Psychonauts 2 Will Reportedly Run Better On Xbox Series S Than PS5

Double Fine's Psychonauts 2 has been getting a bunch of attention today following the release of various hands-on previews, and thanks to one of them, we appear to know the game's performance details for every single platform.

Aside from PC, both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have the obvious advantage, running at 3840 x 2160 and 2880 x 1620 respectively, both at 60fps. Alternatively, the Series X can run the game at 1440p / 120fps, and the Series S can run it at 1080 / 120fps, with both systems also containing HDR and VRR support.

As you can see from the graph above, the PlayStation 5 version runs the PS4 version via backwards compatibility, and so it's limited to just a 2560 x 1440 resolution, albeit at an improved frame rate of 60fps rather than 30fps. This actually means the Xbox Series S version is a significant improvement over PS5, which we've never really seen until now.

You're going to have fun regardless of which platform you buy Psychonauts 2 on, of course, but with the additional benefit of Xbox Game Pass on day one, it seems a no-brainer to play it on Xbox this August if you can.

What do you make of these performance details for Psychonauts 2? Let us know down in the comments.
