I remember Yamauchi talking about 120fps. Hoping that's still an option at a lower resolution with no raytracing.

True. Forget 4k. Give us 120fps and the latest hdr.

This game is for the PS5 correct? hope this is not an issue.

Some of the comments are hilarious


Random_Matt (on 02 October 2020)

Don't need 120fps for a racing game, comments asking for such probably don't even know what 60 is like.

Or perhaps the devs spoke to soon earlier and got several hopes up?

“In terms of frames per second, rather than staying at 60 fps, I'm more interested in raising it to 120 fps or even 240 fps. I think that's what's going to be changing the experience from here on forward.”

Also, the last several grab turismo's were 60fps. So if these other commenters have played gt in recent years then they know what 60fps is like...

LOL, targeting 60fps? Didn't they want to run it at 120fps? I thought that constant 60fps would be the lowest what we could expect...


UltimateGamer1982 (on 01 October 2020)

Release date?


AFattyGamer (on 01 October 2020)

Holy smokes get this beauty to 4k 60fps Sony :D!


Giggity_goo (on 02 October 2020)

this is the only racing game i like played them all but passed on sport because no GT Mode


tripenfall (on 01 October 2020)

Every game "targets"60 FPS no?


gtotheunit91 (on 01 October 2020)

Unfortunately not. Many AAA games will run at 30fps on consoles. Primarily has to do with them going after the latest tech rather than better performance. Hopefully this next gen of consoles will do something about changing that trend. I know the Assassin's Creed Valhalla is already confirmed to run at 30fps on the new hardware.

Valhalla is confirmed 4k 60 on XseX.

I would be fine with the demon souls option to be honest, 1440P/60 and 4K/30 would be enough for me. I think the Xbox series S is probably going to help with that. For most games outside of racing games and remakes/cross gen games I doubt 4k/60fps is going to be the standard for most AAA games.

True. But most devs will be lazy and just instantly use 4k and thow in ray tracing and such, quickly using up the gpu without proper optimization and being efficient. Some first party devs will take time learning how to maximise gpu/cpu/ram/ssd effieciency with fine tuning soft and engine enhancements and you will get 120 fps 4k. I just seriously hope not everyone goes 4k , better to free up gpu resource and do more with it.also heavy use of ray tracing is gpu and ram heavy, not really needed.
