The vast majority of gamers can handle 30 fps without complaint, and it's vastly easier to capitalize on more complex visuals than on higher frame rates.
Trying to get 240fps out of games, as a standard, would set back other aspects of IQ by nearly 10 years.
Yes, unless everyone demanded it. It would be nice if some company would push aggressive marketing to make every customer see a real difference between 60hz and TRUE 240hz. I'd say they'd go ":O". I think the normal customer don't care because the current FALSE 240hz monitors look like crap, and feel like crap due to interpolation etc, etc. So they just think all HZ beyond 60 hz looks crap for whatever reason. They might've shot themselves in foot with that FALSE HZ, cuz they've lost a selling point in future with TRUE higher HZ monitors, unless they market and admit they cheated the customers with higher HZ before.
If even 1/3 of the consumers demanded TRUE 120+ hz as standard, due to someone's aggressive marketing, a lot of companies would need to change their plans. This would give the market yet another point where to make money. Everyone'd buy new monitor due to this and new systems.
IQ would go back a few years yes, at first, but I suspect the aspect of $$ would make hardware companies pick up speed, and we'd end up with same IQ level in couple years. Win-Win situation for us and them.
I'm bad at economy and don't understand marketing, and if this would even be possible. I'm sure people will come to educate me on this matter, and I thank you for that.
