So this thread is where we'll confine all the comparisons and list wars to, lets keep the rest of the forum clean and keep it civil in here!

The first video comparison someone made is pretty terrible (AC Valhalla only 1080p and not cut well), so I'm only going to link it in spoilers

May I suggest we stick to reputable places like Digital Foundry for stuff like this?

And here's a list wars post from me comparing new games launching with each console.

PS5 launch games not playable on xbox series (and review score so far):

- Spidey MM (85)
- Astro's Playroom (84)
- The Pathless (83)
- Bugsnax (76)
- Sackboy (tbc - great so far)
- Godfall (tbc - mixed to poor so far) *timed exclusive
- Demon's Souls (reviewers only just getting copies)

Series launch games not playable on PS5 (and review score so far):

- The Falconeer (72)
- [Tetris Effect Connected (tbc - will be amazing) *this is a multiplayer expansion of a PS4 game, PS4 version playable on PS5 through BC but multiplayer is exclusive right now]
- [Yakuza Like A Dragon (87) ** this is playable on PS5 through PS4 backwards compatibility but native version is next year]

No question that Sony knocked it out of the park here. And to think there was originally supposed to be Deathloop, Kena and Destruction All Stars while xbox was also supposed to have Halo. I think both of those losses roughly balance each other out to be honest (Halo ~= Kena+Deathloop+DAS). However, xbox really miss Halo here while Sony don't care about those three games slipping, if anything its a good thing for all parties involved.

The lack of Halo is very apparent. Maybe I'll try Falconeer. It doesn't seem like the type of game I'd care for but I'm itching for a launch game.

Xbox seems to have a consistent - if very small - advantage in three of the four modes, while its inconsistency in the high frame-rate mode is puzzling to say the least.

Across a range of content tested in this mode, both consoles delivered a 100fps average. However, the average does not tell the real story. Xbox retains an advantage in cutscenes and in some gameplay content, but again, the boost is typically small. Meanwhile, in many of the gameplay areas we tested, PS5 is significantly faster and more consistent that Series X overall. It's conjecture on our part, but there is the sense that there's a graphics API bottleneck here that impacts performance on the Xbox side in some scenarios, while PS5 simply powers on.

In the meantime, the results seen here in the cross-platform comparison are fascinating. In terms of correlating on-paper specs to the actual experience on-screen, PlayStation 5 is either punching above its weight, or Xbox Series X isn't delivering on the full potential promised by a bigger silicon investment and a much more substantial memory interface. It'll be interesting to see to what extent the results seen here extend to other titles, and we'll be reporting on that as soon as other games are available.

Could it be that TF isn't everything?!
