The Last of Us Part I – PC vs PS5 vs PS3 Comparison Videos

While we wait for the next major PC update for The Last of Us Part I, we’ve decided to share two interesting comparison videos. The first video compares the PS5 version with the PC version. As for the second video, we get to see how the PS3 version, running on the RPCS3 emulator, stacks up against the PC version.

From what we can see, the PC version features better shadows and LOD settings than the PS5 version. Additionally, some textures appear to be sharper. However, the water effects are not as advanced as the ones found in the PS5 version. I don’t know if this is a bug, however, Naughty Dog should definitely look into this.

As for the second video, it’s really cool witnessing the PS3 version running at 4K. This video shows off the major lighting changes that the remake has. It also shows off the improved character models.

A couple of days ago, Naughty Dog released a hotfix for the PC version. However, that hotfix lacked the promised mouse camera fixes. So, it remains to be seen whether the Friday Update will include them.

Lastly, you can check out our PC Performance Analysis for this game. You can also find another article in which we ran the game on an Intel Core i9 9900K CPU.
