DriveClub Right Now is “Running at 1080p@30fps”, Delay Statement Had Nothing to do With Watch Dogs

"When it comes to narrowing down the DriveClub release date to more than ‘early 2014′ the developer said, “There are many things that need to be confirmed before we can be more specific.”" - PSLS (Driveclub, PS4, Watch Dogs)

Project Gotham series is the best more arcade style racer with real supercars I have played on the current generation, even now PGR3 and 4 are just brilliant games. They look fantastic, they handle superb, the game is immense fun online and off.

Its 30FPS, and I don't care. It doesn't matter. It wouldn't be a much much better game if it ran 60FPS. It would be smoother, but the performance at 30FPS is so good and so solid and stable it doesn't really matter in the slightest. The motion blur is beautiful high quality and smoothes out any doubts you are playing a class act.

If Driveclub looks this pretty which is fantastic and runs rock solid 30FPS with zero screen tearing then it'll matter not.

If it means to be a sim, 60FPS matters because you want that sort of response and faster physics engine. But if it isn't, its never been a deal breaker.

It's amusing how important things like fluidity of a racer is being replaced by fog and moving clouds and talks of lighting that matters very little when you are going at 200km/h.

Funny how next gen now means sacrificing a gameplay feature for looks. How about a game that does ALL those things while maintaining a fluid frame rate? Now that game I'd crown next gen racer, not just the decide based on what the developers on my favorite console are able to do.

driveclub looks to be a good game with nice fog.

However, I was expecting much more from the ps4.

30fps for a racer on ps4 is just not that impressive, especially after all the noise that was made about the magic of ps4 50%+.

I was really hoping the additional development time resulting from the delay would sort this out, but it looks like its gonna chugg along at 30fps after all.

Here is a comparison of Forza 4 and Forza 5. Forza 5 looks very much like its current gen counterpart. No big difference. Just the lighting and slightly more detail coupled with it being 1080p @ 60FPS as opposed to 720p @ 60FPS...

And whatever you do, don't compare gameplay skill...

At least the Forza has a guiding line just like what Gran Turismo has.

IMO, the background of the races on the PS4, at least for those 2 tracks, looks like it has far more details, looks richer due to the GPU.

I'm guessing they could make some tracks that are 60fps. I don't know.

If a Racing game wants to compete with the best, it needs 60FPS. Most of the above comments are literally saying it's ok to have ****er gameplay so better graphics can be done. Sorry, Racing games are one of the Genre's that need the 60. ****ing shame I won't be getting a racing fix on Ps4 for a while. Dammit I wish GT6 was made for Ps4 originally.

You need to be quiet about this pre baked lighting nonsense. I've seen you slither into countless Forza articles and regurgitate the same old tired nonsense over and over again.

@nuke

FPS isnt such a big issue when the game looks as good as it does. The delay may have been to polish the visuals and sort out the gameplay. The early build I played looked mediocre at best. What I'm seeing now looks like it's footage for a completely different game.

Enemy  +   425d ago | Well said
^ What kind of simulation ignores the fact that there's a such thing as night in the world? I almost feel bad for you Forza kids. Turn 10 doesn't even have the tech to create night races because they've gotten so used to placing fake and bake daytime lighting.

And Septic, for having as many bubbles as you have, couldn't possibly be more misinformed. I've seen you try to call me out before and it's failed. Go ahead and confirm Forza's dynamic lighting and fully rendered in 3D tracks. All you'll find is static.

What Turn 10 are willing to sacrifice for 60fps is truly pathetic. But of course, reading the comments here from woodwork Xbox maggots, they really have convinced the flock that more shine = better graphics. The biggest critics are always the most empty-headed, hence the absolutely uneducated responses.

By the time Turn 10 figures out how to properly model their games, they'll be in last place. So much for realism.

Imo one of the most important differences between Driveclub an Forza is the handling: pretty much all our PS3 wheels are supported by Driveclub while Forza doesn't support any of the Xbox 360 wheels, not even the official Forza wheel from Fanatec that lauched early last year.

Wheel, pedals, few buttons, stick perhaps. Should be compatible. Forcing fans to buy new wheels and not offering a good affordable wheel like the Logitech GT wheel, imo even fans should not support that kind of BS. You're not playing, you're getting played.

I don't see your point. Every single game is best experienced at a higher resolution and frame rate.

DriveClub looks great the way it does now even at 30fps. If DriveClub were to release today at the stage it's currently in I know damn well that if my experience with the game ended up being bad it wouldn't be because of the game's visuals that's for sure.

All that should matter now is how the game plays according to your previous notions about frame rates and resolutions not being important (which I actually agree with).

By the way, isn't DriveClub an arcade racer anyway? If it is considered one, it would make your comments even more hilarious.

With all the power the PS4 has this shouldn't be a problem to up the framerate for a game like this.

No need to make excuses as to why it's only in 30fps now, I'm sure in a week we'll get another article saying they upped the framerate.

It's just a strange design choice. A racing game is about precision control and response. Handcrafted backdrops and dynamic weather are nice, but should only be achieved after maxing out performance.

The typical racing fan would choose 60fps over 30fps any day of the week.

Personally, I'd rather play at a lower resolution than a lower framerate... Gameplay first.

This really should not be an issue for a game like driver club. It is in the same game type as Forza Horizon and for me this game looked amazing and was one of the best arcade racers with real cars of last gen.

But what I do find funny is the way people act on here. When the Ryse developers said it was not 60fps at 1080 the sony fan boys were all over it like a shot saying the power of the one is nothing compared to the PS4 and now this has come out they are saying its not an issue for this game.

At the end of the day if the game is fun to play and make looks amazing when playing it then what is the issue. This gen is starting to make me wonder if there are any gamers left out there and its just full of people who want to say that what they own is better than anyone else's and its really is turning into a sad place to come on here.

tetsuhana  +   425d ago
It's not "doubling the performance" unless the very best they ca do right now is stable 30fps. If they chose to have a variable frame rate it would probably fluctuate between 30 and 60, but I'm sure they want to try to lock it in at 60.

They also said "At this stage" the game is running at 1080p@30fps, implying that the frame rate isn't final. Not sure why everyone is acting like this is an announcement of the final fps.
uncharted56  +   425d ago
They did say that they were aiming for 60 fps and would hit it sometimes but were not quite there. This game got delayed to not only make it 60fps but apparently things like dynamic weather were missing that they wanted to add in. Personally I am glad its delayed because now they can get the game looking and playing better.
Lboogieskells  +   425d ago
I really want 60fps, but they seem to be using alot of PR speak regarding the current specs at 1080p 30 frames. Seems like they're trying to make it sound more appealing each time.

If they lock it down to 30fps they should be able to include even more detail (they'll have spare time in each frame).
ginsunuva  +   425d ago
If we had a geforce g-sync tech for our tv's and consoles, we could change the refresh rate to match the output, and the framerate could thus be whatever it wants.

So instead of devs trying to either get 30 or 60, they could have it vary in between and the monitor will be fine.

It's as much about the beauty of the thing you're driving, as it is about the world around you.

That's not how it works... It's much tougher to try and achieve 60FPS on new hardware. Give devs time and they'll start to unlock the potential. Not to mention, they've said they're trying for it, and have had the game running close to 60 at times. So I'd say it is very possible it'll be 1080p/60FPS by the time it launches.

It would be nice to see this game run at 60 fps.

I think getting it to at least 40 fps locked can create a close enough illusion of 60 fps to still enjoy the control response time.

Those who say 30 fps is enough, granted to the eye it's still comfortable, but don't forget we still need controller latency. The higher the frame the better the response.

Also gaming at 60 fps vs 30 fps it's much less stressful for your eyes, since they work less at completing the sequence.

I doubt any1 wouldn't rather have 60 fps over 30 fps.

It's a good start for a launch title(or near launch title) but I hope their next installment includes 60 fps:)

This is on my buy list either way!
andyboy13  +   424d ago
The problem with 40fps is that its not 60fps or a multiple of it. Vsync is just that Vertical Sync. HDMI sends 60fps regardless so then you need to match that image sent. If you can't, you drop it down and get 2 frames of the same image. 40fps would result in tearing because the image couldn't match the TV refresh rate. That's assuming my understanding of vsync is right, which it may not be :) The idea with gsync is that the TV actually changes it's refresh rate to the exact fps to never have tearing again. I really hope it becomes standard, not nvidia bound as I have ati myself

I didn't say Vertical synchronization. I merely said locked to 40 fps, aka not drop below it.

It might result in tearing, but it is a multiple of 120 and 240. So I think it would a nice option.

What would be even better is if they gave the option to disable v-sync like they did in Bioshock 2 for ps3.

I dont get the people that claim this game isnt impressive graphically. Sure it doesnt look as good as Killzone Shadow Fall but it still looks really good

and if you think that this game can be done on current gen then you seriously need your eyes checked
WickedLester  +   425d ago
Part of the problem may be that we've seen so little of it! All that Evolution showed at E3 and TGS was the "ghost" mode. Plus to me the graphics, while they look pretty, just aren't very dynamic. Not a whole lot is going on as far as track side detail goes. I understand that with a racing game, especially one that tries to go for realism, there's only so much you can throw on the screen to catch your eye. Still, the trackside detail doesn't really "pop."

Quote "At this stage the game is running at 1080p@30fps, which at face value really defies how fluid it feels and how stunning it looks. We’ll be recording another direct feed video for you soon, to show you an update on the outstanding 1080p graphics and racing, because the authentic and dynamic lighting system has come a long way since you saw it last. :-)"

I have to say i loved how they say the authentic and dinamic lighting...!!You know its not BAKED!GET IT!

And for any one that dont know the diference and how dificult an resource heavy and diferent from baked is dinamic lighting is and stupid compare some racers that are about to hit the market soon.

it does look great but it doesnt look better then forza and this is ont eh worlds most powerful system and like every is asking , why cant they hit 60fps, and since they said 30fps, now its ok but if forza was 30fps you guys would be going apeshit on us
deadfrag  +   425d ago
Because contrary to the baked lightning in Forza ,DrivE Club uses REALISTIC dinamic lightining,that is a resource hog if used.Not to mention heather effects ....Look i love Forza Games but lets not compare the new tech thats been used in DC to the old tech that is still been seen in Forza.

All of the people claim baked lighting , then why did all reports say it's amazing visually and one of the best lights on a next gen console game

I think it's important not to leave out the full statement of "At this stage the game is running at 1080p@30fps" as "at this stage" says a lot more seeing as how they've already made it known they are aiming for 60fps, which sounds like they are still going for that 60fps but just not at this stage
nades_all_night  +   425d ago
Shhh.. To much sense is being made around here.

Back to the matter at hand. I absolutely agree with you. They have made it pretty clear 60fps is their goal and all of their comments have lead us to believe nothing out of the ordinary is taking place contrary to that.

The delay is probably due to wanting to meet this goal.
NateCole  +   425d ago
1. Drive Club is a new ip.
2. PS4 is a new console.
3. There will be 30fps games not because of hardware but because of budget and time constraints for devs.

You xbox fans are just grasping at straws.

The fact that COD and BF4 runs at higher res on PS4 should shut up lot up but no.

Look i have not said anything about this difference before but you lot are really asking for it.
n4gamingm  +   425d ago
cod and bf4 resolution is not confirmed i'm gonna wait on thats see if xbox really screwed me over before i cancel my preorder based on rumors.
DeadlyFire  +   424d ago
BF 4 its confirmed 720p for X1 and 900p for PS4.

CoD is confirmed to run at 1080p on PS4 and told we don't need to know on X1 resolution. I expect Ghosts runs at 900p on X1.

Doesn't necessarily mean its all bad though even with slightly less resolution you keep the same visuals. Which is the reason for using less of a resolution over toning down the graphics.

"The fact that COD and BF4 runs at higher res on PS4 should shut up lot up but no."

Nothing fact about that. Dont be surprised if turns out not to be true. Especially from what people who have actually played BF4 od xb1. They say xb1 has the best version.

Funky Town_TX  +   425d ago
1080p @ 60 should be the standard this gen. I will wait before I take the leap to PS4. I hope that infamous on PS4 is 1080p @ 60.
n4gamingm  +   425d ago
people keep forget that forza is one of the few car games on CONSOLE that has a very deep level of customization and as of right now drive club hasn't showed much on what you can do to the cars. So my opinion is drive club will definitely look better thats probably why they dropped to 30fps use more resources on graphics but forza will have a deeper level of customization which i prefer.

just my thoughts on the matter.
isarai  +   425d ago
they didn't "drop" anything, they are still aiming for 60fps, they just haven't gotten there yet
ironmonkey  +   425d ago
Bad enough xone can't even hit 1080p. Makes that console look ancient already.
n4gamingm  +   425d ago
unconfirmed but i do believe it even tho im getting a xbox one lol
ambientFLIER  +   425d ago
Forza 5 is 1080P.......
DeadlyFire  +   424d ago
It can, but it just needs to tone down some graphics to do so. Which is why developers are using a lesser resolution on the console. To keep the graphics on the same level with the same frames. Only other option for developers is to adopt 30 fps on X1 or use the Cloud power. Froza is one example of 1080p on the X1. First party studios like GG, and Turn 10 got their hands on kits early. So they both run 1080p 60 fps. Its very likely that the 3rd party developers have not had enough experience with the hardware to push out 1080p just yet. It could all change in a year.

So.....

PS4 running Driveclub at 1080P/30FPS OMG OMG NEXT GEN

XB1 running Forza at 1080P/60FPS OMG OMG LAME PRERENDERED XBOX NON DYNAMIC LIGHTING GARBAGE PS4 RULES!!!!

You ps4 fans are the biggest bunch of hypocrites around. Turn 10 wouldn't have had an issue putting in dynamic lighting and weather if their goal was only 30fps. That's what happened with Forza 4, too. They said they could have done it, but the 60fps was more important.
specialguest  +   424d ago
Hey! You're on n4g. Remember, 30fps doesn't matter unless it's an XB1 game. Stay tune for the next couple of days when 60fps matters again =D
Hicken  +   424d ago
But now this is a new gen, with new hardware. For some reason, Turn 10 STILL decided not to shoot for dynamic lighting and weather?

Hell, they released four games last gen. Three, excluding Horizon. You're seriously telling me they couldn't add to Forza what's been on GT since the first game in night racing? That despite their familiarity with less complicated hardware, Forza 4 couldn't do either/or(weather/lighting) at 60fps?

And now, on much more powerful next gen hardware, they're STILL not gonna give it a shot? GT5 pulled it all off, and only rarely dropped below 60fps(I won't say it's never done so, because it does happen). I imagine that'll be an even rarer occurrence in GT6.

But Turn 10 moves to the XB1 and it's okay that they don't even try? Meanwhile, Evolution is shooting for 1080p, 60fps, and all the dynamics you can handle. And they're not even Sony's top racing developer(not that they're bad at all).

What a weak and pathetic argument you fail to make.
ambientFLIER  +   423d ago
GT5 pulled off weather and night, yes, HOWEVER, it drops frames very frequently, sometimes to 30 or even less (by the way, digital foundry tested GT6 and saw it dropped frames even worse, due to the small increase in resolution), AND it's not true 1080P, AND the cars are nowhere near Forza 5 level (which is to be expected, being current gen).

Who says Turn 10 didn't try? I think they are just on a tight deadline to launch this game alongside the console and can't afford the extra optimizing. Next Forza, however, should have no excuse not to have these features.

Knushwood Butt  +   424d ago
Why are you even in this thread? You are clearly not a PS4 fan.

Yeah yeah, Turn 10 sacrificed a bunch of good stuff so they could hit 1080P/60FPS.

So, without any good reason to be here in a DriveClub thread, I can only assume you are here to try and ease your butthurt.
kingPoS  +   425d ago
Perhaps there was another reason for the delay. We'll just have to find how Drive Club turns out in 2014.
horndog  +   425d ago
30fps@1080p?? That's not the real full hd experience and it isn't next gen. I'm just using the same ps4 fanboy logic used to rate xbox1 games. 30fps is weak sauce and prefer what T10 offers.
ambientFLIER  +   425d ago

someone plz explain to me if the game ran at 60 frames per second what would i notice differently?
larrysdirtydrawss  +   425d ago
driveclub looks to be a good game with nice fog.

However, I was expecting much more from the ps4.

30fps for a racer on ps4 is just not that impressive, especially after all the noise that was made about the magic of ps4 50%+.

I was really hoping the additional development time resulting from the delay would sort this out, but it looks like its gonna chugg along at 30fps after all.

bill gates is that you?????? if you seen the latest footage,it looks phenomenal,,and the frame raste looks silky smooth..everything shines,especially the environment.. in forza 5,the environments looks exactly like forza 4
mochachino  +   424d ago
This gen is heading in the wrong direction.

60 fps at 720p looks better when playing than 1080p at 30fps
StrangerX  +   424d ago
vulcanp
To be honest you do have a point but i personally played many racing game and the one that always leave the best impression after been a fun racer of course is the frame rate. After playing forza horizon on the X360 and then decided to play the last need for speed cause it looked good from my friend automatically I started on the gameplay it really hit me how fluid forza's frame rate was compare to need for speed at 30fps that i just stopped playing it. Not that it was a bad game NO! Its just that the frame rate for me was a turn off. My opinion but, on racing games be it arcade or simulation there a lot more appreciated at higher frame rates. :)

Last Generation, it was "XGC". This generation it is "60 FPS"
