Sony launches two new versions of PlayStation 4

New Play Station Camera

The PS4 Pro supports 4K and HDR in gameplay in addition to video playback.

"So to declare this as the new paradigm for console gaming and that this is going to be the way for generation after generation would be a foolish thing to do". These are great areas to focus on because they don't alter the fundamental gameplay. You'll still need a 4K HDR ready TV.

Sony's New York-traded shares fell almost 1 percent on Thursday afternoon. It seems the mid-gen refresh won't have much of an impact on the Share feature after all. Although the PS4 Pro has the ability to play 4K content, it doesn't support 4K blu-rays, something that the Xbox One Scorpio can do quite handily.

Video game console manufacturers are now releasing incremental updates more frequently, rather than major updates spaced several years apart.

Sony unveiled a slimmer PS4 and PS4 Pro at an event on Wednesday, three years after the original PS4 was released. It then surprised viewers by confirming that HDR (High Dynamic Range) will be patched in to ALL current PS4s some time next week.

Of course, your television has to be able to support HDR for it to work.

The Pro will come packed in with a larger 1TB hard drive, double the GPU power of the base model PS4 and technology adapted from AMD's Polaris graphical architecture.

With that in mind, here's every demo Sony showcased on stream in 4K.

PS4 Pro is being compared to Project Scorpio and Xbox One S consoles. If you don't have a TV that supports 4K, you won't be taking advantage of the PS4 Pro's higher-resolution output at all. Watch the PS4 Pro 4K Games here. Among these benefits include consistent framerates, more character detail, improved visual quality and enhanced processing power. Games that have been run on the PS4 Pro does present a cleaner experience with steadier framerates, but the leap in terms of quality may be lacking that extra punch for an entirely different device.
