https://www.eurogamer.net/pentiment-director-blames-bug-as-former-xbox-console-exclusive-runs-better-on-ps5

Former Xbox exclusive Pentiment currently runs smoother on PlayStation 5 than on Xbox Series X/S, fans have realised - prompting the game's director to blame the situation on a "bug".

Social media user PeterOvo shared a screenshot from a video comparison capturing the frames per second performance between Pentiment on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The former was running at 120fps, while the Xbox version was running at a mere 60fps.

This inconsistency was subsequently brought to the attention of Pentiment's director, Josh Sawyer. The developer replied to assure players that 120fps will be enabled for Xbox "in the next patch".

According to Sawyer, this feature being disabled on Xbox "is just a bug" that will be remedied. While this is nice, it still seems a tad unusual, given that Pentiment has been on Xbox since 2022. Either way, a fix is incoming.

Wow, the power of the PS5’s SSD at work again. Can we say the PS5 version is the definitive version, then? What are your thoughts, SW?

@SolidGame_basic: Pentiment? Really? I mean, I know the name of the game is oneupping a piece of plastic, but celebrating 120fps on Pentiment because is looking a bit desperate mate.

@sakaixx: I'm still not sure why Minecraft has been 4k on PlayStation for 4 years while Xbox has been running it at 1080p even on current gen consoles.

@SecretPolice: Yeah it seems like an oversight

@SolidGame_basic:What I read is there was a bug they discovered in the Xbox version that will be patched on the next update allowing for 120fps mode... Ps5 version will already have it at its launch.

That called for generating a thread trying to score points for a game your a year late to the table with? Lol🤷 OK...

A bug soon to be fixed totally needs a thread.

It's not a bug, they just didn't care to uncap it until the dev of the PS5 version did just to get people to stop whining. Who says good things aren't gonna come out of these ports? 😆

Ok, calling it a bug is fine in theory. But why wasn’t the Xbox version patched already? Why wasn’t there a 120fps patch unti the PS5 port launched? And finally, why isn’t the PS5 patch “bugged”?

Outside of all that, this game couldn’t benefit less from a 120fps patch. Will the text look that much smoother?

Remember, the next time MS announces a new system (19% chance of it happening cuz they're most likely exiting gaming in 2027), don't believe their specs, its all fake. When a 9.2tflops system is destroying a 12tflops one, and for over three years now, that's just sad.

It's simply a bug, however you want to define it... It's A nothing burger hiccup that amounts to zero... Someone noticed that the extremely irrelevant 120fps mode on a game being prepped for ps5 didn't contain the same mode for Xbox and so now it will.... Amazing this thread generated a response let alone suggestions of conspiracy or fanboy point scoring. It's as if we've found the bottom of yet another barrel.

Someone noticed a mode wasn’t on Xbox? That sounds like fanfiction

The game was developed for Xbox consoles and PC over a year ago. It comes to PlayStation at a later date with better performance. As trivial as it is for a game of this type, some sort of development went into the PS5 port that didn’t happen on the Xbox port since launch 15 months ago. And you’re attributing it to a mistake? You don’t get a game running at twice the framerate on weaker hardware by accident…

Using Pentiment running at 120 Fps on PS5 for fanboy points is silly. It’s also just as silly to dismiss folks questions and to somehow come to the conclusion that the mode came to be by accident. If the game can run at 120fps on PS5 it should have been running at 120fps on Xbox in 2022.

I'm not attributing anything to a mistake... It's a game that doesn't necessitate the feature and wouldn't make a difference in any conceivable way towards the quality of the experience as you've stated, especially given there's a 60fps mode already established... If the dev says it's a bug and it'll have it in the next patch that's really the end of it. Going down a rabbit hole of wondering why a feature that doesn't matter isn't in the game isn't a slight against the Xbox.... If they're prepping a PS5 version and theyre patching it into existing versions, then what are we discussing?

Why was the superior console hardware not running the game at 120fps 15 months ago. The dev stated they had the game running over 3,000 fps on PC before launch…
