Sony announces PlayStation 4 Pro with 4K HDR gaming for $399
Sony announced the PlayStation 4 Pro, a 4K, HDR-capable version of the PS4 – at an event today held at the PlayStation Theater in New York City.
PlayStation architect Mark Cerny said that PS4 Pro will support HDR (high dynamic range) technology, which will improve the visual quality of games.
Image quality is said to be improved because HDR allows for more colours on screen.
Cerny also said that users don’t need a 4K TV to experience the benefits of the PS4 Pro, because the console will recognise the quality of your TV.
While Sony didn’t elaborate or get specific the system’s hardware, it sounds like they’re not far off from those listed by Giant Bomb earlier this year.
PS4 Pro will also improve the PlayStation VR experience, according to Cerny. Developers will be able to increase the crispness of scenes, up the frame rate, and more. Netflix and YouTube are also developing new apps specifically for the PS4 Pro.
The hard disk drive capacity of the PS4 Pro is 1TB to accommodate more games, demos, download contents and favorite gameplay videos.
It launches November 10th, and it will cost $399.
Check out the video and the Screenshots:
“On stage, Cerny showed off actual 4K game footage from games like Spider-Man and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, not just 4K video running through the PS4 Pro. Cerny noted that the PS4 Pro was able to pull new detail out of the scenes from these games, even though they were developed for the original PS4. But he went on to say that select PS4 games will have improved graphics to take full advantage of the the PS4 Pro. Titles like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare: Remastered will be able to support PS4 Pro’s extra capabilities out of the box on day one, while Battlefield 1 and FIFA 16 will be supported later this year, and Mass Effect: Andromeda gaining support next year.”
