Developer speaks of improvements that are easy to implement

As he explained, Sony designed the PS5 Pro's hardware to allow developers to implement technical improvements in a cost-effective way.

The concept of the PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR) upscaling technology moves in a similar direction. This was specifically tailored to the hardware of the PS5 Pro and can therefore be revised again and again or optimized with appropriate updates.

According to unconfirmed reports, the PS5 Pro will be released in the second half of 2024.
