The rest of your post was fairly factual but in regards to what you just spouted.... STOP.
I am so
sick and tired of seeing people mindlessly quoting this misinformation. First it was "The human eye can't discern above 24 frames a second." Then it was 30, and now it's 60 apparently. It's like a chain email of stupidity that never ends.
The fact of the matter is **** is relative
and it's entirely dependent upon the person and their own optical nerves as to where they can discern slowdown. Personally mine's somewhere around 80-90 I *personally* can't detect anything above that. One of my roommates, Peter, however, can't tell the difference above 30 himself -- it all seems the same to him and he's 20/20 vision whereas I'm blind-as-a-bat nearsighted. His wife, on the other hand, constantly complains about frames above 90 being slow even though I can't tell a difference.
It's completely relative.

No, they dislike you because you're an incorrect and blatant **** that doesn't offer anything but incorrect information and a pathetically combative attitude.
Plus, ZAM's hardly hivelike (for FFXI and FFXIV anyway) unless it involves subligar, Tanaka, or BARANCE.
My friiend the PS3 dev says they really haven't maxed out the capabilities of the PS3 yet. It's not quite completely optimized.
Think of the difference in graphics between FFX and FFXII. We thought that FFX and MGS2 were the extent of what the PS2 was capable of. We were wrong.
You got me to thinking on that so I loaded both of them up to try to compare. Looking at both games the actual graphical fidelity doesn't really seem to be that different (and if anything the jaggedness of a lot of FFXII looks worse actually). The difference, though, seems to be in the textures and artwork. I wouldn't be surprised if working on FFX and then FFXI helped them to squeeze as much as they could out of the limited VRAM.
That's probably personal tastes though. They look the same to me in terms of fidelity (aside from the textures in FFXII being better). Edited, Feb 7th 2013 3:34pm by Viertel
