INTRODUCTION

Below are lists comparing PS4 Pro and standard PS4 modes at a glance. The post after this one covers games which have been programmed specifically to take advantage of the new hardware, whether released after PS4 Pro with support built in, or released earlier and patched down the line. The third post covers VR games with enhancements (some titles appear again here). The fourth post lists unpatched games which are enhanced by the Boost Mode available from Pro's console settings.

Code:

As of October 16, 2017 these lists are not being updated on NeoGAF.
More recent updates may be available elsewhere on the web in the future. (They would be posted under my GAF username.)

Though this thread is intended to be thorough for the time it covers, it's also succinct. For more details regarding specific titles, these external resources may be helpful:

PlayStation blog announcement
Digital Foundry analysis tracker
NXGamer analysis tracker
Eurogamer PS4 Pro summary
Gamespot list of announcements
IGN list
List of VR games from Fgoat on Reddit
Digital Foundry selects best upgrades of certain types

Please note that none of the lists are exhaustive, due to the difficulty of finding public information regarding Pro enhancements. That said, the official support and VR lists should be fairly complete through 10/16/2017. The Boost Mode list on the other hand is assuredly missing many hundreds of titles, since that feature should apply to most PS4 games.


NOTES ABOUT LIST SYMBOLS AND TEXT

Most games with high-res modes automatically downsample when played on a 1080p display. Pro modes that do not downsample, and are only usable on a 4K display, are marked by a red X. For those games, the modes marked with an orange dot are obligatory on 1080p displays. Players with 4K screens can force them with OS-level settings, but not from in the game.

Effects, resolution, and framerate in Pro modes are color coded versus standard PS4. White indicates essentially no change. Red is worse, yellow is arguably better or worse depending on personal preference, and green is definitely better. Sometimes the exact same text might be listed, but the block colored in anyway. This means both modes have the same target, but Pro meets the target more often (green) or less often (red).

Games using CBR have their resolutions listed as e.g. 1800c or 2160c. Standard rendering is listed as e.g. 1800p or 2160p. (Note that CBR is not upscaling. Upscaling to 4K is still necessary if the checkerboard is below 2160c.) There are also other methods, which use appropriate abbreviations. Members in the thread should be able to clarify if you post questions.

Games that support HDR are tagged to the right of their title bar in the list. Both PS4 models can output HDR. However, only a very few 1080p displays—like Sony's 2017 TV models—can show the effect. A 4K display is therefore usually needed to see HDR, even if the attached console is a standard PS4. Only one game, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, is known to have HDR but no official Pro support.


SEARCHING THE LISTS

Games are listed in alphabetical order by title. I use official names, so it may take a moment to find them (Tom Clancy's The Division versus The Division, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor versus Shadow of Mordor, etc.) The full titles of games from each list post are all included below. A text search should allow you to find any game, and see what title I list it under. Note that some games may appear in both official support and VR lists.


STATISTICS

Number of listed games with enhancements: 197
Number of listed games with VR enhancements: 59
Total number of games with official support: 239 (some are both regular and VR)
Number of listed games with Boost Mode benefits: 191
Total number of listed games: 430

Abzu, on a 1080p screen is supersampled and runs just like the base version, 40-50fps.


FIREWATCH:
PS Pro Customers with a 1080p Display: enhanced detail distance, smoother loads, and much higher quality shadows
PS Pro Customers with a 4K Display: the world is now rendered at WQHD (2560x1440p) and the UI renders at 4KUHD (3840×2160) and you will have enhanced level of detail of a standard PS4

Bookmarked! BTW, thank you very much for doing this, I hope you'll update it long enough! :)

Off-topic, Ratchet and Clank is $9.99 new at gamestop until 17th. Everyone should get the game, if for nothing else then just as a showpiece for the Pro. Game looks STUNNING.

For example for TLG you have to force the 1080p mode on a 4K display by going into the PS4 Pro settings and changing your output. Then you get a more stable frame rate. Could be the same for other games. Developers don't seem to be adding new menu options.

Great thread! Although I think it's missing a little.
For example doesn't R&C on PS4 Pro have better AA or something?

Also I thought Infamous SS had better shadows or more particle effects or something?

This thread made me a little more confident in buying just a regular PS4 this week. (Getting it brand new for 220$ and that's including tax as well)
As a 1080p user I think most of the upgrades might be not be worth the extra 200$, like PHYSX on nvidia GPUs maybe? :p

Return to Arkham was already there, and the VR mode of Trackmania. I've filled in the rest. Do you know what was improved on any of them, or can you provide screenshots?

Yes, but my understanding is the patch still hasn't showed up. Things like this are why I made this thread, and restricted entries to already-enhanced games.

That's a good point.

But, doesn't Rise of the Tomb Raider gave video options in the menu? I could be mistaken though.

It's 4 too many in my opinion. I was under the impression that 1080p users would get the benefits of downsampling in all titles that rendered above 1080p on the Pro, or would at least have the option of doing so. It doesn't make sense for me to buy something when I won't know if future titles I'm interested in (such as Horizon) will roadblock this feature of not. It simply shouldn't be allowed to happen and it doesn't make any sense as to why it is happening.

Check the screenshot comparison tool in their article. You can see that some textures are better on Pro 1080p mode (but not in high-res mode).

So XCOM 2 has finally been updated? Do you have any info on all these, like you did with Abzu? I'll add empty blocks if I have to, but I'd like this to be a real source of data, not just a fancified list.

As a fallen graphic designer (can no longer gain levels in this class), table view is unutterably ugly. Also, since the list is in alphabetical order I don't think search is much impacted.

The better AA Ratchet & Clank has is supersampling, meaning on 1080p screens it's rendered higher then scaled down, smoothing out jagged edges. Almost all Pro games do this.

As far as I can tell, higher resolution is also what makes more particles apparent in the Pro version of Infamous. There's just as many on a standard PS4, but the very small ones aren't as visible.

Most of the games with multiple Pro modes do give the option in-game. Only a few have to be forced through OS-level settings.

And for the vast majority of games, they do. Unfortunately, there's no way to guarantee developers won't mess things up. How do we know it's the developers' fault and not the hardware? For the same reason we know when a PC port is bad: the hardware has shown itself to be capable of plenty more performance, but strangely fails to show it in a specific title.

Patches may be coming, but of course aren't guaranteed, any more than the same level of performance is guaranteed for every game on specific PC hardware. I do see why you'd avoid buying a Pro or a PC for that reason. ;)

Sorry, I assumed XCOM 2 already has an update as it was included on the launch day list. I own Knack and Mafia III, so I'll attempt to do my own guesstimation on the resolution but that's about the best I can provide (nothing concrete online).

It's at odds with most comparison shots, and could potentially be an issue with streaming, occurring regardless of mode selected."

Yes, that one. Regardless of Digital Foundry's guess as to why the difference exists, it does. I also took their statement that it's "at odds with most comparison shots" to mean it's not at odds with all of them (and the same with "Textures are typically matched..."). So occasionally there's better textures on Pro at 1080p (regardless of why). When I update, I'll change the text to indicate this is only a few textures and nowhere near all, though.

Yeah, as far as I know XCOM 2 still isn't updated, despite being on that list.

For games you do have, you can post 4K screenshots. I can try pixel counting from those (or you can, using the method I described long ago in this thread).

I encourage anyone else to post what they have as well. I'll try to track down some more info tomorrow, and run an update pass on the list.

The fact ther needs to be a confusing chart is a reason why the Pro was a bad idea.

Farming Simulator got a patch?

I doubt very much I'll ever play that, but that's actually pretty cool.

How is it confusing?
