eh, the difference in resolution is not that big, however playing at a locked 60fps compared to 50-51 FPS is much worse especially if you play in a performance mode. Do you know what the goal of a performance mode is?

Man, when they said the Xbox Series X needed tools, they didn't mean you. :)

Stop being dishonest, you know they highlighted that cutscene because that is the only place that presented problems on PS5, the rest of the game has a higher resolution and performs better on PS5. No need to be bitter much. :)

XBSX. The most blurry console ever

So :
- lower resolution on XSX performance mode compared to PS5
- camera stutters on both XSX and PC in cutscenes, but not on PS5

PS5 is the definitive version of this game confirmed. But at least XSX version is fine too.

If you find it too blurry on XSX, you can still go 30 fps quality mode like Shinobi did.

I love the irony or Xbox players having to play 30 fps mode after all those months of bragging about paper specs though.

eh, XSX runs now at a much higher and more consistent FPS and a higher average FPS. How is PS5 better? Lol
The resolution difference can’t be noticed anyways, since it’s very rare and most of the time the same.
What you notice however if you have a higher FPS.



Keep up? It runs the game at higher FPS

suddenly FPS don’t matter. Only RES:


Reslution dose not matter now, then xss is more powerful then the xsx as the framerate is better at 720p lol, why cant u just take the L on this and one year maybe xsx might run better then ps5, if not ohh well, sometimes u win and sometimes u lose.

But the framerate is not better on S than X. Did you not watch it.

Its sad I had to go back and re watch the video to make sure I wasn't tripping seeing some of these replies...

They clearly said:

The patch didn't change performance except for that initial cut scene, and John had to reboot the PS5. That ironed out any issues he had after the patch.

Except for the initial cut scene, everything thing else is unchanged for PS5.

They even redid the torch scene and compared it to pre patch.....

Look, it is what is is. Series X will get better in the future and with more patches.

Maybe Xbox SX is just slower overall than PS5 ?

Yes. All this dumb talk about the most powerful console. If PS5 performs better in most games like we see now, it's probably because... it's the most powerful console overall.

A console is a lot more than a raw GPU / CPU number of teraflops. There are tons of other parameters like custom hardware, caches and APIs. PS5 was just designed better. Consoles are not PCs, they may be designed the way you want.

If raw number of teraflops always meant the console was more powerful, we wouldn't have seen the 360 clearly beating PS3 in multiplatform games, because the PS3 had a lot more teraflops.

720p on the series S is pretty messed up tbh. this is a next gen console. 4 FULL RDNA 2.0 tflops. 3.4 ghz CPU. 2.4 gbps SSD. Velocity architecture. This simply shouldnt happen.

And this is a cross gen game. How is this going to run a next gen 1440p 60 fps game like demon souls? at 720p?

Wow. The game that keeps on giving. I will admit is is a bit fun to watch the "most powerful console" narrative and the Sony FUD that was spread around go up in smoke. I believe XBOX "fanboys" should have a better sense of humor about it. It's not like there is enough difference to matter unless you just want to paper war and not actually play games.

Best place to play? The console you own.

Thats a cutscene and they mention it . Gamepkay they r both locked now with ps5 having 40% more pixels on the screen . Stop being disingenuous. Bitter much ??😅

Don't even bother replying to some guys, it's a waste of time. Even my sweet cat understands that a 40% more pixels on the screen with both Version at 60fps during gameplay means much better performance for PS5.

But no worries, the "Muh Tools" will arrive and XSX will be stuck at native 4K/60fps as Phil Spencer promised everybody.

Its just a little poke in the ribs at the X folks. When PS folks have to eat their words, it will be just as funny for the Xfans. No animals were harmed either way.

The XSX still got an upgrade here, I'm sure nobody would notice the little reduction in resolution while actually being in the middle of a combat. Stutter or tearing are far worse!
Overall a good patch on all sides, despite all the misinformation up front.

But it's so funny how the downclocking and 9TF narrative has completely disappeared.

Ubi games were never known for being top of the line in quality or being a technical marvel.

I'll hold my judgment until after seeing multiple multiplat titles.

This thread is filled with so many people trying to make their PS5 purchase justified by crapping on the Xbox, and Xbox fanboys trying to justify their purchase by falling for the bait. You guys will argue over everything like your own self worth depends on it. The way you people attack each other and how much you care about all of this borders on mental illness. This stuff isn’t healthy.

So you expect a 20-30% XSX advantage over PS5? Because parity isn't going to be a win for XSX.
No. I never expected a difference that substantial at all. All that was were hardcore Xguys feelin themselves after the teraflops win. You have to expect, at least a few 3rd party games on the Series X will be better than its PS5 version (even if its negligible). These things have a way of evenin out over time.

By the time the mythical tools start working were gonna see a ps5 pro out by then.

This has obviously fucked up all the marketing they did all year, and possibly fucked up all the upcoming marketing. No doubt they scrambling behind the scenes.

I wonder how much of this you actually think is true or what is just basic message board posturing? The need to win at conversation at the cost of actual discussion. So gross. You guys are toxic to the core and make the experience here so much worse than it has to be.

I feel when they said this is smallest power gap between 2 consoles they were right . Once devs get more used to xsx dev kits I m sure both will become identical which means gamers win as u can play wherever u like .

MS playing the power card all year isn't something made up unless you've been living under a rock. They got jackshit for launch and need the more powerful console marketing for third party games to last them until they have something significant next year or 2022. I don't believe xsx will see any big advatanges anytime soon so yeah any marketing for that needs to be thrown away.

The point is right over your head. Yeah, keep telling me what you think about the power gap. Keep telling everyone. It will totally make a difference AND validate your existence.

That's not true. Assassin's Creed Origins was considered one of the best looking games at the time when it came out.

This.

Although I hate xbox fanboys, I'd hope things get better on their end and achieve at least parity with PS5 for the sake of their mental health.
