    This SICKENS me. Trying to force parity on all the platforms simply because they cannot keep their promises.

    If I was a game developer I would say no to both Sony and MS about limiting PC games to 30fps and continue to make them 60fps. Why should Pc gamers suffer if their console counter part can't do 60fps on a consistent basis.

    I don't see how this could possibly be true. There are less than a handful of games that ran at 60 frames last gen and almost none that ran at 60 frames at 1080p.

    Most games this gen have been 30 frames too except for indie games and remakes of last gen games.

    Sony literally has nothing to gain from doing this.

    MS and Sony can both benefit from this because if a product is the same or similar across the board then the idea is more people will just buy the console versions. If this carries on, then, basically there's little point in upgrading your PC because our games will only run at 30fps anyway.

    The real problem ofcourse is the PS4 and X1 are both under-powered and already maxed-out by current games compared to where PC gfx are at and so we will have to wait years before PC games are actually PC standard again.

    Much as I like many Microsoft products, I can see why the company might do this and it's plausible. I don't quite get why Sony would have an interest in this. Is the idea that Sony don't want PCs to out-compete PS4's?

    So as a PC Gamer what exactly I can do?

    I don't think vote with your wallet will work in this scenario?

    The only way is to have unlocked/unencrypted game files to make the life of modders easier to fix the games after release or something similar.

    It's not that simple. Have you tried to do the same with Dark Souls? NFS Rivals? Skyrim (above 60FPS)? They are all unstable.

    The game engine has to support running at higher / variable framerate otherwise unlocking the FPS will cause unwanted issues.

    Me too. Mantle came along and proved that M$ have been neglecting PC gamers. Now we have evidence that they are actively against PC gamers.

    The sooner somebody creates a better Linux alternative to DirectX the better!

    Well, yes. But what do you think will come out of it? Probably the same as usual: nothing.
    Maybe we all should send them a letter full with powdered sugar to scare them a bit.

    Heh - gaming is such a lucrative business now, no wonder we're basically going to take whatever they give us. Glad there aren't any games that I would die to play nowadays anyway.

    Oh dear, this is not going to end well.

    But if true then this is scandalous.

    30 fps has no place in PC gaming. This wouldn't do AMD or nVidia any favors for their high end gpu market.
