Ubisoft are aware of the issue https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthread.php/2317891-The-division-2-update-1-30-PS5-problem?p=15338284&viewfull=1#post15338284

This is also in BC mode. Still a poor showing, but thats Ubisoft :P

This isn't a native port? 

It would explain the drastic difference in load times. IIRC, most BC games running on a Series X have been noted to have faster load times than PS4 BC games running on PS5.

The Playstation 5 version is held back by the developer rather than the actual hardware.
Wait for proper patches and updates to fix everything.

Which is the same thing that has happened in previous comparisons we've seen (Dirt 5, AC Valhala).

Now, there has been a trend here and that is that, for some reason, developers have been targeting a higher resolution on the XSX, which is odd seeing as that has usually caused a few more frame drops when compared to the PS5 versions, which makes me wonder why didn't they just target the same resolution for both versions?



This is a BC mode patch, Xbox series X will always win those. We have seen this in Star wars: the jedi order, Cyberpunk and Mass effect remake will probably be next.

It's digitalfoundry speculation that something went wrong with the PS5 patch, we don't know that.

Some of those Xbox Series X games have received additional updates that smooths out those frame drops.

Developers have done the hardware profiling and are targeting set settings and resolutions, it's just back end tweaking and bug fixing mostly at this point. (For both platforms.)

The Series X is undoubtedly the technically superior console, so by default the general expectation is higher resolutions and framerates.

When the PS5 has even less visual features than the PS4 Pro, we can safely say we DO know that something went wrong with the patch.

Either that of PS5 BC would be complete dog shit in every game, but that isn't the case (even though XSX BC performs better overall).

Looks like a pattern is emerging. BC upgrades almost always favor Xbox. Next gen/cross gen releases favor PS5 but that pendulum is starting to swing with Hitman 3.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 



 

I could understand the comparisons with the 360 vs PS3 and XB1 vs PS4 however this gen, their is no winner. Its just which game gets patched first or who spends more time optimizing their version etc. I still love Digital Foundry and ill continue to watch it as they are the best when it comes to insight info etc. But comparing versions mean little these days, too many lazy devs to take this serious.





A very fast response from ubi. Weird...
