Blockbuster PS4 games, including Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Activision), Ratchet & Clank, The Last of Us Remastered, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (SIE Worldwide Studios), have been updated to take advantage of PS4 Pro’s increased power.

“Ever since the announcement of the PlayStation 4 Pro we have been overwhelmed by the demand from gamers and it’s with much excitement to get this to them before Christmas, another leap in the world of  PlayStation,” said Mario Dos Santos, CEO of Ster Kinekor Entertainment.

PS4 Pro leverages the latest imaging technology by supporting dynamic 4K quality resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR). The powerful CPU and GPU of PS4 Pro allows developers to create higher-quality games that output dynamic 4K quality graphics with unprecedented visual precision, or smoother and more stable frame rates. Like all PS4 consoles, the system is also compatible with HDR imaging technology that produces more realistic, strikingly vivid visuals that are truer to the way the human eye naturally sees.

The introduction of PS4 Pro, which sits alongside the standard PS4, will provide consumers with more choice. Users can play every PS4 game on both PS4 Pro and the standard PS4, which was recently released in a slimmer and lighter model at a suggested retail price of R5200.  PlayStationVR is compatible with both systems. PS4 Pro and the standard PS4 will also share the same user interface and have access to the same online community.

For gamers who own an HDTV that does not support either 4K or HDR, PS4 Pro provides a number of benefits, such as higher or more stable frame rates, and enhanced graphics and environments.
