Input lag for MultiVersus on the PlayStation 5 has been tested to be shockingly low

MultiVersus recently became playable for everyone via its Open Beta. The characters currently available are Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Arya Stark, Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Garnet, Steven Universe, Shaggy, Velma, Tom & Jerry, the Iron Giant, and LeBron James. The MultiVersus Open Beta can be accessed on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox X/S and PC.

Over the lifespan of the PlayStation 5 so far, we’ve seen Sony’s latest console suffer from ridiculous input lag, which isn’t really ideal for playing fighting games. Oddly enough, the PlayStation 5 often has more input lag than even the PlayStation 4. Nigel “Noodalls” Woodallan input latency tester within the fighting game community, recently published his results for latency testing of MultiVersus on the PlayStation 5, and the results were very interesting.

According to Noodalls, MultiVersus on the PlayStation 5 averaged around 31.47 ms of input lag. This was apparently tested 65 times with 1080 resolution.

Of course, input latency is usually not consistent. During his 65 tests, Noodalls was able to achieve a minimum of 23.17 ms and a maximum of 39.43 ms. In fact, there is a range of about 16.26 ms in these tests.

For comparison, a frame in a game running at 60 frames per second is measured at around 16.667 ms. Simply put, MultiVersus on the PlayStation 5 has an input lag of around two frames, which is extremely low.

In comparison, the latency of MultiVersus on the PlayStation 5 is significantly lower than the PlayStation 5 emulating the PlayStation 4 version of MultiVersus and the Xbox Series X/S versions of MultiVersus. No measurements of the PC version of MultiVersus have been published at this time, although this version is said to have even less input lag than the PlayStation 5.
