However, PlayStation 4 Pro has finally been released and players wanted to give it a try, hoping to see a difference in terms of performance and graphics quality. Unfortunately, they were disappointed.

In fact, Skyrim: Special Edition frame-rate is worse on PlayStation 4 Pro than on the regular PS4.

It was Digital Foundry to talk about this question with one of their latest reports. According to them, the reason behind the frame-rate drop is apparently that the game is not entirely suited for 4K resolution, as running in “4K-mode” can cause the frame-rate to drop even over the standard edition of the game. These issues are at odds with Sony’s requirements for game porting to PS4 Pro, according to which the frame-rate must be higher or equal to the standard version of the game.

By the way, Skyrim: Special Edition is already out for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
