PS4’s HDR feature won’t work with PSVR plugged in
If you have stacks on stacks of hard green backs lying around, you might be picking up Sony’s two big hardware releases this fall, the PlayStation 4 Pro and the PlayStation VR. In that case, you might even have an HDR-ready television to go with them. If you’re hoping to use both, though, you can look forward to swapping cables. The PlayStation 4 Pro offers true HDR color for any games built to support it via theHDR10 standard supported by new 4K televisions, allowing...
PlayStation 4 Pro won’t give players an advantage in multiplayer – Well, maybe a bit
The PlayStation 4 Pro is promising to improve game graphics and performance in upper resolutions, but according to one high profile developer, it will in no way carry those advantages into multiplayer. With the announcement of the new console yesterday, fans immediately began to worry if input lag and frame rates would give players with the money to buy the better console an advantage. Naughty Dog Lead Developer Christian Gyrling has spoken out against th...
The PS4 Pro was created to keep players from migrating to PC, says Sony boss
After the official reveal of the PlayStation 4 Pro last week in New York, gaming and tech sites around the world have been asking sort of the same question: who was this system made for? It sounds like a loaded question that suggests the PS4 Pro is pointless. It isn’t. We understand what it does and recognize that the games look good on it if the proper display is in place. It’s just such a minor bump in capabilities that one has to wonder who, exactly, ...
PlayStation 4 Pro ‘enhanced’ titles will feature this sticker
If you decide to pick up a PlayStation 4 Pro this fall, chances are you’ll be looking for games that show off how good it looks on the 4K HDR television set you just bought to go with it. There are three ways to go about this. The first one is sheer chance, and we don’t recommend that. You could do some research online ahead of time. Or, if you’re in the store and in the heat of the impulse purchase moment, Sony has you covered. Games with the icon on the packaging...
Here’s the current list of games that will support PS4 Pro
When the PS4 Pro launches on November 10, 2016, for $399.99, you should know that not every game will make use of the 4K, HDR tech. That’ll need to be applied as a free patch or featured in specific titles, and it’s not guaranteed to be supported by everything. So, what will support the PS4 Pro’s full features? Here, courtesy of GamesRadar+ is the current list of already available and upcoming titles that will be PS4 Pro compatible....
Surprised the PS4 Pro doesn’t support 4K Blu-Ray? Microsoft was, too
Now that we’ve distanced ourselves from the reveal of the PS4 Pro, one of the head-scratching points has sort of washed over the gaming world. The PS4 Pro, despite being able to play 4K content, will not make use of 4K Blu-Ray movies. The Xbox One S does, as Microsoft has pointed out before. It seems like an odd choice, though one that Sony has dismissed as a decision made based on the notion that streaming content is the wa...
PS4 Pro: Sony Won’t Charge Extra for Forward Compatibility Patches or Enhanced Games
In an interview with Game Impress Watch (translated by Kotaku), Masayasu Ito, an Executive VP at Sony Interactive Entertainment, suggested forward compatibility patches for PlayStation 4 games on PS4 Pro would cost money. When asked if 4K HDR updates for existing games would cost money, he replied, “It will be different for each title. I believe it will depend on the thinking of each licensee,” he said, referring to third-party publishers. For Sony, he said, “I thi...
Sony Says “There Will be More PlayStations”
Now that Sony has officially announced the PlayStation 4 Pro, which will be the first mid-generation console upgrade, Sony Interactive Entertainment America President Shawn Layden was asked by The Verge if upgrades are the future of consoles, or if the next thing will be a PS5. According to Layden, they were focused on iterating within this console cycle with PS4 Pro, but there will be more PlayStations in the future: Right now we were concentrating on how do we iterate within this PS4 life ...
Premium HDMI Cable Needed for PS4 Pro 4K Support
  You have that big, shiny 4K TV. You’re planning on getting the PS4 Pro so you can take advantage of the 4K tech with video games. But do you have all of the cables needed to do so? The PS4 Pro will use your standard HDMI cable that you likely already have, but in order to use the 4K settings, you will need some new equipment. The PS4 Pro has settings for both 2160p YUV420 and 2160p RGB (the latter is highly recommended by Sony if your 4K TV supports it). But if you want...
Sony Executive Explains the 8GB of RAM for PS4 Pro
One technical spec that many gamers have pointed out as a flaw in the PS4 Pro is Sony’s decision to keep the RAM at 8GB. One of the PlayStation 3’s biggest issues from last generation was its limited RAM, and PlayStation fans don’t want to see the PS4 Pro falter for a similar reason. The head of the Sony Interactive Entertainment Engineering Division, Masayasu Ito, discussed why the company opted to leave the RAM capacity as it is.  When changing the memory size, devel...
Naughty Dog: HDR Is the Future, “We See Little to No Reason to Not Support This”
When PlayStation 4 update 4.00 goes live tomorrow, high dynamic range (HDR) imaging technology support will be added to all PS4s, enabling “the reproduction of brightness and darkness while realizing a much wider range of colors,” provided you own an HDR-compatible TV. Some first-party developers have already discussed HDR, and in an interview with VG247, Naughty Dog Lead Programmer Christian Gyrling explained that it costs almost nothing to expose the HDR, and the benefits are hu...
Report: Gamestop Closing PS4 Pro Pre-Orders This Week
If you’ve been hemming and hawing about pre-ordering the PS4 Pro, and Gamestop was one of your considerations for purchase, you might want to get a move on. Word is coming down from numerous Gamestop store managers that the chain will close pre-orders this Thursday, September 15, 2016. Gamestop hasn’t properly announced this, but store managers and employees have let the word slip to The Outerhaven.  It’s possible this is not true or perhaps even a publicity stunt to...
PS4 Pro Impressions – Witnessing Is Believing
  Showing off a sizable chunk of fresh content from a highly anticipated Sony exclusive like Horizon: Zero Dawn would ordinarily be a pretty big deal, possibly even warranting its own press event. But at this week’s reveal of the PlayStation 4 Pro,  previously unseen gameplay of  Guerrilla Games’ ambitious action-RPG  took a backseat to how the title’s harnessing the polygon-pushing power of the new hardware. Following the console&rsqu...
PS4 Pro – Every Important Info We Know So Far
  In 2013, New York played host to the PlayStation 4 reveal event, a landmark announcement for Sony that stoked excitement for the holiday season all without revealing the actual hardware itself. Indeed few would have predicted that the PS4 would hit the ground running in such spectacular fashion, and fewer still would’ve wagered that the industry would be prepping for a revamped model only three years later. And yet here we are; PlayStation 4 Pro is real. It’s a ne...
“Virtually All” Upcoming PS4 Games Will Be Able to Take Advantage of the PS4 Pro on Day 1
  Following the release of the PlayStation 4 Pro on November 10, numerous PS4 games will support the new console’s features and power, many without the need for an update.

PS4 Pro: PES 2017 & Mantis Burn Racing Will Support It, Destiny: Rise of Iron Might Not
Many developers have already announced that they’ll be taking advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro when it launches on November 10, but it looks like Bungie won’t be one of them – at least not right away. Speaking in a roundtable interview attended by GameSpot, Bungie revealed that they don’t have any plans to add PS4 Pro support to Destiny: Rise of Iron: No [we aren’t planning on any support for PS4 Pro], not for Rise of Iron. We’re all done. As far as the ...
Rise of the Tomb Raider Features Three Visual Modes for PS4 Pro Owners
A former Xbox One exclusive looks to be one of the most impressive showpieces of what the PlayStation 4 Pro can do. Crystal Dynamics’ action-adventure title will support three different visual modes when played on PS4 Pro, with each focusing on a different area. There’s an option for everyone, whether a player wants to focus on a better frame rate, 4K support, or just want the game to be as pretty as possible. Crystal Dynamics’ Scott Amos explained the three modes in...
Only One Person Is Implementing Days Gone’s PS4 Pro Support
It seems like PlayStation 4 Pro support might not require that much manpower to get working. According to Digital Foundry‘s Richard Leadbetter only one person is working on Days Gone‘s support of 4K and HDR, and only two people worked on the PlayStation Meeting demo of inFamous First Light. That’s an astonishing fact, but it speaks to how easy the PS4 Pro is to optimize for. Speaking about the two inFamous PS4 games, Leadbetter stated that th...
Sony: There Will Be a “Significant Amount” Of PS4 Pro Stock at Launch & Through Christmas
In an interview with MCV UK, Jim Ryan, Head of Global Sales and Marketing at Sony, revealed that they’ll have a “significant amount of stock” for the PlayStation 4 Pro at launch on November 10, but he doesn’t know if it will be enough: I’ve been told, just before we had this conversation, that pre-orders in the UK are looking pretty good. I can’t give you the numbers yet, but I’m pleasantly surprised. We will have a significant amount of stock at lau...
Sony Can’t Make Japan Care About PS4 Pro (And Everyone’s OK With This)
  Tokyo Game Show 2016 made it clear that Japan won’t give a flying damn about the PS4 Pro, and Sony knows it. Moreover, Sony isn’t trying to change that. Hell, if you were here for TGS, wandering into one very specific, small corner of the giant show floor was the only way you’d know PS4 Pro was a thing. Japan has a reputation for being slower to adopt new gaming technology than other territories; even the mighty 3DS had a painful launch y...
Microsoft on PS4 Pro: “I Know That 4.2 Teraflops Is Not Enough to Do True 4K”
When Microsoft’s Project Scorpio releases in holiday 2017, it will “be the most powerful console ever created with 6TFLOPS capable of delivering true 4K gaming,” the company has said. In comparison, the PlayStation 4 Pro launching this holiday has 4.2TFLOPS of power and, according to Xbox planning lead Albert Penello, that “is not enough to do true 4K.” Speaking with Eurogamer, Penello talked about how there’s a lot of asterisks around Sony&rsq...
Report: Sony Has Started PS4 Pro Production
It’s being reported that Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron both have started production of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Foxconn is apparently doing double-duty, as they have allegedly taken on trial production of the Nintendo NX as well. The Nintendo NX is Nintendo’s upcoming and yet unnamed console reportedly releasing in 2017.  In the past, Foxconn and Pegatron equally split the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) production of PlayStation consoles. However, Pegatron bec...
PS4 Pro vs Xbox One S
PS4 PRO VS XBOX ONE S – PERFORMANCE The performance difference between the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One S is pretty huge, and this directly affects what the two are capable of. The Xbox One S, as previously discussed, is essentially the same machine as the Xbox One in terms of internal specifications. There are very minor performance differences in very specific circumstances, but for all intents and purposes it’s the same machine. This makes life easier for developers. ...
Digital Foundry: Hands-on with COD Infinite Warfare on PS4 Pro
PlayStation 4 Pro's enhancements for supported titles are proving varied from what we've seen so far, ranging from resolution bumps to more fine-tuned visual tweaks. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare gave us more insight on this - the one game to demo the hardware at EGX 2016 this week. Running on a guarded row of six PS4 Pro machines, we could compare it to a similar multiplayer build running on the original PS4 - a rare chance to see the prospective gains for supported titles as we app...
Sony says the PS4 Pro is 4K-ready, but will it actually render games at 2160p?
During yesterday’s messy PlayStation Meeting event, Sony’s Andrew House officially announced the PS4 Pro — a mid-generation refresh that’s catering to the burgeoning 4K market. The $399 asking price and the early November release date are exciting, but the announcement left us scratching our heads. How can Sony pull off 4K UHD gameplay with these specs? Why doesn’t it have a UHD Blu-ray drive? How will this update compare with Project Scorpio? The console market ...
How Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro does 4K without delivering 4K
Yesterday, Sony took the wraps off its PlayStation 4 Pro, in what was undoubtedly meant as an exciting launch unveil but came across as rather confused, instead. There’s been a lot of chatter over what the PS4 Pro can and can’t deliver with regards to 4K, so let’s unpack that question. The GPU inside the PS4 Pro is widely believed to be a downclocked variant of AMD’s RX 480 running at 911MHz. This GPU is substantially more powerful than the PlayStation 4’s GPU...
The PS4 Pro makes console gaming more complicated, but will it make it better?
For decades, consoles have had one significant advantage over PCs: simplicity. While this has changed somewhat in recent years, thanks to increased console complexity and capabilities undreamed of in the days of the NES, consoles have still been marketed and sold as an easy way to get into gaming compared with PCs. Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro is going to change that, and not necessarily in a good way. Ever since rumors leaked of a mid-cycle PlayStation 4 upgrade, there have been questio...
PS4 Slim vs PS4 Pro – Skinny or 4K?
Thinner ain't always better when it comes to consoles. Sony just announced not one, but two new consoles – the PS4 slim and PS4 Pro – that are both out before the end of the year.  The PS4 "slim" is actually just called the PS4 as it's a direct replacement for the original model – although we're calling it the PS4 Slim for clarity – and is out on September 15. Then you've got the more powerful, 4K and HDR focused&n...
These 20 games will be enhanced for the PS4 Pro
The PS4 Pro is twice as powerful as the standard PlayStation, but in order to make effective use of that processing prowess, game developers have to code for it. Fancier effects and higher resolutions won't be available for every title. Currently released games will need to be updated, and newer games built with the functionality. With 4.2 teraflops at its disposal, the PS4 Pro should deliver a visual experience like no console has before. First up, the list of titles alre...
PlayStation chief: Why PS4 Pro is Sony's iPhone, VR is the future and Xbox isn't playing nice anymore
Who could have guessed back in 2013 when the PS4 arrived that Sony would launch not one, but two brand new consoles within three years. The PS4 Pro marks the first time that Sony or any other console manufacturer has launched a brand new version of a console mid-cycle – beating Microsoft's Xbox Project Scorpio to the punch by a full year. And from what Sony boss Andrew House has said, Xbox definitely isn't playing nice anymore – the competition is very much back on. ...
Geek deals: Save on the PS4 Pro by using credit cards
Earlier this week, Sony announced the November 10th release of the PS4 Pro. This beefy console will deliver some incredibly gorgeous games, but it’s launching at $399.99 — the original cost of the PS4. It doesn’t even come with a bundled game, so this machine is a hard sell for many of us. Sadly, we’re not likely to see any direct discounts anytime soon, but today we’ll give you some tips on how to offset some of the cost by using the right kinds of credit cards....
PlayStation boss on PS4 Pro: our approach isn't reactive this time around
Andrew House also discussed relevance of physical media in gaming, following launch of Sony’s Ultra 4k streaming service. The head of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Andrew House has claimed there is not enough consumer interest in 4K UHD discs to support the format on the new PlayStation 4 Pro. Speaking to the Guardian after the company’s PlayStation Meeting event in New York, House said it would not be possible to add support for UHD discs in a later firmware update, but a...

PLAYSTATION 4 PRO VS. PROJECT SCORPIO: THE PR WAR CONTINUE
It’s Microsoft‘s turn to talk about gaming in 4K resolution.

Today, it’s Shannon Loftis‘ turn – she’s Microsoft Studios’ publishing general manager. Quoting her from the interview with USA Today: „...
PS4 Pro Requires Very Little Investment from Developers
CD Projekt Red's decision not to update The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the PlayStation 4 Pro has prompted some people to ponder just how many resources developers need to commit to the new machine. According to Digital Foundry, the answer is very few, as it's reporting that just one person from Sony Bend is working on support for Days Gone, while two from Sucker Punch are currently upgrading inFAMOUS: First Light and inFAMOUS: Second Son. More to th...
Guerrilla Games: Resolution Is Really the Only Difference Between HDR on PS4 Pro & PS4

Speaking with VentureBeat recently, Guerrilla Games Managing Director Hermen Hulst was asked if it will be easy to have a game work on the new model and previous model, and he revealed that they only have one or two technicians looking at the hardware: Ye...
Every PS4 Pro Game That Is and Isn't Getting an Upgrade Patch
Sony showed off a bunch of games that take advantage of the new PS4 Pro at its recent livestreamed event in New York.

Some already-released games will feature PS4 Pro support through updates, while others will come with enhancements out of the box. It's not clear how...

6 Reasons To Buy A PS4 Pro Instead Of An Xbox One S
The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 both launched in 2013. We didn’t expect a renewed interest in the console wars until the next generation of consoles were upon us, but we were wrong. In 2016, both Microsoft and Sony have brand new iterations of these two gaming systems. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. The Xbox One S is Microsoft’s new offering, while the PS4 Pro is Sony’s new and improved sku. Both systems toss around the term “4K” a bunch. And bot...

History of the PS4 Pro
According to lead architect Mark Cerny, development of Sony's fourth video game console began as early as 2008. Less than two years earlier, the PlayStation 3 had launched after months of delays due to issues with production.
