Mike_LowELL: The last seven Call of Duty games are pretty much the seven best games ever made.
Mike_LowELL: I don't understand why people would get upset about this. The last seven Call of Duty games are pretty much the seven best games ever made. Why fix what isn't broken?
ceebeecates4: Heh. Consoles.
buntz: I enjoy a lot of games on the Wii and I'm fine with not seeing Mario's pores.I also enjoy MW3 on the XBox and if that's not 1080, then it's the best looking 720 I've ever seen
jaytkay: You know the difference between 1080p and 720p when you're six feet from the TV?If you say yes, you're wrong.
Codenamechaz: To be fair, I don't think the last CoD game was 1080p either. Even the PC version was hard locked to 720p for some stupid reason.
theurge14: Seriously? I enjoy MW3 on my XBOX too but it's full of jaggies.
moviemarketing: 1080i and 720p are quite similar, but 1080p and 720p are night and day different with my projector at about 15 feet from the sofa. I've watched a number blu-ray titles that I've also seen in cinemas several times and some have looked better on my home projector at 1080p.
Nem Wan: You have be sitting closer than 10 feet to a 50-inch TV to be able to see more detail than 720p.

Seriously, if you try a valid test 720p vs 1080p you will be surprised.

moothemagiccow: Also discussions like this are the worst part of video games. If headline was "Next Call of Duty will not feature guns, run at 2k/1000fps" no one would comment
Imperious Rex!: I think it's just the game. Many console games, such as Alpha Protocol and the ME games, offer an HD range of 720p/1080i/1080p.
styckx: Ahh yes the Treyarch COD... Always visually appealing but something just never feels complete about it and feels off in the controls. Then back to the Infinity Ward version.. Always visually appealing but is just recycled bullshiat from past versions w/ perks rearranged and renamed.
moviemarketing: Codenamechaz: To be fair, I don't think the last CoD game was 1080p either. Even the PC version was hard locked to 720p for some stupid reason.I'd be pretty surprised if that were the case.The only PC game I've ever heard of that was locked to 720p resolution is Dark Souls.
wookiemonster: Subby must have meant that with the Wii U, the true "Next Generation" is supposed to arrive, yet it apparently can't handle 1080p. Yeah, it could be just that COD programmers are lazy and don't want to put any more time/money into the game to get 1080p, but we won't know if Wii U can truly handle 1080p games till probably later in the console's cycle.But, it's probably a moot point... "The R700 GPU in the Wii is a strong GPU - the Wii U will be capable of outputting full 1080p graphics - but it is ultimately a four-year-old GPU."so the "next generation" is really repackaged "old generation" from 2008. Yah, it's all about the games, but Nintendo seemingly really cheaped out on the hardware this time around; only 2GB of Ram. My farking PHONE has four times a much Ram as the Wii./subby

Hand Banana: DanZero: [imgs.xkcd.com image 389x337]That is probably the stupidest XKCD comick they've ever done. Comparing the resolution of a large screen tv to a little phone screen?
