After a long interval of fourteen years, Ubisoft has finally revived the Prince of Persia franchise with the new Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.
Although the game has two days left to be released on January 16, the performance analysis of the game is live.
In the comparison of the performance of the game on different platforms, the Xbox giant series X outcompetes Sony’s PlayStation 5.
Why it matters: Although PS5’s GPU is more technically powerful, the Xbox series X CPU’s extra clock speed seems to have benefited the console for these performance improvements.
As always, Digital Foundry is there to test the new releases on different platforms, so as the case this time, as seen in the performance comparison video of Digital Foundry, it is clear that the Xbox series X is more powerful for the game than the PlayStation 5.
Running the game at 60 FPS gets a similar result for all platforms. However, the difference becomes pretty obvious when it is capped at 120 fps on 4K.
Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown on Xbox Series X was phenomenal at locking the framerates to 120, giving the users a solid performance without any hiccups or shutters.
However, PlayStation 5 appears to be disappointing at that point as the console gets major drops at holding 120 FPS and to be precise, it even drops to a low 107 FPS.
Although both saw a drop in cutscenes, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown on Xbox Series X is still prevalent in the area due to having an edge of almost 10 more FPS than PS5 every time, while PS5 performance was exacerbated further here, dropping to 83 FPS.
What this means is it’s high time for Sony to release the PS5 Pro, which will be more powerful and can compete with Series X or maybe even better.
However, the differences in the performances are good on paper but have no significance in reality because a display that supports 4K 120 fps will have a VRR in it, which masks the difference and makes the game smooth on both consoles without any major fps drop.

Nevertheless, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is a worthy title to be visited in 2024 as the game has rated above average titles like Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and is completely justifiable with the Metroidvania genre.
