you forgot a very important factor
movies run at a stable 24 with 1/24s TPF(time per frame)
while games are rendered live on hardware the FPS we see is an average
so you can have a game running at 30 frames and not stutering then one too many explosions happen
and the frame rate drops to say 27 while this is still higher than 24
its not going to be as smooth becuase its an average and the TPF for a few frame was really high
while the rest were at 1/30s and averaged in the end at 27FPS
its those frames that make 30 feel worse than 60
and the main advantage of 60fps(other than it being generally smoother) is protection against demanding frames (explosions and effect heavy frames)
which why a game capped at 45 (or even 30) is better than a game capped at 60 but can't achieve it and dips a lot with a bunch of frames going higher than 1/24s to render

@ @gilldominic max payne 3 is 33 GB
and given that console games run from disk and are not fully installed means they can't compress and then decompress during installation
that's more believable than making people download garbage data
and GG only worked on a few console games
none of them was downloadable at launch
so this is their first shot at this

so a launch title is capping the disk size
guess this gen is going to be rich with disk swapping
ah well it was bound to come back

(yes im aware that xbox360 had disk swaps but)
