PS4 Software Update 4.0 Adds HDR Support

Sony has updated the firmware (V4.0) for HDR compatibility to its PS4 range, and there’s a new look to the user interface look. Owners of the new PS4 Pro will be able to cast content to other devices and sharing has also been improved.

Analyst Comment

There were few details about the exact nature of the HDR support, but we assume this will mean that games that can support HDR can be used with compatible TVs. We also assume this will be HDR10 via the HDMI port, as there is still not a flag to signal HLG support (see our IFA report for more) within HDMI. (BR)
