Battlefield 2042: PS5 vs Xbox Series X/S - The Digital Foundry Tech Review

Digital Foundry: Join Oliver Mackenzie for a look at the latest patched rendition of Battlefield 2042. We decided to skip the early access period to concentrate on the experience after the developers had the chance to address early issues. In our opinion the game is starting to come together, but performance and netcode needs polish - especially on Xbox Series X.

So yes PS5 wins. PS5 wins most performance matchups. Not all but so far for the first year Xbox often edges out I. resolution and PS5 wins performance.

I think you need to see this list. You'll be surprised about PS5 and how it performs against XSX!

BF2042 will be added later

Oh wow. PS5 is kicking Xbox's butt. I did not . expect this honestly. Why then does DF act so surprised when PS5 comes out on top.

Both have minor dips in the large scale battles, going as low as 55fps.

SX has better resolution maintained through.

Other than that, they both have net code issues that it seems all battlefeild games have.

gravedigger61d ago (Edited 61d ago )

But XSX has severe drops, as it is pointed out in the article too. The main issue lies with the unpredictable frame time spikes which can often go in the 100s of miliseconds on XSX.Yeah, PS5 got this in framerate

Yup. Even VRR can't iron out 0 FPS.

Mehh. Will stick to Halo. More fun anyway.

Did I mess something, I watched the video and not once did I see them say anything about PS5 being better...

Net code is not on MS it's on EA right?

All I know is that video above clearly state both console have the same FPS drops and Xbox has better Resolution.

Eonjay61d ago

They don't say it in the video but on the web page they state that Xbox needs the most work. And I agree it is on EA. This is not an indictment of the Xbox. But sustained 0FPS pauses makes this version worse than the PS5. Clearly.

It's Digital Foundry. They won't say it in the video, what I always find funny about the guys at Digital Foundry. Sometimes they really don't like to admit when PS5 outperformance's XSX.
