Resident Evil 7: PS4 may offer the “complete package,” but it’s “generally excellent” on all platforms

Resident Evil 7 was released earlier this week, and if you’re torn regarding which platform to purchase it for, maybe this report from Digital Foundry will help speed up the decision making process.

According to Digital Foundry, the visual experience for Resident Evil 7 is “generally excellent across all platforms,” but there will always be one version which stands out from the rest – whether that be PC, PS4 or Xbox One.

When testing the game on PlayStation 4, Digital Foundry found it ran “in native 1080p with a solid 60fps,” and the PS4 Pro sku offered a “minor resolution boost and tweaks in lighting.”

The Xbox One release seems to have taken “a small hit to image quality,” and the frame-rates tended to “fall short of sustaining a locked 60fp.” Still, Digital Foundry said the Xbox One version of Resident Evil 7 is still “excellent overall,” and console owners should still pick the game up.

PC players will find this version of the game is the “most technically accomplished release,” as it offers higher resolutions with “the most refined presentation available.” This is due in part to added motion blur effects and quality anti-aliasing.

However, when PSVR support is taken into consideration, right now, the PS4 version “offers the complete package.” At least until other VR models are supported for PC users.

Sounds like you can’t go wrong no matter which platform you choose. That’s good news for everyone.
