This week was also good for Microsoft, as the Xbox One sales jump to 85% from the previous week.
This new model of PlayStation 4 have more than double Graphics processing power with faster SoC, and an internal HD 1TB. The console is capable to run games at 4k and also offer the possibility of HDR (High Dynamic Range) for games and also for other types of content such as movies and TV series.
There are lots of confusion on “4k Gaming” that whether it’s native or upscaled, Sony’s Andrew House said, “I would say the majority will be upscaled – at least based on the game portfolio I have seen to date.” Asked if he feels like ‘4K gaming’ is a misleading term, House replied:
No, I don’t think so. I think that whatever the term is, it’s a question of whether people see a demonstrable difference in the game experience or not, rather than the term we use to apply to it.
I think that’s what people are looking for and they’ll make their judgement as to whether that’s working for them or not.
Also PS4 Pro is not compatible with Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K content can only be availed through streams (such as Netflix and YouTube) and applications.
The PlayStation 4 Pro is now available for $399. Microsoft is also working on its own high-end, 4K capable gaming console featuring 6 TFlops.
