PS4 Pro Developers Will Be Encouraged To Adopt Higher Resolutions

That’s a bit disappointing.

The PS4 Pro does have an appreciable bump in power over the standard PS4- it’s enough that developers can add extra enhancements to their games, visual effects and techniques that the standard PS4 simply would not be able to handle. At the same time, developers can also opt to just render the same game in a higher resolution- which is such a boring use of the added power.

Unfortunately, it also is the one that Sony seems to be pushing for. “Going forward we are highly encouraging direct support for 4K TVs and HDTVs, though we leave the specifics of how they do that up to the development community,” Sony’s Mark Cerny said in an interview with Digital Foundry. “They know best, but we really do want to see a higher resolution mode for 4K TVs and then some technique for HDTVs. It can be just scaling down from a higher resolution.”

It’s a shame, because I want to see that extra power used in meaningful ways. Then again, Sony is the company that made resolution wars and pixel counting a thing in the first place. So in a way, I’m not that surprised.

    Good observation Pramath.

    So older PS4 games that are not full HD will now become full HD on PS4-Pro?

    PS4-Pro = “Additionally, PS4 games that render below native 1080p (maximum quality
    for HD TVs) on the standard PS4 can be elevated to render at full native 1080p on an HDTV”………….. as well as…………..”Depending on how the developer chooses to use the increased processing power, games with PS4 Pro support are able to render higher or more consistent framerates, increased environmental and character model detail, improved overall visual quality, and other related visual enhancements”
