Surely you’ll now be aware of the announcement of the PlayStation Pro. Cutting past all the jargon and marketing, you’ll surely just want to know, what it does, when it’ll be released, what the specifications are and a few other things? Right? Well fear no more. Below are the frequently asked questions and answers that have been presented to Sony.
What is PS4 Pro?
PS4 Pro is a high-end version of PS4 that is capable of outputting 4K graphics, HDR support, smoother and more stable framerates, and 4K video streaming. Upon its launch, PS4 Pro will make supported PS4 games look better and run more smoothly, while giving developers an upgraded toolset to create even richer, more detailed game worlds. How these powerful new tools are used is up to individual developers and the experience they are creating. You may have seen some of these examples during PlayStation Meeting 2016.
It’s important to note that PS4 Pro is not another generation of console. It won’t make your current PS4 games obsolete, and it won’t split the PS4 player base. PS4 Pro is very much a part of the PS4 family.
