30 vs. 60 FPS: Can Your Eyes Tell The Difference In Gameplay?

Can you tell the difference between 30 vs. 60 fps gameplay? Thanks to this brand new site, we can compare 30 fps gameplay side-by-side with 60 fps gameplay. Do you notice any difference?

30 fps vs. 60 fps has been a hot topic these days. Most of the AAA games usually target 30 fps on consoles so that they can ramp up the graphics and use as much of the rendering budget on the graphics as they can. 60 fps is usually more expensive and to retain smooth 60 frames per second, developers have to compromise on graphical quality.


So what about the difference between a smooth 60 fps game vs. 30 fps one? Thanks to this new site, we can see a comparison between 30 vs 60 fps in various PC games (Sleeping Dogs, Dirt 3, Red Orchestra 2, Battlefield 4)

For the current generation consoles, most of the games so far have been locked at 30 fps. Curiously, the PS4 has the most ‘unlocked’ frame rate games compared to the Xbox One. The recently released inFamous: Second Son, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Killzone: Shadow Fall, were all running with an unlocked frame rate. If rumors are true, the upcoming Watch_Dogs might also run at unlocked frame rate on the PS4
