PS4 Pro in South Africa! Details are here

We finally received some great news about PS4 Pro in Sa form Ster Kinekor Entertainment. I think it was a tough job to get it here before Christmas and even the battle of the price considering our local economy and exchange rate.

Below is the details of the announcement:

Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE) yesterday announced the launch date for PlayStation®4 Pro (PS4™ Pro), a high-end system that supports cutting-edge imaging technology to make games look richer and more detailed than ever before. PS4 Pro, which supports dynamic 4K gaming and 4K entertainment* is being prepared for delivery into retail over the coming days and will be in most Retail channels* from the 7th of December at a suggested retail price of R6999,99.  Blockbuster PS4 games, including Call Of Duty®: Infinite Warfare (Activision), Ratchet & Clank™, The Last of Us™ Remastered, and Uncharted™ 4: A Thief’s End (SIE Worldwide Studios), have been updated to take advantage of PS4 Pro’s increased power, taking the graphics and visual experience to all new heights.

“Ever since the announcement of the PlayStation 4 Pro we have been overwhelmed by the demand from gamers and it’s with much excitement to get this to them before Christmas, another leap in the world of  PlayStation”

  • said Mario Dos Santos C.E.O. of Ster Kinekor Entertainment.

PS4 Pro leverages the latest imaging technology by supporting dynamic 4K quality** resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR). The powerful CPU and GPU of PS4 Pro allows developers to create higher-quality games that output dynamic 4K quality* graphics with unprecedented visual precision, or smoother and more stable frame rates. Like all PS4 consoles, the system is also compatible with HDR imaging technology that produces more realistic, strikingly vivid visuals that are truer to the way the human eye naturally sees.

The introduction of PS4 Pro, which sits alongside the standard PS4, will provide consumers with more choice. Users can play every PS4 game on both PS4 Pro and the standard PS4, which was recently released in a slimmer and lighter model at a suggested retail price of R5199,99.  PlayStation®VR is compatible with both systems. PS4 Pro and the standard PS4 will also share the same user interface and have access to the same vibrant online community. Users are able to select their console of choice, based on their needs and preferences.

For gamers who own an HDTV that does not support either 4K or HDR, PS4 Pro provides a number of benefits, such as higher or more stable framerates, and enhanced graphics and environments.
