The Playstation 4 Pro
We're in the era of upgrade, upgrade, and upgrade some more. These are the times we live in. No surprise that the gaming industry is falling in line and moving with the business. The PS4 Pro was announced this Wednesday, as a graphical and power upgrade to the original PS4.
To keep things simple the PS4 Pro essentially is you upgrading your PC to get the best possible quality you can get out of your system. This is clearly going to become the norm. Long gone will be the days big gaming companies like Sony and Microsoft (am I forgetting one?) pump out one system, and then wait 5 years or so and pump out the next. There is money to be made in the upgrade, and they are going to make it. The PC gaming market plays a hand in this. Finally the gaming industry giants take notice to how often PC gamers happily upgrade their PC with the latest in greatest in graphic cards and processors in order to optimize their gaming experience.
The 'upgrading' of current gen consoles is the naturally next step in the gaming console race, and the PS4 Pro looks to be worth its weight. The system comes with the ability to play games in 4K, and has an HDR option (which will become available on the PS4 original as well in a future firmware update). Through the tech demos you able to see just how enhanced games are graphically on the PS4 Pro, and although some of the games won't be able to reach 4K they will still far exceed the 1080P limitation of the PS4 original. The PS4 pro comes this November at a $399 price point. If you're looking to push your current gen games to their absolute potential, on par with the PC gamers experience, then the PS4 Pro is a no brainer.
