Sony has unveiled their two newest consoles, one is high end and the other one is for budget conscious gamers. The high-end PlayStation 4 Pro is better equipped to handle 4K graphics and virtual-reality content.
The new high-end model known as “Neo” and now called “PlayStation 4 Pro,” cost about $399 and it will be released on November 10, 2016. It will have a faster processor, more storage (1TB hard drive), and enhanced graphics for 4K resolution games and video, according to Sony during the presentation held at the PlayStation Theater in New York’s Times Square.
The PlayStation 4 Pro once it is released will undoubtedly be the most powerful game console. Its GPU (powered by AMD's new Polaris technology) is more than twice as fast as the original PS4, and it sports a faster clock speed as well.
"PS4 Pro is not intended to blur the line between console generations," Mark Cerny, the chief architect for the PS4, said on stage. "Instead, the vision is to take the PS4 experience to extraordinary new levels."
Sony also introduced the smaller, more energy-efficient PlayStation 4 which will estimated to go on sale on September 15, 2016 and it will cost about $299. This slimmer and more smaller console will be replacing the original 4th generation PlayStation unit that was released last November 2013 at $399. Both versions of the PlayStation 4 will have the capability to handle high dynamic range imaging (HDR) according to Sony.
