Performance Analysis: Dark Souls 2

Digital Foundry:
The Scholar of the First Sin remaster compared on PS4 and Xbox One.

Set to be the definitive console version of Dark Souls 2, Scholar of the Last Sin gets a worthwhile debut on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In line with last-gen releases of this Scholar edition, each bundles in all DLC to date, adding brand new characters and tangents to its plot, with a slew of gameplay tweaks. Meanwhile, upgrades like more complex enemy layouts, improved lighting and superior effects adorn the current-gen releases - though the elusive Xbox One version comes with baggage not seen on PS4.

The Frame drop on the Xone is not so bad. PS4 is a clear winner here though.

I wonder if Dark Souls 3 will use DX12.

Jack_Of_All_Blades1480d ago

I hope so! DX12 seems to be shaping up to be a great successor to DX11.

DarkOcelet1480d ago

Yeah, I believe Gears 4 will look amazing in DX12. I cant wait to see it.

iiorestesii1480d ago

I would say that the dip on the X1 around 1:35 mark is a difference maker.

Gotta love these DF titles:

A game running better on Xbox One:

Xbox One trumps PS4 in Capcom's new sequel.

A game running better on PS4:

The Scholar of the First Sin remaster compared on PS4 and Xbox One.

Side note a the end:

Though the elusive Xbox One version comes with baggage not seen on PS4.

I'm glad that there're quite a few more sources online to see these comparisons.

Probably buying this after I'm done with Bloodborne.

Gonna pick this up after bloodborne (if I ever finish it!!) This game was never on my radar until I played BB, so perhaps BB would help Dark Souls2s sales a bit

Unless something somewhere goes wrong, PS4 version should always look or perform better.

Shineon1480d ago

U mean like if something goes wrong with that slow cpu

Genuine-User1480d ago

The same "slow" CPU is also part of the Xbox one architecture.

DarXyde1480d ago (Edited 1480d ago )

Same CPU. Microsoft just overclocked, meaning it's a whole 150MHz faster...or about 10%.

So about those GPUs...

EDIT: Let's not talk specs and pretend these consoles are insanely powerful. They really aren't, but they serve the purposes of this generation well enough.

iiorestesii1480d ago

This is true. Haters going to hate. Reality stays the same.
