So as expected, Sony undersold their BC system and MS capitalized on their confusing messaging. "No doWnClockING! No boosT moDe!!!"

In short, XSX BC effective advantages:

1. Higher resolutions for mid-gen patched games.

2. Generally faster loadtimes (which is fairly surprising).

3. Partial BC with OG Xbox and X360.

4. Potentially Auto-HDR and other enhancements.

5. Potentially less bugs and errors?

PS5 BC effective advantages:

1. Larger library of games.

2. Higher resolutions for unpatched games.

3. Generally higher and more stable framerates.

BC hasn't looked so good since the overpriced early PS3!
