Apple isn’t the only one unveiling new products today. Sony has also taken the time to officially introduce its new PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 Slim.
In comparison to the current model, the new standard PS4 (the PS4 Slim) notes a reduced volume by 30 percent, weight by 16 percent, and power consumption by 28 percent. The overall design of the console is noticeably smaller, although it still boasts all of the same powerful components.
The PS4 Pro then supports the latest in imaging technology through 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR), as well as smoother frame rates. The more powerful GPU and faster CPU will in turn make games look that much richer and more detailed. Accordingly, various developers are updating previously launched PS4 games to add PS4 Pro support, while others are simply building PS4 Pro support into upcoming releases.
If you’re worried about not owning a TV that supports 4K or HDR, the PS4 Pro is still filled with a number of upgrades. All games will run in 1080p resolution and some will even run in a higher or more stable frame rate.
In addition, Sony is working with its partners, such as Netflix, to build new apps for PS4 to enhance streaming capabilities.
The new standard PS4 ($299.99 USD) will be available by September 15, while the PS4 Pro ($399.99 USD) is scheduled to launch on November 10.
