Note that all PS4 games can support PS4 Pro, but Sony has insisted that it will not release any PS4 Pro-exclusive games, meaning if you already own an old PS4, you won’t miss out on any games if you don’t buy the PS4 Pro. PS4 games that release will include additional PS4 Pro modes that enable additional visual upgrades.

Lastly, Sony will also be bringing in the slimmer PS4 model, which is identical in specs to the launch version of the PS4. This will also be available from this month and at the same price point as the PS4 currently sells for – Rs 27,990 for the 500 GB model and Rs 32,990 for 1 TB.
