1080p a PS3 no-no?

Meanwhile, back at the console wars...Xbox exec on PS3: "1080p... will be basically impossible" - Joystiq. A quote:

Speaking with Kikizo Games, Xbox's Director of the Game Technology Group, Scott Henson, had his doubts about Sony's claim that PS3 games will feature 'full HD' (1080p resolution): "I think 1080p, just to address that directly, will be basically impossible. I think if you talk to any developer they will tell you that they will not have a performing game at 1080p."

Which is all very well, and as a journalist I salute the muddle all this sort of stuff causes because there's a 1000 words in there easy ;-) But either both sides in the war are forgetting something or they realise they have no control over it and might as well argue over the number of angels dancing on the head of a pin. To paraphrase Bill Clinton: it's the games, stupid.

Killer games sell consoles. Simple as that.
