Battlefield 1 Runs Smoother on Xbox One, Looks Better on PS4 (Video)
I know that title can be seen as a little confusing, but hear me out. Read me out? Sure, we’ll go with that. Battlefield 1 dropped on October 21 and has been quite wonderful for just about everyone, consoles and PC players alike. This, of course, is fantastic! What’s not fantastic is choosing which route to go in terms of platform. That may be a matter of opinion, though, with console wars and the PC master race and whatnot. Thankfully, Digital Foundry has put together a comprehensive comparison of how the game performs across PS4, Xbox One, and the PC, even though that is akin to comparing apples to apple pie. The pie is just better.

I won’t mention the PC stats, because it’s just not fair. During the video, and in their write-up, it is mentioned that the consoles’ performance is comparable to the medium settings, drawing things from both the low and high settings, on a mid-range graphics card in a PC. Don’t think you have to go out and buy the biggest, baddest PC money can get to enjoy Battlefield 1, though, because that is just not the case. It looks fantastic and plays incredibly well on both consoles.
With that being said, Digital Foundry finds that the Xbox One and PS4 are more similar than not, and both are vastly improved upon compared to previous Battlefield titles. Resolution comes in at 1000p on the PS4 and 900p on the Xbox One. During scenes with not much going on, the Xbox One can even reach that 1000p resolution, but very seldom. Frame rates tend to drop a bit on each console while stressed, but Digital Foundry claims it is not a major problem. Multiplayer brings about even more frame rate drops, but the PS4 tends to suffer greater than the Xbox One, dipping to the 30fps range at times. You can check out the entire in-depth analysis here.
