I still don't understand why people have a hard time with 30fps. I would rather play a game at max settings averaging at 27-35fps than half settings and get 60fps. As long as the framerate is relatively consistent.
There's a huge difference in responsiveness between 30fps and 60fps. But regardless of that, even if you don't see the benefit yourself if console manufacturers target 60fps it means there's more power available for those developers that want to target 30fps to increase the graphical fidelity. The only reason for to target 30fps would be to save money but both Microsoft and Sony did that with the current generation, hence why there are so many games that run below 720p (the official minimum resolution).
As always, anyone that takes gaming seriously is better off with a PC. If you want the console experience you can always connect up a HDTV and a wireless controller. Games are cheaper, performance is better, graphical fidelity is much better, load times are shorter, you have the option of mods/tweaks and you don't have to worry about all your games becoming obsolete when new hardware comes out.
