Must have tiny portable TV's the size of a desktop monitor then because most of my friends play from the sofa. Even I do.
DOn't know how anyone can do it. I find sitting at my desktop an eye strain sometimes with just a 24" monitor. Heaven forbid anyone playing from a foot or two away on a HDTV screen the size of mine. Their eyeballs would explode.

As long as the frame rate is consistent it doesn't really matter how fast it is. The only games that frame rate is really important in is first person shooters, even then a consistent 30FPS is more than enough.
I am amused however that it doesn't run in 1080p natively, especially when Forza does (apparently). It doesn't look that good looking to me to justify that sort of performance or resolution.
Honestly, the only people who really care about resolution and frame rates are PC gamers. Taking into account the amount of money some of them put into their machines they need something to stroke their e-peen with.
