Just because you or a lot of others try aim for 1080/60fps, doesn't mean everyone does. You don't have to JUST play rpgs or rts games to not be aiming for 1080/60fps, either.

If they knew everything about the console in every single way in regards to how to get the best of it via coding, then we would be at 1080p no problem. Yes, the hardware is a lot more easier to code for due to it's setup and architecture, but they still learn little tips and tricks as they progress to make things run better, new optimizations to their engines as they make more and more games. It's not a hard concept to grasp, dude.
