Numerous multiplatform games have a higher resolution on PS4 (full HD 1080p) than Xbox One (720-900p). While the difference cannot be disputed, whether or not this inequality matters is a source of contention and controversy. The contention is so widespread that it has been named resolution-gate. Some will strongly argue that the difference in resolution is negligible, others disagree fervidly. Regardless, resolution-gate has led to the common belief that multiplatform games are better on PS4 than Xbox One.
If this is the case, then multiplatform games should receive higher review scores on PS4. To test this hypothesis metacritic scores for all 97 multiplatform games were collected and analysed.
