Codies' F1 unlikely to go 60FPS until next-gen

VideoGamer writes "F1 2011 will run at a steady 30 frames per second, not the 60 fps holy grail, but this is just half the story, F1 2011 chief game designer Stephen Hood has told

"It's almost a determined decision for the whole team. It's not as if one team can go, 'We're going to run at 60FPS, but DiRT is going to run at 30.' That's determined for us," said Hood."

Making sacrifices is something all gamedevelopers have to do.
Who can blame them?

That is a good thing.

GT5-Very high graphic cars, pretty good ai and great lighting but bad surrounding graphics

Forza 3 and Forza 4-Great track graphics but poor graphic cars(except in menu). In Forza 3 the ai acts like you are not even there.

Rage:Very very poor textures but great shaders

MW3:Poor textures but great shaders

I think it is a good thing that they have chosen to not go 60fps this gen because you really dont get as much as you could out of the game this gen in 60fps as you could 30fps.

F1 2010 looks really good @ 60fps on PC max settings but if they did 60fps on consoles it wouldnt look nearly as good.

I think it's all about the money and Who cares if Dirt runs 30fps...Unless, they are trying to tell you something...O_o

Let's face it, in a fast moving game where speed is one of the biggest factors, frames per second is a very big deal. This isn't a TPS where you spend all your time in cover or moving in short spurts from point A to point B.

Of course sacrifices are made and resources are limited but they should of changed something else IF they could or were ALLOWED too.

Excuses? They are masters of code!! It's in the name!

It won't happen!

I can't wait for next gen, then. I'm an avid supporter of 60fps gaming. Everything looks so good in motion. Anybody who says they don't see the difference actually 'feels' it in a pleasing way, but can't tell exactly why.

Meh. What else is new. If they didn't start with 60 frames for the series this gen they were hardly gonna sacrifice visual fidelity to attain it years later. Now.

I play them on PC anyway. 60 frames is fairly easy to achieve with modern hardware max DX11 settings, 8 X MSAA etc etc
