    Patches that update existing PlayStation 4 games with 4K HDR support may cost money, Sony Interactive Entertainment executive Masayasu Ito has indicated. Speaking to Game Impress Watch, as translated by Kotaku, Ito suggested that publishers may decide to charge for these patches.

    "It will be different for each title," Ito said when asked if the 4K HDR patches will cost money. "I believe it will depend on the thinking of each licensee."

    In his statements, he suggested whether patches are monetised "will vary" for each one of Sony's own titles. The interviewer later addressed third-party publishers, asking, "What you’re saying is that there will be titles that have a fee [for the patch] and [patches for the] titles that are free?"

    "That is correct," Ito replied.

    It must be noted that since the interview was conducted in Japanese and translated into English, some information or context may have been lost in translation. GameSpot has contacted Sony for further clarification.

    4K and HDR are two of the major advantages players will have if they purchase a PS4 Pro. The console was announced during the PlayStation Meeting on September 7 and will launch on November 10, 2016 and cost $399/£349/A$560. It features a 1TB hard drive, doubled GPU power, and boosted CPU clockspeed.
