Sony have officially announced a brand new iteration of their PlayStation 4 console in the form of the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Revealed this evening at a conference held in New York, the PlayStation 4 Pro improves upon the original model released in 2013 with an upgraded graphics chip, processor and support for both 4k resolution and HDR.
The new console will feature a 1TB hard drive and will be compatible with all existing PlayStation 4 titles. Select games such as Shadow of Mordor and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will also receive patches in the coming months, allowing them to take full advantage of the system’s new features. Moving forward, all new games released for the PlayStation 4 will benefit from the Pro’s technical enhancements.
New games, such as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered, Battlefield 1 and Mass Effect Andromeda were all announced as working “out of the box” with the PS4:Pro from day one.
The console will also offer improvements to PlayStation VR (released next month) such as improved resolution and frame rates.
Lead system architect Mark Cerny was keen to stress that Sony’s aim is not to “blur the line” between console generations, but instead, “the vision is to take the PS4 experience to extraordinary new levels”.
The PlayStation 4 Pro will be released in the UK on November 10th for £349.
