    PlayStation Pro unveiled by Sony in New York

    Sony made a huge announcement last night at their PlayStation Meeting event in New York, as they unveiled the brand-new PlayStation Pro console.

    There had been rumours circulating for months prior to last night's event that an updated, more powerful console was on its way - with the code name of PlayStation Neo. The months of anticipation was finally brought to an end last night with the introduction of the 4k console.

    PlayStation Pro Specifications 

    The PlayStation Pro has 4K compatibility, along with a faster processor and enhanced graphics. If you own a 4K TV you will now be able to play games that have been rendered in 4K resolution - 3840 x 2160 - with High Dynamic Range technology.

    Sony are promising that the new consoles has twice the graphics processing power and that the PlayStation Pro will allow game developers to add much more detail to their games, including ambient lighting, particle effects and more detailed textures.

    The PlayStation Pro comes equipped with a 1TB hard drive and an additional USB port at the rear of the machine. The powerful console's design is quite similar to the current PS4, with the slanted design expanding to three blocks to show-off its powerful presence.

    We're about to go all technical on you but the new console's main processor consists of:

    • A single-chip customer processor
    • CPU - x86-64 AMD Jaguar - 8 Cores
    • GPU - 4.20 TFlops, AMD Radeon based graphics engine.

    Games

    Several of the upcoming Triple A titles are set to support the features of the PlayStation Pro, including FIFA 17 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Sony have also said that titles that are already available on the standard PS4 will have patches released so that they can be 'upgraded'.

    The company are also promising that even if you don't own a 4K TV, the PlayStation Pro will still have its benefits as all games will run in 1080p resolution.

    Don't worry if you are not planning on upgrading your PS4, according to Sony you will be not be left behind in the wake of the new release. Both consoles will still play the same discs so there will be no plans of stopping production of regular PS4 games.

    Apps

    Alongside the games on show in New York, a few apps were also confirmed. Both Netflix and Youtube announced unique 4K versions of their apps which have been specifically designed for the PlayStation Pro.

    This means you can watch all of your favourite Netflix shows on your shiny new console come November. We would expect plenty more video providers to update their content in the app store once the new console has been released.

    PlayStation Slim

    Alongside the PlayStation Pro, Sony also unveiled the PlayStation Slim which is set to replace the original PlayStation 4. This means that once it has been released it should just be known as the PlayStation 4.

    The new model is 16% lighter than the original according to Sony and has a reduced power consumption of 28%. The volume of the machine has also been reduced by 30% but still packs all of the same components as the original.

    The slim model has a sleek black design and will definitely not take up much room on your TV stand. The new PS4 will be released on September 16 with a RRP of £259 here in the United Kingdom.

    Release Information

    The new PlayStation Pro console is due for release on Thursday, November 10, with a price of £349. It it not yet known which bundles, if any, will be available at the launch of the new machine but I would guess that the likes of FIFA 17 and Call of Duty could be included alongside a console at some point.

    Ever since the lockdown started, I have used Zatu a lot to get a dozen or more we can play together as a family. The choice and service has been impeccable throughout, and next day delivery has been spot on. I cannot recommend Zatu enough.

    I found Zatu games through Board Game Prices and they were the cheapest for the two games I wanted. Their reasonably easily navigated site offered a discount for three games and induced me to make an additional purchase. Order was placed at about 4pm with delivery next day. Early the following day a large brown box duly arrived filled with lots of protective packaging and I had my games as promised! So to recap - pleasant purchase experience, effective service and timely delivery - all that was asked for! I will definitely be checking Zatu games again when I want more games! - Well Done!

    Excellent. Large range if competitively priced games. Ordered a few times now and despite the recent pandemic, the latest orders (like all of them) arrived very fast.
