Rumor: PS4 Version of Final Fantasy XIV Being Adjusted Towards 60 FPS at 1080p

In a recent interview, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Director Naoki Yoshida mentioned that the PS4 version of Final Fantasy XIV: a Realm Reborn would run at 30 frames per second in order to display as many characters as possible, but things may be changing.

Today the PS4 version of the game is playable in Osaka for an event that will culminate in the latest Letter from the Producer Live broadcast, and attendees are reporting a switch towards 60 FPS.

If they do, that would be some kind of achievement. Even this kind of open-worlded MMO running smoothly at 30fps seems unreal for me lol, so imagine 60fps. It would definitely showcase how powerful the PS4 is, and how devoted developers are to pushing boundaries and making the best out of it.

The PS4 flexing it's muscles.

It'd be quite sad if the console couldn't manage it on a 2010 game.

The Real Reborn (which is a complete rebuilt version of the original FF XIV) came out last year..

This is from the article which you obviously didn't read

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is a MMORPG that can often display a considerable number of characters on screen. In this kind of game the load on the GPU is extremely variable and even a very beefy gaming PC struggles to hold 60 FPS in very crowded areas.

yeah it will be awesome to play at 60fps it really hard to achieve that with a high demanding game like an mmo and to think about it it,s the best graphically mmo to date(opinion) if it reached the 60fps/1080p then the ps4 is one hell of a beast to do so but still it really hard to do so i really hoping the achieve it that will be pure awesome

@Irish my GTX770 struggles with 60FPS especially on Odin and BEhemoth pops when there can be 200+players at a bare minimum. imagine if a whole server was there even a GTX titan or AMD R9 would struggle.

Can't help yourself can you Irish?

The game came out in 2013. But at least for your console they are targeting 420p @ 30fps.

thorstein1823d ago

Why wouldn't they be able to? Almost every game that is coming out has these specs. Why would this be different? It's not like there going to gimp it to coincide with XOne

FamilyGuy1823d ago

This is a weird thing to read, I missed the 30fps announcement and had last read it was going to be 1080p 60fps. Didn't know they gone back on that but it's nice to see it might be 60fps after all.
I doubt it could hold 60fps in those extreme cases (200+ people fighting a huge boss type plus minions) regardless but setting that as a goal is much appreciated.

SirBradders- If a GTX 770 struggles, then there is no way in hell the PS4 will run 1080p/60 with the same level of detail. That GTX 770 is the same as my GTX 680, which has 2x the PS4's flops, 3x PS4's texture fill rate, 2x pixel fill rate, and ~50gb/s more memory bandwidth than PS4, and it doesn't have to be shared.

If the game is as hard on a 770 as you claim, and PS4 is running 1080p/60, then its only because they really dumbed the detail/textures/shadows/lighti ng/etc down.

Ive i7 4770k and asus gtx 780 and I cannot maintain 60fps when moving in most crowded areas (on maximum settings), so yeah.

Studio-YaMi1823d ago

That would just be "gravy"!

sashimi1823d ago

I love gravy :) so that would be awesome!

adorie1823d ago

Chicken gravy with crushed peppercorns!
Ps4. Gravy Awaits.

Man all this good news about he ps4 is like music to my ears and a nightmare for the fanboys. Keep the high res games coming.

PS4 really is the cream of the crop for console gaming this gen. It seems the devs really are going out their way to push the consoles power. This could be a huge problem for Xbox One because over time the differences will become more noticeable and the gap in power will be more pronounced. Right now people aren't really seeing it because of rushed launch games. For example just look at AC4 for PS4, they clearly could have done much better. You can barely tell it apart from the PS3 version. But the next wave of games is looking a lot more promising.

XiSasukeUchiha1823d ago

That too true right there should of put more power into GPU instead of Kinect because now the difference will show over time. Which makes a harder to buy Xbone and justified!
