PS4 Slim And PS4 Pro Announced By Sony


Sony had a Playstation revealevent in New York last night to announce two new pieces of hardware: the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Neo.

They began by announcing the PS4 Slim. It will be the standard model for retail and is 30% smaller, consumes less power and has a rounder, but similar design form to the original PS4 model. It will be available to purchase in most territories from September 15 and will cost €299.

Next up was the announcement of the PS4 Pro (formally known as the PS4 Neo).

It will support 4K and HDR (High Dynamic Range) gaming. The PS4 Pro has an upgraded GPU and a CPU with a higher clock speed. Demos and videos for the likes of Spider-Man, For Honor, Horizon Zero Dawn and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare, showcased the better lighting, particle effects and detail the machine will offer.

The upcoming PlayStation VR will benefit from PS4 Pro, with higher framerates and crisper visuals. A firmware update will also release for current PS4 models, which will give them HDR support.
