Every PlayStation 4 to be made HDR capable via a patch

 

By Oli Welsh Published 07/09/2016

 

The focus at Sony's PlayStation Meeting event in New York is on PlayStation 4 Pro, but it's not the only Sony console that will be able to use the capabilities of the latest TV sets.

 

At the event, PlayStation boss Andrew House revealed that all PS4s will gain the ability to support the High Dynamic Range (HDR) colour capabilities of some UHD, or 4K, TVs. HDR support will be added to PS4 via a system update next week.

 

Previously, the only console with HDR capabilities has been the recently released Xbox One S from Microsoft. It can play UHD Blu-ray discs, which use HDR, and HDR is coming to some games, including this month's Forza Horizon 3.

Does 4.0 have a public release date yet?

"Next week"

 

When the Slim launches the HDR update is coming as part of 4.0 (although this isn't in the beta).

Oh nice, just need to buy myself a new shiny HDR TV. Although i'm still holding out for a good gaming 65" set with the holy trinity of HDR OLED 4k.

To answer my own question - No Microsoft won't be adding HDR to the original Xbox One as it only has HDMI 1.4a whereas it looks like Sony sneaked in an HDMI2.0a compatible controller even though it wasn't finalised when the PS4 originally came out. So with a firmware update they can make that compatible controller a compliant one and support HDR. Interestingly that also means it can technically do 4K as well if Sony decide to add that in the future. Obviously it can't do 4K games but it may be possible to do 4K video content which would be interesting with their PlayStation Vue service :yes:
