The PS4 Pro launches on November 10th for $399, and to get people excited for the souped-up console Sony is going old school. Very old school. The PlayStation UK Twitter account tweeted this ’80s-style ad for the Pro, highlighting its many technical features, including “super fresh graphics” and “immersive gaming experience.” As the man in the advert said: Woahhh.

The PS4 Pro does of course represent an upgrade from the PS4, with increased processing power, more than double the GPU capacity, 4K support, and up to 1 terabyte of internal storage. It’s not powerful enough to send you in a time machine back to the ’80s, but it’s definitely going to be able to deliver better graphics than the regular PS4. The question is, are people interested in a half-step console, or will they just go for the cheaper option with the same games? We’ll find out in the coming months when the Pro goes on sale.
