Tekken 8 PS5 vs Xbox Series vs PC Comparison: Which Platform Is Best

Bandai Namco Entertainment’s latest entry in the Tekken fighting game series, Tekken 8, is now available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, and if you’re on the fence about which version to pick up, read ahead.

Tekken 8 offers a single graphics mode across all consoles. While the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions are identical in terms of visual settings, the Xbox Series S version of the game sees cutbacks in terms of texture detail, resulting in some surfaces looking relatively blurry. Meanwhile, the PC version of Tekken 8 has additional graphical settings not available on PS5 and Xbox Series consoles, such as per-object motion blur, as well as a wide range of image reconstruction options.

In terms of resolution, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of Tekken 8 operate with a dynamic resolution that targets 4K (2160p) but generally hovers at 1440p, with the Series X maintaining a higher average resolution. Meanwhile, the Xbox Series S version also operates at a dynamic resolution that targets 1080p but often drops to 720p, or even below. Meanwhile, on a capable PC, the game delivers the best possible image quality at the native display resolution with Temporal Super Resolution (TSR) enabled.

With regards to performance, all versions of Tekken 8 target a frame rate of 60 fps, and are able to consistently maintain it during gameplay. Though, frame rate only reveals a part of the overall picture. Input latency plays a vital role in a competitive fighting game like Tekken 8. The PlayStation and Xbox Series versions of the game have a delay of around 58 ms, while the PC version can go 1 frame lower on a VRR display with v-sync disabled, with a delay of around 42 ms. Unlike in Street Fighter 6, no console version of Tekken 8 offers a low latency mode that disables v-sync.

Load times on all three consoles are roughly equivalent, with the PS5 version loading slightly quicker than on the Xbox Series X|S.

All things considered, the PC version of Tekken 8 delivers more responsive gameplay alongside options for superior image quality. In the console space, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X deliver a fairly equivalent experience.
