Out of curiosity, do the console versions of Bioshock 2 use an FOV of 60?

Console games tend to always be a lower FOV. Sitting further back it isn't even noticeable to me. Sitting up close to the screen makes it really noticeable, which makes sense. Imagine a window: the closer you are to it the wider your view outside of it should be. If your nose is up to it you should be nearly 180 degrees (or whatever your peripheral vision is) but if you're 10 feet back it's considerably more limited.
It took me a while with Metro 2033 to figure out what felt so off to me, but once I figured it out I can spot it in any game instantly.

As far as I know I've never played a console game with FOV 90, but I'd be curious to know if it's also a bit disconcerting.
And while I buy that in BioShock 2 your FOV being more limited makes some form of sense (you are staring out of a diving bell after all) that doesn't make it any easier to my senses.


In any case, I'm not sure why you keep citing Bioshock 2 when it has nothing to do with Bulletstorm at all.

The FOV issues are a no-buy for me. It has made me wary of any game that the PC wasn't the lead for.

Plus Bulletstorm as a whole strikes me as a couch game.
