PS4 Pro

Sony Interactive Entertainment officially announced PlayStation 4 Pro, its upgraded PlayStation 4 previously known by the code-name “Neo,” during PlayStation Meeting 2016 in New York City. It will launch worldwide on November 10 for $399 / €399 / £349 / ¥44,980.

PlayStation 4 Pro delivers improved image processing capability and support for 4K quality images. By boosting the performance and capability of the architecture through the CPU and GPU, the platform allows games to render at far more detail and visual precision.

Users with 4K TVs will be able to enjoy PlayStation 4 titles at higher quality, such as at 4K resolution and faster frame rates. It also supports 4K video playback for streaming video (but not Blu-ray discs). New Netflix and YouTube applications that support 4K video content will be available for PlayStation 4 Pro at launch.

HDTV owners will be able to enjoy enhanced gameplay experiences, with PlayStation 4 Pro delivering 1080p resolution for all PlayStation 4 games and higher, or higher or more stable frame rates for supported titles.

All PlayStation 4 models, both standard and Pro, will be upgraded next week via a firmware update to support HDR imaging technology, which enables the reproduction of brightness and darkness while realizing a much wider range of colors.

Sony clarified that PlayStation 4 will remain a single, unified platform. All PlayStation 4 games will work across both the standard and Pro models.

The following titles have been confirmed to support the new capabilities of PlayStation 4 Pro:

Many of these are previously released games. PlayStation 4 Pro patches are in the works for over a dozen first-party titles, as well as “quite a few” from third-party partners. Sony will announce more details about PlayStation 4 Pro’s lineup of games from third-party developers and publishers closer to launch.
