Can we just accept that it's 30fps by now? The game makes up for it. It looks very good and the weather effects are beyond amazing.

With frame drops or latency it is worth it considering the graphics its pushing.

When people play and experience DriveClub, the only thing that will matter is how much fun it is. Trust me, Im not a racing game die-hard, but Evolution's racers are some of the few that get me hooked.

MotorStorm Pacific Rift was 30fps and it felt damn intense and thrilling with every race. I expect DriveClub to have that same feeling with the sense of speed they know how to capture in their racing game's gameplay

@Abash My wife isn't a racing fan either but we played it at E3 this year and she was hooked. Lol I jokingly said, "Does that mean you'll play GT7 with me too?" She basically slapped me with her looks and said don't push your luck. That's what I get for marrying an FPS head =).

People might as well accept that 30 fps will be the norm this gen. Overall graphics quality is more important to most console gamers and developers/game publishers know this.

These articles about frame rate and resolutions are just unnecessary because it's nothing that we can affect. They are just used as fanboy fuel nowadays. If the people who whine in the comment-sections about this stuff REALLY cares about resolutions and frame rates - maybe it's time to get a PC?

I agree with your PC comment, as I game on PC, PS4, and Wii U currently. Im no graphics whore, but last I checked 1080p 60fps is the norm on PS4. I suspect as console potentials are realized 1080/60 will be norm on X1. I hope at least. Wishing ill will on any gamers experience is ignorant.

GundalfDeGrej1181d ago

It was more of a response to The_Infected. If we excuse Driveclub because the game looks good then what hope do we have for the future when developers are forced to outdo themselves again?

And as much as I hate to sound like NextLevel, most of the 60 fps games in that list are cross-gen. When last-gen is abandoned and developers try to push graphics as much as they can, chances are they'll abandon 60 fps for the sake of prettier screenshots on the game cover.

Clogmaster1181d ago

Going from 60fps to 30fps is quite jarring initially. But after playing for 5 minutes of 30fps, you kind of get used to it.

I would still like it if there was a 60fps option.

the game looks really awesome and i cant wait to play it on surround sound i need a ps4,, but with that said sony contradicts their studios look at shu last week saying can i say 60 fps, remember that or the naughty dog devs talking about 60 fps being a must and how important it is, evolution has made a good looking game very good looking game with lots of details and when it releases i have no doubt it will be the best looking game on the ps4, but we need to stop dwelling on 60 fps as if consoles are master race PCs

Because the ps4 can't unless they downgrade it.

I know Driveclub is going to be incredible, 30fps has never been an issue for me in any game (Destiny included) if there's no noticible drops or input lag. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

user74029311181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

man I'm perfectly content with 30fps because this game looks absolutely stunning. uncharted 4 and drive club and the order are THE next gen games that like it.

@dread as a sony fan I'm very happy with 30fps with this game, i would rather have that then 15-20 fps from a roman hack and slash game.

@ghostnappa, yes i am aware

Ghost_Nappa1181d ago

You do realize Uncharted 4 is 1080p60fps right?

lsujester1181d ago

It's what they're aiming for. I have faith it will be, but don't jump the gun.

Christopher1181d ago

Yeah, they say they are aiming for it. But, I'm not sure they'll get it in either SP or MP without taking a lot from elsewhere. I'll be glad to be proven wrong, because then I can begin questioning why other, lesser looking games can't do what ND is able to do.
