    As expected, Sony today unveiled its new, more powerful PlayStation console, which is called PlayStation 4 Pro. The console will compliment the standard PS4 and sit alongside it. The name was picked to show that it is part at the current version of the console aimed at the higher-end gamers, as opposed to entirely new architecture.

    During the PlayStation Meeting event, Andrew House discussed Sony's decision to pursue 4K and HDR, which he said are "natural" paths of progression for visuals. He went on to introduce lead architect Mark Cerny, who said Sony's vision is to "take the PS4 experience to extraordinary new levels."

    "Our goal is to deliver high-fidelity graphical experiences," he added. "We aim to provide developers with tools to further their vision."

    Among the upgrades in the PS4 Pro are doubled GPU power and technology adapted from the AMD Polaris architecture. These allow the PS4 Pro to reach resolutions "not thought possible on consoles." Additionally, the CPU clockspeed has also been boosted.

    Cerney went on to show off a number of games running on PS4 Pro, which was shown to attendees on a 4K capable display. The games included Marvel and Insomniac Games' Spider-Man, Ubisoft's For Honor, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

    Cerney described the new resolution capabilities of the PS4 Pro as "transformative."

    He went on to talk about HDR, using Days Gone to show off how it can be used to represent "a level of photorealism that you've never experienced in a game." Cerny said Sony doesn't expect developers to support HDR from the outset, but believes those that do will see huge visual improvements.

    Other games shown at higher-resolution and using HDR include Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Infamous: Last Light, Shadow of Mordor, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

    "You don't need a 4K or HDR TV to experience the benefit from PS4 Pro," Cerny explained, saying games will know what display and developers can tailor their experiences to fit. The extra power can be used to boost visual density or make other improvements to visuals that are capable of being enjoyed on non-4K TVs using the PS4 Pro.

    Patches for "over a half-dozen Sony titles" are in the work to take advantage of PS4 Pro, and third-party developers are also working on improvements to their games.

    Although Sony said all Existing games will continue to work with the PS4 Pro, which will have a 1TB hard drive. It is optimised for 4K and HDTVs.

    Sony first announced the new system in June. Days before E3, Sony confirmed it was in the works but declined to share anything more than broad, high-level comments regarding it. It said at the time it would be a more powerful system with 4K support that plays the same games as the existing PS4. It also claimed it would continue to be sold alongside the standard PS4, serving as a complement to that console. Shortly thereafter, Microsoft revealed the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio at E3. Sony has largely been silent on the subject of its new console since its announcement.
