Sniper Elite 3 on Xbox One vs. PS4 vs. PC

By Evan Narcisse on at

Sniper Elite 3 seems like a perfect summer-doldrums game, a guilty pleasure that will keep you occupied while not much else is on the horizon. Wondering which platform should you get it for? You should watch these comparison videos first. There is a clear loser.

One sequence from the stealthy WWII game gets captured on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in a crop of videos from Digital Foundry. In the cutscene and gameplay moments that follow, the PC version of Sniper Elite 3 handily outshines the others. No surprise there. There's really noticeable screen-tearing in the footage from the XB1, though, making it the underachiever of the three different versions. For what it's worth, Kotaku staffer Steve Marinconz says that he's seen some sluggishness while playing through a PS4 copy of the game. If you've got a hankering to shoot some Nazis in the face and have a choice of platform, the choice here seems pretty clear.
