Imagine the scenes if Halo Infinite runs at 1080p on the XSX. The Sony boys would meme for months. So don't act like it's only one side doing this
You mean the Halo infinite with static screens and not much going on - if you think that is taxing just to render static low quality stuff at high resolution even at 8K then go and enjoy it - most people understand quality pixels and lots of movement and effects going on is far more taxing.
If this confuses you, go watch digital foundry Valhalla on XSX when 1 torch is used in a dark room, you know the scene, with lots of aphas and effects destroys XSX frame rate.
Now crank that up with ray traced global illumination and lots of particles and there you go.
What do you want next gen, lots of effects and stuff going onscreen which cant be done on old consoles, or games which just have more pixels and look like last gen games ?
I will sum it up for you to keep it simple .....Pixel pushers vs on screen action and effects.
