Bungie Explains Why Destiny Will Run At 30FPS And Not 60FPS

Interesting Posts

By -

Destiny is one of many highly anticipated games coming out this year. We just got done with the Destiny First Look Alpha and the game is definitely on the fans’ Must-Buy list for the year. Destiny is an open-world first person shooter from the makers of the highly popular Halo series. We recently heard some interesting news regarding the greatly awaited futuristic first person shooter. Sony announced that the game would be an exclusive for the PS3 and the PS4 in Japan.

We recently reported that Destiny will run at a resolution of 1080p and 30fps on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This raised some eyebrows as PlayStation 4 fans were expecting to play the game at 60fps rather then the 30fps.

In an interview with VentureBeat, Bungie’s Senior Environment Artist talked on the topic and said, “It’s a lot of different things. I could get really technical, but I’d bore you to death. A lot has to do with performance. We’re cross-platform, so we had to be very delicate with all four consoles, making sure they have the same experience, that it looks as good as it possibly can on all these consoles. A lot goes into that, from geometry to textures to post effects to particles to how many players you get on the screen. We’re always balancing that out to make sure everyone gets the same experience,”

It seems that many developers are choosing resolution over fps as that allows developers to add more effects later on. This is the norm nowadays when it comes to next gen gaming.

Destiny will be available for purchase on the 20th of September and it will be available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    Or “We’re not on PC and Sony fanboys eat up anything that’s marketed by Sony like Watch_Dogs Downgraded Edition”.

      Get mental help. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them.

      My PC is better than yours and I know more about technology than you. You are worthless demented human waste. Keep squirting that angry futile mustard everywhere. You aren’t changing anything.

      Apparently PS4′s stronger hardware, ~3.7 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support have microsoft fanboys extremely upset, causing them to spread lies, ignorance, and hatred. Thankfully everyone is ignoring these deranged children and buying PS4s like hotcakes anyway.

      8.2+ million PS4s and counting. Nothing you say will stop it, you are helpless. Keep lying and hating while everyone else ignores you.

      Get mental help. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. Some severely mentally ill people are upset at PS4′s success and have to spread hate and lies, apparently.

      That’s a lot of lies and hatred over PS4′s stronger console hardware, ~3.7 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support. 8.2+ million and counting. Nothing you say will stop it, you are helpless. Keep lying and hating while everyone else ignores you.

      Mustard peasant spreading lies and hatred. You must have issues to literally hate a piece of plastic and people who like gaming on consoles.

      The real “god gaming race” owns both a good PC and consoles, and they find your lies, hatred, and ignorance disgraceful. Keep crying and squirting that mustard everywhere.

      Mustards don’t have “a point”, they just hate anyone who doesn’t have the time, money, or interest in building and maintaining a PC, and hate the fact that consoles offer a comparable gaming experience and exclusive games they can’t have. Unless they grow up and buy a console themselves, which isn’t that expensive compared to their imaginary quad SLI 4k PCs.

      The most hateful, demented mustards have laughable mid-range PCs with GTX 650 Tis that can’t even run the latest games at 1080p 60 fps very high/ultra settings. They’re mostly poor peasants who pirate all their games and hate anything they can’t download off a torrent.

      All these delusional mustards thinking affordable 4k is coming next year, $150 mid range cards can do 1440p 60 fps in a few years, and mobiles will be as powerful as a 1.84 TF console in a few years. Good lord.

      Not everyone wants to game on PCs, if they wanted a gaming PC they would have bought one.

      PS4 has some interesting architecture benefits over traditional split CPU/GPU split memory pool PCs, and other GPGPU customizations. PS4 is comparable to a mid range PC at 1.84TF considering the APU and GPGPU architecture benefits and low level single platform coding. For $400 you get a lot of price/performance, more than a $400 PC would get you. PS4 is better than most PCs. PS4 will have lots of good exclusives, both console only and PS4 only. Wait for later 1st parties to show what PS4 can do.

      Xbox/PC fanboys seem to be on a war on people too poor or unwilling/unable to spend time and money buying, building, and maintaining a PC. Mustard race claiming they can afford multi-thousand dollar PCs but too poor to buy a $200-400 console.

      Both PS4 and Xbox will have good exclusive games, high end PCs are best for multiplatform games if you have the time, money, and effort to build and maintain one. Only deranged fanboys keep chewing their own legs off screaming about “PS4 peasants”.

      Oh boy, an article full of mustard racers chewing their own legs off screaming about peasants and bad PC ports. Not sure how they can hate other people who don’t have the time, money, and/or interest in building and maintaining a gaming PC.

      High end PCs will always be a tiny market, most PC gaming is done on low end PCs playing League of Legends, WoW, or other F2P or MMOs. Console game sales sustain the AAA industry, they’ll get the majority of developer focus most of the time in multiplatform games. Just because someone builds a $1000+ PC doesn’t mean anyone is obligated to make games for them.

      You sound upset that developers aren’t catering to the tiny number of high end PC users that actually pay for their games.

      PS4 is raising the bar, it’s stronger than most PCs. You’re not getting a console that costs $400 and performs like an $1000 PC.

      High end PCs will always be a tiny market, most PC gaming is done on low end PCs playing League of Legends, WoW, or other F2P or MMOs. Just because someone builds a $1000+ PC doesn’t mean anyone is obligated to make games for them.

      Targeting the widest range of consumers is called “business”, not “holding back innovation”. You’re making irrational demands for businesses to target the tiny number of high end PCs instead of the relatively gigantic number of mobiles, low end PCs/laptops, and consoles.

      8.2+ million PS4s and counting. Nothing you say will stop it, you are helpless. Keep lying and hating while everyone else ignores you.

      PS4 has great price/performance value for $400. They aren’t going to sell $900 consoles for $600 anymore like the PS3. That’s business suicide.

      Businesses exist to make money, that’s why PS4 has the specs and price it does. Your expectations for a $400 box are what’s ridiculous. Wait for Naughty Dog to show what PS4 is really capable of.

      I assume you pirate everything including Windows. PC master parasite more like it. Console game sales sustain the AAA industry. If it were all PC most games would be free to play or always online MMO type games that can’t be pirated, i.e. League of Legends, World of Warcraft, etc.
