PS5 Struggles With 4k Games, While Xbox Series X Does Not, Insider Claims

It seems that PS5 has problems with games that have 4K resolution, while something that Xbox Series X does not have, according to a well-known leaker and insider.

With the launch of the next-generation consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, players of both systems are very eager to learn more and more about games, and especially to see how the consoles are capable of both the next-gen consoles. Although, if what this insider claims will be taken as legal, PS5 would have problems with 4K games, while Xbox Series X would not.


This information comes a bit from the hand that could be known a few days ago, around Resident Evil 8 Village, in which this same insider stated that the game was in trouble to reach 1080p and 60fps on PS5, while on Xbox Series X everything was perfect at 4K and 60fps.

Dusk Golem, the well-known insider famous for his comments on the development in the Resident Evil saga, now comments that Resident Evil Village is not an isolated case, but it is the next-gen console of Sony per se. Responding to another user who asked about the performance of the PS5 in Capcom’s graphics engine, he answered that, although the game worked well at launch, the new Sony console had a difficult time with 4K games.

“People should get ready for the really real possibility that the PS5 is going to end up being the more expensive console between the two,” Golem said. “I’m trying not to say much here as I was asked not to but prepare yourself, which does put Xbox X in a position it’ll be the less expensive and more powerful console. I used RE8 as an example, but I’ve heard from other devs that PS5 struggles with 4k games in particular so you’ll see a lot of fake 4k. That doesn’t matter to some, but get ready for that too. Xbox X doesn’t have the same problem.”



Recall that Xbox Series X will be launched sometime in November 2020, while PS5 will release sometime at the end of this year. According to reports, the release date of the next-gen console of Microsoft is scheduled for November 6, check more information about it here.
