Console manufacturers have long used a "tock" model of updating hardware...until now. The release of the PS4 Pro represents a "tick" in the development of the companies' respective consoles. These are not releases of new consoles built from the ground up, but improvements on the existing hardware. Without going into vast detail and promotional talking points, these improvements mean more power. Here are all the games that are enhanced when you use the PlayStation Pro!
- Shooter, Looter, MAYHEM: Borderlands 3
- Game of the year 2018: God of War
- Cowboys! Bang, bang!: Red Dead Redemption
- The art of death: Assassin's Creed Origins
- Secrets unknown: Shadow of the Tomb Raider
- Mechanical oaisis: Horizon Zero Dawn
- Go, web, go!: Spider-Man
- S.T.A.R.S.: Resident Evil 2 Remake
- Popular MMO: Fortnite
- And so it begins...: Man of Medan
Borderlands, one of the first shooter-looter games, is back again with Borderlands 3. This game offers the same ridiculous humor and action-packed mayhem you remember from the previous entries, but with new vault hunters, new worlds, and a new story. Explore lands beyond Pandora while you shoot, loot, and profit.
Kratos is back and this time he's not facing the Gods of Olympus, but the hardship of raising his son, Atreus, after the death of his mother. Indulge yourself in this captivating story as you experience the breathtaking visual effects the developing team clearly poured its heart and soul into. PS4 Pro enhancements include compatibility with 4K and HDR.
Get your cowboy hats ready, y'all. This third-person open-world adventure is here and it's time to rob trains, kill bandits, outrun the sheriff, and fight for survival. Rockstar Studios went well out of its way to bring us this phenomenal title with 4K and HDR compatibility when you play it on the PlayStation Pro. It even has an improved framerate for you to enjoy your game with much smoother visuals.
Nothing is true, everything is permitted. If you remember how beautiful Venice looked during Ezio's story of Assassin's Creed, just wait until you see how beautiful Egypt looks. Take on the role of both Medjay and Aya on their path of revenge and how the entire Brotherhood even started. This third-person open-world series is enhanced by the PlayStation Pro with 4K and HDR compatibility.
Lara Croft has always been on the good side in the Tomb Raider games, but what changes when she's the reason everything is falling apart? This third-person action-adventure game is enhanced by the PlayStation Pro with compatibility to 4K and HDR, improved framerates to 60 FPS, and better rendering ability.
This title touches base on what we all secretly fear— the day when humanity is pushed into a corner as the machines take over. This open-world third-person game is enhanced by the PlayStation Pro with compatibility for 4K and HDR, improved framerates, and 3840x2160p checkerboard resolution.
If we're being honest with each other, the remakes of the Spider-Man films are much better than both of the originals. The same goes for the game as well. This open-world third-person game is enhanced by the PlayStation Pro with 4K compatibility, an improved framerate of 30 FPS, and enhanced graphics.
The Resident Evil 2 Remake is the best remake of a game I have ever played. The original release completely reconstructed the visuals and gameplay, but the PlayStation 4 Pro enhances the game with a greater resolution and higher HDR rating. If you're a fan of zombies or horror this is a must-have for your gaming collection.
This battle royale is taking the world by storm. Jump out of the chopper, decide where you're going to land, and attempt to be the last man standing. Don't forget to collect gear and upgrades to better your chance at survival! Pro mode is enhanced by providing 60 FPS and an improvement to the overall graphics.
Supermassive Games, the devs who brought us Until Dawn, have begun a new anthology. Man of Medan is the first of 8 chapters in this horror series that plays out like a set of scary stories you tell around the campfire. Choice is just as important as it was in Until Dawn, everything you do can alter the ending of your tale. Pick wisely.
The complete list
Note: Some of these resolutions come with various caveats in regard to lowering other settings in order to achieve highest graphics quality. This means that console-only players will be getting a chance to dip their toes in the previously PC owned world of setting tweaks. There are also a few games that are listed as adaptive 4K. In short, this means that the system will scale the resolution up or down on its own. When there is less action on the screen you are likely to have higher resolutions, whereas moments with tons of elements being rendered at once may see the resolution lowered.

Why go Pro?
With all the various upgrades to existing games that will now be available on the PS4 Pro, there is a decent argument for a PS4 Pro owner to revisit some of the games that may have sitting on the shelves gathering dust. The only difficulty will be tracking what sort of upgrades will be getting applied to each title.
Greater greatness awaits.
The PlayStation 4 Pro has 1TB of storage and the ability to extend the it with external hard drives. It supports 4K TV for streaming and gaming, PS4 Pro enhanced games through Boost Mode, and an unbelievable range of HDR technology for the best display.
Due to the fact that it's being left to game developers to decide how they utilize the new processing power in the PS4 Pro, there is no uniform level of improvement. There are many shades of gray, but a PS4 Pro enhanced game mostly means higher resolution graphics and more frames per second. There are myriad of other graphical tweaks developers are implementing, such as enhanced textures and deeper draw distances. For the purposes of this list, however, we are just going to take the highest numbers claimed for resolution and framerate.
