Bethesda’s Pete Hines Reacts To Fallout 4 PS4/XO Performance Reports

Posted 12 months ago

Over the past few days, users have been reporting serious Fallout 4 performance issues on PS4 & Xbox One. Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines has now taken to Twitter to react to these reports.

Not only random users have been reporting performance issues, Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry also reports apparent framerate drops. The Xbox One version of the game even drops to 0 frames per second on some occasions. The PS4 version also experiences considerable framerate drops, but at least doesn’t drop below 20 frames per second. Back in October though, Hines took to twitter to reassure fans that the game has a solid performance at 30 frames per second.

Although drops to 20 frames per second, and even 0 frames, don’t sound that solid, Hines keeps pointing out that the game runs well on PS4. Interestingly enough, he doesn’t mention the Xbox One version in his tweet.

According Hines, he didn’t encounter framerate drops on PS4. Again the Xbox One version is left out of the picture.


Following Hines’ tweets, the vice president got presented with Eurogamer’s performance article, after which Bethesda’s vice president responded that he merely shared his own experience with the game.

Taking it further, Hines was linked a YouTube video. Hines asked, whether the tweeter had even watched the video.

Last week, Hines also took to twitter to express his thoughts on the massive amount of Fallout 4 leaks. Bethesda’s vice president stated to be “upset”, and added that it felt like getting Christmas presents opened in November.
