Firmware Update Version 4.50 Will Introduce 'Boost Mode'

Posted February 07, 2017

"Experience improved gameplay, including higher framerates, for some games that were released before the PS4 Pro (CUH-7000 Series)".

Before his Facebook post announcing he wouldn't attend the briefing, Yiannopoulos said it wasn't hard to get credentials. There's nothing positive to be said about what happened Wednesday evening at UC Berkeley.

The design is nearly identical to the PS4 Slim, only with what appears to be an extra "layer" added on top of it.
