At the PlayStation Meeting Sony announced when you can buy the PS4 Pro. It will be available from November 10, 2016 internationally for $399 (around Rs. 26,590). No date for India has been announced just yet. Though you can expect it to be available for Rs. 39,990 - the price for which the original PS4 was made available when it launched in the country.

Earlier codenamed as the PS4 Neo, it will have double the GPU power and will be used AMD’s Polaris architecture. PS4 architect Mark Cerny claims it also adopts several features beyond it.

Cerny showed off a host of titles such as Spider-Man, For Honor, Horizon Zero Dawn, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Watch Dogs 2, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided talking up the console's prowess in terms of high resolution, compatibility, VR, and performance.

“The difference is the high resolution the PS4 Pro can support, it is simply transformative,” says Cerny.

A November 2016 release is surprising. More so considering Microsoft's Project Scorpio is almost a year away. This perhaps lends credence to the fact that the PS4 Pro was in development longer than we suspected and the fact that the PS4 out of the gate, was a tad more underpowered than Sony would have liked.
