The new Playstation 4 Firmware Upgrade is a Big deal.


[link to this post]
 
PlayStation 4 will get new firmware next week that will add HDR compatibility to all current systems.

The firmware is likely version 4.00 which is currently in beta, however it's a big surprise that HDR will be part of this firmware.

The firmware update makes all PlayStation 4 models HDR-compatible. The PS4 Slim will arrive on September 15 and PS4 Pro on November 10. Only Pro will be able to output games in 4K, however it's good to see that all current PS4's will support HDR.

Nothing to get excited about then, just a pain in the bum waiting for it to upgrade itself

Life..... It's just a game

It is good that they are upgrading the existing PS4 rather than keeping it just for the PS4 Pro but it is only any use to people with 4k displays that have the HDR feature. Which won't be me any time soon.

I do intend to get the pro dependent of stocks as I'll probably have to wait a week after release but what would be cool with the hdr update is if they patch some of the smaller titles to support 4k?

Here we are...sounds good if you have a display to support it.

WHAT IS HDR?
In a nutshell, it’s the ability to display a wider and richer range of colours, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks. This gives the TV picture a more ‘dynamic’ look, which is where the name comes from.

HDR content preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of a picture that are lost using current standards. It also allows for more natural, true-to-life colours that are closer to how we see them in real life.

Not the least interested, I'll wait for the PS5 or xbox2, not swallowing this marketing nonsense from either.

So i have had a Sony 4k tv for ages and now they are talking about HDR which is suppose to be better than 4K,i mean 4K tv have yet to take of and they on about even better resolutions in the next generation of televisions.

I don't even think i have played or adjusted the Gaming Sections in the Sony Menu.
