    60 fps over a slight improvement in quality all day long.

    I'll see for myself shortly but apparently in this instance its far more slight. I'm dubious though

    If you're sat there not moving you might notice a difference, driving around? Doubtful.

    This is for Series X by the way, I think it's dialled down in res for Series S.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking too. Generally focused on car and road not how pretty the scenery is when speeding about.

    @kona786 thanks for the link, I think £23 is low enough to pay even if I suspect my interest may be fairly short lived.

    4k 60fps was enough to sell me on performance mode.

    Everytime for me. Amazing performance, the DF analysis just dropped - even at 60fps it’s holding a high resolution with ‘a very rare 1fps dip that we’ve not managed to capture’.

    Played an hour of fh5 earlier and it is a stunning looking game, looking forward to playing more tonight.

    Yep. The console will reboot and you're good to go :)

    Well FH5 certainly heats up the XSX! I’ve not seen my PS5 get as warm yet. Love what I’ve seen so far.

    I'll be using performance mode no way am I playing a racing game at 30fps.

    Form what I've heard so far the graphical difference is negligible

    Annoying I've got to wait for the 9th but my morals won't let me find pay to play shenanigans

    The scenery is always moving so quickly I’d never notice the difference in quality. Double the framerate on the other hand…

    Even when DF pauses the scene and zooms in 400% I’m still clueless :p - it’s why I gave up having the latest GPU for Ultra settings, I honestly can’t see it anymore. Modern games look fantastic regardless.

    I could deffo see the differences on demons souls, Valhalla etc but once you play with the lower graphics your eyes adjust anyway so doesn't matter.

    Haven't tried 60fps mode yet but the 30 as stated feels fine, not like other 30fps games that feel choppy.
    Game looks decent for a crossgen game, nothing too exciting as it's just cars but the environments look quite nice. Surprised you get a car like you get from the start, fh4 were a bit more modest options.

    Some really weird censorship on Beastie Boys Intergalactic.
