Pixel Counting

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 came out in 2013, and there has been a huge debate over resolution and frame rates ever since. Does it even matter? I think it doesn't matter as long as the next generation has improved visuals over the last. I own an Xbox One and a gaming PC, so I feel I have a unique view of the situation. I remember in early November, everyone on the internet was giving Xbox a hard time, but I had already had pre-ordered it in August. I had enough faith in the Xbox brand to keep it. I got my Xbox One, gleefully hooked it up with Battlefield 4, and I was speechless. It was only 720p, but it looked much better than anything on the Xbox 360. Then later on I went to my local Gamestop, and they told me basically they had the same experience. Honestly, as gamers, shouldn't we be happy with new consoles as long as there is substantial improvement? I certainly am enjoying the Xbox One, and I hope you're enjoying your console of choice. But more importantly, I hope that everyone is enjoying the next generation of consoles, regardless of its pixel counts.
