Metal Gear Solid V is pushing for 60 fps on next-gen

As the next-generation of gaming chugs closer and closer to that November launch date, games are starting to look pretty amazing on a visual and technical side. And for Metal Gear Solid V, that difference is going to be seen doubly so when current and next-gen versions are compared.

Speaking to Eurogamer at TGS 2013, Metal Gear big cheese Hideo Kojima said that his team was pushing to get Metal Gear Solid V running at 30 frames per second on current-gen consoles. “For current gen we’re aiming at 30 fps and for next-gen it’s 60 fps Kojima said.

This game was originally developed for multiple platforms, multiple devices and multiple generations.

Fox Engine was created with the current generation in mind. Maybe with other games that are being created exclusively for next-gen it might look a little behind. Of course for the next generation the resolution and the lighting will look much better.

Gameplay wise it will be the same – we’re trying to make it as close as possible. The gameplay experience won’t be affected whether it’s next gen or current gen.

The game is looking pretty good so far, regardless of platform. Still, there’s something extra special about seeing a game with superb visuals running at a full 60 high definition frames per second.

It’s daytime soap opera visuals basically. Just without each cutscene ending with the character staring at the camera while some moody music plays in the background.

Like sand in the hourglass, these are the frame-rates of our lives…

  1. 60fps is what next gen should be about….it’s a crime that next gen games will still run at 30.

    Am I the only one that thought the TGS gameplay of MGS was very ‘fishy’? and by that I mean Splinter Cell – ish

    Don’t push too hard. We don’t want next gen rings if you know what I mean.

    This header sounded like, “I love my children and take care of them”…! That’s a dump statement cos you cannot say otherwise. “I’m gonna buy my 2yo a Rolex watch” <—– PUSHING

        Sorry about that; 60fps should be default in next-gen, just like that. 90fps would be pushing.

          Ahh yes you would think that 60 would be the norm. I can’t believe 60 fps is still pushing the boundries

    Now this game is the reason I’ll consider one of these already outdated next gen consoles.

            It’s not about pc vs console….It’s about the overall state of tech and I’m sorry but these consoles just don’t cut it.You can live in a bubble if you’d like.

            Well , you are only looking at things from a purely ‘technical power’ point of view….Graphical Power ain’t everything hey

            September 23, 2013 at 15:31

            ya, ya,,, blah , blah. Try explaining that to all the developers struggling to hit 1080p @ 60fps on these next gen consoles.

          • Umar Jaeger

            September 23, 2013 at 15:34

            Hmm, that’s a fairly mature response hey. well , each platform has it’s own strengths and weaknesses …. dismissing one or the other is just an act of ignorance

            Tired of people defending these consoles. Why is MS tweaking their console so close to release? Looking for ways to optimize performance. Why are developers struggling to hit 60fps on dedicated hardware? Now the entire industry has to release sub standard work just to make a buck coz Sony and MS will try to run these things for more than a few yrs….c’mon.

            ….. Sub standard?….again, basing it purely off raw power….Have you even played The Last of Us on CONSOLE? You would call that sub standard? … Consoles have a place in this industry just as much as PC does, and again, power is not everything. PC is fantastic and pushes graphical limits far beyond what you would see on a console…That’s great. But do not look down on a console….Sure Crysis looks AMAZING on PC….But so does Shadow of the Colossus…which is by far the better GAME

            Yeah, it just rubs me the wrong way , it’s not PC vs Consoles…it all just about games, on ANY platform. but yeah you’re right

            I agree people were saying the exact same thing about current gen during release but look at it, the current gen is still going strong.

            September 23, 2013 at 15:57

            Indeedio and it has some of the best games to be released this generation…sigh, guess these types of arguments will always exist

          • JHN

            September 23, 2013 at 16:01

            Correct people will always say consoles arent good enough.

            well, technically speaking …. the aren’t…. because consoles get their tech from the PC market … witch is obviously always far ahead of consoles, just saying…. don’t Shoot.

          • Umar Jaeger

            September 24, 2013 at 19:06

            …sigh….it’s not just about the tech when it comes to games….I am neither defending consoles nor am I insulting PCs…PCs are more powerful, what more confirmation do you want…but every platform has amazing games…despite the tech…jeez

            I totally agree…. but if a console game gets popular… in the end it usually ports to PC, and then you end up with more game play, better graphics etc.
            it all apples and pears really, I do still prefer a mouse and keyb to controller , but each to his own, Im not bashing consoles at all. …. well maybe a little 😛
            but in the end no matter what we agree on or not…. its still all about the gaming experience … that’s after all why were all here discussing this.

            Nope. People didn’t say that as current gen was a huge leap. Not so for next gen.
