It’s not about 1080p, stupid.

EA CEO John Riccitiello:

I think there’s going to be an interesting debate when you get to processing power beyond what you can push up with a 1080p or a 720p [system]. Most people squint between 1080p and 720p, because what’s the difference, seriously?

Like Riccitiello said, most won’t be able to tell the difference between the two if sitting at an optimum distance from the display. But if you sit closer, you’ll be able to tell the two apart. It’s not about 720p versus 1080p; it’s about what our eyes can see. As long as there’s a resolution gap between our eyes and the displays we use, graphics and display technology will continue to improve.
