Time to decide which path to choose. Will you go for Slim or Pro, the choice is yours.
The new standard Playstation 4 and Playstation 4 Pro are set to hit the shelves these coming months, and are set to carry a price tag of $299 and $399 respectively. With its price, the new PS4 Slim is aimed to reel in gamers who are not yet part of the PS4 community.
The PS4 Slim model will have 30 percent reduced volume, 16 percent reduce in weight, and its power consumption reduced by 28 percent. Despite being sleek and slim, the new PS4 still packs the same powerful components that its predecessor introduced.
On the other hand, the PS4 Pro is armed with a more powerful CPU and GPU to deliver cutting-edge visual and graphics. It has the capability to enhance PS4 games with the support of the latest imaging technology through 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR), as well as smoother frame rates.
To be able to experience the enhanced visual and graphics of the PS4 Pro, patches for some titles are readily available for download. No need to fret tho, PS4 developers are updating previously released PS4 games to add PS4 Pro Support.
Even if you still rock an HDTV that doesn’t support either 4K or HDR, the PS4 Pro will still give you a number of benefits. All games will run at full HD (1080P), and some will even run at higher or more stable framerates.
Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said that,it’s important to note that the choice is yours. Whether you’re playing on PS4 Pro, the new slimmer and lighter PS4, or the PS4 system you bought at launch in 2013, you’ll have access to the same amazing games with the same features and same vibrant community that make PlayStation the best place to play. There won’t be any gameplay features exclusive to PS4 Pro or the standard PS4. In fact, we believe the impact of HDR on gaming and entertainment is so promising that all PlayStation 4 systems – back to the very first console sold in 2013 – are now HDR capable.
