Sifu PS4 vs. PS5 Comparison: Is There A Major Difference?
Sifu is available for PC in addition to the PS4 and PS5. The game supports 60 FPS on both platforms, so what is the major difference?
Sifu is a fast-paced action game so the controller response matters a lot. In this regard, both PS4 and PS5 users can rest easy since the game appears to run at 60 FPS on these platforms. The performance of the game is also quite solid on the PS4 and PS5, save for some rare cases where it might dip on the PS4, e.g when fighting too many enemies at once.
First up, visually the only difference between the PS4 and PS5 versions of Sifu is resolution. All other features are nigh identical so you have the same shadows, same textures, and same post-processing effects. The PS5 version is reportedly running at 4K while the PS4 version settles at 1080p.
The difference comes down to the load times and DualSense support. Even in this regard, the load times are barely present in the game. We are talking about a difference of just a few seconds, not enough to even consider. PS5 loads near instantly for the most part and the loading screen is gone in a flash, while you can feel it loading on the PS4.
The last part to mention here is the implementation of the DualSense controller. In this case, the Haptic Feedback is utilized to a degree offering an authentic controller response to the environmental destruction, but honestly, it doesn’t feel that special.
If you only have a PS4, Sifu is perfectly playable on it and works well owing to its stylistic visual design which doesn’t appear to be taxing on the hardware. If you own a PS5, you can just enjoy it there but don’t expect to see any major benefits.
