Far Cry 6

Far Cry has never looked so stunning, with luscious tropical vistas rendered at 60 frames per second and 4K resolutions on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. If you own a PS4 or Xbox One copy of the game, you can upgrade to the Xbox Series X | S* or PlayStation 5** edition respectively at no extra cost when your new console arrives.

Explain this then.

So can Dolby Atmos on the Xbox One. Sony are just trying to catch up to the field.

That's quite the downplay. The PS3 could do ray tracing as well does that mean the RT in the new consoles and video cards are nonsense too? Or catching up? Of course not, it's now done with ever improving hardware solutions.

Same with 3d audio. The PS4 did it too, many PSVR games did too, but it was done in a GPU/CPU intensive way. The Tempest Engine does it all in hardware and severely improves upon it, not just with how many channels it can handle but also using different HRTF user profiles.

And apparently it's also a lot easier to implement, plus the users and developers don't need an expensive license...

To be fair, there will be differences. PS5 will have slightly better sound with Tempest, and better controls with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. Controls are the biggest difference according to today's impression videos.

Controls and sound should make PS5 version the best version of every multiplatform game, and shine even more in exclusives obviously.
Just lol
Sound will be the same. You dont get better controls because your triggers vibrate etc...
An Elite controller will give you "better" controls because of trigger stops, programmable profiles and paddles which make things very comfortable.

The best console version will be on Xbox this gen, if you like it or not.

Everybody praises Dualsense, some even called it a massive competitive advantage, sorry if it hurts you so much.

Sony haptics seem to be the best ever made, nothing to do with vibration.

Tempest also brings better sound, while res and fps are the same.

So yes they'll probably have the best version of multiplatform games, don't jump through the window.

UBI had to update their verbiage because idiots don't understand what "and" means. Imagine the surprised look on their face when they find out if you order bacon and eggs for breakfast you actually get bacon AND eggs lol.
