Kutaragi Watch: PS3 to Run at 120 FPS

Father of the PlayStation Ken Kutaragi dropped a bombshell at the Tokyo International Digital Conference last week. He announced that the PS3 will be able to run at "an unprecedented" 120 frames per second. (Most games today run between 30 and 60 FPS.) What does this mean for you, dear gamer? Nothing at all, really. There is no TV that can actually display 120 FPS. Kutaragi says that, "future television technologies will support these refresh rates." Get it? Future. Not now, not when the PS3 comes out. Future.

"Kutaragi acknowledged that while there aren't currently any televisions capable of refreshing the screen at a rate of 120 times per second, he wanted the PS3 to be ready to make the best of the new technology when it arrives."


Hey, if Sony wants to start producing 120 FPS sets I'm all for it.

He also revealed that the PS3's MemoryStick slot will be replaced with a portal to the fourth dimension, in preparation for the day it is discovered by scientists.
