A closer look at the gaming console that will be released soon

The ShareFactory application has been updated on PlayStation 4, and a new change means you can now turn game clips into animated GIFs. However the news of this may have gotten a bit lost amidst all the mass coverage of the 2016 Donald Trump presidential victory.

SONY'S PlayStation 4 Pro, the video games console the tech giant calls "the most powerful in the world", has gone on sale in the UK.

Priced at $399, the PlayStation 4 Pro promises better graphics via 4K resolution, HDR lighting and updated hardware.

With barely two days left before the retail release of Sony PlayStation 4 Pro, tech and gaming enthusiasts can not contain their excitement as several reports spilling the expected specs as well as rounding up the confirmed compatible games for the console.

"The launch of PS4 Pro marks the first time ever that PlayStation is introducing an upgraded console in the midst of a platform's lifecycle", Shawn Layden, president of SIEA and chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios, in a statement.

The PS4 Pro will be released a few hours from now. "The increased power, resolution, and HDR capabilities of the PS4 Pro breathe new life into every corner of the game", Connell quipped.

When Sony revealed the PS4 Pro, there were many who wondered if the company really had a game plan or if they were just trying to get another system on the market in times for the holidays in order to keep up with Microsoft's releases.

The enhancements though are still up to the developers of the game, as Sony only required that the game can run on both the standard PS4 and the PS4 Pro.

Answering a question about The Last of Us Remastered's PS4 Pro support, Lowe confirmed that you'll have to set the 30fps or 60fps option in the Display setting.

There are over 30 PS4 games that should be ready for launch, however more are on the way. In other words, with full floats, PS4 Pro has 4.2 teraflops of computational power.

Despite that though, it's still an awesome TV and especially if you manage to pick it up for that price above during the sales.

First of all, make sure all of your save games, screens and video and other personal data such as trophies are synced to the cloud, and just to be sure, put them on a USB storage device too if you can.
