The PlayStation 4 Pro is hitting store shelves next week with over thirty titles that will be available at launch, and many more scheduled by the end of the year.
While Microsoft fans wait patiently for the release of Xbox’s Project Scorpio next holiday season — which is said to be progressing well through development — the PlayStation 4 Pro will be here a little later this month with a full catalogue of games to play (or replay).
There will be over 30 titles ready to roll when PlayStation 4 Pro launches on November 10. While these titles will be available for both versions of the console, games on the Pro will look better and play better than they would on the original version of the device, essentially providing an overall enhanced gaming experience.
Here is what will be available at launch:
- Battlefield 1
- Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Driveclub VR
- FIFA 17
- Hustle Kings
- Infamous: First Light
- Infamous: Second Son
- Mafia 3
- Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
- NBA 2K17
- Ratchet & Clank
- RIGS: Mechanized Combat League
- Rise Of The Tomb Raider
- Robinson: The Journey
- Super Stardust Ultra
- The Elders Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited
- The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition
- The Last of Us Remastered
- The Last of Us: Left Behind
- The Playroom VR
- Titanfall 2
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
- Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
- VR Worlds
- World Of Tanks
- XCOM 2
By the end of the year, more than 45 games will include support for the Pro console and those numbers will continue to grow as more games are released. One of the more prominent titles this year confirmed to support the platform is Final Fantasy XV, which will launch near the end of the month. Additionally, there are several PSVR titles will will support the PS4 Pro.
Some will argue for gamers to save their money for Project Scorpio, which includes some features Sony has chosen to exclude, such as 4K blu-ray support. But the truth is, both consoles are essentially providing the same thing: better graphics and processing power than their original version, for the price of a new console. The PlayStation 4 Pro is sitting at $399, but it has yet to be seen what Project Scorpio will set gamers back.
While the debate rages on about which souped-up console is better, the world will get to see what’s possible when PlayStation 4 Pro launches next week, long before the new Xbox. Whether it will end up being the go-to choice for the long term, however, remains to be seen.
PlayStation 4 Pro will be available on November 10, 2016.
