I feel like we're just a generation off from 60fps as a standard.

We will never get 60 fps as standard. 1st for many game types it’s not necessary and 2nd most developers will rather add more visual fidelity instead of doubling the frame rate. Has always been like that in the last few generations and won’t change anytime soon. The only thing that could contribute to changing this development is VR and the need to reach higher frame rates with it.

You try to ruin my hopes and dreams and then contradict yourself!?

Not today, future monster! No pessimism from you!

You can keep your thoughts in your pocket!

LOL ?!

The thing is third person games, which mostly are totally fine with 30 FPS, are less likely to get VR versions. I’m not pessimistic, just realistic from experience.

But it’s no problem. Just stick to VR from now on.

Both of these games run in 60fps on PS4 Pro

I was thinking about getting a pro but seeing like only some games get 60 fps options instead of all. I still need to adjust between all those games so I dropped this idea altogether. and I won't buy a new tv in the next 5 years. paying extra only for downsampling on a 1080p isn't worth it for me, I barely notice anything on my computr going 1440p or 4k @ 1080p.

All games run better on the Pro thanks to the boost mode



Well, I'm a person that plays fighting games. 60 FPS locked is a requirement, because it's built into the game mechanics. However, I don't think the 30 fps bothers me. If I really need a higher frame rate, I play the game on PC.

As far as exclusives go, the framerate is usually sacrificed for better graphical details. The only time I ever get annoyed by frame rates is when games are lagging on PC, not console. I have a GTX 1080 Ti FTW3, there is no excuse for any game to go below 60fps.

With graphics and features being added to games, 30 fps is here to stay on consoles. It's up to the developer to decided how to use the consoles power. This isn't like the 90s where most games were 60fps, apart from a few games that tried to push above and beyond.

the more I play infamous and think about other titles, the more I think it's not the 30 fps that bothers me. I remember world of warcraft raids with 15 fps which were fine to me. or evil within 2 where I needed to turn of film grain, motion blur because I was getting a headache. in quantum break I needed to turn off many options because it was extremly blurry. in infamous in the basement of this angel / demon guy, I think the game ran there for far more fps and it still felt wrong!

Most console games, mainly single player will always prioritize graphics and resolution over frame rates. it will never change.
