FIFA 16 PS4 vs. Xbox One Graphics and Frame-Rate Comparison


FIFA 16 has been released for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, delivering an equally satisfying experience on both current-gen consoles. Featuring the same exact graphical settings and assets for both versions of the game, as well as providing a constant 60fps gameplay frame-rate on both platforms. Digital Foundry has put the two versions to the test, and as can be viewed in the videos below, the results were quite satisfactory.

FIFA 16 provides the same exact experience on both the PS4 and Xbox One

As Digital Foundry explains:

Putting parity above all else, FIFA 16 arrives on PS4, Xbox One and PC with a near pixel-matched output on all three. It sticks to series tradition by keeping console-specific strengths limited to exclusive content, in the form of select cards in the Ultimate Team mode - where Xbox One gets a handful of legendary players this year. From a technical standpoint though, there's little to separate the console versions in terms of visuals or features.

The only area where this 30fps cap is really felt is in the 'Be a Pro' camera mode. This lets us see the pitch from a player's orientation, and here the game locks to 30fps as we get a sideways view of the pitch, revealing all 22 players, referees and the crowds. It's a slight damper on the experience, and sweeping camera pans are noticeably less fluid than in regular view. On the plus side these scenes have a perfect lock on 30fps, and just as with 60fps play, we never see a frame dip below this number. As for PC players this isn't an issue at all, and every camera mode, replay and set-piece stays at 60fps if that's our intended setting in the menus.

The experience proves to be exactly the same on the two consoles and indeed on the PC as well, with the option to use higher resolutions of course. Regardless of the version you chose FIFA 16 provides a worthy enough update from last year's iteration, hinting to a bigger overhaul for next year.
