Video: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice On Nintendo Switch Vs. PlayStation 4

One of the big third party titles arriving on the Nintendo Switch soon is the critically acclaimed Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice from Ninja Theory. The game is currently available on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 and YouTube channel Contra Network has produced a comparison video between the Nintendo Switch version of the dark game vs. the PlayStation 4 version. As you can see from the video down below, the Nintendo Switch version of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice holds up pretty well. The game is out on the Switch on 11th April, which is tomorrow!

  1. That’s a pretty good comparison. I didnt expect the Switch version to look like that to the PS4 version. So how is it that Nintendo makes a console efficient like that but without massive raw power?

    1. It’s isn’t 4k as ps and Xbox have almost no games that actually use 4k. So to make the game look that good isn’t as hard as most would think.

      1. PS4 doesn’t have 4K. PS4 Pro does.
        But this is a comparison to the PS4 version. And the PS4 (without Pro) is still a massive device. It’s huge, it’s still pretty powerful compared to the Switch and it drains a lot more energy.

      2. The Power gap between PS4 and Switch is sort of like PS2 and the GameCube and then some… So the Switch is able to handle toned down versions of PS4 games

    1. Not every game is made on Unreal Engine 4, a very good multiplatform game engine. Most other company’s don’t have the resources to downgrade their games to run at a level the Switch can handle. And then other games with proprietary game engines have very complex physics or immense animations that simply cannot be ported over the Switch without having to do massive amount of engine and game revamping.

      Its easy to take an Unreal Engine 4 game, dumb down the texture quality and resolution and get it running on Switch in some even if it isn’t particularly smooth.
