Dev On 30 vs 60 fps: ‘Who Cares What Arbitrary Number Is Attached To What Random Specification?’

It is the gameplay that matters according to David Edery, CEO of Spry Fox.

The latest generation of consoles and developers alike have come under some flak for not delivering sixty frames per second consistently across all of their games. The general consensus is that PS4 and Xbox One games should render games at 1080p and 60fps since gaming PCs have been able to do that for years now. In short, certain players are frustrated since there is an obvious difference between 30 and 60 frames per second.

Speaking to David Edery, who is the CEO of Spry Fox, GamingBolt asked about his perspective on the current debate. According to him it’s the gameplay that matters. “Is the game fun? Does it look great? These are the questions that matter. Who cares what arbitrary number is attached to what random specification?,” he said to GamingBolt.

We also asked David whether their own game Road Not Taken will run at 1080p and 60fps on the PS4? And he confirmed that it will be running at 30fps. ” [It will be running at ]1080p, 30fps. For a game of this sort, there is no perceivable difference between 30 and 60 fps,” he said.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with David’s comment? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. We will have more coverage for Road Not Taken in the coming days. Stay tuned.

    Right on David, preach it to the paupRs.

    This whole mess was started by Sony. They kept pushing 1080p 60fps in all their ads and commercial and they brought us to this ugly mess. They make naughty dog spew about it and act like anything else is bad.

    • Not_true

      Show one PS4 ad that talks about 1080p 60 fps. You’re making things up.

      Nobody is forcing Naughty Dog employees to tweet about how they appreciate 60 fps.

    • d0x360

      Does Sony pay you? Jesus Christ kid.

    • Not_true

      Are you upset that someone is calling out obvious BS and lies?

    • d0x360

      Nope. Didn’t lie about anything.

    • Guest

      Yes derpburp most certainly lied, Sony is not responsible for this, the fanboys are, of both sides. Before this gen even started both sides were claiming 1080p60fps as the most important thing. Then when it became obvious that the X1 struggled to even do 1080p non the less 60fps, suddenly all you phonies switched to gameplay is what matters (oh and framerates. So if anybody is to blame for pushing the 60fps mattering its the MS fanboys). So stop with your selective memory. And you’re the one that sounds angry at him for no reason at all other then him saying the truth, which you obviously dont like. Now stop with all the personal attacks.

    • d0x360

      All though I am quite frankly disturbed by you and your mindset. You are an angry person. very mean very vindictive. You should see someone about it.

      If I insulted you it must have been because you insulted me first. If it makes you feel better I apologize for doing so but I wouldn’t have done it unless I was significantly provoked.

      Take care.

    • Not_true

      Wrong, I did not.

    • d0x360

      Alright. That’s your opinion. Next time don’t insult people and they won’t insult you back.

      I’m ashamed of myself for letting you rope me into such an inane argument.

    • Guest

      Honestly, you should really be ashamed of yourself for being such a idiot period. I know i am (ashamed of your stupidity, sorry).

    • Guest

      Its good that you apologized, but he didnt attack you, you attacked him. All you have to do is reread the comments and you’ll see.

    • Guest

      And more personal attacks, keep it personal, but he’s mad, right? Delusional fanboy backward logic.

    • Guest

      does MS pay you? What he said is true. And he has to obviously work overtime to keep all the lies, hate and deceit you fanboys spew in check. Why did what he say upset you?

    • Starman
    • Guest

      Again, not a ad and notice how its says “Naughty Dog”, not Sony. So once again, this proves nothing. And you do know that MS is now actively pusing 1080p on all games on their system since resolutiongate right? So if anybody is pushing it, its MS.

    • Not_true

      A Naughty Dog employee saying “our games are targeting 1080p 60 fps”. Does that mean “Sony is making naughty dog spew about it”? Not really. It’s their opinion on twitter.

    • Mark

      Lol

      So according to you, Sony pushing devs to take advantage of their hardwares superiority is a bad thing, but i bet if you found out MS was doing the same thing (which they are btw) you’d think that was great news. So stop being a typical hypocritical fanboy? And he said, show him one ad”, Thats not a ad kid, so get that right. And one dev claiming that in May of 2013 is not proof of anything. So please come back with some thing better than that.

    • Not_true

      Most indie games are 1080p 60 fps, Just Add Water is an indie dev.

      As we’ve seen Sony isn’t stopping any dev from setting the resolution of PS4 games to 900p or 30 fps.

    • ilovegoogleglass

      I still remember the days when nobody cared.

    • Guest

      Aah, the bad old days of ignorance. Wasnt it great?

  • d0x360

    I could care less if its 30 or 60 ad long as its stable and has vysnc I’m happy. Screen tear is the absolute worst offense a game can make.

    • Guest

      This is can agree with. Its gotta be rock solid and no frame pacing issues either. 30fps with motion blur is actually preferable to me.

  • wolfgang187

    there’s a pretty big difference between 30 and 60 fps. dunno how anyone could even question it

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I think he means more for the graphical style they chose for Road Not Taken.

    • Guest

      A rock solid 30fps with motion blur is “a ok” in my book, people obsess too much over 60fps

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Yeah I wish game play was the bigger focus so that way instead of trying to divide the audience on graphics, the actual focus is the immersion.

  • Kamille

    if devs a going to continue making their games at 30 frames then I at least expect it to be locked, which is never the case. All these supposed “30 frames locked” games always take a dive to the low 15’s.

    • Guest

      While its true that they are not all locked, its not true that they all dip to “the low 15’s).

  • Jason Mounce

    It’s sorta like The Last of Us Remastered. It offers 30FPS Lock option but can do 60FPS. Some people infact come out to prefer the 30FPS – others prefer 60FPS.

    This CHOICE. This….Option. Should be a feature varying on how visually-demanding a game is.

  • Matt

    Aw… look at the obscure dev try to talk down about 60fps as if the experience isn’t any better than 30fps.

    Wutsa madder wittle devy… Don’t have a AAA budget?

  • Mark

    The best way to gather an unbiased opinion on a game is to 1) look at it and 2) play it. Lol. At the pace this “war” is moving, I’d rather not even know the numbers. I just wanna be blown away by an amazing game!
