Let's face it: the big question regarding Fallout 4 right now isn't whether it'll be a good game - it's whether it'll actually run well on the PlayStation 4. Bethesda's open world titles have a history of bad performance on PlayStation, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 3 both launching in shamefully shoddy condition on Sony's last-gen console. Of course, the company's newest machine is much more powerful, so with any luck, Fallout 4's development has been a smooth and easy process.
Having said that, fears will undoubtedly remain until we're all playing the post-apocalyptic release for ourselves, but that hasn't stopped Bethesda's VP of marketing, Pete Hines, from commenting on the PS4 version of the game. When asked if he was aware of any performance issues - most notably frame rate dips - Hines replied by saying that the title runs at a "solid 30 FPS".
"I play it all the time. I think you'll be pleased," he added on Twitter. Now obviously, Hines isn't going to say that the game suffers on Sony's platform, but the statement should provide some amount of comfort to rightfully concerned fans - at least for the time being.
