PS5 4K Development Has Been A ‘Struggle’ For Some Devs, Alleges Insider

The same leaker also says it's likely that Sony's system will be more expensive than Microsoft's

Even though we haven’t gotten any official dates for either system, we’re pretty close to the launch of a new generation of consoles. We know Microsoft will release their Xbox Series X at some point in November, and odds are likely the PS5’s launch will be around that same time frame. In the meantime, there’s still lots of speculation about both machines, and there’s some new rumors that are sure to get plenty of buzz about Sony’s machine.

AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem, who has leaked information about Resident Evil for years, answered a few questions on his Twitter about Resident Evil Village‘s performance. There he shared that apparently Capcom was having some issues with the PS5 version of the game. He also says he’s aware of other devs having the same issues, and it seems a lot of it pertains to the console’s ability, or lack therefore of, with native 4K. He says that we should be expecting a lot of “fake 4K,” (I presume he is talking about checkerboard rendering) with PS5 titles.

Dusk Golem isn’t too clear if he’s factoring in frame rate here or not, as games struggling with 4K/60 FPS meaning we’ll see a lot more 4K/30 FPS, or just 4K development in general. He still does say that Village will run fine. Another interesting point he makes is that he says people should get ready for the possibility that the PS5 will be the more expensive piece of hardware of the two, despite being ‘less powerful.’

We have seen the raw, on-paper stats for both systems, and it’s not totally unbelievable that the Series X has a bit more juice to run native 4K, but it’s worth keeping in mind here that while Golem has a decent track record on leaking about certain game franchises, this is really the first time he’s weighed on anything related to hardware power, so take it with a grain of salt. As I’ve often said about all of these talks of power and whatnot, we won’t really get an idea of what the deal is until the systems are out and tested in real world settings. Which will, hopefully, be very soon.
