Sony have been toying with the new PlayStation Neo for a good while now, and the only solid fact was that 4K was going to be a big part of it. Finally Sony have uncovered the new PS4 Pro.

The new console will launch with upgraded GPU and increased CPU clock speed and support for 4K resolution and HDR gaming. Sony included some Demo’s during their press event and showed off some current titles taking advantage of the new hardware with extra details during gameplay, but newer games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare are said to launch with full support for the PS4 Pro hardware with other games gaining support at later dates.


All previous titles will of course will work with the new hardware, with some most likely getting updates to take advantage of the new hardware. Black Ops 3 is already stated to be of those such games, along with Battlefield 1 and FIFA 16 getting support later in the year after launch. 4K is not the only option, with 1080p gaming still getting a bump with patches set allow developers to offer better graphical features at 1080p.

PlayStation VR is also ready to gain from the extra performance with developers able to offer increased resolution/frame rate for an overall better VR experience. PS4 Pro will also launch with a new Netflix app with support for 4K videos.

The new console arrives November 10th for €399 and includes a 1TB HDD.
