PS4 Pro can capture screenshots in 4K, however, it can record video in 1080p only. This was confirmed by the Sony Interactive Entertainment during the PlayStation Meeting when the upcoming console was officially announced.

Following the confirmation, Sony has received a number of questions regarding the features of the upgraded hardware, including the details of its specs that are reportedly almost twice as powerful as the original PS4 console. According to reports, the PS4 Pro has the ability to support 4K video playback due to its enhanced components. However, it was also revealed that the players can only record 1080p video at 30 FPS.

In addition to the PS4 Pro limitations, the players can run the Remote Play and Share Play at 1080p up to 60 FPS, but only dependent upon the network conditions, VG247 reported. Also, DailyMotion and YouTube are reported to support 1080p at 60 FPS, and Twitch can only allow video for up to 1080p at 30 FPS.

According to reports, the standard PS4 can capture 1080p screenshots and 720p at 30 FPS, which means the Share feature has been enhanced on the upcoming PS4 Pro. Based on this, the confirmation regarding the system's inability to work should be considered by the fans, as the 4K Blu-Ray disc player may likely disappoint them, since they are expecting for a more powerful console.

Meantime, PS4 Pro limitations have prompted the Microsoft to compare the Sony console from its Project Scorpio and Xbox One S systems and eventually claim that the latter are the superior devices.

Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if the PS4 Pro's inability to allow video footage beyond 1080p resolution with its Share feature will have a negative impact on the systems sales upon its release. Also, experts believe that it is likely that the upcoming release of these upgraded platforms could sustain the rivalry among these consoles indefinitely.

PS4 Pro is scheduled for release on Nov. 10, 2016, GameRant reported. Watch Sony's reveal of the PS4 Pro here.
