Dead Rising 3 locked at 30fps

Dead Rising 3's TGS demo shows fixed framerate and co-op freedom.

In August, Capcom Vancouver showed off a new in-game demo from the studio's upcoming Xbox One launch title, Dead Rising 3; a demo that, for all its charms and over-the-top zombie killings, suffered from some pretty significant framerate issues. Producer Mike Jones promised that the studio was working directly with Microsoft on optimizing the game to solve the issue — fortunately, that promise appears to be one Capcom plans to keep, as those issues weren't present in the demo shown off at TGS 2013. (Dead Rising 3, Xbox One)

Great news! 30 fps is impressive considering hundreds of zombies and all of the physics

The graphics look pretty good too :)

Yeah a steady 30fps in a game like this is great news (although I suspect that there will be some slow-down considering the massive scale of the game and things going on, on the screen).
PFFT  +   869d ago
Nope! According to Polygon there was no slowdown or screen tearing whatsoever even when the zombie horde became bigger and the zombie disposal attacks became gorier and flashier. The game still retained its 30fps and the gameplay remains smooth.
mkis007  +   869d ago
Apparently they use variable resolution to make sure the fps stays at 30. Or was that a rumor?

Hmmm thats good a solid 30fps is just fine for this type of game, its just nice to see devs not afraid of criticism all while they keep working hard to fix issues before launch.

DR3 with hundreds of zombies on screen, huge open world maps that are bigger and more detailed than its predecessors combined, all with no load times, co op mode, no time limit or optional time limit, weapon and vehicle customization, smartglass and Kinect functionality theres just so much to love all in one package which is why DR3 sounds like an amazing next gen gaming experience.

I cant wait to pick this up day ONE.

I was kinda wondering what fps DR3 would be. But knew that it won't be 60fps. INSANE scale of zombies in one go?! yeah, highly unlikely.

Jack_Of_All_Blades  +   869d ago
I was excited about this game when I first heard about it, but the more I see and here about it I am getting a little less enthrilled about it. I am sure DR4 will be better as it will be later in the generation and games always look and run better further into a generation, too bad it's not for PC, but oh well.
ChrisW  +   868d ago
Unless your TV can actually support 60hz, 120hz, or more refresh rates, getting excited about a game having more than 30 fps means NOTHING.

And if your TV is more than 5 years old, strong chances are it doesn't have more than a 30hz refresh rate.
Eonjay  +   868d ago
The game is running much smoother than before. If you look at the screenplay though, there are fare less zombies than before. Before they had like 60 -70 on screen zombies at once, Now its just a few dozen at most. DR3 is currently the highest preordered of all the Xbox One exclusives.

@ chris w i actually recently bought a 120hz tv for the specific purpose of the next gen consoles coming in so i would certainly be expecting to play a lot of 60fps games this generation. Granted its still a launch title and not all games need to be 60fps but anyone who has played call of duty will tell you how that frame rate pays off so lets not pretend like it doesn't matter at all

Dude, every tv supports at least 60hz for the past 10 years as far as I know and it makes a big difference. I'm sure you can see the difference when you play a cod gave vs. Bf3 on consoles for example.
wishingW3L  +   868d ago
all TVs with color are 60hz minimum and 120hz/etc. is just a scam, an excuse to justify the price-tag of a more expensive display. 120hz TVs are just 60hz display with a post process that duplicates frames to simulate smoother motion but in practice it only increases the amount of latency by a lot.

When buying a TV what you should look is for the quality of the panel. As of now there is nothing better than IPS for LCD's.
Blaze929  +   869d ago
definitely great news. Anyone complaining wasn't interested in this game to begin with and just trolling - because if you were, you'd know how terrible this game was running just a few months ago with everything its doing.
Blachek  +   869d ago
To anybody that might complain about 30 FPS, watch gameplay and tell me it doesn't look smooth enough.

Let how a game looks & runs be the barometer for how it looks... and runs. Not some FPS or 720 vs 1080 statistic.
wishingW3L  +   868d ago
after playing sub 30 frames games on consoles since the 90's any consistent frame-rate will look smooth. XD

It's like after playing on 480i for so many years even 720p looks mighty impressive but now we want 1080p on every game.

HaMM4R  +   869d ago
Not that I agree with onyoursistersback in any way, but to GTAs credit even though it doesn't have thousands of AI on screen at once it does run on current gen consoles which is something that I highly doubt DR3 will be able to do. A solid 30fps is more than enough for the style of game and hopefully it will have a 1080p native res. Its titles like that which make me wish I had the money for PS4 and xbox one.

As a person who doesnt have a problem at with 30fps, I have to say this is not "good news," merely acceptable.

It is acceptable, because anything less would be unacceptable, especially for next gen. Also to be honest while the game does look great, it isnt the type of next gen game that will blow people away graphics wise.

It means nothing except to people that flock to near meaningless stats... Like people that hunt for the highest megapixel camera or the highest wattage speakers thinking it muat be better because one number is bigger!

Counterstrike always was a graphics-intensive game, after all.

Lol.. OK I'll give you that one.. Still the best fps ever made

But my point was... Its a weak argument, most people can't even tell the difference between upscaled or native 1080p..

And every single game can run 60fps or above if they kept worlds andddetails smaller... Games that need to be 60fps are. Others benefit from the prettier side or the coin

kingxtreme81  +   869d ago
For an open world game with no loading time, that is completely streamed, that has hundreds of characters on the screen at one time, and is a launch title, a locked-in 30fps is really great.

All things considered I don't know how anyone can reasonably dispute that.

a smooth 30fps is serviceable, not terrible. and dont give me that bullshit that it gives you a headache or some shit like that, cause unless you were born in 2005 it is what gamers dealt with for decades without complaint.
FamilyGuy  +   868d ago
I get the relief that it's locked at 30fps, it's just those guys that are praising 30fps as if it were something we haven't been use to that need to stop.
Most current gen games are locked at 30fps, the really heavy action games are the ones that fall below 30/have an unstable 30fps.

As far as having tons of enemies on screen at once, I saw there was a lot in the first trailer and it's cool but it didn't blow me away either. Combining items to form a new weapon was awesome though. I grew up playing Dynasty Warriors on PS2... PS 2. It's always had tons of enemies on screen at once though it also had huge slow downs because of it. Number of enemies on screen at once just isn't that big a deal.

Anyway, it's good to hear they cleaned this up, I really don't want Capcom going bankrupt from people losing interest. Despite all their DLC money grabbing they're still a company that made many of the games I played as a child. Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo on the Snes was one of my all time favorites. I'd really miss these guys.

Not that impressed with DR3, now Forza 5 is a different story. Yes I know DR3 has hundreds of zombies on screen and all that jazz, it just looks too much like LFD but with more polygons per character.
abusador  +   869d ago
Racing games arent as technically complex as these other types of games, especially open world games. Last gen we even had racers such as GT at 1080p with close to 60fps but fluctuating at times, so seeing racing games look impressive next gen doesn't do anything for me (especially given so many shortcuts that turn 10 has taken in terms of pre baked backdrops, no night/day, etc...), neither fighters.

Not to say Forza doesnt look good because it does but im just saying. A game with tons of npcs on screen with a steady 30fps and good details is more impressive imo.
hollabox  +   869d ago
Its more about the Art direction, DR1 looked colorful and bright but low polygonal characters. DR 2 is a couple of years old now but I can honestly say DR 3 is not that much of an upgrade. DR 3 depending on the scene has this grayish to brownish tone I don't particular care for.

DR3 art style looks less detailed when compared to DR2. What's the point of having 100's of characters on screen when the color saturation and art style fail so showcase the complexity of the character model? I own DR1, and DR2, impressed with both, but DR3 might be the first game in the series I will skip.

Just funny not seeing all the people bragging about how everything on Xbox One will be 1080p, 60fps anymore. Now that reality is setting in, people seem to be making more turns than Microsoft has.

When all you saw before was Xbox One fans trashing any other games that ran at lower resolution or at 30fps. Somehow the system was claimed to so powerful because it can do 4k gaming and run everything in 1080p at 60fps right?

Ryse isn't even 1080p and this is locked to 30fps.

I personally don't care that much about that in general, I am fine with 720p and 30fps any day but its the fact that so many Xbox One supporters tried to down play everything before like no game was worthy of playing unless it was 1080p, 60fps.. Just made me have to make a comment about it.

What fools they look like now.

Anyway good to see they have a solid frame rate now, it was terrible before. I mean I am completely fine with 30fps but once it starts dropping below that it can become pretty noticeable.
DialgaMarine  +   869d ago
It's all Xbox fans know how to do. Whenever a ball isn't in their court, it almost instantly becomes irrelevant. Notice how since the PS3 has had more higher rated exclusives, on top of surpassing 360 in WW sales, suddenly those arguments don't exists. Same goes for how the PS3 has far more exclusives, and the PS4 will be the superior platform for indies. They're nothing more than childish little hypocrites at this point.

Even better is that They have pretty zero arguments to claim the XBone better than PS4, besides their own personal manipulated opinion.

@starchild: What goalposts have Sony fanboys moved?

Make that list. I'd really like to see it.

The ONLY thing MS fanboys have done since the 7th generation's start has been keep shifting the argument to suit their needs. This acceptance of Dead Rising's performance stats is just one more thing, since they've been blasting every PS4 game that isn't either 1080P or 60fps.

And here you are, defending them while attacking Sony fans, as usual.

Isn't that weird?
XboxFun  +   869d ago

"What goalposts have Sony fanboys moved?"

Hmmm, let me see...

- Sony will never charge for multiplayer
- Oh, that's okay PS+ is such a great deal

- 8 Gigs of RAM dedicated to Games!
- Oh that's okay, you don't need 8 gigs to make a great game

- We don't need or want Cross game chat!
- Hooray PS4 has Cross game chat!

- We love the power of the cell!
- Hooray, Sony ditched the power of the cell!

- MS's E3 will only be Kinect focused
- *silence*

- Give the Vita a year!!!
- Vita doesn't need a price drop!!
- Everyone was clapping at the Vita reveal!!

C'mon now, you guys move those goal posts so many times that it's even hard for you to score.

Funny how games and exclusives once mattered to you Sony fanboys and now it went from RAM, hUMA to 1080p and 60 FPS. Ammo is getting pretty thin over there, I expect a full surrender soon.
DialgaMarine  +   869d ago
You mean like how most Xbox fans have already surrendered? Xbox no longer has the advantage of online features. It no longer has the advantage of hardware. No longer has the advantage of sales. No longer has the advantage of media features. No longer has the advantage of superior indie support. No longer has the advantage of price. You Xbots try to pretend that it has the advantage of games, when any moron who has researching skills beyond the N4G homepage can clearly see the PS4 destroys in the games category too. XBone literally has no advantages over the PS4 to make it the better system, and you XBot kids know it. You're only buying it because you're dumbass little sheep that can't stand to admit that another product no made by your favorite might actually be better.

Sure, Sony fans flip flop a lot too, but at least they still give legitimate arguments for why their opinion changed, and don't just pretend their previous argument never existed. With Xbots, it's literally night and day.

"Oh, that's okay PS+ is such a great deal."

And people still aren't happy about it. PS+ just softens the blow.

"Oh that's okay, you don't need 8 gigs to make a great game."

Evidenced by the PS3, 360, and Wii. No Sony fan ever said 8GB was NEEDED. Cut the crap and stop making things up.

"Hooray PS4 has Cross game chat!"

I'm afraid you'll have to show me that one, as I've seen most people saying they still don't care.

"Hooray, Sony ditched the power of the cell!"

Again, making things up. Nobody celebrated the Cell no longer being used, but they DID understand the change and how significant it would be. Once more, I need you to show this response, cuz right now it's just you creating a situation for the sake of your argument.

"MS's E3 will only be Kinect focused."

Once more, SHOW IT. I seem to recall everybody HOPING it wouldn't be more TV crap. Had you talked about the reveal, that'd be something else entirely. And even then, it wouldn't be a flip-flop.

"Give the Vita a year!!!"

Yep, lots of people did say it. But lots also stated they never expected the Vita to sell like the 3DS(which is what you're implying).

"Vita doesn't need a price drop!!"

And it sure as hell didn't, at the time that was being said. Not the mention: where's the flop, here?

"Everyone was clapping at the Vita reveal!!"

About what? Just the price drop? PS Vita TV? The drop for the memory cards? And once more, I'm not hearing a goalpost that was moved.

Again, games STILL matter. Oh, and for the record, hardware has ALWAYS mattered, too. You even brought it up yourself when referencing PS fanboys apparently "moving the goalpost" about the Cell. So, now, you've contradicted yourself.

MS has supplied all the ammo against them anyone could need, and yet Sony's got plenty of bullet points of their own.

The amount of detail in Dead Rising 3 is vastly greater than the games you mentioned.

If you guys care about resolution and frame rate so much, why game on a console at all? Surely a PC would make you happier because you could play at 2560 x 1440p at 60fps (or higher). Neither of the next gen consoles can match that because HDTVs are only 1920 x 1080.
5h4h4b  +   868d ago
The answer to your question is bro all of us like to play with better graphics, resolution and fps ( if anyone is against my statement, I want to ask him why is there a need for any next gen system when you could have played ps2 and xbox games until this time) .

The thing is, all of us can't afford a gaming rig to play at such high resolutions and fps. So in the end we have to settle with consoles. I want a console which will provide me with better quality games, both in terms of gameplay and graphics to increase immersion. So far ps4 is doing that for me. Not only launch games are native 1080p ( killzone , resogun, driveclub etc) but I fully believe that Sony's first party studios are renowned for producing games with great graphics and gameplay. Sony's long lasting support for its platform is also proven.

boneso82  +   868d ago
How you perceive 30fps compared to 60fps depends massively on the type of TV you have and the quality of that TV.

A cheap LCD/LED TV will not be able to show off a game running at 60fps anything like a decent priced plasma. Plasma screens refresh at up to 600hz and are natively 60hz sets, they also handle motion so much better than LCD screens. Plasma don't suffer from motion blurring or processing artifacts.

But because of the motion blur on LCD screens they tend to display 30fps games better than plasma because plasma screens have to find a way of making a single frame fit within 2 frames of processing, it results in a double image effect on moving images which is quite distracting.

Because I am hoping that most games next gen will be running at 60fps I have invested in a new 60inch Samsung plasma to replace my 47inch LG LCD so everything is silky smooth and colours and black levels are so so much better than any LCD/LED screen. I tried 3 different 55inch LED screens (high end ones, over £1500 each) before going for the plasma (£1249) as the LED's just looked washed out and ridiculously blurry when displaying moving objects in comparison, I would recommend all next gen gamers to go for a similar plasma if possible for the best gaming (and movie) experience.

You basically get a better product for less money, now where have I heard that before...

I'll wait for the PC version. You know Capcom they rehash and re sell just about all of their titles.

Not sure about that, DR1 did not come to PC, only DR2.

You know what, I never really understood the debate between 30fps and 60fps. To tell the truth it looks about the same to me, so if DR3 is running smoothly at 30fps I am perfectly happy with that.
