The PS4 Pro will be powered by AMD’s eight-core Jaguar processor in combination with an GPU based on AMD’s Radeon chipset running at 4.20 teraflops. The console has generated some buzz, both positive and negative for a number of reasons. This is not the same as the PlayStation 4 Pro. So let’s get started.
The PS4 Pro looks slightly different, with a three-tiered staircase thing going on. However, while the console may be more powerful, the device formerly known as PlayStation Neo is noticeably without a few upgrades many gamers assumed would come standard.
It was also announced at the press con that PlayStation 4 Pro will be launched on November 10 this year.
“Starting at £249, Xbox One S is the only console available today with built-in 4K Blu-ray – a value price compared to 4K Blu-ray players”.
He added that that Sony is adding high dynamic range support to all models of PS4, even systems dating back to 2013, as the company believes “the impact of HDR on gaming and entertainment is so promising”.
When asked about the HDR support, especially since not many HDR TVs are leaving shelves, Cerny said that HDR did have a long ways to go. Netflix original shows like “Narcos” and “Luke Cage” are getting 4K updates versions on the way to ring in the new app on PlayStation 4.
The company is expecting that the new PS4 and PS4 Pro will account for nearly half of their operating profit for the financial year through March 2017. The PlayStation VR headset will be launching during the middle of next month on October 13th and will be available to purchase for $400.
Some players also think that nerfing the PS4 Pro defeats the goal of getting the PS4 Pro.
Additionally, there is more good news on the horizon for Xbox One S owners and potential owners after the announcement of PlayStation 4 Pro.
