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

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.

S.T.A.R.S.: Resident Evil 2 Remake

And so it begins...: Man of Medan

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.

Note: The Improved Framerate section of this chart is only specified if the information exists in menus or game descriptions.

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.

Enhanced gaming

PlayStation 4 Pro

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.
