Interesting changes. Why does XSX have a "performance mode" but not Playstation?
Why has Dynamic resolution been disabled for Playstation?
Is the FPS not increased to 60 for the XSX normal mode?
Does the performance mode not have post processing?

Interesting.. I wonder why there is so much difference in approach between both versions.

When these patches happen developers seem to have an edge with Xbox given how it handles BC. We've seen this before.

Curious why the Series S only has a 60 fps mode, which is probably dynamic resolution of 720p-1080p. Seems like it should have a ~1440p/30 fps mode as well. Either way, a much needed patch for Series S given this game struggled on a base Xbox One.
