    Next-Gen Console FPS Games Will Have A Bigger Field Of View (Rumor)

    Game companies are trying to expand the Field Of View with Next-Generation Console FPS games. The current FPS games use a field of view of 60 right now. Photos has been released showing how much better the the field of view will be when the game companies expand to a 80-90. The larger field of view will also make 3D run smoother and will help reduce 3D sickness. Here are some comparisons:

    It's all up to the developers. But honestly, PC variants of most any game has already had a large draw distance. But the next generation will be more about continuous detail scaling than just an on-off draw distance mechanism, imo.

    Mostly affects PC games because PC users tend to sit alot closer to the screen than console users.

    Watch these it will help explain it better.

    I think more than anything, there needs to be better stories and longer single player campaigns worked into the FPS genre. FPS games also need a more cinematic gameplay feel to them. While the field of view is very important, TVs and monitors currently have a limiting effect to this. A better field of view would necessitate TVs and monitors have a more panoramic screen aspect ratio. Instead of the 16x9 aspect ratio, an aspect ratio of 40x8 or even 48x8 would be superior. Couple this with a physical curve designed to more closely match the viewer's natural field of vision and I think we'd have a far more natural and superior gaming experience.

    But this is not about the draw distance.

    Yeah, I just now realized it. "Field of View" confused me for a bit, lol.

    What that guy says there is, simply put, flawed. At least in the way he explained it.

    The problem with expanding field of view is that they have to fish eye lense even more which makes thing look distorted... Not sorething that's great
