At the start of the console generation of Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, expectations were underwhelming in regards to Xbox-marketed releases. Titles such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Dirt 5, for instance, performed worse on Microsoft’s system compared to Sony’s machine. However, the Xbox company did issue that an update would come to address the issues which later resolved the setback.

As time quickly progressed, Microsoft elsewhere began to overtake the number of better performing games as it was revealed that Call of Duty: Warzone received a Xbox Series X enhancement, but not PlayStation. While uncertain as to why, it was later clarified by Rocket League studio, Psyonix. The developer pressed that games require a port more than a simple conversion as you find on Xbox.

Now nearly half a year in since the release of both systems, Xbox Series X sits at virtually a 3:1 lead to PlayStation 5 in 120 frames per second-supported games. Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry counts 12 for PS5 while XSX sits at 34 games in total. You can read the list below:

However, while this is a list counted for the “current” number of games, this can certainly alter in the coming months. While variable refresh rate (VRR) is absent on PlayStation 5, the feature is due to arrive this summer. In a report from Bloomberg, the publications pens that Sony Interactive Entertainment is to welcome VRR in a update in the coming months.

Noted, this list is missing a new addition revealed on Tuesday – Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Developer Rebellion announced that the Xbox Series X version of the game that is expecting an upgrade on April 8 is to welcome a ‘Performance’ mode that enables 1080p and performing at 120 frames per second.
