Second Son performance on the PS4 Pro is pretty awful :/

5 replies 837 views Edited Dec 10, 2016
I have been playing the game for the last week, going back and forth between higher resolution and better frame rate, locking and unlocking the framerates, and the performance is just bad. Even with the better framerate option and locked at 30fps, I still get stutters and drops below 30fps. At higher resolution and locked at 30fps, the performance at certain times is downright terrible! Drops well below 30fps happen frequently when a lot is going on in the game, making it a jarring mess. The latest 1.07 patch seemed to help slightly, but I don't understand why the performance is so bad :/. This seems unacceptable considering how much better the performance is suppose to be on the Pro.

So you're telling me I can't play this at 60fps if I had a pro?

The game can hit 60fps, but it is not consistent. There is frequent stuttering and it often dips to 30. At least, that was my experience.

Are you playing the digital copy or the disc?

Really? That's strange. I'm playing it on my Slim, first time yesterday, was surprised to see options to unlock framerate. Figured that was *only* for the Pro. Capped or uncapped framerate, it's been smooth so far. Occasionally a stutter that lasts barely a second before its over, but that rarely happens.

That's been my experience with the game too. It's been a very loing time since I played it, probably back in the day on my old 1000 series. That said I had it on 60fps unlocked and yeah most of the time the frame rate was good. Only dropped during the more intense sequences with lots of effects and explosions.

 

I'll admit, it's past the point where I would ever reinstall SS again since I got platinum on SS and FL, but I kind of miss the gameplay! The powers were really cool.
