The PlayStation 4 Pro, previously codenamed the PS4 Neo, has been officially unveiled, but many people still have questions about it. Sony recently updated the PlayStation Blog with a PlayStation 4 Pro FAQ answering some of the most common questions fans have about it.
It covers basic questions, technical specifications, other 4K entertainment possibilities, and miscellaneous questions.
One important thing to take away from the FAQ is that the PS4 Pro will not support Ultra 4K Blu-ray Discs, although it supports upscaling of DVDs and Blu-ray discs. The Blu-ray drive is the same as that found in other PS4 models.
The FAQ also covers the advantages of streaming from a PS4 Pro. Due to its increased capabilities, you’ll be able to stream games (whether as a broadcast or for Remote Play and Share Play) at 1080p, although this will also depend on your Internet bandwidth. Higher quality screenshots can also be taken with the PS4 Pro.
On the technical side of things, it goes over the Premium HDMI cable, which you’ll want to use if you’re playing a PS4 Pro with a 4K TV. The advantage is that a Premium HDMI cable will allow you to display a 4K signal at 60 frames per second, while a regular HDMI cable will only be capable of 4K at 30 frames per second. A Premium HDMI cable will be included when you buy a PS4 Pro.
Overall, the FAQ is just a great summary of all the important information about the PS4 Pro: how it fits into the PS4 family and console generation, what benefits it provides both to players with 4K TVs and those without, how you can transfer your content from your basic PS4 to your PS4 Pro, and what the PS4 Pro can or cannot do.
Check out the full FAQ for answers to all your PS4 Pro questions. Afterwards, let us know in the comments if there are any concerns or questions you have about the PlayStation 4 Pro that have yet to be cleared up.
