Analysis: Black Ops III PS4 Outperforms Xbox One Version

It seems most big multiplatform titles this generation fare better on Sony's console.

Earlier this week, a Digital Foundry analysis found that Fallout 4 performed better on PlayStation 4. Now, they come to a similar conclusion for the recently released Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Their latest technical analysis proves the PS4 version features better resolution and frame rate when compared to its Xbox One counterpart. While both systems could manage 1080p during cut-scenes, only PS4 maintained that native resolution during gameplay, while Xbox One dropped to 900p. Furthermore, the report finds that Microsoft's console rarely holds that 900p.

"The Xbox One release possesses a consistent blurry appearance when the action really kicks in: fine details are frequently smudged over, while geometry edges appear rough and fuzzy. It's a substantial downgrade over last year's Advanced Warfare, where Sledgehammer stayed locked at a 1360x1080 resolution during the more demanding scenes."

In terms of frame rate, both versions have difficulty maintaining the goal of 60 fps but PS4 once again has the advantage, albeit a slight one: Digital Foundry says the PS4 version averages 51fps while the Xbox One version comes in at 49fps. In general:

"Performance ranges from 40-55fps and seem highly variable in motion, leading to inconsistent controller response and a stutter to motion we don't usually associate with the series."

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Not sure we need to rub it in for each and every game, as the PS4 advantage is a common trend in pretty much all head-to-heads.

As long as the XB1 version isn't crippling and unplayable, everyone still has fun!

I'm hoping Nintendo comes out with guns blazing and brings out all sorts of games to it's new system to give Sony some competition. Without it, we will get screwed.
