Well my friend indeed games dont run at 1080p granted, but this generation was a huge step forward on HD gaming having 720p is a lot more that we could dream on the ps2. I really couldnt read through your post and I didnt even understand if you are calling me brainless or someone else brainless so I really cant reply if I cant understand. Cheers buddy.
I assume that there are other like minded people, and not just the brainless morons we call console gamers. Having played IV on PC it must be said that Rockstar sucks at porting games, even with a decent rig you still get lag and the game doesn't even look that good.
This generation of consoles has been a massive let down with all the hype of "Full HD Gaming" nearly all the games are either 720P or less. Not to mention running a high resolution takes a tole on the system and when your using graphics hardware that was outdated long before the console existed you end up with a game that looks like crap and has lag.
