Resolution 4k (3840x2160)
Frame Rate 60fps

Side by Side Comparison Technical Notes
This is actually one of the more straight forward comparisons you’ll see where the games are virtually the exact same on both platforms. Visually both are providing a 4k resolution at a stable 60fps frame rate.

You also have HDR on both sides. The load times are about a second or under for both, so that’s not even really something to compare since it’s basically non-existent. You do get this available on Xbox Game Pass if on the Xbox platform.

Whereas the Playstation 5 version benefits from subtle DualSense rumble and 3D Audio which is a feature on that platform. There really isn’t a whole lot to cover after that point, it’s very much the same experience on either side and even supports cross-play which is nice.

This is the latest entry in the long running Baseball series, with this year being the first that it’s available on multiple console platforms. It expands the scope of release, while including some new features along the way. That includes custom stadiums, adjustments to getting into the series and the jump to next generation with special features.

There are many modes to play including exhibitions, Diamond Dynasty or even Road to the Show among other smaller options like franchise. It covers a range of ways to play, and in general enjoy what the sport has to offer which is great for fans and newcomers alike.

It’ll be interesting to see how the series changes over time as it continues to expand to new platforms and be updated over time with yearly releases going forward. For now at least it’s basically the same setup which is highly appreciated I imagine by those on the Xbox platform since they get a high quality Baseball experience for the first time in ages.

Hopefully the comparison was helpful in understanding the changes that are being presented between these options. It can help greatly to have a quick visual presentation that’s lined up for a faster viewing.

This side by side comparison should really provide all of the info you need to know when it comes to matching up these choices and giving you the quick facts to see why they’re being placed up against one another.
