During the reveal event of PlayStation 4 Pro Sony announced that the console is capable of running games at 4K resolution with HDR. However, games like Horizon Zero Dawn will not running on native 4K resolution but will be upscaling to it. Many fans have complained that Sony is misleading, but according to Sony Interactive Entertainment president Andrew House, PlayStation 4 Pro 4K promise is not misleading.
Speaking with Digital Spy, House said that majority of the game will not be running at native 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro.
I would say the majority [of games running at 4K on PS4 Pro] will be upscaled – at least based on the game portfolio I have seen to date.
When asked about PlayStation 4 Pro 4K promise is misleading, House responded “No, I don’t think so”.
He further added that the question is about if the players see any noticeable difference in the experience aside from what we said or not.
I think that whatever the term is, it’s a question of whether people see a demonstrable difference in the game experience or not, rather than the term we use to apply to it.
I think that’s what people are looking for and they’ll make their judgement as to whether that’s working for them or not.
While many developers are bringing their upcoming games to PlayStation 4 pro along with games that have been already released. Some developers are in no mood to bring their already released games to PlayStation 4 Pro.
One such developer is CD Projekt Red, who has announced that they will not be bringing The Witcher 3 to PlayStation 4 Pro.
I’m afraid we have no plans to release PS4 Pro edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Our teams are working hard on upcoming projects such as Gwent: The Witcher Card game and Cyberpunk 2077. We want to be entirely focused on the development of these projects.
PlayStation 4 Pro is scheduled to launch on November 10, 2016 for $399.
