Tonight the PlayStation community was anticipating at least half of what was announced during today’s PlayStation Meeting that was held at the PlayStation Theatre in New York City, US. The show as a whole, however, was a little less than what was expected of Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE), especially after its fantastic performance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Either way, PlayStation fans have been left with two pretty impressive models that will no doubt change the quality of gameplay, and the release dates as well as the prices were announced during the livestream.
Firstly, the new version of the PlayStation 4, which is slimmer than the original and has been leaked as the PlayStation Slim, is coming out in just over a week on the 15th September. The prices that can be expected of this slimmer version is $299 (USD), €299 (EUR), £259 (GBP), or ?¥?29,980 (JPY).
The PlayStation Pro, which stole the show by miles, will be coming on at a later date that is 10th November, and will also be very much beneficial for VR gaming, as PlayStation VR’s Mark Cerny stated: “Developers can choose to increase the crispness of the VR scenes, make special effects richer, or to offer higher frame rates to make VR more immersive.” The price for this will be $399, €399, £349, and ?¥44,980.
It is expected that the full specifications for each of these will be coming out very soon tonight, so make sure to check back with VRFocus for more on the latest developments from SIE regarding these new PlayStation 4s.
