Sony has revealed that apps for both Netflix and YouTube will support High Dynamic Range (HDR) on the PlayStation 4.
While it will require you to pick up one of the shiny new PlayStation 4 Pro consoles to play videos in 4K on a compatible television, Sony confirmed that every PlayStation 4 console will become HDR compatible via a firmware update.
The Netflix app will be available at the launch of the PS4 Pro on November 10, and will feature the release of Marvel’s Luke Cage as a 4K show. The YouTube app will come later.
The company revealed both the new PlayStation Pro console, as well as the previously leaked PlayStation Slim (now known as the PlayStation 4 going forward) at today’s PlayStation meeting.
“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, 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.”
You can pick up a PS4 Slim on September 15 for $299 or the PlayStation 4 Pro on November 10 for $399.
