Over the past few weeks, it seems as if there has been no shortage of news when it comes to the gaming world. Once again today, fans of gaming would not be disappointed as we were treated to the Playstation Meeting. Andrew House, the President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment took to the stage at the PlayStation theater in New York to share what’s to come in the near future from Sony.
The New PS4 (Slim)
The Revamped PlayStation console promises to be slimmer, lighter and more energy efficient.
PS4 Slim will be available September 15th
This will be the first console to support both 4K and HDR outputs, allowing gamers to see games as they were meant to. The console is boasting double the processing power available in current PS4 Models, allowing a smoother experience for all high-resolution games. The PS4 Pro will also offer a standard 1TB hard drive, assuring users more than enough space to transfer games and files from their previous PS4 console. Sony has also confirmed that PS4 discs will, in fact, be compatible with the PS4 Pro console, as expected.
Showing off both the 4K and HDR video demos were less than satisfying for those of us stuck at home watching it online or on Twitch. With that being said, you could still see some noticeable improvements throughout the demo.
Games shown included Spiderman, Tomb Raider, For Honor and Days Gone.
PS4 PRO will be available November 10th.
Horizon: Zero Dawn
We get to see some new footage of Guerrilla Games’ Horizon: Zero Dawn. Honestly, this game looks pretty cool. Who wouldn’t want to be hunting giant robotic dinosaurs?
Call of Duty
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be remastered to support 4K output.
We also see new 4K footage of Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare and it looks out of this world… sorry for the bad pun.
Mass Effect Andromeda
Finally a first look at the fourth installment of the Mass Effect Franchise.
Yes, you are reading that right. The online streaming giant will be 4K and HDR ready by the time the PS4 PRO launches. With over 600 hours and climbing, this is another excellent addition the PS4 Pro
So there you have it, a quick rundown of what happened today with Sony. Stay tuned as we will have a more extensive breakdown of some of these games and consoles soon.
