Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro is a powerhouse with 4K graphics

The new console boasts a faster processor and more powerful graphics at a $399 price tag.

“Tonight it’s my pleasure to introduce to you the new Playstation 4 line-up.”

Sony’s beefed up PS4 console is finally here and its firepower may even impress some PC gamers.

On the outside, the PS4 Pro looks burly, like a Mayan pyramid. And the look fits considering the console’s pumped up performance.

The PS4 Pro boasts 4K resolution, that’s 4 times better than today’s high definition. To handle that extra load, the system comes with a faster processor and more powerful graphics.

In raw numbers, the PS4 Pro is capable of 4.2 trillion calculations per second, which is more than double that of the previous model.

It also comes with a 1 terabyte hard drive, double the current capacity, and supports HDR, which should mean more detail in dark areas of the picture.

“PS4 Pro is not intended to blur the lines between console generations, instead the vision is to take the PS4 experience to extraordinary new levels.”

It’s the first console to support 4K gaming, but you’ll need a 4K TV to experience the extra resolution. The good news is that most 4K TV’s also come with HDR.

In addition, not every game will support 4K, but 4K streaming is already available through Netflix, Amazon, Youtube, and other services.

“I’m happy to announce that a new Netflix app will be available for PS4 Pro at launch and by the end of the year, 600 hours of 4K content will be available on Netflix.”

Sony is also rolling out a more compact version of the Playstation 4.

The PS4 Pro will be available on November 10th for $399 and the slimmer PS4 will hit the shelves on September 15th for $299.

By launching the console this year, Sony is getting a head start on the 4K gaming market, but Microsoft’s Project Scorpio is expected to be more powerful.
