PGR3 frame rate in doubt

Gone in 30 fps rather than 60?

A post by site administrator Chris Pickford over on the Bizarre Creations forums has revealed that there's no guarantee Xbox 360 title Project Gotham Racing 3 will run at 60 frames per second.

"We're still aiming for 60, but at this point we can't confirm anything because, quite simply, we haven't finished the game," Pickford wrote.

"If we said 'We're definitely going to be at 60' and them some mad glitch occurred which forced us to 30, we'd look very silly."

And that's all Bizarre is prepared to say on the topic - the thread has now been closed, and Pickford added that the studio "won't comment on threads like these in the future.

"It's obvious we want and are aiming for the highest possible," he continued. "But as we've not even finished yet we'd be pretty dumb to 'confirm' anything."

So it looks like we might not even know what frame rate PGR3 will run at till the game's release, which will tie in with the launch of the Xbox 360 later this year. But if we hear anything more before then, we'll be sure to let you know...
