Sony 'actively pushing' for 60FPS/1080p with PS4

Fluid frame rate performance targeted by Sony.

By David Scammell

Sony is "actively push[ing]" for PlayStation 4 developers to deliver games that render at 60FPS/1080p, according to a developer working on the console.

Discussing the differences between PS4 and Xbox One with Eurogamer, Stewart Gilray, who is working on a secret PS4 game at Just Add Water, said:

"We might see slightly smoother framerates on PS4. We're working with Sony right now, and they're trying to actively push 60 frames per second, 1080p.

"You might get situations where the graphics will be a little, but not much, lower quality on the Xbox One," he continued. "Or, you might get some fixed at 30 frames per second situations in 1080p. It depends on the scale of the game.

"If your game is going to push the heck out of the PS4, you might have to do some little tweaks [for the Xbox One version]. But if you design your game to work on Xbox One at 60, it's going to work on PS4 at 60."

Lets hope so, They made it look like PS3 would be doing 1080p 120 fps, was more like sub 720p 20-25fps.

The GPU they have selected for the task in a PC environment can barely do 1080p 60fps on todays games. Even with console optimization with the advent of next gen games i would be surprised if they pushed games for 1080p 30fps. Most games would probably be back to 720p once the graphics bar is raised.

DigitalAnalog1669d ago

Here's the thing.... Not every developer has the resources to push the system to it's limits. So all that extra "power" can at least go through a high-res and frame-rate. It's the least they could do.

Why o why1669d ago (Edited 1669d ago )

One pushes for 60fps

One pushes for 60channels ;)....

Silly jokes aside, this is what we want to hear. Consoles are still limited but lets hope this gen mirrors last and that's that everything got better technically as the gen progressed.

ThatCanadianGuy5141669d ago (Edited 1669d ago )

Yep! Day one.Break free from the shackles of oppression and join the Playstation nation!

LOL_WUT1669d ago

The way it should be IMO ;)

abzdine1669d ago

now that's what i'm talking about!

Utalkin2me1669d ago

Xbox One is doing the same thing.....oh wait that's for TV my bad.

MoveTheGlow1669d ago

@LOL_WUT, I totally agree with you.

I just wanted to say that because as I was browsing on my phone, the friggin' thing hit "Disagree." You won't find a more ardent supporter of 60fps in games :) apparently my phone actively hates me.

iloveallgames1669d ago

pushing for 1080p 60fps? That's more than a little disappointing that the best console is still working to achieve 1080p 60fps.

starchild1668d ago

I would honestly prefer that they push for 1080p/30fps with higher quality graphics.

Tatsuya 1668d ago (Edited 1668d ago )

You must be one of those PC elitist they talked about. I am too, got an awesome rig right here. But I don't talk sh1t about my console. PS4 is a beast! You and I know it, that's why you can't stop trolling. Butthurt much huh

Irishguy951668d ago

I was butthurt, when I realized Sony lied about 1080p 60 FPS being the standard on Ps3.

n4g_someone1668d ago

Gonna buy PS4, BIG TIME...

Sony can keep actively pushing 60FPS / 1080P, while I keep actively saving up to 1080 dollars for PS4 and launch games.

ThanatosDMC1669d ago

All ready got my PS4 funds saved at $800. I'm thinking of getting a second controller and 3-5 games.

dalibor1669d ago

I better start saving up myself. Wonder if your friends list will transfer from the PS3 to PS4. Can't imagine starting over again. And the PS4 better not have always online. While online capabilities did in fact bring new elements to gaming look what has become of it. Totally not what I was expecting...

BlmThug1668d ago

I'm saving up now. I think £500 should cover a PS4 and a few games.

LakerGamerEnthusiast1668d ago

Lol, that's going all out right there. I'm at $600 but if Sony announces the PS4 at a higher price than $400, (I'm hoping 400-450) Then I might have to increase my stash a bit to like 800.

My Budget is to get the Ps4, 2-3 games, and maybe, a new controller. all within 600 right now.

ThanatosDMC1668d ago

^I kept my tax refund. I'm trying my best not to use it.

RBdrift1668d ago (Edited 1668d ago )

Like any good responsible college student I'm putting a chunk of my financial Aid refund to good use.:)

rainslacker1668d ago

I have $1200 already. Was planning on X1 and PS4, but since X1 seems to be off the table now, I can just buy more games for the Wii U and PS4.:) Hopefully I have enough left over for some frozen yogurt.:)

for the PS4 as I was for the PS3. The more things are revealed about it and what devs have in store for it the more my excitement builds.


Utalkin2me1669d ago

Well it is hard to believe but i think i more excited for the PS4 at this point then i was for the PS3, yeah IKR.

dalibor1669d ago

I'm always excited about new releases. Wish I could have experienced the NES/Genesis system announcements even though I ended up playing both of them back in the day even owning the NES system. Same goes to the even older consoles, can't forget about them.

justrandom1668d ago (Edited 1668d ago )

I agree,hey Madden - Have we raced together gt5 ?I'm vlonjati77 .Familiar name your id.

ILive1669d ago

I am 1080p @ 60fps, and I approve this message.

jujubee881669d ago

Welcome our new HD overlords.

ijust2good1669d ago (Edited 1669d ago )

Fuck You Micro$oft. I'm moving to PS4. I want to play games not watch TV, i can do that on my TV and i rarely watch TV. I hope Micro$oft losses next gen and that's coming from a person that though Xbox 360 was overall better than PS3.

I want M$ to get butt hurt so that in three years down the line, they'd stop and think "damn, why didn't we build a machine with gaming in mind".

I've spoken to many people(lot of them 360 owners) and they all tell me that the PS4 is what they will get for sure.

M$, ur next xbone will be a failure as much as the Windows phone and Windows 8 OS. M$ seems to be in an all time decline. From Windows OS to Next Gen console.

greatcrusader441668d ago

This. 360 was my first this-gen console and only got a ps3 last year, great machine but since I've had my 360 for 4 more yrs its hard to say its not my preferred console since I'm used to it. But F*CK Xbox One, getting a PS4 And Wii U first, and may not even get a Xbox One period.

djtek1841669d ago

I remember during the ps2 era, most of their games were 60fps

ssj271668d ago

PS4 Mutiplataform games have ONE bottleneck .. agree if you know what I mean lol

Conan-O-Brady1668d ago

Are you talking about MS's insistence upon parity when it comes multiplats? If so I fear we may see more of that in the coming generation than we did this gen.

ssj271668d ago

seriously I hope this gen devs use that extra juice on the PS4.. guess to have better AI, FPS and better resolution.. or one of them.. specially since this time is easy to develop and it will be easier to use that extra power..
This time there is no excuse.. PS4 has clearly extra power and is easy to develop.

I know some devs will not.. EA will not or ACT.

rainslacker1668d ago

If MS fails to get a foothold in the market, particularly outside the US, they may be forced to drop that particular policy or risk losing 3rd party support...that is if 3rd party support would want to support it if it didn't have a foothold.

It's a policy that should have never been invented IMO.

Bathyj1668d ago

MS cant afford to force console parity like they did this gen, gamers wont stand for it, and publishers will be dumb if they let them.

Sure they could be bullies before having the larger userbase for most of the generation but if PS4 take the early lead, and at this stage why wouldnt it, then theres no reason for pubs to bow to that.

love how you have disagrees for "good to hear" about sony pushing for 1080p/60fps.... guess people prefer 720p/30fps :/

Ju1668d ago (Edited 1668d ago )

Yeah, because it isn't called a 720, it's called a XBone. ;) LOL. Looks like they did want to call it 720/30...

PopRocks3591668d ago

Goes to show, Sony really wants what the core gamer wants.

showtimefolks1668d ago

I wouldn't expect any less, we need at minimum to do 60FPS with 1080P

His is next gen if these systems aren't capable of that than why are they so next gen when our current can do 30-720p?

At the moment, but its still in development. It also used fxaa at the reveal, but that will be replaced by a new technique at launch.

M-M1669d ago

They still have time. I'm not saying that FOR SURE it will be 60fps, but I'm sure they're trying to push for it.

Sony3601668d ago


FXAA isn't a resource heavy technique, so unless they do some heavy optimisation you can bet it'll be at 30fps.

Really though guys, 30fps isn't bad at all. You watch movies at 27fps, just more is a bonus :)

Jaqen_Hghar1668d ago

In a demo running over 6 months before release yes it was. A man thinks they could polish it up for launch especially considering they didn't have the extra RAM to work with.

DivineAssault 1669d ago (Edited 1669d ago )

ahhh yes, cant wait.. KZ may be 30fps right now & possibly launch that way but games later on in the systems life might be 60fps.. 1080p 30fps KZ is just fine for a launch title.. Keep in mind LAUNCH TITLE..

Since the console is designed to be easy for devs, we will get some great stuff... I am so damn pumped for PS4.. I want it now & cant wait! My wallet is ready!

Lior1669d ago

For a 2013 console it should be 60fps at launch no excuse

Pudge881669d ago (Edited 1669d ago )

totally agree man... a new generation and still trying to cap us at 30FPS... Not acceptable at ALL and none of us gamers shouldnt accept it either. We should start with 1080p 60fps...that is all

claudionmc1669d ago

That's true... but from 3GB GGDR5 of developer ps4 to 7GB GDDR5 of final ps4 usable RAM, they could go from 30fps to 60fps

Fishy Fingers1669d ago

Your not going to get much clearer than that^^ folks.

Sony3601668d ago

FPS is always at the cost of visual perks. Try not to forget that before posting such dick brained comments.

Ju1668d ago

Is that it? Well, we had that already. Ride Race runs flawless 1080p @ 60fps. So, that's what you want?
