Sony releases quieter version of the PlayStation 4 Pro

09 November 2018

Sony has quietly released a quieter new version of its PlayStation 4 Pro video game console.

Consumers can identify the new version by looking at the front of the packaging for the CUH-7200 model number before buying. According to tests conducted by Digital Foundry, this new version brings noise levels down from 50dB/55dB to 44dB/48dB, with the trade off being slightly higher temperatures. There were even minor gains against the previous CUH-7100 revision.

Meanwhile, the Fossil Sport launches with six colorways, two case sizes (41 and 43 mm), plus a variety of strap options. The video below, showing the Fossil Sport in action on people's wrists, doesn't show off anything surprising.

Right now, this new PS4 Pro revision appears to only be shipping with Sony's Red Dead Redemption 2 bundle but as we get closer to the holiday shopping season, we will likely see these pop up in new bundles and as standalone machines. The woman is a multicolored bundle of light particles and thanks to HDR, I can make out each particle and note the way they each cast their own vibrant glow on on the red brick wall.

Having your console whirring away is an unwelcome distraction and one that you'd rather avoid if you could. This new supply uses the standard figure-eight-style input that's also used in the PlayStation 4 Slim, Xbox One, and Xbox One X. Older PlayStation 4 Pros used a three-prong connector for their power supplies. The PS4 Pro has always featured better performance, but it has since proven to be underpowered compared to the superior Xbox One X, which was released a year later. Do any of you now have a PS4 Pro?
