Image: Just Push Start

The PS4 Pro Boost Mode is currently in its beta stages and is available to the beta users of PS4’s upcoming firmware update 4.50. The Boost mode however has more adverse affects than positive till this point.

Some of the games are reported to have been affected by the PS4 Pro Boost Mode performance, which is expected to make its official debut in around two weeks. The main aim of the Boost Mode is to make older PS4 games run better without needing a developer-mandated patch.


We have prepared a list of the games which have been facing issues with the PS4 Pro Boost Mode. However, we should also keep in mind that only a particular amount of games have been tested till this point and the list is not that long too.


Make sure you play the following games on the base mode.

  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Batman: The Telltale Series
  • Dead Island
  • Dragon Quest Builders
  • God Eater Resurrection
  • Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
  • Shadow Complex
  • Trivial Pursuit Live!
  • Tembo the Badass Elephant
  • Slender: The Arrival
  • Grow Home
  • SOMA

Most of the games in the above list are reported for crashing and poor graphics while running on the PS4 Pro Boost Mode. We’ll update this list as we come across more games which performs badly while running on the Boost Mode.
