You also realize that the faceoffs they give priority is always one where the XBOX has some advantage, at least in their eyes........They rushed to push DMC 5 Remastered as their first faceoff, because they noted some modes which had advantages on XBOX, whilst being Sloth-Eyed on the better AA, slightly better lighting and textures there, their eagle eyes only work when XBOX has an advantage somewhere. They complained about 120Hz being selected for all modes on PS5, not as a bug or issue, but moreso as some problem with the PS5 version or in general and went about to knock the PS5 version saying "At least we could choose our framerate in the OS menu".....Yet I remembered you could have chosen 1080p on PRO to make games run faster and DF had a big problem going into the PS4 menu to do so, to show that advantage when doing an analysis....Cue Thomas Morgan in this faceoff, who still mentions it, they want selectable toggles in-game only, like Borderlands..You are right contrary to AC, Dirt and COD comparisons they didn't hesitate a declare a winner this time based on specific scenes in 120 FPS mode. I would expect this very interesting situation to continue in the future especially with Tom.
Pretty much any issue they will raise to be a huge one on PS and claim a better solution on XBOX.....For example VRR is now a win for every 120Hz mode, no matter if they are performing equally on both platforms with better quality settings on PS5, that's a win for XBOX due to VRR. Or PS5 could have a 60fps gulf over XBOX in a 120Hz mode, or a much higher gulf in COD and Dirt....it feels better to play on XBOX because of VRR, even if PS5 just drops a few frames left of 120, whilst XBOX drops wallops more with tearing, it plays better on XBOX because of VRR......
They have been so slow on the faceoff bandwagon.....I have no doubt they have been slow because of the volume of work......They have been going through all the games and selecting which ones has some XBOX advantage to prioritize publishing first and to select their wording to boost an XBOX advantage that's either trivial, not like for like or where they don't even show average framerates and stats but guesstimations......Now, if XBOX had the better effects, better resolutions etc....These faceoffs would read entirely different.....That's for sure, the importance of higher fidelity would be the most important thing....
