Fallout 4: Pete Hines Defends His “Solid 30 FPS” Comment , Talks About Frame Rate On PS4 And Xbox One

Bethesda’s VP of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines recently had to face some backlash over his earlier comments stating that Fallout 4 will run at solid 30 fps on the PS4 and Xbox One. As it turns out, the game actually has a fair share of frame rate drops on the PS4 and Xbox One, going as low as 20 fps on the PS4 and 0 fps (we aren’t joking here) on the Xbox One.

The game was officially released today and since it has been played by majority of the users, it is obvious that the game has frame rate drops, especially on the Xbox One. This doesn’t explain the comment that Pete Hines had made earlier stating that he plays it all the time, and it runs at “Solid 30 FPS”.

Pete Hines was quick to stress that the early reports about the game’s frame rate on PS4 were regurgitated from one source and the game actually runs well on the PS4. He said that he never personally encountered frame rate drops on PS4.

Another user showed Hines a video with frame rate drops on the PS4 after he stated he never personally experienced these issues on PS4.

He was also asked about adding names that Codsworth can say in the game and he confirmed that they don’t have any plans to include more.


Fallout 4 is now available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
