Here's how The Division looks on PS4 and Xbox One, side by side

Xbox One players will get a 30-day head start on The Division's first two DLC expansions, but it looks like that advantage doesn't extend to in-game oomph. Video game tech experts Digital Foundry analyzed footage from both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game and found that the latter console has a slight performance advantage.

According to DF's analysis, the most noticeable drawbacks to the Xbox One version are mild resolution scaling and occasional frame rate stutters in cutscenes, or when moving from one area to another. So if you have both systems and were wondering if a massive performance difference would make your The Division purchase decision easier… sorry about that. You'll just have to weigh the value of minor frame rate and resolution advantages against getting some early DLC. Whichever one you pick, you'd better not cut in line.
