Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga PS4 vs. PS5 vs. Switch Comparison: Is It Worth An Upgrade?
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available for almost every major platform, but is it worth upgrading to the new consoles.
After a long wait, the latest Lego game is finally out bringing the entirety of the Star Wars cinematic universe in a single game. It is quite an ambitious project, perhaps the biggest Lego game so far, and this shows when we take a look at the technical analysis of the game.
The game appears to offer 30 and 60 FPS modes on the PS5 and Xbox Series consoles, but this luxury is not present on the last-generation consoles. On the PS4, the game runs at a resolution of 1080p with a 30 FPS target while on the Nintendo Switch, it drops down to 720p in docked mode and 576p in handheld mode. The resolution is lower but the frame rate appears to be steady at 30 FPS.

Aside from that, the obvious downgrade is in the visual features like textures, shadows, and post-processing effects taking a look at the side-by-side comparison. In terms of handheld support, you can also run the game on a Steam Deck and play it in a better state than the Nintendo Switch, but you might need to tweak some settings to run it properly.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available now for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
