Watch: How does Overwatch play on consoles?

Hands-on with the Xbox One and PS4 versions.

We've seen plenty of Overwatch on the PC - thanks to the ongoing beta - but Blizzard's class-based shooter is also set to launch on both the PS4 and Xbox One in just under two months. So how exactly do those console versions compare?

I had some hands-on time with the PS4 and Xbox One versions last week and came away mostly impressed with what I played. The resolution varies, but importantly, the framerate doesn't. As far as I could tell, they both maintain a consistent 60FPS, which proves a real necessity in a game like this.

Take a look at the video below to see some of the first console gameplay, along with more detailed impressions and an interview with Overwatch game director, Jeff Kaplan.
