It is almost a month since the release of the PlayStation 5. Some players have successfully obtained one on release day, but others are either having a hard time getting to a store at the right time or are facing the terrors of bots and scalpers online.
However, there are reports inbound of a PlayStation 5 Pro. Mentioned by T3, there appears to be a Patent from Sony for the console to perform with two GPUS.
If this is the case, it could it be recommended for those who haven’t purchased the PlayStation 5 yet to aim towards the Pro upgrade itself?
Only time will tell.
