Sony said in its launch announcement that this system will support all 4K resolutions, but in that sense, it doesn’t mean that it is advisable to run all games in native 4K.

What is it?

The motto of launching the latest upgrade by Sony is to let this PS4 Pro sit alongside and complement the standard PS4 as it will enhance the sales indirectly.

With the PS4 Pro, developers get silky-smooth performance enhancing their VR experiences. It also supports high dynamic range content. Besides that, all the existing games will receive updates in the future enabling support for the PS4 Pro.

How does it work?

Sony has mandated that all games of the PlayStation 4 platform will be working on both the new and old consoles.  The new models will not feature exclusive play modes between consoles. Furthermore, they also mentioned that system’s interface will look and act exactly the same.

All the core play experience will be the same on either console while the new model will get to see enhanced graphics to give a better touch.
