Project Cars Has “High” Chance To Run at 60 FPS On The PS4; Devs Still Aiming For 60 FPS On PS4/XBO

Slightly Mad Studio’s Project Cars is on track for a 2014 release but as the release date draws near, people are questioning whether it will still run at 60 fps or not. According to Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios, they are still aiming for 60 fps on the PS4 and Xbox One.

Project Cars is the upcoming Racing Simulator from Slightly Mad Studios. The unique thing about this game is that it was mostly funded by the public and started off as an indie project. It gained a lot of popularity due to its photo-realistic graphics on the PC.

Recently Project Cars was unveiled for the first time on the PS4 and it looked great, almost as good as it looks on the PC. This came as a surprise, especially since it was confirmed that the game is running at close to 60 fps on the PS4.

Ian Bell took it to himself to confirm their frame rate target for both the PS4 and Xbox One. Speaking about the frame rate, he said: “We’re still aiming for 60 FPS on those consoles.” Here the consoles refer to PS4 and Xbox One, not Wii U.

When questioned whether 60 fps is possible at all on the PS4/XBO, he replied: “We’re already there on PS4, so high : )”

Since Project Cars official site already lists 1080p and 60 fps as the target for PS4, it is definitely possible that the game might run on that resolution and fps on the PS4, even though the 60 fps comment from Ian Bell didn’t talk about the resolution.

He has also showed commitment for the game on PS4 and confirmed that they will support all PS4 wheels, whether it means patching the game after release or getting the support in there day 1.

Seems like the PS4 build is coming off well against the PC build, as the recently released trailer was actually composed of footage from both PC and PS4, confirmed by Ian Bell.

PS4 and PC in that trailer as far as I know.

PC was a single stock GTX 680.

Project Cars is set to release this Fall on the PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, SteamOS and PC. Yes, it is releasing on such a wide variety of platforms so the developers definitely deserve praise if they manage to port it to all these, and they end up being decent ports.

Are you excited for Project Cars? Let us know in the comments below.

    What do you mean almost as good? The Ps4 version looks identical to the PC version. SMS themselves said they’ve sacrificed nothing graphically in porting it over to PS4. They only need to optimize it some more to get locked 60 FPS

    Clearly you’re just an ignorant fanboy if you just automatically assume PC looks better without even looking at the screenshots or listening to the devlopers themselves

    • Mewle

      Actually PS4 is equivalent to PC on medium settings quality wise

      • Mewle

        Still good for a locked in spec machine.

  • Lord Akki

    All the good stuff for my PS4. Looks like my faith in SONY turning this gen around to greatness after the arguably poor last gen performance has themselves redeemed! Project Cars + Driveclub = ohh man dat goodness! 🙂

  • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

    If this ends up 1080 and 60 on PS4 and not on xbone the xbots are going to blow a gasket.

    • Hugo Stiglitz

      No they’re used to it by now. As they should be.

      They’re still going with the “unless you have a 80 inch TV you can’t tell anyways” lol

  • Dikan45

    Seeing as Codemasters have gone to pot this looks like the closest I’ll get to a new Toca game!

  • datdude

    Is it me or do developers completely ignore the xbone? It’s ps4 this and ps4 that, and dat bone can’t get any play. Poor bone.

      Well its Sony’s turn in the spotlight. Last gen everyone was in love with the 360 also MS really screwed up their system with a small eSRAM that really kills theability of getting 1080p and 60FPS without major work on the game which is why people love the PS4

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        Even with any amount of work, the Xbone just isn’t capable of what the PS4 is capable of. Even if you get the eSRAM working perfectly, the PS4 is still 50% stronger so naturally, PS4 is gonna have 50% better resolution or framerate, or both.

        • Shunsuke

          True but I hate leaning one way or the next. I know that Sony really put a lot of great things in the PS4 to make it a heavy favorite for devs and really anyone that looks and contrasts the two consoles side by side.

          Really I think the better resolution comes from the fact Sony went with GDDR5 RAM which is the ram in graphics card while MS went with DDR3 RAM which is good for everyday operation but can’t keep up with GDDR5’s performance.

    • ps4lol

      Why would developers show the graphically inferior version of a multiplat game unless it was a marketing deal?

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        like CoD ? LOL

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Its not you, developers are ignoring that piece of garbage.

    • Trim Dose

      the xbone has a mediocre hardware thanks to the morons of MS design ideas that were aiming for TV, TV, TV, Sports, sports, sports, even more retarded the claudzzzz. So Why developers focus in such miserable console ?, believe it or not and don’t get me wrong I wanted the new xbox to be a huge leap from the 360, but the greediness of MS alienate the 360 successor. Spppoorrttts

    If they reach 60 fps on ps4 and graphics are really that great, I think we’ll have a winner, here.
    I just hope they don’t use micro transactions or any other methods to steal us money.
    They could make and release new content, new tracks, new cars, for free, after launch, and that would be like a slap in the big AAA publisher’s face, who tend to give us less and less, while charging more and more, cutting down content, etc.

    And for those sad frustrated Xbots that keep calling the ps4 ‘indiestation’, just look at this indie studio: they are releasing a monster that will rival, or even largely exceed a gran turismo, need for speed or forza5 game. You guys think that indie means a 1-2 guys teams. No. A studio may have 400 people working on a game and still be considered ‘indie’, just because they’re independent and don’t belong to a big AAA company, whose shareholders dictate everything.

      Grand turismo has over a thousand cars and over a hundred tracks. You must be slightly retarded if you think this game is even close to GT.

      • Agent_Blade

        He means that it could give GT and even Forza a run for their money. This could be a stepping stone, a example of how Sim racers need to be. Maybe after this game comes out…maybe that will get Polyphony to quit making crap GT games with old graphics, no poor damage physics, same cars but in variations saying that is has over 1,000 cars,.

        And Forza I’m hoping this game will teach Turn 10 how to make great weather effects, better damage physics and more cars and tracks, better lighting and less jaggie looking enviorments.

      • Sch@dows

        How many “premium” with full cockpit in GT ? How many double (or more) of the same car in GT ?
        And about the tracks, pcars is around the same as GT (37 environnement in GT and 34 “only” in pCars planned for the base game but I admit they have less layout variation).
        Other than that, there is extensive damage, full variety of weather and day-night cycle on all tracks, a real career mode (not a boring “grind for money” offline), etc …
        I do think pcars is having a chance in there (but the result will be decided when the game will be out)

        • Hugo Stiglitz

          Over 400 and 37 tracks

          • Sch@dows

            Wow, huge improvement over GT5 with it’s 250 premium which included severals cars in (not so) different version and several “city” cars (neither sports nor race cars).

  • NoNeedToArgue

    That trailer was PC and PS4? :-O

    • Dave

      PS4 version’s graphics look fantastic, given how well the PS4 is selling, this game will really sell well on PS4.

      • NoNeedToArgue

        no doubt. between this driveclub and GT7 the PS4 will be racer heaven.
