The PS4 Pro has been revealed and is set to arrive in November, laying the groundwork for the next generation of gaming tech. The PS4 Pro is the first mid-cycle console to come out of Sony and will allow players to indulge in ultra rich 4K gaming as well as ushering in HDR compatibility (also due for regular PS4 owners via an upcoming patch).

The PS4 Pro’s updated software and overclocked CPU is capable of delivering far richer, more immersive gaming experiences. We saw some beautiful examples of this during the conference; Bioware showed off Mass Effect: Andromeda and Guerrilla Games showcased a little Horizon Zero Dawn. This beautiful 4K display gave us just a taste of what is to come.

PS4 Pro has a comprehensive collection already

It seems that, already, we have a pretty respectable line-up of games awaiting the launch of the new unit. So far, Sony has 18 confirmed titles that will be PS4 Pro optimized.

There will be no PS4 Pro or PS4 Slim exclusives, the games listed below have been enhanced to allow for a higher level of fidelity when played on the PS4 Pro - they will be playable on the original and the Slim also.

PS4 Pro 4K Gameplay

Sony has also stated that many other games that are already available on the PS4 will soon be patched to allow for maximum levels of fidelity to be achieved when played on the PS4 Pro.

That’s not the only bit of great news. The gaming giants have also stated that they will soon be releasing a global update that will allow HDR compatibility across each and every PS4 unit (including the 2013 launch model).

It surely is a great time to be a PlayStation fan! Will you be buying the new PS4 Pro?
