Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5 is a choice between 4K and 60fps or ray-tracing

Another PS5 game has revealed that you’ll have to choose between the best graphics and high performance, even with first party games.

4K and 60fps will be possible in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales but it’s only an option, implying that the default is better graphics with more advanced techniques like ray-tracing.

Frustratingly, developer Insomniac hasn’t confirmed what the other options are, with the tweet below being their only official comment on the situation.

30fps (the same as the first Spider-Man game) was thought to be the standard for all Sony first party games on PlayStation 5, including Horizon Forbidden West and Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, but this is the second Sony game to mention a performance mode, after remake Demon’s Souls.

Performance modes are already a feature of some PlayStation 4 games and the one for Demon’s Souls seems to be a choice between higher resolution and frame rate versus ray-tracing and other advanced effects.

Although it’s nice to have the option it would’ve been even nicer if the new console was capable of everything at once, but that’s clearly not the case.

Multiformat game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also seems to have a similar limitation, although in its defence it is a cross-generational title and not next gen-only.

Microsoft has claimed that 60fps will be standard on Xbox Series X but how true that will be for anything other than first party games remains to be seen.

As far as the PlayStation 5 is concerned though it seems as if you’re always going to be stuck with a choice between the best visuals possible and the best performance.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the most high profile launch title for the PlayStation 5 but it’s not Spider-Man 2. Instead it’s a shorter, standalone expansion in the style of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
