Sony is ready to launch the PS4 Pro, the much powerful and somewhat bigger console on November 10th.
With days to go before the launch, the company confirmed that there will be about 39 great titles fully optimized for the upgraded console.
Justifying a new console purchase during the holiday season is no easy task, especially when it costs little higher and plays the same games as the original PS4 does. But, if you are looking for improved CPU, GPU power, HDR performance, 4K support and best upscaling capabilities, going with the PS4 Pro is a no-brainer. Besides, the console promises to offer PC-like framerates in most AAA titles and improved graphics quality in exclusive games like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
The list of games that support Pro features is quite long and it goes up to 39 titles at the moment. Sony has planned well ahead and will be adding a lot of new games to the list. Those that were developed and launched before the PS4 Pro console announcement will be optimized to make better use of the hardware available. Upcoming titles like Call of Duty Infinite Warfare will have those features built-in and will be shipped exclusively for demanding gamers.
From a gamer perspective, there won’t be any confusion at all. The PS4 games will ship with the same box for all three consoles, the PS4, PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro. However, when you install and run the game it will be able to detect the hardware as the Pro machine and run accordingly. The graphical quality, frame rates and other improvements will be applicable only if you own the most powerful console in the world, according to Sony’s statement.
A bunch of Call of Duty games including Black Ops 3, Modern Warfare Remastered and Infinite Warfare is getting the special treatment. Apart from AAA titles like Mafia III, Shadow of Mordor, Rise of the Tomb Raider and all the Elder Scrolls games, there are lots of indie and small time games that are being upgraded with better graphics and frame rates. PS4 exclusives like Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4 and all PS VR games will support full HDR in 1080p upscaled to 4K if your television supports it.
In their blog statement, Sony added that all their first party games getting launched in 2017 including Days Gone, Horizon Zero Dawn and Gravity Rush 2 will be optimized first for PS4 Pro console. The disparity that PC gamers always face based on their hardware is now upon console gamers as well!
