Mark Rein also responded to the recent rumors that UT3 was running at 60fps at LCG. According to Mark, UE3 has more frames and more detailed than Gears. When a poster wrote that it would not be possilble to run UT3 at 60 fps, he quickly dismissed that rumored and said:
"60 fps with UE3 is possible if Epic sets that as our goal. They chose not to do that with Gears of War because Epic wanted to deliver a cinematic high-action experience with high-end graphics. Mark thinks everyone can agree we achieved our goal. With UT3 their goal is an even higher level of action, an even higher level of visuals, and to achieve this with even more players/bots in the game. Our goal isn't 60 fps because they would have to compromise on some of those things to achieve it in every situation. Mark thinks, in the final game they're going to lock frame rate at 30fps and you'll be so happy playing the game, so thrilled with how amazingly it all comes together"
