The Battlefield Hardline BETA frame rate tests swing wildly between 60FPS and even goes below 30 FPS.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-battlefield-hardline-beta-performance-analysis

You've got to hand it to EA for a slick piece of fan-service. After completing its press conference with an action-packed look at Battlefield Hardline, the firm revealed that it was releasing beta code for PC and PS4 immediately, with none other than Sony VP of publishing and developer relations Adam Boyes popping up on stage to reveal how BF4 owners could get instant access to the code in all of its "1080p, 60fps glory". Live-streaming to the world is one thing, releasing code direct to gamers there and then is quite another - it's the ultimate crowd-pleaser, in this case marred by just one fact: the PS4 beta doesn't live up to the claims made for it.

Adam Boyes lying that Battlefield Hardline BETA will be available to PS4 fans in "1080p 60FPS glory". Now I have no reason not to think that the game will hit sustained 60FPS (Visceral have said 1080p/60FPS for both consoles) for the retail release, but why lie about the BETA Sony?

Its a beta... BF4 beta ran like shit even on the PC. The game is not even running at 1080p atm, but 1080p 60 is what EA is targeting on both the PS4, and X1.

Who cares? The game is terrible and probably poorly optimized

Sony lied .? Shocking /Sarcasm

OK let's be serious , it's beta . It'll get better once it is finally out . However it still won't be able to provide top of the line experience at 60fps on high settings all the time.

You like to think that games improve from beta to release. Someone didn't tell Dice that when they launched BF4.

Just imagine how bad xbone will be. BF4 was already 900p vs 720p and PS4 still had a much better framerate.

True , but Visceral games are pretty good at optimization . It depends on how much time they've got from EA to ship the game .

Who cares, this game is nothing but a BF4 mod, a $60 mod.

Same interface

Same menus

Same fonts

Same killcam

Same sounds

Same shitty netcode

Same rubberbanding

Same slow pace

Same gunplay

Same game assets

Same glitches

Jesus, the blurry crosshair for sniper rifles is in there! After people complaining for it in BF4 for months, which is still probably there.

They just grabbed an early engine build from BF4 and started working on top of that

Buy this if you're an idiot.

No, I'm complaining about Sony claiming that PS4 users will be able to play Battlefield Hardline BETA in "1080p 60FPS glory". There is nothing sustained 60FPS or glorious about this BETA on the PS4. Sony could have shut their gobs and just said BETA coming first to PS4.

More like the lem is using what little ammo they got. The funny part is he's too stupid enough to realize this just mean xbone will be even worse and is likely the reason xbone has no beta, to spare them the shame in comparisons lol.

I am in the PC and PS4 beta. I would bet money this game ends up being 900p when it hits store shelves. When in vehicles the game drops below 30fps. It is in "beta" though so things could get better.

I am beginning to wonder if many gamers even know what 60 fps looks like. I have been in heated arguments on Twitch streams over frame rates. I never bring it up. I just correct people when they are wrong. Just last night there was an army of people claiming the Destiny alpha was a steady 60 fps. I explained to them that I too was in the alpha and and have spent a good amount of time with it. I then pointed them to the DF Tech Analysis that proved it was attempting to run at 30 fps. I got a lot of "That guy doesnt know what he's talking about." They could not understand how I was not insulting the PS4 as if saying the game was running at 30 fps was an insult to them and the console they love so much. Buzzwords and fanboys are getting more and more out of control. Hell I got kicked out of a Infamous stream for saying that game wasn't 60 fps. We're cool now though.

It's 1600x900 at 30FPS. Sony's empire of dust crumbles. It's falling apart like a house of cards.

WOW, that's just sad. I do agree they'll make the frame rates steady on release but it'll be 900p. Personally, i find it depends on the game and situation to notice 60vs30fps. In the middle of combat situation, like FPS in this case, that's when i usually notice it more easily.

Didn't EA say the same thing about the UFC demo being 1080p on the PS4 when it's 900p with better MSAA than the Xbone?

EA also said that BFH would be 1080p on the Xbone "just like the PS4."

Looks like this is EA lying to Sony and passing it on. You know, EA, that company MS crawled up to last year for Titanfall.

Isn't "1080p 60 FPS" a buzz phrase at this point? Seems like publishers pretty much use it as a marketing tool at the moment.

Gets 60fps after your character spawns and is standing still. Drops to 29fps the second you move. Labeled as a 60fps game.

an early beta doesn't hit 60fps? Guess devs won't be able to fix that in the MANY months to come before the game comes out.

lol, even many PC gamers don't get consistent frame rates in most any game if they try to push the graphics which they all always do. I don't think the consistency of frame rates on a console is relevant when their gamepads have some 150ms + input lag compared to a mouse/kb on PC. You guys are overreacting cause even if the retail version is no different then at least all the other players are handicapped just the same. The human brain is really good at compensating for handicaps so it's not like there won't be skilled players on console just the same.
