How come the N64 runs games at 30 fps but the current next gen console cant?

#1skermacPosted 1/26/2014 8:54:40 PM
I know the devs have some say so but doesn't any new console have the power to run higher than 30 fps? Whats the deal with all this power? I really want to know.

The N64 came out in 1996, 18 years ago. Do you know how much power we have compared to 18 years ago and still have problems getting over 30fps. Something is not right!

Can the N64 run naturally at 720p?
Can we get a HD version of Quest 64?
The answer to both of those is no.

I remember back when the N64 was out articles were making a big deal about how with the Power Pack some games would be 480p.

No, I seriously want to know why 18 years later we are still stuck with 30 fps and have a system a lot more powerful.

Yes. He made this same post in another topic like 5 min ago

There were plenty of N64 games that struggled to maintain 20 FPS, lol.

The difference was that there wasn't a competing system with those same games that ran them better.
