I thought it's best for the filmic effect and cinematic experience mixed with next-gen QTE , 60fps and higher just ruins that.

He's talking about VR and he is absolutely right: 30fps is not sufficient for VR. It's much much worse than playing a game on a traditional display at 30fps. The doubling of latency alone makes it a no-go.

I have headaches if I play a game locked at 30fps.

I don't get headaches and I can still enjoy a game at 30fps just fine, but 60fps is definitely so much better. 60fps gives you more fluid visuals with better temporal resolution, along with much better controller response.

30fps for driving, fighting and fps shooter is a failure

Most racing games on consoles have been 30 fps historically . It's a few franchises after f zero X that have been 60 fps .

And 30fps can be fine for a SP experience , dépends on the game and what it offers as a trade off .

Other than that , i agree that , it's a must for core fighting games .

I and most of Occuface's kickstarter backers call Palmer Luckey a sell out.

Anyone but FaceFuck would of sufficed.

I hope you cancelled your DK2 preorder. That'll make one less person I have to wait behind to get mine.
