The Playstation 4 Pro is finally available! But what exactly does it offer?

The Playstation 4 Pro is finally available! But what exactly does it offer?

In early September, gaming giant Sony introduced the latest version of the Playstation 4 console, the PlayStation 4 Pro. Compared with the basic version, the Playstation 4 Pro offers improved performance, with support for 4K resolution and HDR image processing. Furthermore, Sony also launched a series of updates optimising over 30 game titles for use with the PS4.

PlayStation 4 with AMD Polaris graphics

The PS4's most important upgrade is a brand new graphics chip based on the modern AMD Polaris architecture, making it 2.5 times more powerful than the standard PS4. Other new additions include the 64-bit eight-core AMD Jaguar processor and 1TB hard drive. As a result, the PS supports games in 4K resolution and offers an increased framerate, smoother images, and improved graphics. This leap in performance also allows you to experience the PlayStation VR headset in its full glory.

Of course there is also support for 4K video streaming from services such as Netflix and YouTube. For those without Full HD TVs, games will run in the standard 1080p at a higher fps rate. The Playstation 4 Pro also supports HDR technology, which displays light and dark colours across a much broader colour palette, making games and movies more realistic and vivid. This technology can only be used with TVs that support HDR.

Games in glorious 4K

Sony has released updates optimising more than 30 games for 4K resolution. By the end of the year, Sony plans to further optimise more than 45 titles. All other PS4 games can still be played on the Pro version, but "only" in 1080p.

It should be noted that not all titles will be able to make use of native 4K after being updated. In many cases, Sony uses a custom upscaling solution known as "checkerboarding". While this technique is inferior to native 4K, the difference is negligible in practice.

The actual update is quick and easy. After inserting the disc into the drive, or after startup if you bought the game digitally, the patch downloads automatically. Games released after 10.11.2016 will support 4K resolution and HDR display immediately, without the need to download anything.

Which games will be optimised for the PS4?

There are currently over 30 game titles optimised for use with the PS4 Pro. In addition to these, more than 45 other games will be optimised for use with the PS4 Pro, including Watch Dogs 2, Killing Floor 2, The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy XV. In 2017, titles such as Nioh, Resident Evil Biohazard 7, For Honor, Gravity Rush 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone and Gran Turismo Sport will be added to the list. Exciting news for gaming enthusiasts!
