PS4 Pro: Specs, Release Date, and Price Confirmed

Sony officially revealed the Ps4 Pro, confirming that it will support 4k resolution when it launches later this year.
It will launch on November 10, 2016 and cost $399.

The console will complement the standard PS4 and sit alongside it. The name was picked to show that it is part of the current version of the console, but aimed at the higher-end gamers. It is not an entirely new architecture and thus not a new generation of PlayStation hardware. Mark Cerny said Sony’s vision is to “take the PS4 experience to extraordinary new levels.”


According to reports, it support both the current DualShock 4 controller as well as the updated version revealed in August via PlayStation 4 Slim leaks.

Among the hardware upgrades in the PS4 Pro are a 1TB hard drive, doubled GPU power, and technology adapted from AMD Polaris graphical architecture. These allow the PS4 Pro to reach resolutions “not thought possible on consoles” in 2016. The CPU clockspeed has also been boosted. The Pro will not have a 4K Blu-ray drive.

The PS4 Pro will support 4K gaming, transforming the likes of Rise of the Tomb Raider, Spider-Man and Watch Dogs 2 and the most awaited game by Team ICO: The Last Guardian.
Other games shown at higher-resolution and using HDR include Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Infamous: Last Light, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and Horizon: Zero Dawn. HDR support will be introduced to all models of PS4 via a system update next week.

Still, even if you don’t own an HDR TV, games will still look “upgraded” by boosting the graphics for lower definition displays. Cernyt said the PS4 Pro will automatically output to the best resolution possible, and will play the games at the determined setting.

A new Netflix app will also be available on PS4 Pro at launch, with multiple shows and films supporting 4K. 4K YouTube support has also been announced.


PlayStation fans can also grab the upcoming PS4 Slim, which launches on September 15.

According to Sony, the PS4 Slim is 30% smaller than the current PS4 and weighs 16% less than its Sony rival.

Power consumption is also down by 28%, although sony claims the working components remain the same.
