The lights are on
Wolfenstein: The New Order recently got a release date of May 20, but gamers have been looking for one other piece of information regarding which console to play it on. So far the PlayStation 4 has been outpowering the Xbox One, delivering higher resolution and/or frame rate. At least one game won’t force you to choose for these reasons.
Bethesda has confirmed that Wolfenstein: The New Order will run at 1080p and offer 60 frames per second on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. No mention has been made of the last-generation console versions.
We recently previewed the first three chapters of Machine Games’ take on the Wolfenstein franchise on a PlayStation 4 test unit, and it ran smoothly and looked great. You can check out that preview here.

Our TakeI expect that more developers will find parity between the platforms as they have more time to work with the hardware. There is a practice effect in developing for different platforms, and while it might be more challenging to coax more power out of the Xbox One, I suspect that developers will learn to do just that quickly.
