That's why they focus on game play and innovative hardware instead, that's what sets them apart.

I dont want to be rude but gaming on a table PC or a laptop is always a lot better than ahving any of theses consoles.
Also brings much more versatility and the internet is loaded with a free games where in this case you always have to buy something.

Upping resolution, increasing framerate, these will only serve to drive up hardware and software costs, increase development time, and worsen portable battery life. To be concerned about these things is to have purchased the wrong console.
