Sony Interactive Entertainment will soon release a rather special edition version of the PlayStation 4 Pro although you might find one hard to come by. Pre-orders are currently sold out.
Still has the same graphics as base ps4 tho so I'll pass
Uhhh I’m pretty sure it’s the Pro so no.
Reading is hard
Either you are a troll or ignorant. PS4 Pro 500 million edition has the Pro in the name for a reason. And is because is a damn PS4 Pro aka the premium version of the OG PS4/Slim which have better graphics. Is like saying Xbone X still have the same graphics as the base Xbone.
"Pro"...ha...Sony 9;s marketing got you good! Its only just a bit better then the original PS4 if you look at the resolutions being posted about the games. Most games aren't nowhere native 4K, except for Indy titles and maybe handful of actual PS4 titles. Do some research instead of gobbling up what you're told. I don't recall PS4 Pro having any more advanced graphic features to improve lighting etc. Slighty sharper image..yay. Oh I forgot about the amazing "HDR" aka improved contrast and colours etc. Buy a yourself a decent TV and configure it properly and you won't have washed out blacks in darker scenes or lame colours. *Sighs* FYI i'm primarily a Nintendo Fan although I have also gotten myself into PC gaming properly since 2013 before you start throwing me some "Xbone" crap in my direction...
@navii87 Nintendo fanboy, MS fanboy, doesn't make a difference. A fanboy is a fanboy. Stick to your Nintendo and PC. Neither one has anything to do with the pspro. And they say sony fanboys are bad. 😕
"Most games aren't nowhere native 4K" Don't believe the poster said most games were...or even some. It can produce higher resolutions though, which it then uses checkerboarding to get it up to 4K. The same technique is used in most X1X games as well, although the source resolution is typically higher before the checkboarding...or sparse rendering as MS calls it. " I don't recall PS4 Pro having any more advanced graphic features to improve lighting etc" The PS4 has more than twice the computing power in the GPU. That will enable better images to be produced, as well as increased resolutions. More importantly, to improve lighting and what not...since its what you cite... PS4P has more than twice the pixel fill rate and 2.5X the texture fill rate of the OGPS4. PS4P has more memory available to the GPU/CPU due to the added 1GB of DDR3 for OS swapping. Some elements of the new GPU in the PS4P were adopted from Polaris, which has better shader functions...shader functions having a direct influence on lighting performance. PS4P has double the GCN cores and an increased clock speed over the PS4. Maybe instead of just spewing nonsense, take your own advice and do some research. And even a well tuned non-HDR TV can not match a un-tuned HDR TV, and HDR TV's need much less tuning out of the box....mostly just adjusting the brightness. That's kind of the point of HDR....no need to tune. Maybe being a Nintendo fan who has systems that haven't produced the best looking graphics since the N64, and primarily playing on PC where HDR is mostly useless right now, you don't realize what a difference it makes. Even on the X1X, the HDR does more for the image than increasing the resolution does.
Is being wrong a hobby of yours or something?
N4G always takes the bait.
It's a PRO, how much more of an upgrade would you like? They could've easily just made a SLIM version instead...
Shimon - You do realize that the best looking anand selling exclusives are on PS4. The Pro is just a little gravy for those that want it. Surely English isnt your first language, so I'll give you some credit.
Shineon, it sucks you feel that way. Trust me, sony will be just fine while you continue to spite them. I have plenty of vita games and enjoy it. The pro looks great on my 4K HDR set in comparison to the base model. If its unsatisfactory for you, theres always the xb1x. For $500, youll have sharper multiplats and backwards compatibility with older xbox titles. Missing out on the best exclusives offered by a console maker is all on you
It has better looking games than any other console. So yeah. OT: this console looks really stylish with the accents.
@Shineon Horizon Zero Dawn looks better than anything MS has put out in the past few years. Certainly better than anything they've put out with X1X support. The upgrade on the PS4P is pretty good, but is it overly noticeable? I'd say not really, because Horizon Zero Dawn looks better than anything MS has put out in the past few years with X1X support even on the base PS4. i won't even get into God of War. I said once that MS was going to have a hard time convincing people the X1X was going to look better, because Sony delivers some of the best looking games this gen. On top of that, the difference in image quality between the PS4P and X1X are even less noticeable to the average person than they are between the PS4 and PS4P. I could have gone this whole gen and been perfectly content with the base PS4. But I have a PS4P, so whatever, no use worrying about the spent money now. I'm even fine with my OGX1 for what few games I may play on it. Sony got me with the VIta too, but you know what...I played that system a lot. I would have liked more from Sony first party, but again, no use crying about it now. One failed product in a long line of success won't make me swear off PS.
Im trollin lol its the truth thats why I sold mine for 250$ because it was soooo disappointing!Ugly graphics who wants to see 1080p textures in checkerboard 4k? The Pro is trash Ps4 slim is better at least the textures match the rez.Soupstation No!
Your obviously trolling.
Go play on your $500 console games that are over 10 years old and still look the same.... and stop being a hater
clearly you can't read
Clearly I didnt read im just exposing PlayStation cash grab strategies but yall still chocking take a break let your mouth rest mane
shineon "Clearly I didnt read im just exposing PlayStation cash grab strategies" Dumbest comment ever... What's wrong with a company Making money?? are you giving them Money??. NO.. So shouldn't worry you.. Move on...
@Shineon Wow! A Company selling us something? How dare they!
Dumbest comment of the decade
Sadly.....that's not actually true. Its up there though.
that’s not the point it’s for the collectors I was gutted I couldn’t get my hands on one
if you aren't using the Pro on a 4K TV then the upgrades are going to be limited. But if you have a 4K TV the differences are astounding. Go look at Horizon or God of War running on a 4K TV with a Pro and compare it to the base PS4 running on a 1080p TV. The differences will amaze you.
They're using supersampling now which actually can improve the image quality on 1080 displays. Some reports state its quite a lot of improvement.
@rainslacker - supersampling definitely helps, but it's not going to make a world of difference. You get some smoother pixels sure, and it definitely can help clean up the image. But when you jump up to 4K the differences are ridiculous.
the king of disagrees !
I Love It and @Neonridr My 4k tv is a Sony Bravia. The diffrence is not astounding what you mean the slight sharpness because nothing else is going on the textures dont match the resolution.Coming from a PC thats can handle 1080p very well along with many other graphical effects is a downgrade the Pro is not a supercharged ps4 as advertised its a piece of 💩and you know it.The base Ps4 is almost a Pro then since you cant even use zoom to spot the diffrence in most titles the Pro is a scam!!!And @Ceaser yes I did I bought all my PlayStations brand new from PlayStation X PS2, PsP,Ps3,skipped base ps4 got the Ps4 Pro sold pro the pro is the first PlayStation Ive ever gotten rid of good riddens you are the weakest link goodbye you piece of 💩
Don't pre-orders open up on the 24th?!
Did you read the article?
This is in the UK. Has the 24th been confirmed for the US?
Now if only Nintendo would release some translucent purple joycons....
For as much as I'd like to get one, I'm not going to break my head finding something so limited, scalpers alone will kill it for the average consumer. They should've made way more, they'll sell regardless...oh well I'll just enjoy the pics I guess...sigh... 😥
I think I rather wait for the PS5, hopefully in 2020 or earlier..
Ps5 definitely not coming out 2019.I think ps5 will come out fall 2020 or later.
And you're basing that on what exactly? Gut feeling? Because I think it IS coming out in 2019, have no evidence for that, just an idea...
This is strictly a collectors item
I don't think many people understand this, it sold out in Aus in under an hr. EBAY already ha listings as high as $1800 Aus.
The head of Sony Interactive has already confirmed it for 2021
Another 50k PS4's sold. Will we hit 100m by 2019?
It probably will. How many shares do you own?
I own the shared hope that more console sales = more funding for AAA Sony studios to improve their games even further. Do you have reason why someone shouldn't be happy to see a console selling well?
My brother has one of these bad boys pre-ordered, curious to see it!
You're probably not going to even see it though, much less actually play with it. With such a ridiculously limited number of such consoles available (50.000 units, not one more!), the temptation to immediately resell them on ebay with a huge markup far outweighs in anybody's mind the prospect of keeping it for oneself to enjoy it or using it even remotely, out of fear of not making as much money as possible...
Not surprised. PS4 is extremely popular these days.
Already on ebay for $1000.
$1800 in Aus.
One at $15k atm
Just saw one for $2,999! Ridiculous.
"But, but, but lack of crossplay is hurting Sony brand... 😭😭😭&qu ot;
In Europe. They haven’t done pre orders in the states
Funny how it's sold out when I have not seen it for preorder at any major retail. All I want is the controller :-)
keep in mind this is for the uk only atm. no NA or other details have been released.
I think the controller is not limited edition, right? just the Pro
Correct - the controller will be sold separately, how long for I dont know.
I really wish I could have bought this.
Pre Orders for US are 24th. This article is for the UK crowd....just to clarify
These things of course will disappear fast. Just to turn up on eBay not long after
I want the controller
It'll be available separately, Sony has confirmed this.
PlayStation is eating mfs lunches this generation. Microsoft is going to have to come straight from krypton with some powerful stuff next gen OR Sony just completely goes nuts. These customers will be customers again next gen and possibly even faster.
Couldn't agree more, but seeing as PlayStation is the darling at Sony I can them going all in. I'm actually quite confident they'll continue their dominance into next gen.
yeah.....we had exactly the same thought during the PS2 era.
All they have to do is make a good console, price it reasonably, have a decent launch lineup, and keep doing what they're doing, and it'll be MS that'll have to do all the work to convince people to go with them instead. Otherwise, Sony can just keep "coasting"(although that isn't the right word to use since they're making lots of great games), and if they have BC at the start of the gen for PS4, then i think they'll hit the gen running like they did this gen.
How's that even possible... I don't understand why ANYONE would even want a PS Given, you know, NO CROSS PLAY!!!! (Insert some satanic ritual against Sony here) it's the end Of Sony as we know it:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( because CROSS PLAY!!!!!!!!!
Damn! I didnt even know it went up for pre order. Fingers crossed for the spider man variant
It's soooooooooooooo beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
