If you've been part of the PlayStation family for a while then you'll know that several versions of one console come out during its lifespan. During the PlayStation 4 era, the PS4 Pro was a secondary release of the console that boosted the performance of later game releases like God of War or The Last of Us Part 2. Now, although we've barely had any time with the PlayStation 5, there is already talk of a Pro version of the console set to launch in a couple of years.
Wccftech and YouTuber Moore's Law Is Dead have been already looking at the beginnings of the PlayStation 5 Pro. Though very little is known officially about the product as it's obviously still in development, there is a strong suspicion that the console will aim to provide at least 4K if not 8K gaming to players. However, Tom of MLID doesn't know if Sony will actually pull this off because of the limited number of people who would actually have an 8K monitor or TV to take advantage of the power of the PS5.
Though there are a lot of opinions floating about on what a Pro would mean, if Sony is making it an upgraded version of the base PS5 it seems it would cost around $700-800 USD which is about 75% extra cost. It's potentially a hefty price to pay for some of the best gaming experiences money can offer but there will be players who do buy it. But will it be worth the extra price to many?
Of course, it's going to be a very long time before we know anything solid about another PlayStation 5. We might even see Sony take another route with the next console release and aim to match Xbox's offer of an incredible gaming console that's smaller and less money like the Xbox Series S. It'll be a while before we know but just know that Sony is already working on delivering the next evolution of its flagship gaming experience.
