PlayStation 4 Pro Officially Announced

PlayStation 4 Pro Officially Announced

Sony's PlayStation Meeting just ended and as expected, a newer PS4 was revealed. The long rumored Neo was officially shown off as the PlayStation 4 Pro. 

The box is more powerful than the previous PS4 and is designed to exist alongside the old one, for gamers looking for a little extra power. It supports HDR and 4K, however, the Pro will not support 4K Blu-Ray. This is strange considering that some services, including YouTube and Netflix, will launch new apps for the Pro that will support 4K video. 

The box looks like a PS4 and a half, and will include the newly designed Dualshock 4 controller. A 1TB hard drive is now the standard for PlayStation devices, so consumers will get a lot of value for the $400 asking price. 

A handful of both existing and upcoming games were shown off running on the PS4 Pro, and as someone who was watching on a computer at home, it was difficult to see a drastic difference. It is important to note that without a 4K or HDR compatible television, some of the Pro's added features will be virtually useless. 

The PlayStation 4 Pro will launch on November 10 for $400. Pre-orders are now available through most major retailers. Stay tuned for more information.
