Need for Speed Unbound is the first proper current-generation exclusive from EA. While it is not available on PS4 and Xbox One, there doesn’t appear to be a major reason for skipping on these consoles. It is not a visually demanding game at all, although it might make sense due to business reasons.
Now that the game is out for a few days, here is a comparison video that appears to highlight the difference between the platforms.

The performance of the game is best on the PS5 with a frame rate target of 60 FPS that remains stable.
