Of course, we have to remember that we are at the moment before the first technical test of Battlefield 2042 and that the final version will be far from the one we have now. That said, it’s also worth remembering that the console gaming experience is always the same, but the PC experience varies greatly depending on the hardware you have. Also, as a reminder, it must be said that the final version of Battlefield 2042 will be compatible with NVIDIA DLSS Y NVIDIA Reflex on PC.
Is it possible that Battlefield 2042 works better on consoles than it does on PC?

The first technical test of Battlefield 2042 was supposed to take place on PlayStation 5 consoles as well, but in the end a glitch prevented PS5 users from testing the game over the weekend. Battlefield 2042 will be playable again before the launch on October 22 in the month of September, as a new open Beta phase is planned in which all users will have access in principle.
But for the moment and only with the first impressions of the users who have been able to test the game in the technical test, we can already get an idea of what we can expect from this title. For now we have already commented that the well-known Tom Henderson has stated that the game works much more fluidly on Xbox Series X than on PC, but we have also mentioned that the PC experience, regardless of who it weighs, depends a lot on the hardware .
That said, we don’t know which PC platform this person used to test Battlefield 2042, but obviously there is a possibility that they didn’t have a powerful enough graphics card to move the game decently, or maybe they didn’t even use a GPU. from NVIDIA to be able to enjoy DLSS or Reflex technologies, which are already known to be present in the future PC version of the game.
In other words, is it possible that a game works better on console than on PC? Of course. To begin with, because consoles have fixed hardware and video game developers can optimize their operation to get the most out of the hardware, while on PC this does not happen (at most, we can find games optimized for certain generations of graphics cards).
But, apart from this, we must also take into account two things: on the one hand, we do not know the hardware used on PC by this user so that he can affirm that the Xbox version works more fluid, and on the other hand, because the PC version of this NVIDIA DLSS ‘first technical test lacked for the time being, something that will certainly have affected its performance (at least in comparison).
Ultimately, yes it is possible that a game works better on consoles than on PC thanks to optimization (and let’s not talk about the «ports), but it would be rare as long as the PC we are talking about has the adequate power to be able to enjoy of the game in conditions.
