If you’ve bought PlayStation 4 Pro and paired it with a brand new ultra HD TV, the chances are that you’ll be looking for a range of games designed to get the most out of both of your new purchases. As we stated in our , the likes of Ratchet and Clank, Rise of the Tomb Raider and COD Infinite Warfare are must-play experiences, but just how many PS4 Pro titles manage to hit a native 4K with full-fat 60fps gameplay?
There’s no shortage of 4K games lists for PS4 Pro dotted across the internet, so over the last few weeks we spent our spare time getting hold of each and every game that purports to offer native ultra HD gaming, with an emphasis on targeting 60fps. Each title was put under the Digital Foundry microscope, with pixel-counts carried out to ensure that native resolution was indeed being delivered. Curiously, we discovered that quite a few titles said to be running at 4K were clearly and obviously not handing in anything like the required pixel-count, so we created a sub-category for these titles along with their actual native rendering resolutions.
In the final analysis, we were left with a mere ten titles that fulfilled the initial brief – handing in the combination of a locked 4K pixel count matched with 60fps gameplay. You can watch Dave Bierton and Tom Morgan sort the wheat from the chaff in the latest Digital Foundry videocast below, where the discussion is backed with native 4K footage for all titles captured.
