The entertainment system, which was codenamed "Neo" last June, has a faster processor, 4K resolution support, and improved graphic performance.
The new console is perfect for hardcore gamers with its true 4K resolution games and enhanced virtual reality titles such as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and FIFA 17. The following will be able to run in 1080p resolution for a clearer view. Let's face it, no one likes pixelated games. So, even if you have an HDTV that is neither HDR nor 4K-ready, Sony still promises an excellent gaming experience.
The PS4 Pro packs an x86-64 AMD Jaguar, eight-core CPU and an AMD Radeon-based graphics engine, that guarantee a one-of-a-kind gaming performance. To accommodate more games and other content, Sony equipped the PS4 Pro with a 1TB hard disk drive capacity. It has an additional USB port at the back, plus two more in front for connecting additional devices such as the Playstation VR, which will be released on October 13.
Series bingers are in for a treat because the unit will include a Netflix app that will showcase Luke Cage (Hooray!) and Season 2 of Narcos. A YouTube app will also be part of the PS4 Pro; did we mention it's also in 4K? Imagine all those hours of hi-def marathons.
"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 President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Andrew House in a statement.
The PS4 Pro has yet to be launched in the Philippines, but will be out in other countries on November 10 for P22,900. Let's cross our fingers and hope it will arrive in time for the holiday season.
Here's a sneak peak of the Pro:
