It was recently confirmed by CVG that Unreal Tournament 3 on the PS3 will run at 60 frames per second.
Good, I will actually pick up the PS3 version of this game.
the difference has started to show up.
PS3 is showing its mettle and choking the low powered x360
UT3, which is looking to be the best looking game visually yet on any system, also supports bots with varing levels of AI, and online play, will be running at 60 FPS, EA has no excuss. Kudos for Epic, poo on EA.
They try to sell to a mass market by making multi plat games. Look at what they are doing with fifa, because PS3 is doing better then xbox 360 in japan and europe, they are paying more attention to the development for the ps3 version, rather than the xbox 360 version. I agree, I don't like them as a business, but they have always done this forever. Look at what they are doing to wii games.
I just don't like their standards.
"UT3, which is looking to be the best looking game visually yet on any system"
Low poly overly normalmapped bald space marines in shiny armor! Oh god...
UE3 is a pathetic joke of an engine.
Killzone 2 is an entire generation ahead of this latest crappy effort from the crappy x86 pc devs at Epic.
But the fact is still, that EA most likely don't KNOW how to develop great games for the PS3, and because of that, we're most likely gonna end up with an x360 game that plays just as good as the PS3 version anyways. At least with this years games.
This game is going to be huge, and so much fun.
60 fps and mouse and keys? Community created maps and mods? Forget about it! This is awesome!
PC quality for console price.
If it's that simple then this will be a great deal.
The game will be 30 FPS locked. Confirmed by Mark Rein. Yes it's really him and the game will still be great.
"I'm saying the demo they saw could have been 60 fps. We have not locked frame rate yet so right now it depends on things like what level they were running and how many bots they put in, what mutators they were running, etc. When we get it finished and locked down it should run at 30 fps all the time"
MARK REIGN confirmed that ps3 version would be 720p but it might run at 60/30fps depending on the miminum spec they wanted the game to be set for the PC version
UT3 will run at 60FPS at 720p
1st post seems a wee bit trollish
This is the same Mark Rein that didn't know Keyboard and Mouse had been implemented. Your retarded attempt to damn the game so you can attack the PS3 fails.
aww, 180 cant get up to a third of its number, aww 2 bad
60, or 30 fps, it will still be awesome for everybody, and i cant wait to get this for my ps3, see you online bam dead, yea i did that sorry, ahhahaha
This game runing at 60 FPS on the PS3? Sweat! yeah, and am i suppose to belive EA games can't run at 60 FPS on the PS3? S!## you got me F!cked up!
and other times, it will run at 30.
Here is the quote from a forum that he posted in today. The forum link has been posted within the above link for this story:
The frame rate isn't locked - which means it is variable and I already outlined the conditions on which frame rate could vary. For all I know they could have been standing still looking a wall the whole time and running at 120fps. There's no right answer. If they say it was running solidly 60 fps then obviously they thought it was running pretty darn well and that's all that really counts at this point.
I hope that satisfies you for now because I'm going to bed. Good night everyone!
He doesn't actually seem very definitive about his responses in the forum. Initially he did, but then as he was pressed, I began to question the validity of what he was saying. Maybe he hasn't received the newest update from the Dev Team, or who knows. Either framerate is satisfactory to me. If it's a VERY solid 30, then I will be happy.
It is just some user pretending to be him
MARK doesnt blog in EVILAVATAR forums
Holy crap!! And EA can't get a sports game that they make every single year to run at 60fps? What the hell are they doing the whole year?
Can he be more obvious
"That means it will be a 30fps game like Gears of War is"
That leaves no grey area. 30 FPS locked.
Stop trolling, the game was runing at 60FPS that's all that count. I hate this idiots that come in here to troll. You want us to beleave you or the guy standing infront of the game watching it run at 60fps. Easy choice
green isn't your color
I see choices for Agree , Disagree, and Report. Where is the choice for Retarded for this poster?
I think EA is getting pay by M$ or they just don't want to work hard, becasue if epic can get a game running at 60 FPS on the PS3, why EA can't get a sport game running at 60 FPS on the PS3.
EA! if you guys are going to make a crappy game on the PS3 or the PS3 is going to get the worst version of the game, then don't even bother.
He just changed his answer to be a little more lenient the further he was pressed. He even said the Demo might be running at 60 as everyone thought. I think now is too early to tell what it might end up running at. I will wait and see if any developmental changes occur closer to its release.
EA and everyone to me it seems are without excuse.With the level of detail and action going on in this game(not to mention COD4),and still maintain a rock solid 60fps,is very indicative of the untapped potential and power of the PS3.If I'm not mistaken wasn't GeOW 30fps.I'm curious to see if the PS3 will ever get past 60fps to maybe 70-80fps.
An unexpected and very pleasant surprise. UT3 is so visually rich (if not the best looking game, certainly in the top 3) I didn't expect 60fps and would have been happy with a solid, smooth 30fps. I guess staying at 720p helps, which is all that is really needed for a game like this, where as Lair I think 1080p is a good decission with so much detail below you.
60fps, KB&M, full mod support. Unless you've got a Ninja PC you dying to try this on, this is the version to get. I've wanted Bots in Halo since the 1st one. This game is going to have so much customisation, and the game itself is just the beginning. Mods will keep it going forever. Best shooter of the year.
but will still get both versions so I can play against ma son...lol
Wow, those UT3 graphics running at 60 fps on PS3? Now that's something. The game already looks stunning but now runs stunningly smooth. Epic FTW.
And EA can't even make a simple game like Madden run at 60 fps on PS3.
You guys are idiots. He says straight up more than once it will be 30 FPS when the game ships. I love dellusional people who can't read. Get over it. A freaking kid asks this exact question

Who cares what the demo runs at the game will be 30 FPS when shipped no if ands and butts about it.
Seriously? 20-0. I'd probably go 50-0 without breaking a sweat.
Guys! Before we all get the wrong idea, Rein said this:
"That means it will be a 30fps game like Gears of War is."
Read this thread for his response:
According to him the demo was possibly running at 60 fps due to not having a locked framerate. It'd be nice if they decided to keep it at that though if they felt it was ok, but it seems they're aiming for 30 which worked for Gears.
I know others pointed this out but I just want it to be clear.
The good part: Rein: "If they say it was running solidly 60 fps then obviously they thought it was running pretty darn well and that's all that really counts at this point."
So perhaps 60 will stick if they feel it runs well. I certainly hope so.
For the last time, real Mark Rein? Also, the real Mark Rein didn't know Keyboard and Mouse had been implemented for PS3 but now he is suddenly right?
Mark Rein usually always posts under that name, I believe even on Evil Avatar.
And KB/Mouse has been confirmed for a while. Before it was unclear.
That is the point. He didn't know a major game feature had been CONFIRMED for several days. He was told about it in an interview.
Actually... Keyboard/mouse has been known to be featured since at least 2005/06.
Many knew that already.
Hell, it should I paid 600 for it.
Madden LOL 2k Sports is better but they just don't have the rights to the Madden name,EA sucks...
In your face, you lazy B!tch.
helped boost the performance of UE3 on the platform. This is awesome stuff, and I'm definitely picking up this game when it comes out. Cross platform play! =]
You act like no one working for a company has ever said something that wasn't completely accurate. I work for a big company, and we have had disconnects regarding IT project development many times. In addition, how many times have companies released specifications for a game months before its release, only to have them change closer to the game's release? I know what you're saying, but if you didn't notice his change in responses as he was pressed then you're a bit slow. He even changed his answer at the end to say it would be a variable Framerate. I don't personally care what the framerate is because a solid 30 is fine with me; however, I like to look at every possible angle.
I am always listening to interviews with Mark Rein, and he constantly tiptoes on confirming and denying various things. I say, with game development, things can change, and the fact that the demo seems to be running at 60, is enough for speculation.
Unreal Tournament 3 will be one of the best FPS this year the legendary FPS is back and better then ever ofcourse this will be best on PS3.
The thread title is totally wrong and misleading. Secondly the game will be 30 FPS when it's released guaranteed. He wasn't tippy toeing around anything. Your just delusional. The variable frame rate is about the demo. I guess your the one who is more than just a bit slow. It's laughable that you are even trying to debate that he says the game will be a 30 FPS game like Gears. Too funny.
Thread title should be
"Unreal Tournament 3 Demo (PS3) Might have Run at 60FPS"
to set me straight then. Delusional? I was speculating. I never tried to present anything as fact. You have a vendetta against speculation and 60 frames per second. But since you have said it's guaranteed, I concede, but only because it's you.
So they made a 60 FPS demo, but no game? If the demo runs great, why not incorporate into the entire game? Maybe dev time, but I don't see the point, and I don't really care anymore.
people need to remember the PS3 is still a new console..it hasnt reach a year yet - and we have the best looking game rite now coming 2 the PS3 at 60FPS
next year the games will own bigtime - MS is in sooo much trouble - they better start handing out consoles for free because i think every retard in the world already bought a cheap60 so no more tards left
Take that EA! A better game in all aspects running faster than your P.O.S. product.
i guess its easy for ea to make 60 fps on such a weak and fragile machine, but on true next gen its hard
Would it run at 120FPS on the 360?
I'm kidding before any technobuffs try to educate me on FPS and console capabilities.
wasnt there are article already saying they were playing UT3 on a PS3 and it was at 60fps? looking fantastic o course
us ps3 and pc game players dont know anything of consoles do we
Will look better
I bought Madden this year just becausei have played this game for dam near a decade but if next years game is not up to par with all the others i will not buy one more game from them.
and that should be easy cuz Madden is the only game i have bought from them in a long time! Oh and Fifa!
This is 60FPS and looks good. No 360 game that looks good runs at 60FPS. Madden and Forza both look like crap.
Shame on you EA.Lazy nuts.
It won't be 60fps. Mark my words. Gears was 30fps....it would be a miracle if it was 60fps.
for maximum FPS. Otherwise I'll probably go PC.
You'll be playing it at 30fps and I doubt it will be locked.
Ok scratch that. It will be locked 30fps. I know that. UT3 has more frames than Gears of War that's for sure - and it could have been running at a fluctuating 60fps for the demo CVG saw, BUT when the game ships Epic will lock it down to 30fps. Trust me :)
who cares the point is ps3 gets it first and unless microsoft changes its mind on mods then the 360 won,t get it full stop
a quote from mark spoke to ms to busy they said
they take sht on ea, EA:oh we can't do really good at ps3 we only had it for like a year.Epic:Hm 60 or 120,oh yeah when released it's a big holiday for us, first superb ps3 game.Props to ridge racer 7, wow released at launch 1080p and 60 fps.
We can all settle (be happy) for a very solid and smooth 30 frames per second with the unreal 3 engine. If anything changes by release time, I'll just act surprised.
