Financially speaking, Dishonored: Definitive Edition is a steal, giving PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners a bundle including Arkane's stealth-action game and all its DLC for a cool $40 — or $20 if you own a digital copy of the game on a last-gen console. But how has the title changed graphically in its current-gen transition?

We checked out the original Xbox 360 version of Dishonored alongside its PlayStation 4 Definitive counterpart, and the results are mixed. Textures are certainly improved, and the game looks much sharper than it did in the original console release, but framerate hasn't budged, and is still locked at 30 FPS. Performance-wise, it feels like a small step down from the game's PC version, though a few new features can be found in Definitive Edition — on PS4, for instance, the game's speaking "Heart" talks to the player through the controller's speaker.
