Resident Evil 4 Remake Comparison Video Reveals How the Game Runs on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S

With the recent release of the highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 remake, an in-depth video showcases and compares how the game runs on both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X/S. Both consoles contain their pros and cons, and this video essay provides great information on what Resident Evil 4 fans can expect from the remake’s performance.

The remake of Capcom’s iconic installment in the Resident Evil series has been anticipated by many fans of the franchise ever since its announcement. Although there are a variety of great titles in the franchise, Resident Evil 4 is hailed by a lot of fans as one of the best entries in the series. Despite the original being released in 2005, many gamers are excited to see how Capcom has made the survival horror title even greater with the innovations of current-gen consoles. The technology behind gaming consoles has come an incredibly far way since 2005, and it’s exciting for some to see these improvements and which console excels best at certain technological aspects.


An in-depth video by Digital Foundry showcases a deep dive into how Resident Evil 4 runs on PS5 and the Xbox Series X/S. For starters, image quality between PS5, Series X, and Series S all vary in different ways. Series X has a crisper appearance in visuals while the PS5 appears to be a bit blurrier, and the resolution of the game running on Series S appears less detailed than both of the other consoles. Although the Resident Evil 4 remake excels at its story, visual issues can be seen on all three consoles.

Furthermore, when running Resident Evil 4 on Series X with the default settings, it runs at a fairly solid 60 FPS when there’s not much action on screen, but adding any type of visual options, like ray-tracing, causes the frame rate to drop significantly. The PS5 also suffers from some significant frame rate drops but keeps a consistent 60 FPS more often than the Series X. The Series S performs worse than the other two consoles when changing anything from the default settings, leaving Digital Foundry to recommend that the best way to play Resident Evil 4 would be to keep it on its original settings.

Despite these visual and performance issues, the Resident Evil 4 remake is a stellar game thanks to other aspects of the horror title. However, when it comes to performance, some players who are passionate about those details may find themselves a little disappointed, but that likely won’t distract from the game’s great scares and action.

Resident Evil 4 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
