Sony officially announced the PS4 Pro, an updated version of its best-selling PlayStation 4 console, will be out Nov. 10 for $399.
PS4 Pro will feature a faster CPU, a 1 terabyte hard drive, and a GPU that is more than double the power of the original PS4’s. The new console will also support all previous PS4 games.
PS4 Lead Systems Architect Mark Cerny took the stage at the PlayStation Meeting in New York to show off what a few games will look like on the PS4 Pro. Spider-Man, For Honor, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Deus: Ex Mankind Divided, Days Gone, Watch Dogs 2, Farpoint for PSVR, and Horizon Zero Dawn will take advantage of the console’s upgrade.
Forward compatibility patches will be made for over a half dozen first party titles, including Uncharted 4, that will improve games released before the launch of the PS4 Pro. Patches will also be available for many third party games. Activision announced Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will receive an online update to improve its visuals on PS4 Pro while Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered will also receive upgrades.
4K streaming services will be available including a new Netflix app at launch. The previous PS4 will be HDR compatible through a firmware update. Sony also announced a PS4 Slim will release on Sept. 15 for $299.
