Sony have been babbling about their upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro that was rumored to be called as the PS4 Neo and its gaming capabilities. Though it looks like PS4 Pro is not everything what we expected it to be when it comes to 4k gaming on a console.
Till now we have heard Sony saying that their new PlayStation 4 Pro would be able to play games at 4k resolution but the company has changed their statement now. According to Sony, most of the games that would be available on the PlayStation 4 Pro would be played through HD upscaling only. Though Sony does admit that it’s their fault for misleading the advertisement campaign for their upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro.
A misleading advertisement like that can make a lot of gamers unhappy. If we are not wrong most of the gamers were waiting for PlayStation 4 Pro because Xbox One S which is already present in the market already offers 4k upscaling. This move can be risky for Sony as there are competitors in the market that already provide 4k upscaling as well as PC’s that are able to play games at 4k 60FPS, though Sony also said that gamers would be able to play games at 4k 60FPS on their PS4 Pro which later changed to FHD 60 FPS.
This does not mean that Sony won’t be launching games that players would be able to play at native 4k resolution but most of them would be upscaled to 4k resolution from HD. If Sony fans weren’t already pissed about the removal of a Blue-Ray Disk, Sony just gave them another reason not to like their upcoming console known as the PS4 Pro.
Microsoft will be launching their next console soon known as the Project Scorpio which is also said to run games at 4k resolution at 60FPS. Maybe Sony is waiting to launch another console that will tackle Project Scorpio upon its launch, who knows.
