Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered: PS5 vs Xbox Series X Head-To-Head

Digital Foundry : Hot Pursuit Remastered launched in the midst of the next-gen console release frenzy, so we couldn't cover it at the time. In this video, John and Rich checks out the game and examine its latest patch that unlocks 4K 60fps gaming for PS5 and Xbox Series X users.

Very interesting! This goes to show that brute strength doesn't always win. Even with a game from the 7th gen consoles.

I was hoping EA would let 360 versions run on the xbo but... nope. It's odd too as there are lots of other EA games that are BC but not one of the NFS entires.

It could very well be licensing issues. I know things can get weird when it comes to these car companies.

Not paying £35 for this!

Clearly a glitch, since it only happens in the same section of track.... and it's same section that had issues with the Xbox One X version of the game.

Other than 3 turns the game it's locked at 60 fps.

StoneyYoshi38d ago

Still there, still matters. If it were the other way around, you probably wouldn't be saying this.

PS5 a locked 60 fps, series x dropping frames down to 42 fps and the series s locked to 30 fps

Weird to see DF go back to last gen versions to make excuses for the FPS drops. Have they done that when PS5 games had some blips like that too?

neutralgamer199240d ago


No by now it's not a secret DF favor xbox brand

oof4640d ago

Funny. Both sides feel they the competition.

Zhipp40d ago

Who knows? They've never done that with Xbox either afaik. Maybe it's something do during the process of researching for videos, but if it doesn't provide any useful information or context they're hardly going to bother including it in the video anyway. You guys are really reaching to find reasons to discredit DF these days.

GamerRN40d ago

It's EA... 🤷🏼‍♂️

darthv7240d ago

I feel like Series X and PS5 are capable of much more than that though. Especially since the Pro was doing 4k/50+ and the X was doing 4k/60-. Maybe even a 120 mode is possible?

NeoGamer23239d ago

This is clearly a development issue or bugs in the OS. XB One had no problems with 60 FPS racers. Never mind taking a two generation old racer and making it run on XB Series.

Cool framerate drops, bro.

Nah but seriously it runs fine at least

I would have loved this game more if cornering was not long and had to drift around the corner. also if it wasn't online , large map but had a menu and challenge mode like the original.

DeadSilence40d ago

Bugs & tools again?

Series Consoles are absolute disaster at this point.

thesoftware73040d ago (Edited 40d ago )

A disaster?

Wow, thats a stretch.

Kavorklestein39d ago

Oh well this game is blah anyway. Forza or Gran Turismo demolish this on every level and arguably look better and perform better too.

fsfsxii39d ago

not even the same subgenre lmao
