Eurogamer confirms: Mario Kart 8 is 1080p/60FPS (even in 2-player)

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Eurogamer confirms: Mario Kart 8 is 1080p/60FPS (even in 2-player)

Damn... This is good news.

Normally I wouldn't believe this and assume they meant '1080p upscaled' but Eurogamer are a little more reliable.



It looks good artistically...but...not...technically :).... is what most Sony fanboys would say. I think this is a way better achievement than Driveclub 1080p/30fps. All racers are supposed to be 60fps and this game still looks gorgeous.

I don't think its native 1080, eurogamer did not do their digital foundry (or) anything in the article they just mentioned 1080p 60FPS in regular way for their demo instead of stressing its running natively in their analysis. So far its been confirmed 720p/60FPS and even nintendo did not confirm properly (they would have said if its 1080p because this will give them huge bonus in marketing).



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

1080p will not give a big plus for a marketing amongst normal people. And the technogeeks will say that modnationracer is still better and go continue playing their CODs.

Good to aim for 60fps even for two players. 60fps is important to increase the feel of the gameplay even in fun racers and even if most on VGC may think that 30fps would be better to increase the look of the game.



Oh yeah! That's awesome!



So it's the second next-gen racing game achieving 1080p60, impressive!



I don't see the confirmation?

We'll need to wait for DF for that.

Eh...I doubt many "technogeeks" play CoD...certainly not for the tech at least.
