I think consumers prefer 60 fps even if they don't really understand it.

Well that's the thing. It's easier to market impressive looking visuals than smooth framerate. 
Whether it's screenshots, posters or trailers. They go for what's more immediately eye catching. Which probably plays a big role in why so many developers tend to prioritize visuals, no matter how much power they get in a system. I don't expect things to change much in this regard with Scarlett and PS5.

But there are games that offer both impressive visuals and smooth frame rate. Especially on the X1X because it more often achieves 60 fps with 1440p-4K. Gears 5 for example has great visuals, 60 fps, and the resolution is high (1584p to 4K).

I think its worth considering any games that can function at 1440p-4K/30 fps on 9th gen hardware, should also be able to function at a lower resolution with 60 fps. Hopefully developers will let us choose in those scenarios.

I'm curious to see if there will be 9th gen games that are so visually cutting edge they only run at 1080p/30 fps. I don't think those experiences will have 60 fps options.
