Or is it just one of Phil's balls in my throat?
That is strange, I believe that Re:Engine worked worse on X1X? Or even on RE: 8 for that matter....
All the RE engine Resident Evil games, including RE Village, have ran better on SX compared to PS5 by a little margin.
Village's non RT mode is locked 100% on both and the RT mode performs a bit better on Xbox, via VG Tech:
