The PlayStation 4 Pro is the improved version of the PlayStation 4 that features improved hardware with 4.2 teraflops of processing power and it was released by the Sony Interactive Entertainment. This, improved version of the PlayStation 4, was released in early September 2016 and it is already considered to be by far the best video gaming consoles in the market. One of the main purposes of this improved version of PlayStation 4 is to provide possibility for certain games to be played at 4K. It must be said that all the games that were created for PlayStation 4 are also compatible with PlayStation Pro 4.
Even though this video gaming console will support 4K resolution, it will not provide the support of the 4K Blue-ray which may come as a surprise to many fans of this gaming platform. Besides the 4K features, PS4 Pro is also introducing the HDR or high dynamic range. The HDR offers a possibility to have a wide range of brightness, color and the contrast which is reflected on the quality of the graphics. With this version of the PlayStation 4 the GPU was also improved and in comparison to the standard PlayStation 4's 1.84 TFLP GPU, the PlayStation 4 Pro's GPU is 4.2 TFLP. Currently there are more than 700 video games available for PlayStation 4 but not all of them will be able to be played with PlayStation 4 Pro. At this moment only around 30 games are available for PlayStation 4 Pro and by the end of 2016 that number will rise to 45. The main reason for that is that the developers have yet to decide what they will do with the new specifications of the PS4 Pro, especially with high-quality textures, better resolution and higher frame rate.
The experience of playing games that have been adjusted for PS4 Pro is truly an amazing experience. The games like Uncharted 4 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare really looks stunning when played on this video game console. With the increased resolution the texture of the game looks much better especially if you connect your PS 4 Pro to the TV that supports the 4K resolution. The differences between playing games on PS4 and playing games on PS4 Pro are more than obvious. Besides resolution, another feature that was very much improved with PS 4 Pro is the frame rate. In this version of the console, the frame rate has been increased and now games are looking even more realistic than they did when played on PS4.
Besides providing a 4K resolution for the video game playing experience, PS4 Pro will offer the 4K resolution for other apps such as YouTube and Netflix. Because of that watching YouTube content and movies or TV shows on Netflix will be much better in comparison to previous installments of the PlayStation franchise. For the purpose of making the experience of playing PS4 games even better, the PS4 Pro is also introducing PlayStation VR (Virtual reality) games. One thing that needs to be mentioned in regards to PlayStation virtual reality games is that the games are not automatically updated to fit the PS VR. PlayStation 4 Pro is also introducing the new but it seems that the new controller was not improved except in the area of the aesthetics and looks.
The list of games that will support the PlayStation 4 Pro video game playing platform is getting bigger with every release. The games that have not been released yet will include the enhancements from the PS4 Pro into their original packaging. On the other hand, the games that have been released before the release of the PS4 Pro console will offer the same enhancements though the series of updates. Majority of the games will mostly attempt to use the 4K feature that the new PlayStation 4 Pro is providing in order to make the games better looking and more realistic than they were before.
Looking at the names of the games that will feature enhancement for the PlayStation 4 Pro we can see that some of the biggest and strongest names of the industry have already made enhancements and that they are already available for this console. Some of games that are or will be featured for PS 4 Pro are Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition, FIFA 17, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield 1, Watch Dogs 2, Fallout 4, Spider-Man, Firewatch, Helldivers, Hitman, RIGS Mechanized Combat League, Robinson: The Journey, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, The Last Guardian, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, God of War, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection, Gran Turismo Sport, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, NBA 2K17, World of Tanks and many others. On the other hand there are also those games that have officially announced that they will updating for the PlayStation 4 Pro consoles but the number of those games is small so far and some of those games are Destiny, Until Dawn and Until Dawn.
PlayStation 4 Pro has been characterized as the best console for playing video games and that characterization is very much true. The main advantage of the PS4 Pro version of the game is that offers much better resolution and HDR experience that any other video gaming consoles are offering. The experience of playing video games on PlayStation 4 Pro will be much more enjoyable mostly due to the 4K and HDR technology but also thanks to the higher frame rates that will make the game look even more realistic. Game developers have already recognized the potential of the PS4 Pro and they have already announced that their future installments will feature enhancements that will support playing those games on PlayStation 4 Pro. Even those developing companies that have release the game before the release of the new PlayStation console announced that the future updates will include enhancements that will make possible to play the game on the PlayStation 4 Pro video gaming console.
