All Playstation 4 consoles to be HDR compatible with firmware update

Sony have announced at their press conference today that all PS4 consoles will be able to output HDR from compatible games.

A forthcoming firmware patch with enable every console, even launch PS4s, to display HDR, which outputs better and more realistic colours to compatible TVs.

The conference also revealed the Playstation 4 Slim, which was leaked last week, which will replace the current Playstation model and retail at £259.  The PS4 Slim will be available on September 15th.

The move comes after Microsoft’s new Xbox One S went on sale with 4K Upscaling and HDR support, though older Xbox Ones don’t have HDR.  We wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft decided to implement HDR on their older consoles as well.
