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.
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.
