I thought it's best for the filmic effect and cinematic experience mixed with next-gen QTE , 60fps and higher just ruins that.

He's talking about VR and he is absolutely right: 30fps is not sufficient for VR. It's much much worse than playing a game on a traditional display at 30fps. The doubling of latency alone makes it a no-go.

I have headaches if I play a game locked at 30fps.

I don't get headaches and I can still enjoy a game at 30fps just fine, but 60fps is definitely so much better. 60fps gives you more fluid visuals with better temporal resolution, along with much better controller response.

30fps for driving, fighting and fps shooter is a failure

Most racing games on consoles have been 30 fps historically . It's a few franchises after f zero X that have been 60 fps .

And 30fps can be fine for a SP experience , dépends on the game and what it offers as a trade off .

Other than that , i agree that , it's a must for core fighting games .

Anyone but FaceFuck would of sufficed.

I hope you cancelled your DK2 preorder. That'll make one less person I have to wait behind to get mine.

so is it 60 fps per eye? seem's like it has to do dual output. Or maybe its just a dbl image, and not really rendering 2x, anyone know for sure?

Its not 60 per eye. You are thinking of active shutter 3d technology. The rift is different. One screen with two slightly different images side by side. The DK2 Rift runs at 75hz. The Consumer Version Rift is rumored at 90hz.

So what is this slight difference in image for each eye? Is it just a different output setting on each screen, or is it rendered different?
TardcoreGamer  +   443d ago
The slight difference is the image on the right or left is slightly off by a few degrees. Just like how your eyes see depth in real life. Follow me?

Seriously. 30fps, it's a slide show!
