This is to warn people who may not know this fact, btw, driveclub suffers the same so is not a xbox one vs something topic.

The better informed you are the better choices you make so try to understand the link below. It applies to every console and pc.

There is input lag between the press of the button or movement of the stick to the point where the game reacts to it. This input lag is way bigger, as demostrated in the link, on 30 fps rather than 60 fps. Thats why usually, fighting games which require a ver precise timing or serious racing games that require precise accurate turning at high speeds, etc, use 60 fps.

Some people doesnt mind but if you are looking for a racing game that rewards skill and practice and is serious about racing and has a smooth gameplay, then you should care.

Repost huh. Fh1 as I said runs fine at 30fps. Its stable. Driveclub runs fine at 30fps. FH2 isn't a serious sim, if it was 60fps is more desirable of course but stability is what matters here. You post this on the ps4 board to for driveclub running at 30fps also don't you?

Again, read the article, is not about stability, is about reaction.

But agree about FH2 not being serious is more a happy to go racing game. Is a mix of GTA and a racing game.

Yes, but you are free of post there as well, the link is public domain you know.

It is not a mix of a GTA racing game. It's simply and open world racer. It's a genre that's been around for years. Also I don't understand why you're crying about a game that you are not
even going to get?

Well as I said it is vital in serious racing to have 60fps or at least 40+ and stable does matter some. I don't get why you're posting it though. Forza 5 is sort of SIM and does 60 fps, horizon is more of a playground have fun game.

30 fps is just sad for racing games, which are just tech demos.

Shoots an airball, it was the wind. Sucks at racing games, it was input lag!
