Yakuza: Like a Dragon runs at 900p 60FPS on Xbox Series S

As part of a recent Xbox Series X/S live stream, it was confirmed that the Xbox Series X release of Yakuza: Like a Dragon would run at 1440p with a 60 FPS target and feature a higher resolution 4K 30 FPS mode for those who enjoy higher pixel counts. 

As part of this stream, it was also confirmed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon would also operate at 1440p on Xbox Series S when using the game's high-resolution mode, but target a lower resolution of 900p when targeting a smooth 60 FPS framerate. That's right, 900p on an Xbox Series S. 

With the game's combat moving toa turn-based system, Yakuza: Like A Dragon's gameplay benefits a lot less from smooth 60 FPS framerates than older Yakuza titles. Even so, a lot of gamers are going to be disappointed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon's performance on Xbox Series S.

Yakuza's Dragon Engine is incredibly demanding, even on PC. Yakuza: Like a Dragon's original Japanese PlayStation 4 release runs at 900p 30 FPS, while the game's PlayStation 4 Pro version targets 1080p 30 FPS. It is also worth noting that Yakuza: Like a Dragon was designed for PlayStation 4, and therefore doesn't take full advantage of the Xbox Series X/S' hardware.

While some will see Yakuza: Like a Dragon's 900p 60 FPS mode on Xbox Series S as a disappointment, it must be noted that last-generation systems cannot run the game at framerates over 30 FPS. If anything, delivering a 60 FPS mode is a win for Xbox Series X/S, even if it runs at a lower than desired resolution. 

Yakuza: Like a Dragon runs at 900p 60FPS on Xbox Series S  

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is due to release on PC, Xbox One PS4, and Xbox Series X/S on November 10th. Yakuza: Like a Dragon will release on PlayStation 5 on March 2nd 2021.

I know it's the cheaper model and all but it's 2020, I feel like 1080p should be the minimum resolution for a new console.Quote

The XSS costs more than a XoX and offers the same performance. 900p anno 2020 is ridiculous and anyone defending this garbage should really have their credibility questioned as it's apologetic to MS who has recently invested billions into marketing the Xbox brand. Shame on Mark.Quote

Yeah no...

The difference between the Xbox Series S and Xbox One X is huge.

The CPU alone in the Xbox Series S, Same exact CPU inside the Series X, Is a monumental upgrade over the extremely underpowered highly anaemic Jaguar based CPU inside the Xbox One X which was underpowered before it even launched.

The GPU inside the Xbox Series S although it is cut down from what is inside the Series X is comparable to the Xbox One X's GPU if it was running at around the 8TFLOP mark, That's not counting the RT capabilities, Newer GDDR6, Higher bandwidth etc...

Then there's the newer storage system the Xbox Series S and X are using which is an order of magnitude faster than what was inside the Xbox One X.

This coming gen is one of the biggest leaps in performance we've had in a very long time, The reason for the low performance in this title will likely be down to optimisation.Quote
