Developer Explains Why MotoGP 14 Is Not 60fps On PS4, Real Deal Is The Resolution

"Milestone's Mot oGP 14 runs at 1080p and 30 frames per second on the PlayStation 4. Given that racing games usually run at 60 frames per second, why did the develpers opt for 30 fps?"

Like they need to explain lol, Because they can't get it to run at 60 FPS, and it's not artistic choice because it's 60 FPS on pc

user74029311449d ago

lol people these days...

zomg pacman released 30 fps 1080p why no 60? because said console is not that powerful lol ...

ShinMaster1449d ago

They should have sacrificed resolution instead of frame-rate.

CervantesPR1449d ago

Its not the PS4 fault, im sure they can achieve 1080P 60FPS. Its the devs fault.

imchuckbass1449d ago

Of course it's the PS4's fault. When specs that weak devs can only do so much.

@The_Infected how does that change the fact that it's weak hardware... it's weak... you can throw a fit all you want, but that's the truth.

ScottyHoss1449d ago

The point is its not THAT weak. There are already games at 1080p 60FPS, so why couldn't they do it?

C-H-E-F1449d ago

I'm sure with more time and or experienced devs, they could've got the fps up to 60fps, motogp isn't a demanding game what so ever compared to games that are running at 60fps @ 1080p on ps4 and xbox one. So, I def. put the blame on the dev tools and or dev experience. Maybe the engine isn't cut out for this gen? ANYWAYS....

“In my honest opinion the real deal is the resolution, rather than 1080p, a 4K texture makes a huge difference, especially on the new TVs that are starting to come out recently.”

The sooner xbox gamers realize that 900p won't give you that 1080p crispiness, the sooner we all can mellow out about this reso/fps war.

Darkstares1449d ago

There are 34 bikes on the screen meaning it would be quite hard to achieve 60fps and 1080p on the PS4. Maybe in the future after tweaking the system and getting to know the hardware more they could pull it off. Talking about Uncharted is comparing apples and oranges.

Eonjay1449d ago

The game is on PC Xbox 360, Vita, PS3 and PS4. Thats like saying that its the Xbox Ones fault that its not on the console. People relax. He said he was going for more detail over framerate. And yes with more power, he could have pushed the PS4 to 60 FPS, but its still early in the console life cycle.

Ripsta7th1449d ago

The Infected- you better stop saying that before it ends up biting you in the ass, they said they were aiming for 1080p 60fps not that they had alredy achieved it

fr0sty1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

Yes, but they also said aiming for TLOU's remake, and then they achieved it. I know the 2 games are in different leagues, but this is Naughty Dog we're talking about. They never cease to impress.

SonyPS41449d ago

PS4 uses a re-purposed PC GPU from 2012. Most PC gamers on a budget wouldn't bother considering using that. There will be limitations and throughout the lifecycle developers will choose between 1080p or 30FPS if they want to cram higher quality visuals. Many games already run at 30.

vishmarx1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

wihtout user patches,
pc couldnt even run dark souls and gta iv with playable framerates.
thats weak hardware too right?
pc's have trouble emulating wii games,probably has to do with pc being weaker than wii hardware ,right?

or maybe there's something known as optmization??
nobody is arguing about about pc.its power is unlimited and proportional to the money you throw at it.
it doesnt mean ps4 is weak for gaming.just young and unoptimized

I believe they feel the need to explain it because the ps4 is supposed to be a SUPER PC CONSOLE, 50% more powerful than the closest competitor. Also sony execs promised their lives if 1080p 60fps wasn't achieved on ps4.

@The Infected Nice edit, you initially told me to go play my xbox, but realized that made you look sour so you changed it to get a few likes. I am free to comment on any article, I merely responded to a comment.

chrisarsenalsavart1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

Why don't you free yourself of embarrassment?
Why do you feel the need to be on every single ps4 related articles. Just to troll everyone? so for the last time, ps4 is and always will be the most powerful and best selling console this gen.
But that doesn't mean x1 doesn't and won't have great games too. I actually own a PS4, a WIIU and an x1. Maybe u should too(if u can afford of course) just to make u realise how silly u ve behaving and to show you that gaming is so much more than pure brand loyalty.
Ask yourself one question
Did ps2 stopped Xbox having great games?did ps3 stopped x360 having great games?no
So what are u so afraid of??? Why do u spend more time trolling than gaming?

CaptainObvious8781449d ago

I thought the xbone had all these games to play?

So why are you here in a PS4 article trolling?

TheGreatAndPowerful1449d ago

It's a PS4 only game and they targeted 30fps? What the f***.

Eonjay1449d ago

Its on Xbox 360, PSVita, PS3 and PS4 as well as PC

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

The devs aren't that talented. Motogp looks like and up rezzed ps3 game to be honest. There's no way the game is that taxing that it has to look like that AND still only running 30fps.

Luckily, for them, it's a fun game.

CoTton_MoUtH1449d ago

The question should be why the hell isn't this in America. Like we a third world country

FanboyKilla1449d ago

lol when its xone its xone is soooo weak, it sucks, ps4 mo powa. now its the devs fault. lmfao imo its always the devs fault. if one man has already accomplished it, why are you telling me it cant be done? its the devs choice or lack of talent. sony fans scream 1080p blah blah blah, so thats what they get 1080p. i haven't seen one article, not even from ps, that says how fun a game is to play, that even looks fun to play. its all this 1080p looks amazing shi*. so is it a coincidence that im not having fun with my ps4? hmmmmm


reko1448d ago

xone is weak. what you talkin about lamefanboy? lol

Dee_911448d ago

I wonder how many people in here actually care about this game.. and not just another 60fps argument... I'm betting very few.

That was 30 FPS? Didn't even notice it. Of course, I didn't really like it, either. But still.

sAVAge_bEaST1449d ago

"Of course, I didn't really like it, either. But still."

-The thing with -60fps. is that it is very hard to notice, with the naked eye.

Smooth As Butter/Silky smooth Controls,. is the best way to describe it.. Hence TLoU.Remastered -we will be mind blown.. Especially the Multi-Player.

d_g1449d ago

no the 60fps is the Real Deal

Because it's racing game

Peloun1449d ago

Cant even run a racing game in 1080p and 60fps. Next gen is such a dissapointment

WeAreLegion1449d ago

Project CARS is 1080p/60fps on PS4. MotoGp 14 can run at 1080p/60fps on PS4, I'm sure. They just didn't feel it was necessary to spend extra time and money on it. Neither do I. The game runs just fine at 30 FPS. Seriously. Go download the demo.

GamingSinceThe80s1449d ago

Forza 5 was 60fps was it not?And that was a launch game on the less powerful Xboxone.The backgrounds left much to be desired.But the racing was very fast and smooth.

Peloun1449d ago

I think its more about the hardware than the time

OldDude1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

Project Cars sis 1080p/60 on everything, including WiiU. And no, 30fps is inexcusable for a racing game.

WeAreLegion1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

@GamingSinceThe80s and @OldDude

Yes. That's exactly what I'm saying. I agree with you guys. Why did I get disagrees?

30 FPS is inexcusable? Forza Horizon? Need For Speed Rivals? Driveclub? They all look and run incredibly, even at 30 fps. It's not inexcusable. You're just being a prick.

yewles11449d ago


"Project Cars sis 1080p/60 on everything, including WiiU. And no, 30fps is inexcusable for a racing game."

It's 720p/30 on Wii U.

Nekroo911449d ago

@Pelodun the game looks like a ps3 game, its not the hardware

Bennibop1449d ago

I own motogp 14 on ps4, it is a poorly coded game from a nothing studio so it's in ability to get it to 60fps is no surprise. It is no looker to be honest and it's 30fps has nothing to do with ps4 even x1 should be able to run it 60fps.

Spotie1449d ago

@Gaming: And yet the next Forza isn't 60fps. And the last one had cardboard crowds? Regardless of the framerate, no game on PS4 has resorted to cardboard crowds.

TheGreatAndPowerful1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

But...Uncharted 4, Deep Down, MGS5, PlanetSide 2 and others are 1080p/60fps. Devs didn't target 60fps at the beginning of development and they also probably thought users wouldn't care/notice a difference?

Rock-Lee1449d ago

Don't care about this game anyway. Played the demo and it looked HORRIBLE. It's just the PS3 version with a higher resolution. The developers should be ashamed of themselves asking $60 for this piece of shit.

incredibleMULK1449d ago

greatness awaits!....(mouthfart).

XiSasukeUchiha1449d ago

Thanks Lee, really now hmmm I knew my Sharingan was feeling something and this was it!
