Hitman III is here, having launched for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, Switch, Stadia, and PC. That’s a lot of options and you may be wondering which version is right for you. Well, if loading times are a big part of your decision-making process, then you’ve come to the right place.

In the video above, we test the loading times for Hitman III on five different consoles. Apologies if you were considering buying the game for Switch, Stadia, or PC–this is a PlayStation vs. Xbox video.

For PlayStation owners, we compare the loading speeds between the standard PS4 and PS5. Xbox owners can skip ahead to when we put the Xbox One S up against both the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. And if you happen to own both of the current gen consoles, we have a PS5 vs. Xbox Series X comparison to round things out.

The exact time stamps are listed below if you’re looking for a specific comparison.
