GameTransfers reports that what fans can expect from the games that will be coming to the PS4 Pro are improvements on the stability of their frame rates and enhancements on resolution and effects. Some titles like “Rise of the Tomb Raider” will reportedly have a mode that would make use of the 1080p resolution of TVs. The site also says PS4 Pro games that will come with visual improvements will have an indication on their cover.
The lists were revealed following the unveiling of the PlayStation 4 Pro and the slimmer PS4 during the PlayStation Meeting 2016 in New York on Wednesday. According to the official PlayStation blog, the main goal behind the launch of PS4 Pro is to deliver innovation in visuals and graphics to the gaming community through a console that supports the high-tech 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR) and smoother frame rates.
Previously rumored to be called the PlayStation Neo, the $399.99 gaming console debuted to underwhelming feedback, with Rolling Stone commenting that the PS4 Pro is a refresh of the PS4 that banks on “prettier pictures” than bringing distinct hardware to players.
Forbes also alludes to the same issue with the PS4 Pro by stating that the console is more of upgrading to an Ultra-HD TV with HDR, adding that Sony’s new console is about to help boost 4K television sales for it requires the latest TV technology to show off its improved feature.
