Sony has revealed prices for its new PlayStation 4 Pro (PS4 Pro) and PlayStation 4 Slim (PS4 Slim) consoles as well as that of the PlayStation VR (PSVR) headset.
The PlayStation VR bundle, which includes a tracking camera, will be available for Rs 41,990. The stand-alone PSVR headset will go for Rs 37,990. The PS4 Pro will be available for Rs 38,990 and the PS4 Slim for Rs 27,990.
The PS4 Slim is slimmer, lighter PS4. Internally, it’s the same as the PS4 and supports HDR, Full HD gaming and the PSVR. All games built for the PS4 Pro will be compatible with the PS4 Slim.
The PS4 Pro is the grown up version of the PS4. It features hardware that is much more powerful, support for interpolated 4K gaming (upscaled 2K content) and support for HDR and the PSVR. Games that are developed for the PS4 Pro will run smoother, look better and will have more bells and whistles.
The PSVR headset brings virtual reality capabilities to Sony’s console. PSVR even supports positional audio via a bundled box that must be hooked into the PS4. The tracking camera is needed for tracking the PSVR headset as well as the controllers.
When it comes to controllers, your standard DualShock 4 controller is compatible with the PSVR. The older Move controllers are also compatible.
The consoles will be available this month. The PSVR headset will be available in March.
