GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One

As usual, we do our best to show you as many different versions of a game as we can and it is now time to see what the PS4 version of Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition has in store for you. From what we've seen, performance is superior to what we experienced on Xbox One, especially frame rate wise. There are still some slowdowns but overall the game looks smoother on Sony's console. Aliasing is still there, but textures and resolution have been much improved since the Xbox 360 and PS3 era. That being said, the original PC version from two years ago runs better than either next gen ports.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition sometimes feels a bit closer to a disguised GOTY edition than a true "HD" remake as this Xbox One version is still way behind the original Sleeping Dogs on PC. Frame rate is a bit choppy as soon as you take a vehicle, there's a bit too much aliasing to be seen, so basically the major difference with the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions is the resolution. Gameplay mechanics have not been tweaked either, which is bad news when it comes to driving, but thankfully, the rest of the game was solid and still is today. If you have never played Sleeping Dogs before, this is definitely the version to go for as it includes all the game's DLC (even though the two additional campaigns aren't that memorable). If you have, the very few visual differences probably won't make it worth your while.
