It is expected of Sony to roll out an almost identical, much slimmer version of each PlayStation it puts out. Yesterday at the event in New York, Sony revealed that the slimmer version of the PlaySation 4 will cost you $299 (117,000?) and should be available on the 15th of September in most stores.
In functionality, the newer PlayStation 4 version doesn’t differ much from the previous version but with the new sleek design, it does look a lot compact and more appealing. The major difference comes in shape of the redesigned light bar of the DualShock 4 which is now visible from the front.
Now for the big news, there is going to be an upgraded PS4 console ready to ship November 10. The next generation PlayStation 4 is a huge upgrade on the former with a faster processor, better graphics, and support for 4K resolution. Although the gaming company will still continue production of every other PS4 version, the PlayStation Pro is specially designed for Pro gamers and is powered by an upgraded GPU and comes with a 1TB hard drive. This PlayStation version will feature better graphics for games which will be released for all PlayStation 4 versions. If you’re a Pro gamer, $399 (151,000?) shouldn’t be too much for all of this.
A new firmware update that allows HDR display is coming for all PlayStation 4 users and will be available. The PlayStation Pro will support HDR gaming and video playback but nothing has been said for regular base models. Either way, you'll need a television that supports HDR if you’re going to view the improved images.
No telling when these new consoles are going to hit Nigeria but I presume we should be seeing both by December.
