I thought it might be beneficial to create fast, easy-to-use lists comparing all PS4 Pro and standard PS4 modes at a glance. The initial lists cover 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. Both regular and VR games are listed (with some titles appearing as both). Following these, I've listed unpatched games which are enhanced by the Boost Mode available in new firmware.

The data here is either compiled from other sources, or based on my own analysis of screenshots and video. Though this thread is intended to be thorough, 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


  • Most games with high-res mode(s) 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 mode(s) 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. For framerates, 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; if you're unclear on any just post a question in the thread and I'll attempt to answer.

  • CBR is a very complex process, so I've created a separate thread containing an explanation. When reading over that thread, please bear in mind that I may have made mistakes. Let me know if there's anything that could be clearer.

  • Games are listed in alphabetical order by title. I use official names, so it may take a moment to find them (Rise of the Tomb Raider versus Tomb Raider, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor versus Shadow of Mordor, etc.) For this reason, as well as the ever-expanding nature of this list, it might be necessary to automatedly search. The graphic format means a specific method has to be used. Please see this linked post for instructions on how to search game titles. Note that Boost Mode games are a separate post, so have to be searched independently.

  • Boost Mode opens a portion of the Pro's extra power to all games. Thus, older games without patches may still see upgrades. Boost Mode does not affect games with official Pro support, as they're already designed to utilize the new hardware. Typical benefits for Boosted games are stabilized framerate, or dynamic resolution averaging higher levels. Please keep in mind that Boost Mode improvements are too numerous for me to research as thoroughly as I do official enhancements. So the details in that list are more tentative and subject to error (which is why I've given it a different color scheme.)

  • Yes, loading times are improved over standard PS4 hardware. A better drive interface means all games see shorter load times, even if they don't have official support, and even if Boost Mode is turned off. Boosted games, or ones with official support, can have further load time reductions on top of the universal improvement. Because games and hard drives vary, so does the size of the benefits. Along with lack of extensive testing, this is why shortened loading times aren't explicitly stated below. But they are present in almost every game listed.

  • Games that support HDR have it noted alongside the listed resolution. Both PS4 models can output HDR, as shown in the lists. However, only a very few 1080p displays—like Sony's 2017 TV models—can show the effect. Most compatible screens are 4K. A short list of all titles with HDR support can be found in the Statistics section below, in Table 1.

  • The majority of games have better framerates on Pro versus standard PS4, but very few raise the target framerate by 30fps. The overall graphical power difference, as well as the presence of bottlenecks not addressed by the new hardware, make such a change in performance rare. However, there are some games that do this, either across the board or in specific modes (including VR). A short list of these titles can be found in the Statistics section below, in Table 2.

  • Games are only included in the main lists if I can find proof of specific improvements. That includes analysis by me, or by others across the web. Developers often announce Pro support without any details, and it's possible for enhancement plans to change or be delayed. Or, some games may actually be improved but evidence isn't easy to obtain. (Framerate improvements are particularly hard to nail down.) In the Statistics section below, Table 3 lists titles that have been claimed, but not yet analyzed due to lack of material. If you post links or screenshots I'll try to check them. Table 4 lists titles that have been claimed and analyzed, but for which I found no improvements. Since I could be mistaken, please feel free to post contrary impressions and analysis, including your own.

  • The games that Boost Mode affects were not explicitly designed to run on the new hardware. Therefore, upgrades are more minor than with official support, and limited to the parameters of the standard PS4 version. So for example, resolutions don't rise above their original targets, as is usually the case with official support. Also, games may simply not be visibly affected at all. In rare cases, problems with framerate, graphics, game logic, or program stability could even be introduced. Games with no benefits are listed in the Statistics section below, in Table 5. Games with reports of errors are listed in Table 6. As with all Boost Mode info, details may be inaccurate, and more impressions and screenshots would be appreciated!

  • Some entries on this list are incomplete, and the whole thing is necessarily a work in progress. (The VR section is especially spotty. Since the social screen output isn't necessarily related to the headset view, they often can't be easily analyzed.) If you can supply material on unlisted games yourself, or know where they're up elsewhere, please post the links! When posting in this thread, screenshots should be at 4K size to allow pixel counting (even if the game is running at 1080p). Thanks!



Number of listed games with official enhancements: 145
Number of listed games with VR enhancements: 50
Number of listed games with Boost Mode enhancements: 177

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.

All those "unavailable for 1080p displays"... It's not exactly what I was hoping for as a 1080p user and while I want to upgrade, I'm finding it difficult to justify at this stage.

Thank goodness for the improved draw distance in farming simulator though.

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. ;)

Still broken, as far as I know.

Great list. I was half expecting this topic to be a question for others to answer. Looking forward to TLG on Christmas :)

Ask me about the moon landing or the temperature at which jet fuel burns. You may be surprised at what you learn.

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.
