Capcom thinks 60 FPS is tiring for the eyes

posted in: Game News | 0

capcomlogoDmC 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.

Another year, another Captivate event held by Capcom. This year’s event held very few surprises. A new Darkstalkers game wasn’t announced and we certainly didn’t see anything Mega Man related.

Capcom did shed more light on their upcoming Resident Evil and Devil May Cry games with a couple of showy trailers.

Resident Evil 6

The reveal Wesker Jr. and the confirmation of Sherry Birkin were nice little surprises, but for anxious fans, the new release date of October 2, 2012.
