How many of you are getting sub-par framerates?

Meaning less than ~30FPS (or very stuttery gameplay). I don't know if it's just my PS3, PS3 in general, or if the game is too taxing on hardware universally. Even in regular situations when walking around, there is a fair bit of slight stutter.

However, explosions, high-speed motion blur, or more than 5 cars on-screen at once are really what kills frames. The online game I was in with SB, Piggus, Lynk, and Ska was a game constantly below 30FPS. It was a rocket launcher team deathmatch in Algonquin with medium traffic.

Looking at videos on Youtube (yes Youtube), I can see a very big difference in framerates. I'm going to visit a friend soon to check out how GTA4 runs on his PS3.

It's not game-killing, but it really is bugging me. I wanna know if there are other people out there that also seem to have bad FPS, generally.

4th day for me and no frame-rate issues with me, just the freezing glitch, but got that fixed.

360 is doing good, so neg.

Only lose about a quarter of the frame rate in intense action.

So I decided to reinstall the GTA4 data file to see if that was the problem. And now I'm plagued with the freezing problem! Rockstar screwed this thing up. :/

Mine is fine. I've had a couple of issues when a whole bunch of cops came all at once, apart from that, it's fine. And this is an old TV aswell. Atleast 10 years

I think what you see is normal.

I have seen this game on three different systems. All systems ran the game the same as I could tell.

Frame rate issues frequently online and rare-ish in single player.

I think this poll is skewed due to different perceptions of what low fps is.

For example, a good friend of mine bragged up and down the yin yang how great his fps were in BF2 when it came out a few years ago. I went to his house and I would say he was getting 25 fps tops with obvious hitching. He loved it thought it was great while I would not even play it for a minute.

I understand what you mean and took that into account.

If you're comparing to COD4 on consoles, it's obviously sub-par. But if you're comparing to a regular 30FPS-locked game, such as UT3 or Resistance, then you'll have a much more accurate perception of what I mean by sub-par.

Anyway, even after reinstalling, FPS are still the same.

on my 360......

its been really good but there has been a few times where its slowed down a bit.

i found a bug where i drove a tugboat up a ramp on happyness island and the frames droped to like 5-10fps and as soon as i reversed off the ramp it went back to 30....really strange but i would call it more of a bug than anything else.

but still its VERY minor for me and doesn distract me one bit.

Mines working great. I though I have had slow downs alittle when Major stuff goes on, but only sometimes.

I don't think mine runs a 30fps, when I rotate the camera around, everything looks fine but it just doesn't look smooth. Its not killing the game but you can see it.

The only time I get a frame rate drop is when I am crossing bridges between islands. But thats hardly noticeable lasts no longer than 5 seconds, I only noticed it because I was looking for frame rate problems after seeing a couple of threads about it. But really, I get extremely smooth game play. No matter how many cars, how rainy it is, how many people... I still run pretty smoothly.

Take this for example. Mine never runs that smooth. There's always very noticeable stutter no matter where I am, what I'm doing, etc.
