It seems that some games will have better frame rates on Xbox Series X | S compared to PS5. Recently, it became known that games like Rocket League and Call of Duty: Warzone will be able to run at 120fps on Microsoft’s new console, while not on PS5.

As you may know, a next-gen update for Rocket League will be available in the future. This will allow users to enjoy the game at a lower resolution, but with a frame rate per second of up to 120 on the new Xbox consoles. On the other hand, PS5 gamers will still enjoy 4K, but at just 60fps. According to Psyonix, the developers, this is due to how backward compatibility is implemented on each hardware. This was what was commented:

“Enable 120 hz on Xbox Series X | S is a minor patch, but enabling it on PS5 requires a full native port, this due to how backward compatibility is implemented on the console, and unfortunately it was not possible due to our focus elsewhere. “

On the other hand, games like Star Wars: Squadrons and Call of Duty: Warzone have a similar story. Both titles will be able to run at 120fps on Xbox Series X | S, while on PS5 they are limited to offering 60fps. Here’s what Digital Foundry member Richard Leadbetter had to say about it:

“At this time, Sony limits 120Hz support to games designed specifically for PS5, which means that ‘enhanced’ PS4 games such as Rocket League and Warzone cannot take advantage of the feature.”

This is not to say that 120fps is not possible on PS5, it is just that more work is required, something that could affect the development of other projects. However, it is also important to mention that the Sony console shows better performance in other sections, as this Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla comparison shows.
