John Carmack guarantees Xbox 720, PS4 will target 30 fps

Posted by: Matt Liebl

Legendary game developer John Carmack has said that games on next-gen consoles, presumably the Xbox 720 andPlayStation 4, will target 30 frames per second. Carmack is the co-founder of id Software and has worked on many classic games including Doom, Quake, and Rage. Basically, he's kind of a big deal. And if he says next-gen games are targeting 30 fps, I tend to believe him.

"Unfortunately, I can pretty much guarantee that a lot of next gen games will still target 30 fps," Carmack told a follower on Twitter when asked his thoughts on using 30FPS in next-gen titles.

If true, this is obviously a disappointment to many gamers who were hoping next-gen consoles would finally catch up to PC games in terms of the amazing graphics quality that only high-end PC games are able to achieve with optimal settings.

Sony and Microsoft are already flirting with a fine line with their next-gen consoles. Rumors about the Xbox 720 and PS4 have been circulating for quite a while now with speculation ranging from processing power to anti-used game technology. Until we hear something official, like a reveal announcement, from Sony or Microsoft everything remains speculation.

Still, the thought of 30 fps has to worry gamers who are already fed up with low frame rates on consoles vs PC. Would you still get a next-gen console if it ran at 30 fps?

Make singleplayer 30FPS and full details and multiplayer 60FPS with less details.

Geez it's not that hard.

It's really a no shit Sherlock at this point though, most end users won't be able to tell a difference if the devs are good at keeping a game at 30FPS locked, 60FPS would be nice though, but I've come to realize that it's an impossible dream unless they 1.) are Nintendo first party games, 2.) Looks like shitz, and 3.) are Running on a PC.



As Usual. Personally my PC doesn't run most games at 60 FPS anymore.

John is a real tech wiz and I think he's on to something.

 We probably won't see again such a great leap in graphics as we did with the PS360. Especially Sony knows better than to make yet another overly expensive machine.

 But then again the PS3's price was not just the Cell and the XDR ram. You also paid for PS2 compatibility, super audio CD, 4 usb ports, linux, etc... all that useless crap that did not translate into frames.



I don't really find a problem with playing a game at 30 fps. I play Battlefield 3 and it runs fantastic on PS3. Can barely tell the difference between Call of Duty 60 fps and Battlefield 3 30 fps.

Nintendo and PC gamer

I think this statement comes as an even bigger disappointment to all those people yapping about how the WiiU is not next gen, since they usually confuse raw power which is the PC's domain with consoles which are about many other capabilities as well.

I think the general console dev mindset is to never sacrifice graphics for framerate, depending upon the genre of course. I don't see why next gen would be an exception.
