It’ll also support 4K video playback for streaming services like Netflix. However, it won’t be able to play 4K Blu-ray.

This HDR support will be patched into both these new models and original PS4 from as soon as next week.

“Our vision is to present a clear choice to the gamer and we are steadfast in our commitment to being the best place to play.”

“Today’s announcements are testament of this. With PlayStation 4 Pro, we look forward to introducing our players to our most powerful home console with the offering of the first class 4K and HDR technology. At 30% reduced size, the new model PS4 offers great value for the gamer and will also join the HDR revolution from next week,” he said.

The Playstation 4 Pro lands on Australian shores from November 10th at an RRP of $559.95.
