The rumors regarding Sony’s elusive new console that promised to put an end to the age old console generation cycle have been circulating for months. PlayStation 4 Pro is that console. And while the code name Neo sounded awesome, Sony wanted to emphasize how much the new version will be for all the Pro Gamers out there.
All jokes aside, PlayStation 4 Pro will have numerous improvements over the original model with a pretty affordable price of $399 or £349, which is the exact same price the console originally launched at. The main emphasis of the new hardware is 4K. In order to account for the resolution increase, the CPU has been boosted and the GPU has been more than doubled in power. The new console will also have a 1TB HDD and since all existing games will be playable on PlayStation 4 Pro Sony will allow you to transfer you existing library. Both the new and old models will support HDR via a software update.
PlayStation 4 Pro aside, Sony has officially announced the PlayStation 4 Slim. This is not much of a surprise, since it was leaked multiple times in the past month. This new version will replace the original model. It is lighter, thinner and most important of all, has physical power and eject buttons both of which are labeled meaning you will no longer have to worry about hitting the wrong one by accident. The new PlayStation will be priced at $299 and will hit store shelves on September 15th.
