The team over at Digital Foundry have created a new video revealing the differences between the new Microsoft Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro while playing the Diablo 3 game. Which one do you think is closer to the 4K Ultra HD resolution? Check out the video below to learn more about the Xbox One X delivering a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and a full 4K experience, while the PlayStation Pro 4 off a 2880 x1620.
Digital Foundry explain more about their findings during the Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro play-off :
In terms of its visual feature set, Xbox One X is enhanced over the regular Xbox One edition, and ultimately it’s a match for PlayStation 4 Pro’s features. Screen-space ambient occlusion is the main one, and a comparison between Xbox One X and PS4 Pro shows a similar shading effect in the corners of the room. On PC, this is just an on/off toggle, and to be honest it doesn’t radically affect the look of the game in Diablo’s dark dungeons – only in brighter exterior scenes. The enhanced bloom on Xbox One X has a bigger impact. Again, this matches PS4 Pro, and any light points across the scene are nicely embellished. It’s a neat touch, and means outside of resolution, there is parity between the two 4K consoles.
Top-end resolution and improved effects wouldn’t count for much without stable 60fps performance, but the fact is that Diablo 3 has yet to show any significant dips below that number on Xbox One X so far. Again there’s scope for more aggressive tests on later missions, but the outlook is really good so far, with a solid 60fps line. In this sense, the game plays very much like the Pro version but perhaps more importantly for existing Xbox One owners looking to revisit the game, performance is now much improved.
