Double Fine’s Psychonauts 2 is almost here, as we know it’s scheduled to launch next month. However, it seems the hands-on previews have caused a bit of a talking point. One of these was by WellPlayed who although played on the Xbox Series X were provided the full breakdown of resolution and performance for each console.
How does Psychonauts 2 perform?
We know PC has an advantage in terms of performance, but the console side is the interesting point.
Let’s look at the max resolution across the systems.
- Xbox Series X: 3840 x 2160
- Xbox Series S: 2160 x 1620
This is at a 60fps setting, however, both versions will have a max framerate of 120. Naturally, this lowers resolution down on both systems.
- Xbox Series X: 1440 at 120Hz
- Xbox Series S: 1080 at 120Hz
Both consoles also offer HDR and VRR support.
How does it perform on PlayStation?
When you look at the performance values for PlayStation 5 we have a max resolution of 2560 x 1440. The only difference between this and the PlayStation 4 Pro version is the framerate. PlayStation 4 Pro runs at 30fps and PlayStation 5 at 60fps. PlayStation 5 has no HDR or VRR support. And it shows there is no native PlayStation 5 version. Browsing the PlayStation store only the Enhanced for PS4 Pro version is available. On the Xbox Store, it is listed as optimized.
When is it due out?
It launches on August 25th so we are very close to launching. For Game Pass subscriber’s it will be available in the service at launch. This is also applicable to many other titles, as we know from the E3 showcase. It has a price on the Xbox store of £54.99 / $59.99. However, no price point is appearing on the PlayStation store.
