“Unfortunately, I can pretty much guarantee that a lot of next gen games will still target 30 fps,” said Carmack.
Targeting a typical frame rate of 30 frames per second could also mean many displays of future console games will also come in at a resolution of 720p.
How do you guys feel? Is 30 FPS/720p good enough?
I'm bummed that the goal isn't 60 FPS and true 1080p but at the same time, if next-gen games can achieve a consistent 30 FPS with enhanced shader and rendering techniques over current console games, then the future will still look pretty good. My biggest fear for the next console cycle is that the hardware won't be there to support a constant 30 FPS. If not, I feel like new consoles will be doomed from the get-go.
