As long as you have a 4K UHD TV, running a game in 4K is very easy: The console will automatically scale your resolution to 4K when you plug it in, the same way it scales your resolution on the standard PS4.
Each game also requires a patch enabling 4K support. Prior to the console's launch, there have been a very limited number 4K-enabled games, fewer than 10. That number is expected to grow - many developers have announced 4K patches are coming - but the timeline for those releases is not clear.

The extra power will also give more clarity to the content you share. Using the "Share" button on the DualShock 4 controller, you'll be able to capture 4K screenshots and 1080p videos at 30 frames per second, Sony told Polygon.
Will Update as More info is Provided.

With PlayStation 4 Pro our goal is to deliver innovation in the form of cutting-edge visuals and graphics while in the midst of the PS4's lifecycle. PS4 Pro, which launches November 10, 2016, for a suggested retail price of $399.99 USD ($499.99 CAD), enhances PS4 games by supporting the latest in imaging technology through 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR), as well as smoother frame rates. Games that already look extraordinary on PS4 will look richer and more detailed, thanks to the more powerful GPU and faster CPU at the heart of PS4 Pro.

With more pixels, 4K's higher resolution delivers graphics that are sharper and have greater detail than ever imagined. HDR enables visuals to look much closer to the way your eyes see the real world.
Some developers are updating previously launched PS4 games to add PS4 Pro support, while other developers are building PS4 Pro support into upcoming releases. At launch, you'll be able to download patches for games - such as Uncharted 4 - which are enhanced when playing on the new console. Future releases that will have PS4 Pro enhancements built-in include Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Mass Effect: Andromeda and Days Gone.

However, even if you own an HDTV that does not support either 4K or HDR, PS4 Pro still provides a number of benefits. All games will run in 1080p resolution, and some will even run in a higher or more stable framerate. If you're a gamer that wants to be at the forefront of innovation, PS4 Pro is for you.
We also know a lot of our fans watch movies, TV shows, and videos on their PS4, so we're working with our partners who offer best-in-class streaming services to build new apps for PS4 Pro. Netflix will launch a new app at the launch of PS4 Pro that supports 4K. YouTube is also developing a new 4K-compatible app for PS4 Pro.

By pricing PlayStation 4 Pro in line with the original PS4's launch cost, Sony has realised that there's a certain price ceiling acceptable for a mainstream console launch, and while the omission of the UHD Blu-ray drive is a bad move for a device aimed at the higher end, more discerning user, it's clearly a business decision aimed at getting as many consoles into homes as quickly as possible. Keeping the price low also helps to address the key concern about the hardware, which is pretty simple: to what extent does it actually improve the visual experience? Before addressing that, it's worth pointing out that the relatively small price bump from PS4 to Pro means that even if you're buying just for more refined performance, excellent anti-aliasing and 2x the storage, you're still not getting a bad deal.

Any word how much more the Jaguar is clocked? Also really interest how PS4 Pro will play games that are not patched. Would be nice to get some 30 fps locked games.

The specs above are for the PS4 not the Pro. I cant wait for this and really think they will be a vast improvement over the PS4.

Days Gone looks good kinda hope its like The Last Of Us.

I still own the PS4 (OG) of course though I am pretty sure I will let my girlfriend take it over (She still is rocking the PS3, More or less a netflix chic) So then I can upgrade to the PS4 Pro in all of it's fame and fortune.

I have been researching TV's over the past 72hours in order to get the best bang for the buck. I have a 50" Insignia 1080p 60Hz at the moment I paid 350$ For over 3 Years ago. The Flood took away the lazer that lets the remote work, so I will sell the tube for 100$ and Put it toward This guy.

The slim is quieter by a lot. Only the launch PS4 is loud.

You hope the PRO Is quieter? I am really doubting it will be. I think with the PS4 PRO release I just might order my Astronaut helmet to go with it. I figure If I am going to play on a jet engine... just to embrace it

New console for 2016 we're gonna use a GPU from 2013 (R9 290/RX 480) with a die shrink!

The yawn is strong with this one.

Oh Come now with the negativity. The Playstation and Consoles have made much improvement over the past 10 years. If anything brings us a community closer to 1080p 60FPS why wouldn't that be a good move?

If their goal was 1080p 60, maybe. But Sony's goal is 4K (upscaled probably) at 30 fps. That's not a great experience.

Even still at 1080p 60 FPS people are building computers to have that experience. It's a game changer from the console that runs at 900-1080p with 30fps to Play on One that "could" consistently display the 1080p 60fps mark.

Been thinking about pulling the trigger on a PS4 Slim but the Pro looks like it might be the better value prop at this point, will be interesting to see how it performs in real world gaming.

Don't know if i will upgrade to PS4 Pro just yet. If my PS4 dies now then i will upgrade. But going to wait a year or two before buying a 4K HDR TV. Since some movie needs 1200 nits and others use 1000 nits or higher for HDR etc. Also input lag on HDR. Going to have to wait until this becomes the norm on 4K TV. Also Rec.2020 wide color will be the next big thing. Unless someone wants to buy my PS4 for $400
