Sony Announces PS4 Slim And PS4 Pro

Today’s PlayStation meeting has just finished, and in it Sony came forward with their brand new console, the PlayStation Pro.

PlayStation Pro is the official name for the previously rumored PlayStation Neo, and brings with it an upgraded GPU, boosted clock rate, and a 1 TB hard drive. The console also supports high dynamic range imaging, and as previously rumored, 4K support as well as support for HD TVs. It will also provide increased support for PlayStation VR.


The console also has a feature known as Forward Compatibility, which features games from first party and third party developers, that have been patched to play better on the PlayStation Pro. Some of these tiles are Shadow Of Mordor and Paragon.

This new console will not act to drive a line between PlayStation Pro players and regular PlayStation 4 players. Sony assures us that it will remain a single community and that the same game discs and downloads will work on both models of the console, though they will play in different ways.
