Honestly, I don't think 1080p will even be standard for most next-gen games. The current gen is perfectly capable of running games at 1080p but developers choose to focus on using higher quality assets instead. Hell, many games don't even run at 720p. I suspect next-gen games will be no different, which is fine by me because the PC versions will still get the higher quality assets in addition to higher resolutions, AA and framerate.
I'd be very surprised if 1080p is not the minimum-resolution for next-gen consoles, as it would be the most obvious visual difference from the current-gen. They need it as a selling point. As for current-gen consoles, while there were many high profile games that were sub-720p (GTA4, Halo 3) and still lagged at times, due to optimisations Halo 4 was actually native 720p.

There's no point releasing a new generation of consoles if they're not going to substantially improve the graphics and 720p is one of the biggest fidelity bottlenecks at the moment. You may be right but I hope and suspect you are wrong.

These consoles need to support non-HD tvs, so the minimum will probably be the current minimum. To me running in 1080 is a STRICT minimum though, which is another reason I've been sticking to PC. If these new games don't all support 1080, it'll be ridiculous.
