MLB The Show 22 PS5 vs. Xbox Series X vs. PS4 Pro vs. Xbox One Comparison
MLB The Show 22 is available on almost all of the major current and last-generation consoles. How well does the game run on them?
The game appears to offer three different modes on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The description is also clear enough: Faster runs at 1080p with better performance, Balanced manages to lie somewhere in the middle by running at 1440p, and finally, the Shaper mode runs at a native 4K resolution but at the cost of performance. Take a look at the new performance analysis of the game on all these platforms.
Xbox Series S doesn’t appear to offer any modes and seems to run at a native 1080p resolution. This is in contrast to the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X which support a faster and balanced mode. The balanced mode runs at a higher resolution than the Xbox Series S at 1440p while the faster mode appears to run the same as the PS5 and Xbox Series X, or the Xbox Series S.
While it is possible to run the game at a higher resolution on the last-generation consoles like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, this does come with a cost in the form of performance. The lower performance on the last-generation consoles can be a drawback compared to the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The visual detail is also pared back with various post-processing effects like the depth of field toned down.
Performance wise, the game appears to run slightly better on the PS5 compared to the Xbox Series X. While general gameplay is pretty much locked at 60 FPS on either of these consoles, the frame rate can drop during the various cutscene animations and transitions which rely on a strong depth of field effect.
MLB The Show 22 is available now for the Xbox Game Pass so if you are looking to give it a chance, you can grab a subscription and play it along with hundreds of other games on the Xbox consoles.
