PS4 Pro: Ben Heck’s recent teardown explains why there’s no 4K Blu-ray player
The reason? Cost savings, basically.
A recent episode of The Ben Heck Show is all about the PS4 Pro… and to a lesser extent, its lack of a 4K Blu-ray player.
Heck also compares the PS4 Pro to the PS4 Slim and the Xbox One S as part of his teardown, as you can see below:
According to Heck, the PS4 Pro’s Blu-ray drive is the same as the PS4 Slim’s, which explains its lack of 4K support.
The PS4 Pro is available now.
