Sony revealed PlayStation 4 Pro during its PlayStation Meeting event. While the console is not going to support native 4K for games, but it will output a similar result to 4K using checkerboard process. Now Sony officials has confirmed the resolutions at which PlayStation 4 Pro will be capturing in-game screenshots and recording videos.
Speaking with Polygon, PlayStation officials confirmed that PlayStation 4 Pro will be be capturing in-game screenshots at 4K resolution and video at 1080p resolution and 30 frames per second.
The console will support 1080p video at 60 frames per second for broadcasting, Remote Play and Share Play. However, the resolution will also depend on the network connection according to the officials.
Also video sharing on Youtube and DailyMotion will support 1080p at 60 frames per second, on the other hand for Twitch the video will be 1080p at 30 frames per second. Again the resolution will depend upon the network provider.
The original PlayStation 4 captures screenshots at 1080p resolution, while it records video at 720p and 30 frames per second.
While its been a couple of days since the reveal of PlayStation 4 Pro, developers are praising the console and think that it will revolutionize the future of gaming industry. According to Insomniac Games, PlayStation 4 Pro is a real step forward, and also announced that Rachet And Clank will be coming to the new console.
For our Spider-Man project we’re really working as hard as we can to build a really rich, detailed version of New York City and the amount of detail and improved fidelity you can get on a 4K display – especially a 4K display that has HDR – is pretty stunning. It’s a real step forward. That’s what we’re most excited about.
It is obvious that Sony has an advantage over Microsoft, as Xbox One Scorpio is going to release next year while PlayStation 4 Pro is launching in November 2016. However, Microsoft is quite confident about its decision about the console and believe that their console will be more powerful than PS4 Pro.
PlayStation 4 Pro is scheduled to launch on November 10, 2016 and will be priced at $399.
