Has anyone tried the game again on the standard PS4 using the latest patch?

I'd like to know what the performance is like now.

@Gatygun: it runs okay on PC. Just not on consoles

@Gatygun: game runs perfect on my PC. The problem is the console cpus are too slow for all the physics that goes on in control.

The DF video showed an outrageous 11 fps at one point, 11 fps!!!!

Either that's seriously un-optimied or Control is too much for base consoles!

Same for my PC as well. But with the latest Nvidia Drivers, (436.30 September 10th) it did improve Control's performance and made the game even more impressive. Just started replaying Control yesterday and the game runs even more better and it runs okay before the latest drivers update. It's the original current-gen consoles that's the problem making Control unplayable and it fairs okayish with PS4 Pro & Xbox One X latest hardware but this isn't saying much.

@davillain-: I think even the pro and the one x struggle a little with this game. It just demands a lot from the cpu. It will be interesting if this game is ported to the next gen consoles which should have much better hardware to see if performance really improves.

Maybe it's poorly optimized on consoles or maybe Control is to demanding for their tablet CPUs. The game runs fine on my pc with a five year old cpu, stable 60 fps at 1080p with all the settings cranked up except ray-tracing. An i7 4790K @4.7 GHz coupled with a RTX 2070 OC.
