Carmack: There will be lots of 30hz games in the next generation

Legendary game designer John Carmack believes games running at 60 frames-per-second won't become a standard feature of next generation consoles.

Speaking on his Twitter account, Carmack suggested we're going to see more games take on the 30hz format.

"There will still be lots of 30hz games, which I donít think it is a good trade," he said.

"If TVs didnít add lag, it would be more clear cut."

Although merely a passing comment, Carmack's opinion should be respected, as he's the co-founder and technical director of id Software, who are well-renowned for pushing hardware to its absolute limit in games such as RAGE and DOOM.

Well, he is good at rushing out unfinished ideas and stories though - that can be better presented at 15 FPS than 120 FPS...
