double the detail at 30 fps over half the detail at 60 fps kinda worthless because it is hard to see finer details at a low 30fps rate.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I miss the old days of 16-bit games where it was always 60 fps. I remember playing Sonic the Hedgehog games with speed and fluidity before Sega gimped him to at times even less than 30 fps. This 30fps target is the biggest reason I prefer PC over consoles
I see your point. Like, it's offensive to talk about Nazism and how Jews are bad. But if you're a Muslim it's okay to praise Mohammad who also hated Jews. If Nazis wanted to be accepted in modern society, they'd have to say Hitler was a prophet of God, like Mohammad. Then they could claim religious freedom and say anyone who mocked Nazism was a bigot.
since vita can also be a ps3 controller, if you buy it and already have a ps3, you just made the Wii U obsolete. who will buy a Wii U when vita can do similar graphics and yet is entirely portable? i'm not paying 250 dollars for a vita though...after seeing how crappy their d-pad on psp was which made diagonals nearly impossible, and a lackluster "analog" slide pad, i don't want to risk paying such a price for a portable device only to be stuck with crappy controls.
Well Nintendo may have made a mistake then to focus so much on casuals. But casual gamers can't be dismissed too easy as still wanting dedicated portable game systems over smartphones, they will still want good gameplay that iPhones can't often provide for many game genres. Like Call of Duty I consider more of a casual game. Most people who for example bought CoD4 would play on hardcore mode (makes all weapons kill quickly for example), which removes much of the gameplay variations and cheapens the necessity of skill, and the game didn't offer a lot aside from airstrikes and guns, not even explosive barrels could be found in that interactivity-lacking game. People like that will still want buttons I think...But if you are talking of people so casual that they wouldn't even like CoD4 on hardcore mode, I think they'd be happy just buying a computerized playing card game. If smartphones change the industry, then I hope I see less crapware and development of less serious games out on 3ds/vita in the future and the don't-really-like-video-games-much people just stay happy with their $1 game purchaes, so everybody wins.
All these articles nowadays saying dedicated handheld gaming systems are threatened by smartphones need to stop. The justification that smartphones offer cheap and good-enough games is like saying no one would buy a an original Game Boy because buying a crossword puzzle book would be cheaper and good enough. As long as smartphones don't have physical buttons, they are at a serious disadvantage. I'd rather pay 40 bucks for Street Fighter 4 on 3ds than pay 1 dollar for it on an iPhone.
perhaps you noticed the ass framerates on the ps3 ports, though
sounds like your problems started from the moment you were using 2D displays
what the fuck do you know, cunt
1. Take out Linux functionality to provoke hackers to unlock your PS3
2. Boost hardware sales from all the people buying PS3's to play pirated games, while acting innocent to your third party game developers
