Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro arrives November 10 for $400, £350 or AU$560. It's the most powerful PlayStation yet...and we got up close and personal with the new game system.
The PS4 Pro is like a double-decker sandwich. Twice the graphical power, and twice the physical layers as well compared with the original PS4. You can barely see the Blu-ray optical disc drive inside the top layer of filling. Sony's also keeping up a fine tradition of hiding the power button.
The eject button is similarly hard to find, along with a pair of USB ports.
On the right, you'll find some hidden PlayStation button symbols (cross, triangle, square, circle). Why? The translucent pegs in the vertical stand are shaped like those button logos!
You'll also find the PlayStation button logos on the bottom of the PS4 Pro, acting as rubber feet to keep the system from sliding around.
Around back, all your ports. The PS4 Pro uses a chunkier, PC-style power cable (like an Xbox) though the power supply is still thankfully on the inside. The PS4 Pro also uses faster USB 3.1 ports instead of USB 3.0.
Here's the easy-access hard-drive tray, if you want to replace your PS4 Pro hard drive. Sony won't say whether the SATA speeds have improved, so we don't know whether a solid-state drive would make a difference for game loads.
In some light, the PS4 Pro looks downright gray...
...but in other light, it can look quite black.
And that shiny silver PlayStation logo sure is shiny -- it acts like a little mirror!
