South Africans will finally be able to get their hands on the new PlayStation 4 Pro as Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it will be arriving in December 2016.
The New PlayStation 4 Pro will be available at most retailers from the 7th of December 2016 at a suggested retail price of R6999.99. The new PS4 is a high-end system that supports dynamic 4K gaming, in short, it makes games look richer and more detailed than before. Games such as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and The Last of Us Remastered are just a few of the games that will be taking advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro’s increased power.
PS4 Pro leverages the latest imaging technology by supporting dynamic 4K quality** resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR). The powerful CPU and GPU of PS4 Pro allows developers to create higher-quality games that output dynamic 4K quality* graphics with unprecedented visual precision, or smoother and more stable frame rates. Like all PS4 consoles, the system is also compatible with HDR imaging technology that produces more realistic, strikingly vivid visuals that are truer to the way the human eye naturally sees.
For gamers who own an HDTV that does not support either 4K or HDR, PS4 Pro provides a number of benefits, such as higher or more stable framerates, and enhanced graphics and environments.
Below are the specs for the PlayStation 4 Pro.
**Compatible 4K HDR TV required for 4K and HDR support. Dynamic 4K gaming outputted by graphic rendering or upscaled to 4K resolution; support varies by game title. 4K entertainment via 4K video streaming services only.
