Microsoft acknowledges Xbox Series X and S performance issues

Microsoft has acknowledged performance issues with some Xbox Series X and S games that were found to run better on PlayStation 5.

In contrast to Microsoft’s marketing message that the Xbox Series X is the world’s most powerful console, Digital Foundry’s analysis of games such as Devil May Cry 5, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Dirt 5 show deficiencies on next-gen Xbox consoles compared to PS5.

Here’s Digital Foundry on Devil May Cry 5: “In terms of correlating on-paper specs to the actual experience on-screen, PS5 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.”

And here’s Digital Foundry on Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla: “… the key takeaway is that PS5 is much closer to the 60fps target more of the time, while Xbox Series X can struggle.”
