DmC is not going to run at 60 frames per second and Capcom is doing everything in their power to downplay that fact.
Capcom are digging deep into the bottom of the barrel for this one. They’re claiming:
action games that run at 60 frames per second can have a tiring effect on players’ eyes after a long time because the frames themselves “almost shake or flash”. Because of this, “adjusting the speed is almost necessary”.
Let’s ignore the fact that some of the top selling first person shooters employ 60 FPS and focus on Capcom’s own line up including Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3. Are they trying to claim that 30 FPS could work with those? If they are saying that this tiring effect only affects action games like Devil May Cry, what about all those 60 FPS instalments that they released earlier?
I just hope, for their sake, that DmC turns out to be a good game regardless of framerate. I also hope they don’t do any more interviews because the more they talk about this framerate issue, the more ridiculous their answers seem to be.
