Thanks in advance.
Just to expand on this a bit, games need to be specifically patched to support the Pro. How the extra horsepower is used is really up to the individual developer and varies from game to game. With some games the difference can be pretty dramatic, with others not so much. Some of the tings possible with a Pro include
- bumping up framerates, going for native 90fps instead of 60fps interpolated to 120fps.
- implementing supersampling to improve the quality of textures.
- adding in additional particle effects and similar visual upgrades
- bump up the resolution to approach or reach PSVR's native 960x1080 threshold
Overall, I've found it to be an incremental but visible improvement that improves the overall experience when the hardware is used properly. As I am fond of saying, if you want the best possible PSVR experience, then you want to invest in a PS4 Pro.
