Original story follows.
As predicted, Sony unveiled their new hardware variants for the PlayStation 4 today during their press meeting at New York. The PlayStation Neo has been given an official name – the PlayStation 4 Pro – and been given a price and date. The PS4 Slim has also been confirmed, following weeks of leaked information as units somehow found their way into the wold.
The PS4 Pro features multiple hardware upgrades over its predecessor, including a 1TB hard drive, and double GPU power.
"Our goal is to deliver high-fidelity graphical experiences," said Mark Cerny, the system’s lead architect. "We aim to provide developers with tools to further their visions."
Multiple games were shown running on the Pro, including Insomniac’s upcoming Spider-Man title, hack-and-slasher For Honor from Ubisoft, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Watch Dogs 2. Cerny went on to say that patches for “over a half-dozen” Sony titles are in the works to take advantage of the Pro’s new hardware, with third-party developers also contributing.
HDR support will be added to all current PS4 models via a system update next week.
The PlayStation 4 Pro is set to release on November 10, for $399 USD. We’ll update this story when New Zealand pricing becomes available.
