Persona 5 isn’t exactly a technical powerhouse but its stylish visuals and presentation is certainly praiseworthy. The game has been in development since 2012 – around the same time Atlus released Catherine – and was initially a PlayStation 3 title. However, Persona 5 didn’t utilize Catherine’s Gamebyro engine and instead, the development team built an entirely new engine to work with.
In its analysis, Digital Foundry writes that the game runs at 1080p at 30fps on PS4 and while that may come as a disappointment to some, its performance on the current-gen console is “rock-solid.” Although the PS3 version isn’t that far behind visually, it suffers from “obvious” screen-tearing in “almost every scene.” “Persona 5 suffers from tearing throughout the screen, which can be intrusive,” said Digital Foundry of the PS3 version.
As for the PS4 version, we’re told that the resolution boost is the “major improvement” the game offers over its last-gen sibling.
