There’s a lot going on in an open world, and that means that the consoles that render  these experiences can’t always keep up. This results in poor frame rates which often make it much more difficult to get around the world, especially if there is a lot of action like in Just Cause 3. Every explosion on consoles would cause the game to chug, looking more like a slideshow than an epic adventure, or a game like Fallout 4 which initially had a ton of frame rate issues on both the PS4 and Xbox One.
