3D not worth losing 60fps says Peter Moore

3D is too taxing on hardward says EA Sports' president

The president of EA Sports Peter Moore continues to be unconvinced by 3D graphics.

Moore told CVG that he believes that gamers don't want to give up the ultra-smooth 60fps frame rate for 3D graphics.

"I've seen a couple of our games running in 3D [behind closed doors]," said Moore. "There are some cool moments, but there is a cost for my development teams to do it. There is a tax on the hardware - you know, you need two cameras. There is a frame-rate issue... you've got to bring it back up again. I don't think gamers want to sacrifice a smooth frame-rate. In other words, games that are current running at 60fps going down to 30 just for 3D."

He added: "The other thing is, you've got to be able to play the game. You play FIFA from a top-down perspective. You play Madden from a top-down perspective. The higher the camera is, the less the impact of 3D happens to be."
