Fallout 4 on PlayStation 4 runs slightly better than Xbox One, PC still the best

Digital Foundry is back with more comparisons, and the latest game to go under the microscope is none other than Fallout 4. Shocked? I didn’t think so. The gaming world can’t stop talking about it.

Naturally, the PC version of the game is king, and if you’ve got the right hardware behind it, you’ll be getting a great experience.

As always, while the PC dangles in the heavens above, the battlefield belongs to the consoles, and once again, reports are showing the PlayStation 4 version edging out its rival on the Xbox One. The two versions are identical on the figures front. Both run at 1080p, and both struggle to maintain that ever important 30fps, but Digital Foundry claims that it has found some “stuttering” issues in the Xbox One build that do no exist in the PlayStation 4’s.

“It’s a glaring hitch downward, and matching runs to the gates of Diamond City shows Xbox One dropping to a record 0fps (zero) while PS4 turns the same corner at 28fps. Each has their blips, but having tested two separate Xbox One and PS4 consoles, the results are always the same across the world at large; we get sizeable stutters on Microsoft’s console that aren’t present on PS4.”

The PlayStation 4’s version also struggles more than the Xbox One in a few other areas, but overall, Digital Foundry recommends Sony’s version if the PC is not an option for you. Any way you go, gamers seem to love Fallout 4, and it’s one of the biggest critical hits of the year in spite of its performance issues.
