This is demonstrated by this video comparison of the game between PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
Psychonauts 2 premieres this week and the return of Razputin Aquato will not leave anyone indifferent. The long-awaited sequel to the game Double Fine debuts on both PS4 and Xbox One, PC, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. However, as you can understand from our words, Psychonauts 2 does not have a native version on PlayStation 5, where the next-gen console runs the PS4 version for backward compatibility. A fact that makes the difference when comparing performance of the game on PS5 and Xbox Series.
The Bit Analyst has published this week a Psychonauts 2 video comparison between PlayStation, Xbox and PC, which reviews all the technical aspects of each of its versions. In the case of Xbox, the game runs at 4K and 60 FPS on a Series X, with a choice of 1440p at 120 FPS; while on an S Series it runs at 1620p and 60 FPS, also with an option of 1080p at 120 FPS. As we mentioned before, the PS5 version is not native, so the game runs at 1440p and 60 FPS on the new PlayStation, already 1440p and 30 FPS on PS4 Pro.
One of the advantages of native versions New generation for any game, is the possibility of taking advantage of the higher memory speed of these machines. And with this, the analysis of this channel leaves a very clear data: in Xbox Series X and S, the game takes 7 seconds in loading a game; on PS5, it takes 19 seconds to place an order. Again, it’s important to mention that PS5 runs the PS4 Pro version for backward compatibility, rather than a native version. And it’s also a huge leap compared to previous generation consoles, which take more than 1 minute to load the game.
Despite these differences, the channel claims that Psychonauts graphical settings are very similar on all platforms, although the PC version stands out slightly in shadows, draw distance, and anisotropic filtering. Psychonauts 2 will be available this Wednesday in stores, as well as on Xbox Game Pass, the service you can subscribe to for only 1 euro the first month.
