One more day to go and the much-awaited PS4 Pro will be out in the market. Before its launch, a lot of comparisons between Sony's new console and Microsoft's Xbox have been made. It has even been pitted against its predecessors, the PS4 and PS4 Slim. While the other consoles might have features that are better than the PS4 Pro, here are some of the Pros biggest advantages against its competitions.
The biggest sell-on of the console is perhaps its 4K graphics coupled with HDR technology which will give games and movies a very remarkable clarity and color. This means the visuals will be much closer to its real-life color. For example, the Ferrari in Gran Turismo will be displayed in its real red color rather than the fake red shade players have been used to seeing. This visual enhancement will not only benefit new game titles but old ones as well.
Some of the games who have already received PS4 Pro support include Rise of the Tomb Raider, inFAMOUS, and The Last of Us: Remastered. Sony has announced that there are 30 plus game titles with PS4 Pro support which will be released alongside the console. The game titles is expected to grow more to 45 before the year ends.
However, there is a downside to the 4K and HDR technology of the PS4 Pro. Its real capabilities will not be truly enjoyed unless you use a 4K HDTV. Thus, buying a 4K HDTV should be on your wishlist as well if you're planning to buy a PS4 Pro. On the upside, you can just store your games at the moment in the hard drive and wait until you got your 4K HDTV.
Design-wise, the PS4 Pro took after the PS4 Slim with pushable buttons, curved edges, and a black matte finish. It also has a 3.0 USB port just in case you want to give the PSVR a try as well.
