Playstation 4 Pro and Playstation 4 Slim Officially Announced
Revealed today at Sony's Playstation Meeting, after months of speculation, the Playstation "Neo" exists and is in fact called the Playstation 4 Pro. They also announced its little brother, the Playstation 4 Slim, which we've seen in the wild for some time following someone buying it from a retailer that broke street date.
You check out the full conference below which begins at 11: 09.
Both consoles will come with the new Dualshock 4 controller, which only has a few new features such as a better response time when the controller is connected to the console via a wired connection, a new blue indicator light on the touchpad, and indentations on the D-Pad.
