Final Fantasy XV PS4 Pro Version Doesn’t Hit 60fps With the New Patch, Says Digital Foundry

February 20, 2017Written by Zarmena Khan

Final Fantasy XV just received patch 1.05, with the promise of offering up to 60fps on the PlayStation 4 Pro. As with all major releases, Digital Foundry has put the game to test post-patch and, unfortunately, the results are a bit of a let down.

We’ll get straight to the point – the outlet has noted that Final Fantasy XV doesn’t hit 60fps and instead, runs between 30-50fps. Additionally, it puts the PS4 Pro version behind the standard versions. You can watch the analysis in the video above.

In case you prefer a write-up, here’s a snippet from Digital Foundry’s detailed analysis, the full version of which you can find via the source link.

At this point, both the Xbox One and standard PlayStation 4 now provide a smoother experience. PS4 still exhibits minor frame-pacing issues but the problem is less pronounced than the Pro’s flagship high mode. Xbox One uses an adaptive v-sync solution that produces completely smooth frame-pacing throughout, leading to a stable experience. There is additional slowdown on Xbox One and a lower resolution overall, but at this point, Microsoft’s system still provides the most consistent frame-rate.

Unfortunately, as it stands, the PS4 Pro is no longer our recommended way to play Final Fantasy 15. If you’re looking for the most consistent experience, Xbox One and the standard PlayStation 4 are your best bets for now. Patch 1.05 for PlayStation 4 Pro is one update that we wish we could uninstall.

If any of our readers have already downloaded the patch for their PS4 Pro, let us know what you think.
