Discussions of Borderlands 3 do not cease: there are problems with saving, and a link to Skyrim, and unexpected charity. it seems that the game will not leave the pages of gaming media for a long time. over, the Digital Foundry team threw up another topic for thought. It turns out that the performance of the new item is condemned only on the advanced versions of the consoles, whereas on the basic Xbox One and PS4 the action feels quite comfortable.
Perhaps the reason lies in the fact that Gearbox decided not to take risks with the base devices. As a result, the target resolution on the PlayStation 4, for example, is 1080p, and this has a positive effect on the frame rate. The fps on the Sony “younger” console is slightly higher than in the higher resolution mode on the PS4 Pro, and more stable than in the performance mode. However, visually the image quality is not too different.
On the Xbox One S, resolution dropped to 1600×900, and texture quality is worse in places than on the PS4. Because of this, the Digital Foundry team remembered the assumption that experts made in the first review. For some reason, Gearbox seems to use the same graphics settings on Microsoft consoles, which are slightly lower than on Sony devices.
Both base consoles give an “honest” 30 fps. This limitation allows you to hide stuttering and other minor problems that were noticeable in performance mode on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Experts suggest that Gearbox intentionally paid more attention to optimizing the game specifically on standard versions of consoles.
