In terms of resolution, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions run at a resolution of dynamic 4K (2160p), though the PS5 has a slightly lower average resolution than that of Xbox Series X.. Meanwhile, the Xbox Series S runs the game at a dynamic resolution of 1440p.

With regards to performance, the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S versions target a frame rate of 60 fps and adhere to it at all times during gameplay. In-game cinematics, menus, and special movements are capped at a frame rate of 30 fps. The PC version also performs well, delivering a solid 60 fps on the Ultra quality preset without issue on a reasonably capable system.

All in all, regardless of whether one plays Mortal Kombat 1 on Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS5, or PC, the experience is great, with stable performance across the board. That said, the PC version running on a capable system delivers the best possible graphical experience, followed by the Xbox Series X, though the differences are minor.
