Hey welcome back to the ultimate tech news show on global your host and the Best PlayStation meeting just took place just ended it was the big unveiling of their project code-named PlayStation 4 neo position for me is actually called the PlayStation 4 pro for professionals own now you not need professionals just kidding it’s perfect I don’t know I don’t know the logic behind the naming of that thing but whatever i’ll let’s talk about their first announcement though which was the position for slim and had leaked last week and the week before that maybe it’s going to cost 299 which i think is a great price for a PlayStation 4 system PlayStation 4 is it it’s my favorite console this generation so far and it’s coming out at 299 so you know 300 bucks 300 euros are 250 pounds i believe you know the usual price once you converted to your own used currency it’s great price for best PlayStation 4 system of course what we were all waiting for was the unveiling of the best PlayStation pro and then knowing exactly what this was so they didn’t go into too many specifics tech wise.
so we don’t really know what the hardware that’s on this box is they did talk about and in upgraded GPU boost clock rate for the cpu and a bigger hard drive so i will be a one terabyte HDD also talked about how easy it will be for you to transfer your own games from the current position for to the position for pro in case you decide to upgrade the system will come out this year still in two months’ time November temp 2016 and will be priced at 399 that is very surprising because one of their main selling points was that games are now we’re going to be able to run at 4k resolution and in it doesn’t seem to be high up rest 4k the way they’ve been talking to about doing the presentations like yeah we’re going to have more pixels and it’s crazy that they’re going to be able to do that with a four-hundred-dollar console whether they end up hitting that goal or not whether you’re skeptical or not that is what they’re saying games are going to run at 4k on this 400 bucks a box so hopefully they hid it because that would be incredibly impressive though I am a little bit skeptical how do you fit the hardware to run games at 4k native on such a cheap box and it is going to be impressive as they do pull it off and hey fingers crossed I’m optimistic you guys know a lot of the games that you already own will be upgraded to mention a bunch of them the oldest game.
they mentioned was a shadow of murder also talked about the infamous what is at first light that standalone dlc thanks of course internal for was a part of that list and a few others as well now the upgrade and seems to be on a game-by-game basis maybe not all of them are going to be a pretty 4k but most of them will be upgraded to use HDR high dynamic range better colors better contrast that kind of stuff they actually explained a lot of what HDR is in a way that Microsoft maybe should have done and this year’s e3 because they just assumed everyone will know which dr was or if they didn’t they will Google it which I certainly did because i had no idea what it was but most people just came out of that confused like what why should i buy an Xbox one asks what is HTR exactly i don’t know and then they were too lazy to Google that stuff yeah that they actually went in in detailed explain what HDR was they showed comparison side-by-side turned it on and off that was fun and surprisingly enough there will be a firmware updates coming to PlayStation 4 .
next week which will enable all PlayStation force to have HDR on their games for hd2 if you have an HDTV this box that i own right here you can see itself camera will be HDR compatible I didn’t know they could do that i mean I’m not a tech guy but i didn’t know this thing was capable of doing that it’s like flicking switch and now way HDR is here that’s awesome right that’s absolutely free if you already own a PlayStation 4 which means I mean you would only upgrade to a position for pro if you’re really into that 4k stuff because the HDR self will be here you know it’s kind of unclear whether or not games will run better on the position for pro I mean you assume they work with these increased specs right but their focus has just been 4k better graphics and it’s weird because you know that’s been the pc kind of field for a long time.
if you walk into that graphical fidelity you probably are a pc gamer already or partially pc gamer if you care that much about graphics so this is PlayStations trying to get into that pc demographic maybe but that’s losing quest right species you can just upgrade them as you wish there will always be more powerful and then consoles just because you can upgrade a much on a much more regular basis and also 4k TVs not really standard anyway I don’t I don’t even I don’t think this is a 4k TV honestly so it’s going to be weird because you’re going to have to buy a TV to take advantage of the PlayStation 4 pro and they didn’t really pitch this product for people who don’t have 4k TV so I i don’t know if i should buy one because I I’m not planning on buying 4k TV there’s a lack of 4k content out there you know most stuff is not on 4k not yet anyway maybe someday we’ll be worth it maybe PlayStation 4 neo is enough for me to take a step and by a 4k TV but that’s a huge investment that not everyone is willing to make I just think Sony could have sold me a little bit around this you know not just me obviously I’m talking about me personally but my case applies to many people which they should have just said he if you don’t have a 4k TV here’s why you should buy the position for you or for position for pro he was such a better name though god dammit here’s what it brings to people that don’t have a 4k TV here’s the advantages it brings you know the high dynamic range is going to be on this box already side and I don’t need the new system for that.
I’m going to be dividing back and forth whether or not to purchase this I’m going to be looking at the information coming out in the next few weeks the live stream still going as you can see they’re talking about some of the games that will be present are on our will take advantage of this position for pro stuff so yeah in the coming weeks and I’m guessing more details will come around and I’ll make my decision then got two months until November tense you guys let me know if you’re kind of in the same situation or if you are already sold for going to buy a PlayStation 4 pro if you’re going to upgrade your PlayStation 4 to a place for pro trying to sell your original system or if you are jumping into the place for family right now you guys let me know all about that in comments I’d love to know what kind of audience we have and where do you guys stand and all on all this you know I’m it confuses it i don’t think this is an automatic cell not yet anyway right before the PlayStation meeting that you know apple head it’s also press conference where they revealed a new iPhone some video game stuff came out of there apparently Nintendo is making another mobile game and it’s in Mario mobile game it’s super Mario run it doesn’t control like the traditional Mario games it’s kind of like flappy bird you know just tap to jump in the hole the longer you hold down the screen build the higher the Mario jumps yeah that’s a great description words okay we got a new Nintendo game this will not be free-to-play though we will have a price we’ll see how good it is I guess on the Microsoft side of things the upgrades they talked about during e3 are rolling out to this week that interface is still shooting but at least now.
I can have my system and English while being in Portugal which I couldn’t before and also the stuff with the groups and the other things i can’t remember off the top of my head Oh before I forget our Mass Effect Andromeda had a good gameplay chunk during this position for meeting weird place to show mass effect gameplay for the first time but man that game looks good it seems to be going towards the more generic third person action game but that’s actually something that I’m weirdly into with the Mass Effect game if they keep all the choice all this story stuff that they had previously but give you this level of control I mean it’s a freedom that you didn’t have in the previous game you were kind of constraint you can even jump could you could leap over obstacles now they’re straight up plat forming sections I’m very into this I’m very into Mass Effect Andromeda surprised that he chose to show it here at the PlayStation meeting for ya thumbs up alright folks is going to do it for today for this and more stuff head over to central ultimate tech news .
