Payday 2 Compared On Switch, PS4 And Xbox 360

Now that Payday 2 is out on the Nintendo Switch you can don your mask and commit daring heists while riding the bus to work. Given the game’s multiplayer focus you’ll probably spend more time playing it somewhere with a stable internet connection. That may not be your home but will almost definitely not be on the bus to work.

Still, Payday 2 has been out for almost five years and is already available on every other home console (and PC). Anyone looking to pull the trigger on this version of the game could use some help researching the differences between version.

Youtube channel GameXplain has the goods with a comparison video showing the differences between the Switch, PS4 and Xbox 360 versions of Payday 2.

Most notable is the difference in loading times between versions. The PS4 version of the game took 33.13 seconds to load a mission, likely due to what GameXplain described as “double-loading”, while the Switch loaded the same mission in a much snappier 22.09s with the 360 taking 27.06 seconds.

Both the Switch and PS4 versions had smoother visuals than the 360 version.

Considering the missing content and lack of voice chat, anyone looking for the best way to stick up a bank should stick to the PC version of Payday 2.
