Bandai Namco's Tekken franchise has once again produced a title in "Tekken 7" which has enthralled players seeking a new competitive outlet. "Tekken 7" has already made a competitive splash, although part of that coverage has stemmed from a vocal minority.

Complaints about "Tekken 7" haven't been fully addressed as of yet, the tournament that produced them took place before the game even released. It appears that a recent report can offer a solution for tournament organizers while also helping more casual players choose their respective "Tekken 7" platforms.

Kotaku conducted reviews which suggested that the PlayStation 4, especially its Pro counterpart is visually superior to Microsoft's Xbox One console on a noticeable level. In fact, the Xbox One has featured massive cutbacks that significantly alter the way the console is able to process the resolution on "Tekken 7." This means that Sony's console is the better choice for gamers concerned with how "Tekken 7" will look on their television screen.

It is still early in "Tekken 7 "launch period, the report asserts that the Xbox One loads significantly slower. Xbox One loading maps almost twice as slow as the PlayStation 4, with the PS4 clocking in around 21 seconds while the Xbox One is closer to 40. This might not matter for tournament play, but those seconds add up for casual players looking to get in a handful of games whenever they have time, as noted by Euro Gamer.

Strangely enough, the Xbox One appears to be the superior choice for "Tekken 7" tournament play that can corroborate what players were complaining about at the pre-launch tournament last month. Many of "Tekken 7" new features rely on improved visuals, however, those could be an issue when it comes to input lag, the Xbox One is essentially one frame faster in terms of input that made a dramatic difference at the highest level of play.

For the record, "Tekken 7" is very playable on all of the platforms it has been launched on. However, it will be interesting to figure out the de facto tournament platform of choice once more analysis has been done on potential input lag spikes on the console variants. Meanwhile, "Tekken 7" is available now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
