If you’ve got an Xbox Series X/S then you can play the next-gen version of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. If you own a PS5, then you’re stuck with the PS4 version for now. This report comes from VGC, and states that while there is an updated version of the game for PS5, it’s just not as good as the one for Xbox Series X/S. It’s thought that this is due to Sony restricting quite a lot of elements when it comes to allowing developers to upgrade their games for their latest console. maybe Sony wants developers and publishers to charge for a new release instead of offering free upgrades.
So on Xbox Series X/S, you can now play this incredible Star Wars game at 60 fps, with a resolution of 1080p or 1440p. If you’ve got a 4K TV, load it up on there because I guarantee it’s going to look absolutely awesome. On PS5, everything is almost the same, but the graphics modes are much more limited. Once again, this is due to Sony’s own restrictions.
What all this shows me is that Sony is still compromising the player’s experience for money. They require a full release on the PS5 for all the console’s features to be taken advantage of. Microsoft on the other hand, they’re allowing developers to freely upgrade their games using all the power that their consoles have. It’s a much better place to play in all honesty.
When you combine the fact that Game Pass also now includes EA Play, and all the best Star Wars games, there’s very little reason to look at playing them on PS5. It’s sad, because I love playing these games and earning trophies on PS4 and PS5. I’m always one to look for the best-looking place to play my games though. Right now, that’s the Xbox Series X. Since I have Game PAss, I don’t need to buy a new version of the game in order to play it there.
Sony needs to figure out if they want their players to have fun and choose their platform in the long run. They can’t keep making decisions like this and expect users to stick around forever.
