PlayStation Meeting: Sony Announce the PS4 Pro

Sony have unveiled their latest gaming machine – the PS4 Pro.

Previously rumoured to be called anything from PS4.5 to PS4 Neo, the Pro is designed to – in the words of architect Mark Cerny – “offer something to those who have already embraced the latest technologies.”

Boasting double the GPU power of the original model, the Pro will come equipped with a 1TB hard drive as well as advanced graphics and colour. During the event, Sony showed off gameplay from, among others, Spider-man, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Unchartered 4 and Shadow of Mordor. The games will also come with a forward compatibility feature, meaning that they will take advantage of the higher specs found in the new console.

Taking advantage of the new 4K capabilities, the console will also come with a new Netflix app, which will support 4K series such as Marvel’s Luke Cage, in addition to a 4K-centric YouTube app.

It will not, however, be able to play 4K Blu-ray discs.

The PS4 Pro will be available from November 10, retailing at the remarkably-low price of £349.
