    60 frames.. in 720p. Oh yeah…
    Hey, PS3 can do 60 frames per second too in 240p image, i’m sure.

    While it’d be nice to have both, 60 fps @ 720p >>>> 30 fps @ 1080p, especially sitting 7 feet from your telly combined with the excellent console upscalers and AA. I don’t think the resolution has been confirmed though.

    Excellent Console upcalers?
    L O L?

    That is exactly opposite. If your game is in 1080p 30 fps vs 720p 60 fps you get worse image in 720p. The difference is that it is smoother in 60 fps… but how about V-SYNC option? That is also depends n how 60 frames will be smooth or not.

    I find the upscaling done by consoles to be quite good (much better than on PC anyway), but that’s quite subjective and there’s nothing ‘opposite’ about it. However, there’s a level of diminishing returns in regards to the benefit of an increased resolution whereby the difference between 720 upscaled with AA and native 1080p, while still apparent, become less and less relevant with increasing viewing distance. Comparatively, the difference between 30 vs 60 fps is apparent no matter where you’re sitting, and ‘V-SYNC’ does nothing to change that.
