    Sony's mysterious PS4 Neo has been officially revealed as the PS4 Pro, and will be releasing this year on November 10, 2016. The console will cost $399USD/£349GBP, and will support 4K gaming and videos. Playstation VR will get a huge visual boost on the Pro, as well as older games getting "forward support" to allow them to be played in 4K resolution.

    :arrow: You can see the entire conference, and GBAtemp's roundup of the event here.

    I might go for the PS4 Pro instead of the normal or the slim. I don't really care about the graphics, the thing that makes me interested in it is the boosted clock speed, which enables games to run at a higher framerate. I hate games with choppy framerates.

    Forward compatibility? What about backward compatibility? No thanks. I rather save the money for the nx.

    Ugly as sin but I will upgrade as it's a reasonable price and will bring huge improvements to PSVR.

    Meh. Looks ugly. Don't think I'll bother changing out my original ps4. Will just stick with what I'm doing now (ps4 for exclusives, pc for everything else).

    No ps5 will be released since the ps4 pro will be upgradable for future support.

    I've also heard Sony gamers have got their eyes fps-limited to 30 fps :unsure:

    Why would you need 60fps when you can have the original 24fps cinematic experience™
