Poll: Which do you prefer, 720p/60fps or 1080p/30fps (73 votes)

720/60fps 52%
1080p/30 fps 42%
5%

Since it seems this is what the Xbox One will be getting this entire generation I'd like to know which you prefer.

First of all, I'd prefer 1080p/30FPS.

And as for your last statement, no, just no.

#2 Posted by PinkieWinkie (1454 posts) -

Depends on the type of game

#3 Posted by bbkkristian (14967 posts) -

720p/60fps ftw. Seriously, FFXIV A Realm Reborn is 720p and it still looks fantastic.

#4 Posted by foxhound_fox (90820 posts) -

My PC outputs at 1366x768 and my TV outputs at 1280x720.

I'll take 60fps no matter what the resolution is.

playable and fun

#6 Edited by M8ingSeezun (2044 posts) -

If it can run 1080p/60fps then so be it, ftw. 1080p/30fps is fine. I'm not that nitpicky.

But I'm perfectly fine with 720p/60fps. My Plasma can only output 720p anyway. So what the fvck anyway.

And I'm only interested in a PS4, :P

#7 Edited by Chozofication (4019 posts) -

Depends on the game. Platformers and action games 60fps is better, 1080p for Rpg's and open world games.

60fps is always great though.

#8 Edited by kitty (115014 posts) -

I'm not really worried about the resolution, just as long as the game looks good and runs smooth. If I want to worry about resolution, I'll do that when I'm using my pc. When it comes to consoles, I focus on the playing the games, and that's all that matters.

60 FPS for console gaming.. I have a hard time telling res on TVs.. I may rather do 1080p on my PC monitor w/c is very close to my face.

Depends on the game too.

#10 Posted by silversix_ (16235 posts) -

this again? an exact thread like that was posted two days ago... anyways there's no point between choosing between two turds, its 1080p/60fps or gtfo.

#11 Posted by Jankarcop (10791 posts) -

lol consoles.

#12 Posted by GamingVengeance (1874 posts) -

1440p @60 fps, thank you pc

#13 Posted by ninjapirate2000 (3255 posts) -

60fps all day. I dont care about the resolution.

#14 Posted by Wasdie (50651 posts) -

60fps or more at whatever my monitor's native resolution is.

Console peasants have to settle for shit.

#15 Posted by StrongBlackVine (9471 posts) -

1080/30fps if I have to choose. I don't want to any game on PS4 running at 720p. 900p is the lowest I'll accept for anything other than a bargain bin purchase.

1080p/60fps will sell. Developers take note on Tomb Raider.

#16 Posted by superbuuman (3240 posts) -

faster framerate more important so 720@ 60fps

#17 Posted by cainetao11 (19565 posts) -

I prefer having a good time playing games. I was digging into PS2 zone of enders at a friends house last night. Not the HD collection, the old games, and I had a great time. Now if I decided that things like that were below some self set standards, I would have missed out on a great time with a friend playing some classic fun. I wont due it to myself. I have a 46" HDTV, and will play games on it regardless of resolution or fps because I like playing games.

#21 Posted by Gaming-Planet (14443 posts) -

2560x1080p.

#22 Posted by blamix99 (2575 posts) -

PS4 of course 1080p and 60fps, Xbox One 720p and 30fps LOL

#23 Edited by Krelian-co (13098 posts) -

2014 and console peasants still have to choose lol. And lems get both 720p and 30 fps, disgusting.

since when does that mean he can't have an opinion, as long as that opinion is within the rules.

#26 Posted by Basinboy (11417 posts) -

Framerate is king

#27 Posted by Opus_Rea-333 (1124 posts) -

I voted 1080p but to be honest 60FPS seems more important for console gaming, the upcaler of Xbox One is great.

#28 Posted by daveg1 (20343 posts) -

a solid 30fps is fine..60 fps to me seems a bit too frantic especialy in a fps so i think it depends on the game

it can go that way aswell. it is a hard poll to answer to be honest. since both 60FPS and 1080p are really nice visual features. Ask PC gamers.

To make it easy, i guess depending of the game. for fast paced shooters, racing games Framerate is king,

single player game like infamous or Fable 1080p 30fps should be the norm..

#30 Posted by Jacobistheman (3975 posts) -

I honestly have no clue if what I am looking at is 30fps or 60fps. The human eye can't really tell the difference in most cases.

If you go to a movie theater and watch a movie it is 24fps, so I believe that that is probably completely fine for something to look really good.

Resolution, I can tell the difference.

#31 Edited by trugs26 (5961 posts) -

Depends on the game.

But generally speaking, 720+60 frames.

how does 60fps seem frantic? It makes it smoother. And for online multiplayer fps you want that higher framerate

#34 Posted by DocSanchez (2379 posts) -

Like I said, I don't want to have to choose. We're in 2014.

Yeah, because it is true. There are a few specific cases where you can, for example if a color changes drastically in a really period of time (1/60fh of a second), but in the vast majority of cases, the human eye cannot tell the difference. You only process at something like 20fps, but because you receive a continuous stream of light, if there are two different colors that are shown in the same "frame", you can tell. There is a very specific time in which you can tell the differences and that is exactly what I said.

#36 Posted by FreedomFreeLife (3180 posts) -

I rather prefer 2560 × 1600 and 100fps like all games on PC

#37 Posted by _Matt_ (9443 posts) -

2560 x 1440 at 60fps.

For consoles, it depends on the game :

Shooters and racers I'll take 60fps

Any thing else I'm happy with 1080 30fps. That said should still get both at this point.

#38 Edited by Snugenz (12804 posts) -

1440p/60fps, consolites lol.

Shouldn't you have been aborted at conception?.

He's here to make sure the rules are adhered to, he's allowed to have an opinion, and an awesome one if i do say so myself.

#40 Posted by CrownKingArthur (5262 posts) -

compromise? sorry. i don't have that pokemon.

#41 Posted by wis3boi (32013 posts) -

1440p, 60fps

#42 Posted by VanDammFan (4354 posts) -

honestly i dont care. Ive played games that are lesser res and lesser fmp. never mattered to me. i think there is way too much importance put on those numbers.

#43 Posted by ni6htmare01 (1112 posts) -

I have a 65 inches TV so 1080P makes a big different for me so I have to go with 1080p 30fps

#44 Posted by ShepardCommandr (3270 posts) -

1080p always goes first

#45 Posted by razu2444 (808 posts) -

720p/30fps only if the graphics are drop dead gorgeous. If an action game then 60fps.

Oh yeah and PC sucks...

#46 Posted by Puckhog04 (22766 posts) -

Care more about games than visuals. I just want good visuals and a smooth framerate. Don't care for these "uber" settings that require a $2000 computer. I play videogames as a hobby...my life doesn't revolve around them.

#47 Posted by Riverwolf007 (24192 posts) -

when i dial in my pc games i prioritize lots of other effects over resolution.

draw distance, frames per second, particle effects, lighting, water, ect ect....

i would rather see effects and frames per second maxed over resolution and resolution is the first thing i sacrifice because it is such a huge resource hog.

as long as i can get 720 in there someplace i'm good.

#48 Edited by MiiiiV (535 posts) -

Voted for 60fps if I have to choose, games run much more smoothly and response time is better. If you have a decent pc you adjust the settings and still have 60fps (as long as it doesn't drop below 45fps, I think most people will be fine with it) in most games at 1080p. Pretty much every console game that's claimed to run at 60fps has frame drops to, sometimes severe drops. Constant 60fps is of course better but it would require the graphics dialed down both on pc or console, the difference is that on pc you can choose for your self or if you have a hi-end pc, you barley have to compromise at all to run games at a constant 60fps at 1080p or higher

#49 Edited by PAL360 (27310 posts) -

1080p30 (assuming it never goes under 30fps) or 900p60. 720p this gen is completly unacceptable.

Except the human eye can tell the difference, and it doesn't see in frames. Since you brought up movies which are 24fps, if we couldn't see the difference then it shouldn't have mattered when the hobbit was shown at 48fps; however, there were a number of complaints
