Call of the Sea on PS5 runs at a higher resolution and has better performance than the Xbox Series version according to a new technical analysis.
Looks like It runs and looks better on PS5, these are just facts if the matter.
Sort of, the developer has said that the PS5 version is a patch ahead of Xbox, having launched 5-6 months later and that there is a similar patch coming for Xbox. So factually, yes it looks and runs better today, but not really a fair comparison & that'll even out likely when the patch arrives on Xbox too. The lighting on Series S looks terrible in the above video though, everything is so washed out. 4:05 in particular shows how bad it is in comparison to PS5 & XSX.
@ Orchard The problem is not the update but rather this: https://i.imgur.com/ptMS4l0... This differences we are seeing is either in the PS5'S favor or it is so small that you can't tell the difference until someone told you or Digital Foundry zoomed in 200% and literally started counting individual frames - something the human eye can't detect. People were not sold on that. That was not what was promised, and that's the issue a lot of people are having.
@Drew345 We’re about 6 months into the generation with barely any real next gen games out for both platforms. We’re going to have to wait a bit to see how that performance gap shakes out for real. It’s clear to anyone that 2TF would get you a good boost in visuals and/or performance, but I also wouldn’t be surprised if developers don’t utilize it - it’s extra work and work that only applies to one platform, so I’d expect a lot of devs just get to parity between the two platforms and stop there.
@ orchard definitely not doubting you, seems odd. Can you provide a link to the dev saying as much mate
@ArthriticPowers Sure, and no prob. https://twitter.com/COTSGam...
@Orchard nothing conclusive, but the timing seems more than convenient here's hoping
The developer said they will release a patch for Xbox now that the PS5 version is out. Regardless the PS5 version looks and performs better as we speak.
Agreed, but it also looks great on the XSX. According to this, the PS5 version does seem better.
The toolz on XSX, right? :/
"toolz"? What are you a 7th grader?
@SPEAKxTHExTRUTH What's the problem? Yeah, toolz. You know rapper Smilez?
Frame rate AND resolution? I doubt this lasts.
But when ElAnalistaDeBits said Xbox performance was better on RE Village, everyone cried about how they fake videos to benefit Xbox. Weird that they made the above video.
The fanboys will go hunting for some obscure game that doesn't even demonstrate any remotely high graphical features and take a win anyway possible. Really pathetic 😂
I'll say it again. Trust reliable sources such as DF, VGTech, or NXGamer.
The whole system is dumb. You have games that are 60fps on both consoles 98% of the time but these sites pick out the a few instances where one console has 2-3 fps less than the other and declare a "winner". Listen, if 98% of the time the framerate is the same and the other 2% NO ONE in the world would ever know there was a difference without a frame timer then the games are the same. Both will offer an identical experience to 99.99999% of gamers.
Agree 100%. Most of the differences these sites highlight are not even noticeable.
Yeah I've noticed if a game doesn't have alot of drops I don't even usually notice them
It's how they get their clicks. Still, it's nice to see the PS5 performing so consistently well given the doubt certain gamers were peddling before launch.
It’s ridiculous having fanboy wars on these consoles especially now… they are so close in terms of performance it doesn’t really matter they cost the same if you get the Blu-ray player… can we all just agree that Microsoft and Sony did a brilliant job with there consoles and move on and start enjoying beautiful games whatever comes in the future regardless of platform you are on….
nxgamer is the best
He does a great job. No doubt.
Followed your recommendation and did not regret it.
How this game doesn’t run at 100 FPS is beyond me. Played it on series X and I’ll be damned if it isn’t the slowest most basic game I’ve played in a long time. I stopped playing on level 3 cause I just couldn’t take anymore. Doesn't change the fact it runs better on PS5, in fact it’s totally unrelated. I’m just saying the game is a sack of smelly bootyholes.
Basically call of sea Devs applied the latest updates of their game to the PS5 version. It's coming to the Series version too.
Is this what we're going to get for the entire generation now? Splitting hairs over a few fps here and there?
Back in my day, we used to just play games and enjoy them. Now it's all about counting pixels and seeing how often a game dips a few frames below its target...
Back in my day, we used to go to a friend's house to play the rival console. Now it's all about organised boxing matches to determine which console is the best.
Back in my day, I just hoped I could have $5 worth of quarters so I could put them on the Galaga or Asteroids machine to show that I was next in line to play at the arcade.
Arcade etiquette. What a great memory. I remember putting my “got next” $0.50 on the edges of the screen for games like of SF2, MK, and KI.
Spot on mate, modern gaming is completely out of touch with what makes it so enjoyable in the first place.
Back in the day when there was a comparison, the differences were significant due to the completely different architecture and hardware. Now a days these fanboys will try to tell you a slight frame rate drop on certain scenes despite both versions looking and playing identical is a make or break situation
You can see it's cleaner on the PS5.
Pretty cool game. Perfect Game Pass game too. Both look great, but PS5 has the visual advantage on this one.
