Sony’s newly-announced PS4 Pro has been given a release date and price.
The upgraded console will be available starting 10th November for £349/$399 at major retailers around the world.
PS4 Pro features a number of upgrades and enhancements, including 4K support, more GPU, and a built-in 1TB hard drive. Additionally, one of its major selling points is increased visual fidelity and connectivity between the classic PS4 and this new version.
President and Group CEO Andrew House pulled the lid off PlayStation 4 Pro at today’s PlayStation Meeting event in New York City. PS4 lead architect Mark Cerny joined him to provide a high-level overview of the Pro console’s specs, followed by footage of games new and old running on Pro hardware.
Thanks to Sony’s forward compatibility, developers will be able to patch previously released titles such as Uncharted 4 and Shadow of Mordor to take advantage of PS4 Pro features like 4K resolution.
“Today marks an exciting new milestone for PlayStation as we unveiled the high-end PS4 Pro in the midst of the console lifecycle, catering to gamers who are looking for a heightened PS4 experience,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “By accelerating the innovation cadence at PlayStation, we’re introducing choice in the marketplace, enabling gamers to choose the PS4 model that meets their needs. Ultimately, with titles that leverage the potential of PS4 Pro – plus PlayStation VR launching soon – all PS4 owners continue to benefit from having the best place to play.”
