A gameplay video showing Xbox One and PS4 console games at 60 frames per second via the world's most popular video sharing website.
And 1080p is better than 720p what the point of this article again ?
shrug.. some people on N4G like to pretend like 30 FPS is perfectly acceptable for most games. I beg to differ. 60 will always make the game smoother and better in the end. Just like how 1080p will make a game better looking than a 720p game. We settle for 30FPS just like we settled for 720p last gen.
"Settling" had nothing to do with it, the 360/ps3 weren't powerful enough to do anything other than 2d platformers at 1080p
30 is acceptable and 30fps gives devs more freedom to code better graphics and effects
Its not so much about settling, a lot of people say that there is no real difference between the two, and now we got devs saying 30 fps is better. I mean, a consistent 30 fps is playable but cmon people, how can anyone say its the same or better than 60?
@Troy we never had 60 frames vid before. And it looks phenomenal.
but muh cinematic experience
You don't need a presentation to prove something like this. I think everyone knows this, just some want to either troll, or defend their favourite dev as they get ****** destroyed by said dev. Being a 'yes person' is becoming a past time these days...eww.. As for me, I'm trying beef up my rig so 120fps becomes my standard.
*Sigh* this type of elitism is just so sad. Who comes up with standards? Only 7 years ago people were arguing if HD was even beneficial or if 16:9 could replace 16:10 which replaced 4:3. Do we just throw away games because it isn't to your 'standard'? Ironically, your 'standards' is just being a 'yes person' to corporations trying to upsell merch because profit margins have bottom barreled on existing product lines. Please, how about we discuss if the game is graphically acceptable qualitatively, not quantitatively. There is a reason devs feel 30fps is good enough for their vision.
...Are you serious? The reason why devs like 30fps is because they can allow choppier animations within the game. Here's what I propose, if a pc can HANDLE 60fps+, why not let people take advantage of that? Instead you got companies like ubisoft and bethesda who are capping the fps. Expecting and wanting quality isn't elitism. I love how you point fingers and say my opinion is wrong and that I'm an elitist then go on to proclaim your opinion as fact.
Saying "everyone" is pushing it, there are many special folks out there ;). Yeah there are trolls, apologists, some that religiously defend their dev/console of choice right or wrong, etc, and then there are those that refuse to kiss their starfish. More important than res or fps (for me/within reason) is the quality of the game, is it fun/(balanced if MP), mostly bug free, good servers/support, not hacked up to sell DLC crap, not bloated with garbage to inflate playtime, etc. I'd rather have 60 fps but sometimes 30 is fine for me, I even liked* BF3 on the 360 and that was something like 720p at 30. BF4 was 900p(?) at 60 and I liked* that too (* minus the bugs, bad balancing, etc, etc). I don't care about 4k either, I want VR now, Sony's first then PC.
60 frames is truly what every next gen console should be the standard.
Can't wait to play Uncharted 4 at 60 FPS!
All Ratchet & Clank games got grilled for not being HD, as Isomniacs goal was FPS over Pixels..... Oh, those times....I remember all the PS3/Insomiac hate.... Lets put this all in perspective , Yes? http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
I just don't see why 60 fps can't be an option... why can't console games include graphics presets that adjust to 30 or 60 fps gameplay...
Because console gamers like simplicity and convenience and love for companies to treat them like idiots
also 70 FPS is better than 60 FPS. You can tell because the number is higher.
And it is.
70fps on a 60hz monitor is better? Sure, if you like screen tearing or judder.
My thoughts were its better to have a faster frame rate, to have the headroom to lock and v sync to the optimal hz.. probably my bad.
70hz IS actually better if you are using technologies such as G-Sync, Lightboost, Turbo240, ULMB, etc And 80hz is better than 70hz And 90hz is better than 80hz All the way up to 144hz and they are all better than 30hz.
Jesus... Was there any doubt?
60 Fps is so much better, all these games looks so good but also run at 60 FPS, I think 30 FPS it's just an excuse for lazy developers tbh
