Earlier yesterday during the PlayStation Meeting in New York, Sony announced PlayStation 4 Pro (previously known as PlayStation 4 Neo), which is an upgraded console with improved hardware designed to run games at 4K output and better VR support. It must be noted that the new console is not a next generation console and will sit alongside the PlayStation 4.
While revealing the long awaited console, also revealed the list of games that will have HDR and 4K support. The PlayStation 4 Pro will definitely run games at 1080p with better frame rates, but it won’t run multiplayer modes better at the 4K as compared with the standard PlayStation 4.
During the meeting, Naughty Dog’s lead programmer Christian Gyrling confirmed the news saying the Base PS4 and PS4 Pro will be running the games with same frame rates. He said;
But if you’re playing multiplayer games, it will be the same playing field. Base PS4 users, PS4 Pro users, you’re still running the same frame rate. Yes, you’re running at a higher resolution, you might be seeing it in HDR, but overall it’s a level playing field. We’re not benefiting the PS4 Pro users and skewing the community.
The PlayStation 4 Pro is capable of running games at 4K resolution due to the increased CPU and GPU frequency and bandwidth as well. That will help the developers to run at 1080p and constant 60 fps or even with the 4K resolution. However, the players will be getting same frame rates during the multiplayer modes across the PlayStation 4 models.
The console comes with a mechanical hard disk of 1TB capacity and it will go on sale on November 10th for $399.
Below you can check the list of titles with HDR and 4K support:
- For Honor
