Konami has officially created a Japanese page that pits each Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain release platform against competitors for our consideration. They don’t directly compare the PlayStation 4 to the Xbox One, but they do pit the older consoles against the new and the PS4 against the PC.
So, we have galleries for each below.
Here’s the order for each gallery. Higher spec’d platform goes first, then the lower. Two rounds of that, and then some side-by-side zoom-ins. So, for example, the first set of PlayStation 4 vs. PlayStation 3 goes like this: PS4, PS3, PS4, PS3, side-by-sides. It should be obvious, really, but I’ll denote each in the text below the galleries.
PlayStation 4 vs. PlayStation 3
Xbox One vs. Xbox 360
PC vs. PlayStation 4
What do you think? The game looks great in stills on all platforms, quite frankly. The PC is certainly the sharpest, though I doubt anyone would have assumed any different for the platform.
The site also indicates the precise resolutions and framerates for each platform. I’ve broken that down for you as well.
- PlayStation 4 – 1080p, 60fps
- Xbox One – 900p upscaled to 1080p, 60fps
- PC – Max 3840×2160, Max 60fps
- PlayStation 3 – 720p, 30fps
- Xbox 360 – 720p, 30fps
There you have it. Which platform are you looking to snag Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on? The game drops on Sept 1, 2015. That’s really soon.
