intend it to do, i.e. great-looking games at 1080p and 30-60fps. That said, PS4 should achieve slightly better visual quality because it can do more calculations per frame. This is the logical conclusion to make from the specs we have. You're trying to argue that the extra power in PS4 will be useless, which is inane.
I'm not at Microsoft any more so there's no "you guys" :-)
Oops, sorry about that. Since when?
