Sony levels up PlayStation 4

By Kieren McCarthy, 7 Sep 2016

Sony has announced two upgraded models of its PlayStation 4 games console.

The PS4 Slim is the lower-end model and will cost $299; it will be available from September 15. The higher-end PS4 Pro has double the graphics processing power, comes with a 1TB hard drive, and will cost $399. It will be available in mid-November.

Both models will work with existing PS4 games, and some games will be upgraded to take advantage of the higher-resolution 4K images that the new console provides. It will also include HDR – which makes images more realistic.

Two of the most popular games – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare – will be available in updated form along with the new consoles' launches. ®
