New PS4 Pro mode should 'Boost' retail sales

Sony Playstation 4

When the option is enabled, games should benefit from improved frame rates, in contrast to the choppier performances of the status quo. According to reports from those who've had hands-on time with "Boost Mode", the new system setting will only provide a performance increase for games that don't have locked frame rates.

It appears the mode may not work with every game flawlessly, as users are told to turn the feature off in the event there is any "unexpected behavior during gameplay".

The PlayStation 4 Pro with a 1TB internal hard drive is now available on Amazon for £349.99, while the entry-level PS4 Slim can be had for just £209.

Sony has added 3D movie support to PlayStation VR in the latest software update for its PlayStation 4 games console.

As is the case with the PS4 Pro itself, Boost Mode won't be compatible with all games.

Israeli Knesset passes West Bank outposts bill
Emboldened by the Trump administration, the Israeli government is expanding settlement construction at an alarming new rate. But coalition chairman David Bitan told the Times of Israel the vote would "definitely" take place on Monday.

Firmware update version 4.50 will introduce "Boost Mode", a feature that will enable older PlayStation 4 game titles to run better on the new PlayStation 4 Pro that now boasts new hardware, even if the game has not been designed by developers to be optimized.

The PlayStation 4 Pro also had a promise of 4K, despite not through a native resolution render and simply done with checkerboard upscaling technique (via Gamingbolt.) However, there's no clear cut regarding which games are going to be supported in the future. "That meant staying with eight Jaguar cores for the CPU and pushing the frequency as high as it would go on the new process technology, which turned out to be 2.1GHz". The PS4 Pro also has improved lighting and colours thanks to HDR technology, which is also available on the PS4 Slim and the Xbox One S.

Are the new features worth upgrading your standard Playstation 4? At 7.2lbs (3.3kg), the Pro is 2.6lbs (1.2kg) heavier than the Slim and features more ports, including an extra USB slot and Optical output.

Nevertheless, TechRadar says video quality is "absolutely incredible", if not quite up to the quality of high-end PCs. Some developers do update their games to tailor-fit the PS4 Pro owners' needs, but the chances of getting all of them carried out are just small.
