Why does Xbox include frame rate in their ads when you can’t monitor it?

From what I’ve seen, there’s no way to track frame rates in any game or just in general. I see all this 4K 60 hype, but how do I know that all isn’t bullshit if I can’t see a tracker for myself?

The only game I know that displays it is Fortnite. You can tell if a game is 30 or 60 though. Ones butter smooth, the other makes you throw up.

I do wish all games had this option though.

up to the game devs. fortnite has it in their settings and apparently some other games do too

It’s something that would have been measured by the developer and probably by Microsoft that the average framerate is ___fps. Do you really want to sit there and look at the number while you’re exploring and in some intense action scenes? Do you really need to see it to believe it?

Places like Digital Foundry do their own independent analysis for most games, I’m sure if the dev was lying then DF would catch them.

In a few games you can turn on a small menu that has frames and other important info, rainbow 6 siege has one that I know of

It’s very easy to confirm. You may not have the tools to do it but many do so rest assured MS isn’t going to advertise something that will be debunked immediately if they’re lying.

If you can't tell the difference between 60fps and 30fps without a tool to inform you, what does it matter?
