Final Fantasy 15 Demo Won’t Even Run At 30fps On PS4 And Xbox One

A demo that isn’t at 30fps is foreboding.

Earlier today we showed you a video that feature a solid 40 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming Final Fantasy 15 demo, Episode Duscae as well as touring the entire gameplay map. The video also contained a portion of gameplay that showcased the world viewed at night time.

What you may have noticed about the video, which was from the recent Active Time Report Page 4.0 broadcast, is that its somewhat choppy in places and seems to jitter and jumper a bit. Well the game’s director, Hajime Tabata, has since mentioned that the demo build of the game won’t reach 1080p and won’t even be running at 30 frames per second.

While a 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second is still the teams goal, it seems a bit reckless to release a demo build of your game when even that can’t reach your target. This will surely colour people’s opinion of the game, drag down the amount of pre-orders for it, and it will certainly be used in arguments against the game’s long development cycle. Perhaps this demo wasn’t such a good idea after all.

    As far as I’m concerned, they wasted time from September until now, working on a stupid demo. That’s like approximately 5 months where the whole team should have been developing the full game exclusively. Instead, a lot of resources went on making the demo and even it was rushed. So the game will take even longer to finish now. SquareEnix…don’t you dare release this game in 2 years from now, if you do you’ll have no customers left. Spring 2016 is all that FF fans will tolerate…barely. That’s my best guess!

  • Doesn’t matter.

    The recent iterations of the series have been decidedly lackluster. I’m not too jazzed about trying another one.

    Whoa whoa. Easy. The target specs will improve people. If the game looks to be anything amazing, people will still hold confidence in Square that FF15’ll run fine at launch. Demo schmemo. A bit too much doom n gloom imo

    PS4 footage was 720P at a stuttering 30FPS. They really should not have bothered but I guess Square really wants to sell FFT-0 on the consoles.
