Last year saw the inception of the new-gen of gaming. The much-awaited release of the new-gen consoles from the house of Xbox and PlayStation came with the promise of revolutionizing the entire gaming experience. Although its release was off to a rough start, the latest console from the house of Sony seems to have delivered the performance that it had promised. Thanks to its powerful hardware, the PS5 has been able to almost eradicate the concept of loading screen times and introduced 4K gaming at 120FPS.

With the advent of the new-gen of gaming, the latest video game titles have been taking advantage of these consoles’ powerful hardware to deliver the best experience possible. This naturally brings a comparison between the performance of these titles on the previous-gen consoles and the current ones. This is all the more relevant since the previous-gen beasts like PS4, PS4 Pro, or the Xbox One are not entirely out of the scene yet.

Recently, the popular YouTube channel ElAnalistaDeBits made one such comparison between the visuals of the latest title in the Resident Evil franchise on the PS4, PS4 Pro, and the PS5. Resident Evil Village already boasts of more detailed visuals than the previous titles, designed to make full utilization of the powerful hardware of the new-gen consoles. But how well does it run on the predecessors?

As you can probably gather, the PS4 failed to bring out the best in the game. The visuals on the PS4 Pro, however, showed far more clarity and came really close to that on the PS5. With Ray Tracing on, one can see every minute detail in the world of Resident Evil when run on the latest PlayStation console.

The PS4 ran the game with a resolution of 1600×900, while the PS4 Pro ran it on 1800p, reaching 2160p on 4K mode. On the other hand, the PS5 ran it on 3840×2160 resolution. Furthermore, with RT on, the lighting detail was beyond realistic on the PS5, with that of the PS4 Pro coming close. The latest console beats its predecessors in both dynamic lighting and particle detail.

Finally, one of the major features that the latest PlayStation console promised was the eradication of loading times. Well, while running this game, the new-gen console from Sony took a loading time of 1.86 seconds, while the PS4 Pro took as long as 33 seconds. The PS4 took 46 seconds to fire up.
