PS4 ICE Team Programmer: Anything Below 720p/30fps Is Unpleasant
Cort Stratton who is a programmer at Naughty Dog and also a part of Sony’s secret ICE team, has shared his thoughts on frame rate and resolution. 
Cort Stratton has added his own opinions into the matter stating that anything below 720p resolution and 30 frames per second is “actively unpleasant.” He also believes that “anything higher isn’t necessarily a clear improvement,” in an interview with Polygon. He personally prefers high resolution over frame rate since according to him it does not make much difference when the game runs above 30fps.
Dropping the frame rate from 60 to 30 fps results into a gain of of 16 milliseconds of frame time and he rather use it “to make the game world significantly more beautiful/fun/rich/complex/awesome, instead of wasting it all to make the game marginally more responsive to player input.”
