the possibility of some major upgrades has been made on Sony ps4 pro from its previous version ps4 slim.

The main focus is the new 4k HDR gaming support but there is more important difference between ps4 pro and redesigned version of ps4 which is known as ps4

So what we have in comparison to terms of performance at PS4? The Pro will run games faster, with fewer frame rate tears in more intensive games, which
make a smoother gaming experience.


With the increased GPU which is more than double of the previous PS4, should go a long way towards making that happen.

All new and recent PS4 games are required to support ‘pro’ mode well that’s mean either improved resolution and/or increased texture and effects quality.
Games that support an increased ‘4K’ mode have to run as smoothly as they do on the standard PS4 console.

Even if you don’t have a 4K TV, games will look better on the PS4 Pro, though what is made by the developer.

Well, Of course, the PS4 Pro adds support for 4K output to facilitate all of this, which means you’ll be able to play games and stream certain content in
Ultra HD provided you’ve got a 4K-ready TV set. It’ll also upscale some games to ‘near 4K’ and offer improved frame rates if there is imperfect

The PS4 Pro doesn’t feature a 4K Blu-ray player though obviously neither does the new PS4 proper, which also won’t be able to play games or stream content
in 4K well that’s disappointing.


However, Sony’s latest software update has introduced support for HDR video and gaming for the standard PS4 console (both the new slim design and the
original console).

While the PS4 won’t be able to stream or play games in 4K, it will bring HDR enhancements to content, which include brighter whites, more natural colures,
and more detail preserved in the you don’t have to worry about it naturally, the PS4 Pro will also support HDR, but you will need an HDR-ready set
in both cases.

Another reason for the performance boost on the Pro is the impending arrival of PSVR, which launches later this year. The both models of PS4 will be
supported for new Sony’s virtual reality platform which is PSVR.

The current PS4 tech is a bit slower when it comes to virtual reality some developers said that is a disappointment.

Sony has specified that all VR games have to run at 60fps minimum to avoid any issues with lag and motion sickness, which is a tricky task for the current

With The Pro console’s extra processing grunt will ensure the experience is smooth so developers don’t have to compromise so much on graphical detail.

PS4 Pro also captures 1080p video and 4K screenshots by using specific hardware or the ‘Dual shock 4’s share button. These will store in the local hard
drive or you can transfer to other devices via a USB. In this way, you’ll be able to share some truly stunning pic on social media.

Those upgrading from a standard PS4 to a PS4 Pro will be able to transfer all their saved data using an Ethernet cable,

you shouldn’t lose too much if you plan on upgrading. Once your current PS4 is upgraded to firmware version 4.0, you can find an option to transfer via
Ethernet hid away in the settings menu.

PS4 Pro vs PS4 – Software

Promises of double the graphics power made some hope for some amazing games in the future, but Sony has previously told developers the PS4 Pro cannot have
“exclusive” games of its own; all software must work on the older hardware, be it the original PS4 or the slimmer 2016 model.

However, games will be allowed to have Pro-exclusive improvements such as higher-res textures, better resolutions and improved frame rates, make a relaxing
run and an acceptable pace on the original console.


This is going to be a bit of a double-edged sword for developers. On one hand, they’ll have more power to play with, which means better frame rates and
higher resolutions. But they’ll also have to make sure their games scale down to the older machine. This adds a whole load of extra work and means
development teams may have to grow to handle the increased faff.

Ultimately, this means we may not see the true potential of the Pro relished until well into 2017 when studios have properly adapted to the new workload.

PS4 Pro vs PS4 – Design, and accessories

The PS4 Pro is big. It’ll measure 295mm x 55mm x 327mm (width by height by depth) and weigh a hefty 3.3kg.

with 265mm wide x 39mm high x 288mm long, clearly it’s not smaller like PS4 slim which measured 275mm x 53mm x 305mm, but it will be significantly thinner.

And while the new PS4 consoles may spot new looks, can’t expect accessories to change radically.

With a light on the touch-pad, the new dualshok4 controller comes to this year but the design will be the same so the only real accessory addition is the
Play-station VR, which both machines will support.

PS4 Pro vs PS4 – supported games

The 4K-upscaling, HDR support, and future updates. The PS4 Pro may have just been unveiled, but the publishers and developers have already confirmed their
games will support the system.

PS4 Pro vs PS4 – Final decision: –

Both the PS4 Pro and new PS4 look like a fair value for what they depends on your gaming and media needs.

The PS4 Pro will support more cutting edge games and upcoming games also, but as both support the upcoming Play-station VR that will go for your
futuristic enjoyment.


There’s no doubt the PS4 Pro is a better, more capable machine. And, for £100 extra you’re getting something that is firmly future-proofed, what with its
support for 4K and HDR.

Though it depends on your budget and you’re upgrading plans. But if you still stuck on an aging PS3 or Xbox 360 you should put the PS4 Pro or new PS4 on
your shopping list you will get radically improved the gaming experience.

If you already own a PS4 that’s well and good the PS4 Pro feels like a wait and sees purchase. It’s improved processing power could be brilliant, but we
want to see more before we make such some important gaming decision.
