Kojima Talks Switching Controls and Consoles for MGS5: “Different Frame Rate Changes the Feel of Realism”
It may be the day after Christmas (in Japan), but Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Director Hideo Kojima seems to be still hard at work on the game, and he gave us a glimpse on his daily routine checking the game.
First of all, he mentioned that it’s annoying to continuously adjust for four different control schemes while checking the game every day.
Then he explained that different framerate (between old generation consoles and new ones. The former run at 30 FPS, while the latter at 60) changes the sense of realism, but still Snake keeps fighting on all platforms.
Switching between all those different controllers must indeed be quite challenging, and I wonder if the sudden frame rate changes make the difference between 30 and 60 FPS more visible. Luckily, as players, we have the option to choose one version and stick with it.
