The PS4 Pro is Insignificant, and That's a Problem

Starting June 9, players will be able to pick up the new Gold PS4 console that comes packed with a 1TB HDD and Gold Dualshock 4 (a silver model is available exclusively in Europe). Sony will be offering discounts on games and accessories during this time as well, so keep your eyes peeled for good deals online and in stores. The catalogue listed the gold colored PlayStation 4 console which is slated for a June 9th release. He said he took a picture of the PS4 Slim Gold box at Walmart just before employees took it to the back to their inventory.

There will be no other variants of the PlayStation up for sale during this period.

Both PS4 Gold and Silver will join the rest of slim PS4 models now available, including the classic Jet Black, and the recently released Glacier White.

The price of these new consoles hasn't been specified but no doubt it'll be a little more than a standard black 500GB PlayStation 4.

With just a couple of days to go, all eyes are on the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017 which will be the stage for both Microsoft and Sony to stage their best consoles as well as games. Pricing and availability of the silver variant will vary by market. Microsoft is focusing on how great the Project Scorpio development kit is while Sony is keen to discuss how well its PlayStation hardware is selling. However, the company also revealed that almost 60 million PlayStation 4 units have been shipped to consumers worldwide.

To answer this, we analysed 111 PS4 Pro enhanced games released since the Pro launched a year ago. According to Sony exec Jim Ryan, we shouldn't expect a massive influx of classic PS2 or PS1 games on the PS4 any time soon. It's possible that Sony may discuss the expansion in it's press conference at E3 next week, though this has not been confirmed.
