Devil May Cry 5 Plays Like a Dream, But It's a Nightmare on Xbox One S

With the exception of the divisive 2013 reboot by western developer Ninja Theory, Devil May Cry diehards haven't received much love from Capcom since 2008. But with this year's proper numbered sequel, the father of modern character action games is back in full force.

I feel those that bought the game on the S especially since ever other platform runs the game smoothly.

XBS is not even the XBox base, the XBO is. Imagine playing on it. And that's what most people have.

AnthonyDavis1900d ago

I play on max settings on PC in 4k. Still ain’t like a dream.

darthv721900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

most people have the S, not the og fatty. They discontinued that when the S came out and the S has sold more units than the og and X combined.

And honestly, the fatty not be the best performer but it does alright. It's what i use and I dont have any issues but I know I'm not getting the most out of it but the game still plays good. And that's what matters most... that it's a good game.

AnthonyDavis1900d ago

^thats a lie. How can it possibly be fine if my max PC experience isn’t fine.

jagermaster6191900d ago

Like ps4 is the main thing people play right...not the pro.

The S is probably the most common. At least based on speculated sales over the years. The OGX1 wasn't on the market that long before the S came out, and it's been the predominate seller since it was released.

While I have issues with the actual gameplay/characters, I haven't seen a single complaint about hardware issues on PC other than yours. If you're having issues running it, you're either running it above your specs or something is happening with your actual hardware.

Ehhhh the graphics have flaws and gameplay. Voice acting is bad.

I was playing on 1440p and the frame rate is 144 or higher.

Razzer1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )


Runs perfectly fine on my PC.

"Voice acting is bad. "

So just imagine how bad the voice acting must be on Xbox One S! /s smh lol

As you can see, 6 downvotes proves that they care, and you replying on my comment proves that you care. Seriously dude, no one will also ever care what you think. Find some friends if you think that’s even possible. Oh and stop trolling.

at least they can see the the butts without giant lights to cover them up....

Livingthedream1900d ago

People upgraded to the X cuz it does 4k with better graphics on most games, just like many upgraded from ps4 to pro for the same reason

DrumBeat1900d ago

I upgraded because I like the beefiness of the X, and own a 4K television, and as late in the game as the X may be, I've gotten plenty of use out of it.

Honestly, casual gamers (not in the know) aren't really even aware of performance issues. They're not performance conscious. They play their favorite games and have no idea what 'frame rate' means, or what Digital Foundry is.

xRacer74x1900d ago

Your Post reeks of jealousy. Its okay you can go out and buy an X and join the rest of playing the best version of console games.

It appears as though devs are leaving the S and original Xbox One on the back burner as this gen draws to a close, as the games are undercooked (pun intended) on both platforms.

Games are getting more complex, and the older Xbox models just can't keep up. They're really focusing on the more capable hardware of the X, and that's good, but it stinks for S and Xbox One users.

NLink07141901d ago (Edited 1901d ago )

Xbox one S is underpowered and modern games released in 2019 have a hard time running on it. This and the weather at 11!

It’s not meant to be fanboy. I just don’t get how many more articles are needed to state this fact already 🤷🏾‍♂️

Visceral891900d ago

I feel bad for casuals that bought the one s thinking it was a gaming upgrade over the og xbox one.

Destiny10801900d ago

every game has to be taken individually

the last 6 or 7 games ive seen on digital foundry run like a joke on xbox-s

it looks like there not even trying to optimise for xbox-s

hiawa231900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

Well, of the 4 consoles the base X and S does have the weakest GPU so I would expect it to perform worse on the orig XB1 and S. I think the devs should have paired the res back to 900P on the X1 orig to get a more consistent framerate.

Computersaysno1900d ago

At least we know what the 'S' stands for.

xRacer74x1900d ago

To me it means the same thing on pS4 as the Xbox S

AuraAbjure1900d ago

Xbox one's 6 year old gpu is showing its age give it a break. Next gen consoles will be optimized for video games and not be equipped with stupid slow cpus and motherboards designed with mobile flippin' architecture.
