As i said in the other article, i would much rather have 60fps without the power hogging hair TressFX. But if it's a stable 30 then it's all good.

"tbh if I had the hardware to max it out I would rather play the PC version."

If you have a good enough PC for tressFX and 60fps then you might as well, it's super cheap on PC too.

Edit: What with the disagrees? You people prefer fancy hair to 60fps?

tbh if I had the hardware to max it out I would rather play the PC version. I don't like the new face to me it's more of a *downgrade* than up and the other improvements don't seem like a big deal to warranty the asking price currently.

But yh I second that tressfx is nice but not at the cost of half the framerate if they could get it to run well at 60fps.
WalterWJR  +   758d ago
The disagrees are probably from your assumptions that TressFX is a hardware hog. It used to be in it's very early stages but now it hardly makes any difference.
Hatsune-Miku  +   758d ago
Is it 1080p at 30 fps in order to have parity on both xbox one and ps4 because the ps4 by fact is 50% more powerful than the xbox one.
AliTheSnake1  +   758d ago
The hair TressFX is so ugly and out of place, After going through mud and dirt, her hair looks like she just got out of a salon, with fans working around the hour all over her head.

For the 30fps and 60fps thing. I prefer 30fps. Because we all know, Nextgen only games will Have to be in 30fps. So why spoil yourself by getting used to 60 fps in a third person game? (Going from playing in high frames to playing in low frames is not easy, PC gamers' constant FPS bitching is a proof)

its console gaming, most devs will rather pish for graphics and effects rather than 60fps unless the gameplay will really benefit from 60fps.

i would have purchased this game if it was 60 fps, but i guess i give this a pass, or buy it digitally when it is cheap.

Way to assume there buddy! For one, im English, so it will cost me £37 to buy new (£17 with my Amazon discount card). Secondly, no where did i say that i was satisfied with paying full retail.

" that csnt even run at above 30 fps"

DOESN'T run at 60fps, not can't. As i explained below, the devs make the decision of 30fps with effects or 60fps with less effects.

I didn't "disagree" with you, because your statement is your opinion, but I do in fact disagree with you. For me, I'd rather than the fancy hair than the 60fps. I've been gaming for decades - I can deal with 30fps. But fancy hair is new and innovative, and increases the immersion for me as I play the game.

"the lack of 60FPS alongside the 1080p resolution makes the definitive edition much less attractive. This may act as a deal breaker for those who have been thinking about “double dipping” on the title. It’s also harder to justify the full retail price-tag when resolution is really the only upgrade."

That's exactly how I feel... I really was hoping for 60fps@ 1080p, that would have convinced me to play it again... oh well, Deal broken for me.

Two things are clear here:

1) It seems to be like a HD-remake (Or Super next gen HD) and those games always sell for at least half price if not less than new games.

2) If the fps and resolution are the same on PS4/XB1 then they have gimped it for parity sake. We all know which machine is the most powerful now.

You can not please all the people all of the time so stop trying. Max out the game for each platform and get a bit of self-respect!
SharnOfTheDEAD  +   757d ago
Despite the frames and what not, I'd happily pay full price again for the DF Edition because it is a good game and was one of my fav titles from last year. Honestly anyone in 2 minds about this should try it out. Tomb Raider at it's finest. If your judging on buying a game because it's 30 or 60 frames.... well.... you have my pity
JsonHenry  +   757d ago
This is 30fps WITHOUT certain lighting effects and and Physx.

TressFX really made the character model seem more real though. The blowing in the wind or moving as she moved made for a much more cinematic feel.
1upgamer99  +   757d ago
I don't do PC gaming much anymore. Too much hassle, but If my PC could handle it I would rather have 60fps...

I feel like the developers are lazy. I mean common "definitive" version at 30fps on perfectly capable hardware. I don't care if the PS4 is more powerful than Xbox1, I am sure both could have handled 60fps.

I am not buying this game anyway, been there done that. I am not even that impressed with the enhancements, and the asking price for an upgrade to a game I played not long ago, does not seem worth it.
Play2Win  +   758d ago
Jesus Gentlemen ...

you don't need 60 FPS for this game while playing with Pad. I play this bad boy on PC with 60 FPS just because it feels much better with mouse and keyboard. But be glad it is 1080p with nice graphics. Sweet locked 30 FPS are good enough.
starchild  +   758d ago
Of course you don't "need" 60fps to enjoy a game. But then again you don't "need" to play videogames at all.

Just because you don't need something doesn't mean it isn't better to have it.

Every kind of game is better at 60fps than 30fps. The temporal resolution is much clearer (i.e. how well you can see things while there is motion on screen, which is most of the time in a video game). And the latency is much lower therefor the controller response is much quicker and, well, more responsive.

I do think going for 30fps is still the better trade-off for most console games. Doubling the framerate literally doubles the power needed to run the game.
GarrusVakarian  +   758d ago
For once, i agree with starchild when he says that every game will be better at 60fps ( but i also agree with your point that not every game NEEDS to be 60fps. I also agree with starchild when says that 30fps will be the best trade-off for many console games.

PC gamers get the luxury of 60fps for every game (if they have a good enough PC). Whereas consoles devs are going to have to decide which is more important, 30fps with bells and whistles or 60fps with less bells and whistles. Personally, i care much less about 60fps third person games than i do first person games.

Well,the game is an action adventure,it's not an fps game where frame rate matters most,it's a third person shooter,a visual upgrade @ native res is more appreciated than frame rate in this case tbh as long as it's at buttery smooth 30fps.

Although it would have been nice to have both,but I guess it's down to limitations of hardware.

windblowsagain  +   757d ago

Both XB1/PS4 IS 1080p - 30fps.

PS4 has twice the POWER of XB1 and could do 60fps no problem. It's either to keep parity or Ms has thrown a few quid their way.
angelsx  +   758d ago
Another next gen game 30fps.Cmon . .
GarrusVakarian  +   758d ago
I think we will see a lot of this in this gen. Devs will decide what's more important in their opinion, 30fps with effects such as 4k textures, tressfx, 1080p, subsurface scattering, increased particle effects etc etc...or 60fps with less effects.

Not saying i agree with the devs in this instance, just telling you to expect it. To me, it depends on the game, i enjoyed AC4 at solid 30fps...but i don't think i would enjoy BF4 half as much as i do if it was 30fps (hated it on 360/ps3). It's all about compromising with the tech you have.

Battlefield? If so, it was definitely sub-30fps. It was horrible. Whereas GTA5 is also sub-30fps a lot of the timer and i can play that game for hours on end. It's just way more important for me for an FPS to run at 60fps than a TPS.

What is it that people like you don't grasp that a game doesn't need to be 60fps unless it requires fast twitch, which Tomb raider certainly does not..
someoneagain6  +   758d ago
You can't even twitch on a controller. Turn up the sensitivity on the joystick (if it's available) and make your character do a 360 degree turn instantly. You can't.

Over time, games have had to be designed in a way that compensated for this. That's why most modern third-person shooters chest-high walls and cover mechanics, so you can take your time aiming.
Irishguy95  +   757d ago
Tomb Raider was WAY better at 60FPS than 30FPS. I lowered the GPHX on my PC to get 60FPS. Same goes for Mass Effect(Didn't need to lower graphics for that though). Mass effect is MUCH better on PC than the consoles.

Before ME I didn't think 60 FPS mattered much for Tps. But yes, yes it ****ing does.

It's not about 'needing'. Its about which is better and TPS are alot better with 60FPS too

To be honest I believe the fact that I played TR 60FPS is one of the bigger reasons I thought the game was better than Uncharted series

Btw, Tomb Raider on PC was pretty demanding for a multiplatform game. For example, my PC wiped the floor with Skyrim and Mass effect. Tomb Raider though, not at all. The recommended requirements are quite a decent amount above the Next gen consoles. GPU needs more power, CPU needs alot more power. I'd say it's a feat to have this game running at 1080P with a solid 30FPS

starchild  +   758d ago
You act like it is surprising. I don't understand why, since MOST next gen console games are 30fps.

And Tomb Raider's visuals on the PC at high settings are right up there with any next gen console game I have seen. If the definitive version is as good as that, or even better in some ways, it is not at all surprising that it can only run at 30fps on next gen consoles.

specialguest  +   757d ago
30fps will forever be present on console gaming. Leave it up to devs and they will more than likely choose graphics over framerate. Back in the PS1 days, there were games that ran at 60fps like Bloody Roar. It's been said before many time, 60fps is always possible, but devs will not sacrifice graphics due to hardware limitations.

But there are assets in this version that is in no other version. Everything from a remade Lara Croft to little details like the wind and vegetation that move.

Enough reasons for me to pick up what is a great game and play it one more time on the PS4.
DoctorJones  +   757d ago
Call me crazy, but if I wanted to enjoy the game again I'd just play it again on my pc at 60fps. I don't think the 'extra assets' and wind details would be enough for me to pay again.

Why anyone would want to pay through the nose when they already own the game is beyond me.

EDIT:Also - If they make this available as an upgrade to buy for pc in the future, won't you feel like a bit of a fool? Or would you buy that as well?

The difference being The Last Of Us is a LAST GEN game...LAST GEN, released on 7 year old hardware, Tomb Raider is also a LAST GEN game designed for 7-8 year old hardware, being re-released on brand new hardware at 60 dollars with the tagline "Definitive" yet it run's in 30fps, Killzone SF looks light years better, yet GG has that game running in 60fps, AC4 another last gen game for some strange reason runs at 60fps 1080p on PS4 and it looks better graphically, THERE IS NO EXCUSE .

It blows my mind when people complain about PC Elitists, especially when dev's pull sh!t like this, right now PC gamers are laughing because they payed LESS for a version of game that run's 1080p 60fps, I understand not every game is gonna be 1080p, 60fps this gen, but if we're porting last gen games there should be zero excuse for this.

So it's 30fps, the standard for games. Most of you people can't tell the difference between 60fps and don't pretend that you're so used to 60fps that 30fps looks bad to you. Infamous second son is 30fps but that's ok, I have no problem with the STANDARD.
COD isn't a graphically intensive game. So it's not hard for them to achieve 60fps. Gamers on next gen have to choose, higher graphical fidelity or smoother gameplay. And honestly it depends on the game. I'm sure no one will be complaining when the next uncharted is revealed to be 30fps in exchange for the graphics.

COD isn't graphically intensive by design. Visuals were compromised to keep the framerate high. What's wrong with raising the standard? There's a GPU that costs about the same as the XBO that can run the new Thief at 4K, and these "next-gen" consoles can't even push 1080p/60 on a last-gen game. Lol.

You're kidding, right? Difference between 30fps and 60fps is gigantic. And yes, 30fps does look bad. I stopped playing Dragon's Dogma on PS3 because of the terrible resolution and framerate. Well, not only because of that, the game was simply a little boring, but the technical limitations played a big part on my decision. After playing so many RPGs on PC with 1080p and 60fps (and often in 3D), PS3's 720p and 30fps is unbearable.

I have almost the same setup as you, except with an i5 2500k instead.

4X super sample anti-aliasing is massive. I've never considered anti-aliasing settings as part of the basic graphical settings.

When I say I can run such and such game at Ultra settings it doesn't mean that I am running it with 8xSSAA. I can use SSAA through RadeonPro or the Catalyst Control Center but I don't think it is reasonable to have to max out SSAA in order to say you are maxing out a game's graphics.

SSAA is very demanding and it's basically there when you have a lot of performance surplus and you want to get the most pristine image quality possible.

The console versions with their post-process anti-aliasing don't even approach that kind of clarity and fidelity.

BF4 is 900p on PS4 with poor Anti Aliasing and last gen draw distance.

They pushed the visuals on Tomb Raider because the levels are mostly pretty limited in space. Although the limited power made them sacrifice the framerate.

Yeah, IMO some games just look weird in 60 fps. The COD franchise always looked a bit odd to me, when they started locking it into 60 fps ; BF 3 and 4 look/play much more natural, IMO. It's the same way I feel about Blu-ray movies...especially on the new LED HDTVs...and how strange live action movies look, compared to cinema.

Now, if TR:DE is 30 fps AND has screen tearing and poor AA, then THAT would be a deal breaker for me.

You know why CoD is one of the best selling games ever created?

Because the freakingly locked their framerate to 60FPS at all costs. That gives you a feel of playing which is outstanding for FPS. They always cutting down effects etc. just to get steady 60 FPS.

I actually really want to play this game, considering I didn't last year...

But I simply can't pay $60 for it.

If you never bought this game on any other platform, then why the hell would you have a problem paying full price for a brand new experience??? Especially considering it's the best version and includes all the DLC...

It's not your business what platforms they release it on and what they charge, as long as it's new to you…you're getting the full package, so shouldn't you pay full price?

I'm a little disappointed that it isn't 60fps, but I'm pleased it's 1080p. I'm not cancelling my pre-order for this bit of news.

these "next-gen" consoles are so disappointedly weak. =/

I personally think it's laziness.
I mean, Yakuza Ishin runs at native 1080p at 60fps on the PS4. In the beginning of a new gen, devs tend to use brute force on the hardware. Not making use of it. Later on, devs will feel the need to actually optimize and stuff. It happens every gen.
Sometimes, it all comes down to the devs. Not to mention this is a last gen port.

This game is just brute forcing the new hardware, not making use of it. This is designed for last gen.
In this genre there is nothing wrong with 30 fps. Of course 60 would be better, but if it's rock solid 30 with no input lag, then the lack of 60 not taking away the immersion. Anybody who skipped this game last gen should go and buy it. It is nominated for GOTY for a reason.
