Why is Resident Evil 7 so broken on some PS4 Pro hardware?

For most people, Resident Evil 7 has been a positive experience regardless of platform. On the PS4, it’s even better thanks to built-in PSVR support. Unfortunately, a small percentage of people running the game on the PS4 Pro are experiencing major graphical glitches. Even worse, neither Capcom nor Sony have been willing to step up to properly deal with this issue. By most estimates, Resident Evil 7 is a well-liked
