Carmack believes many "Next-gen games will still target 30 FPS"

id Software co-founder John Carmack has stated that many next-gen software developers will continue to pursue 30 FPS titles, despite the additional clout of improved hardware from platform holders.

Carmack stated his concern over Twitter but didn't offer any reasoning for his claim:

The tweet was in response to a fan question regarding the use of 30 FPS in next-gen titles - a fitting question for Carmack - whose titles Rage and Doom 3: BFG Edition both hit that 60 FPS sweet spot.

Even now, 60 FPS seems to be the threshold to aim for, with many gamers voicing disappointment when game fail to hit that magic number. It seems as if 60 FPS will still be a gold standard in the next generation if Carmack is to be believed.

What's your view?
