Sony has revealed a new PS4 Pro console that is said to be far more powerful than the PS4 base version. The announcement was made at the PlayStation meeting which took place yesterday, in New York.
The console was designed to complement the PS4 and it has the ‘4’ in its name to show that the two versions are related. The ‘Pro’ suggests that it’s meant for higher-end gamers.
According to Sony CEO Andrew House, the PS4 Pro will feature 4k and HDR support, as part of their policies to provide high fidelity visual experiences and he also took the opportunity to introduce Mark Cerny, the lead video architect at Sony.
The PS4 is confirmed to feature a 1TB hard drive, double GPU power and improved CPU clockspeed.
The 4k support was showcased at the event when Cerny ran a number of games on the PS4 Pro such as Spider Man, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and For Honor. The HDR support was showcased via the Days Gone game and according to Cerny, it showed a level of photorealism that has never been seen in a game up until now. Other games that were used to present the improved visual experience include Horizon: Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4, Infamous: Last Night and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.
Cerny also mentioned that several patches will be made to many Sony games in order to make them appropriate for the PS4 Pro console and that many other developers are working on patches that will improve their games and make them suitable for the upcoming console.
However, the new console is not the only announcement we heard at the event. Activision revealed that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and the Remastered Modern Warfare will support the PS4 Pro when it’s launched. After that, EA confirmed that Battlefield 1, FIFA 17 and Mass Effect: Andromeda will support the upcoming console.
The console is scheduled for release on the 10th of November 2016 and it’s priced at $399.
