At the start of this new generation of consoles the debate of framerate and resolution importance still wages on. The gold standard to live by is a solid 60 fps and 1080p. If those numbers aren't on a bullet pointed press release somewhere, eyebrows and questions are raised. But what if hitting 30 fps is intentional…
Now that the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U are all out, you'd think it's the perfect time to dive into games on the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Games on those systems are typically cheaper and there are a ton of worthwhile titles released for them already, many of which are already in our backlogs, just waiting for us to tackle…
"If you're asking me to throw a rock in the PS4 vs. Xbox One resolution war, I won't. The game is not finished and talking about resolutions [and framerates] is, I think, pointless."

Most people probably don't consider themselves early adopters unless they're really excited about that newest black box that lets you play games. Dedicated fans, gadget enthusiasts, that kinda thing. But there are other considerations, too. Like, how many games are out for the thing? How much do they cost? How much…

That reason is the Far Cry 3 "best villain ever" Vaas-skinned Globox that's exclusive to the PS4 and Xbox One release on February 25th. And, yeah, an Assassin's Ray costume is pretty neat, too.
