Sony used its PlayStation Meeting to introduce the PS4 Pro, known by gamers as the PS4 Neo.
The console will boast more than twice the GPU power than the original PS4 and comes with a 1TB hard drive.
The console will support 4K games and streamed video, 4K upscaling of content and high dynamic range (HDR). The Pro will not support 4K Blu-ray playback, however.
Sony’s Mark Cerny also confirmed that Sony will be “providing a number of mechanisms for easily transferring your game library and entitlements from the standard model to the new console.”
The console will be available from 10 November 2016. It comes with a price tag of $399 USD or $559.95 AUD.
Documents on NeoGAF and Twitter suggest the Pro’s GPU can operate at 4.20 teraflops and possesses 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.
