Ratchet & Clank on PS4 Runs at a Solid 30fps, Analysis Reveals

Putting the new Ratchet & Clank for PlayStation 4 through their tests, Digital Foundry confirmed that Insomniac Games reached their 30 frames-per-second target.

As you can in the above gameplay analysis video, Ratchet & Clank runs at 30fps, with dips and spikes to 28fps and 31fps few and far between. “The game does run at a solid 30fps for most of the time – barring one or two little blips here and there – you really have to pay attention to notice them,” Digital Foundry says.

They continued by talking about how this Ratchet & Clank runs at 30fps, while previous titles ran at 60fps:

What I found is that it will take a bit of time to get used to; the controls aren’t quite as responsive as they were before. But after about an hour or so I kind of got used to it and got back into the swing of things.

In our review of Ratchet & Clank, we said, “Though I could have used a little bit more story between the two lead characters, Insomniac have proven once again that they can make very polished games that are visually cutting edge, and give players plenty of ways to play and have fun.”
