Most console games always had a more or less consistent framerate. It seems that with the PS3 and Xbox 360 however, quite a few titles suffer from framerate issues.
For the most part they run smoothly, but there are occasional problems with slowdown. Mass Effect had them, for instance, even though the 360 was the primary platform. Two Worlds, a PC port, was the worst example I've seen. Every few minutes, it would come to an absolute standstill for 3 to 5 seconds. I'm not exaggerating. It was rather distracting. Fortunately, framerate issues aren't something that bothers me unless they are really bad, like in TW.
