The only thing I can find for Battlefield 1 is a mention of a future HDR patch for the Xbox One - S. I assume that game has a relationship with Microsoft because it's currently a pack-in for the XB1-S console, so EA might not be able to announce anything for PS4 until that agreement is over...?

If details about Battlefield 1 HDR for PS4 can be verified, please post a link. Thanks!

No problem. I haven't played it myself, but from the sounds of things, it seems to be well implemented. Digital Foundry did an analysis of the game. They mostly talk about the frame rates, but they did briefly mention that the HDR looks great.

The latest patch for The Last of Us smooths out performance, but disabled super sampling for those of us with 1080p displays. Bummer.

Good point -- played it on PSVR last night, but didn't look at the 4K version. I believe the demo is supposed to have HDR..?
http://www.jobsnhire.com/articles/50...nning-hour.htm

Will confirm tonight, unless someone has tried it and confirm HDR on the demo.

As noted in that topic a member mentioned people on AVSForum were having issues so while this is really a lurker account I'm just sharing findings on HDR and issues with the Pro/games.

edit: I can't post links due to less than 5 posts. Search on NeoGAF for these two topics

The Witness HDR implementation is completely broken on my TV

PS4 PRO: for best IQ (Native 4k + HDR + 60 HZ + 4:4:4) 2160p-YUV420 or 2160p-RGB?

Added Resident Evil 7 Teaser Demo: Beginning Hour to the current list, and I assume the full game will also have HDR so it's on the future list.

The demo is dark, and I assume that's intentional, to add to the creepiness. Still, HDR seems to show a lot of detail in the darkness. Curious how gamers will react to a purposely dark game.

Thanks @Soycrema !

Trying to find confirmation other than IGN's wiki for FIFA 17 and COD: Black Ops 3 as currently having HDR on PS4. Can anyone confirm either of these games please?

Question - I have an older HDMI cable and it's a single run through cabinets (not my choice). In any case, I was pretty happy when I saw it passed 4k and HDCP 2.2 without issue per the PS4 Pro Video Output Information.

So.......how do I know that it will pass HDR? I don't have any of the games noted, so I'm guessing I'll download Resident Evil demo and try it? Will a message pop up stating I'm in HDR?

From NeoGAF:

Just received an email from Housemarque this morning.

"Alongside Nex Machina we are also announcing a 4K/HDR update to Resogun.
Imagine all of the voxels, particle effects and the fast-paced action even in greater, more eye-candy indulged experience. No actual date to announce yet, but it should be coming soon enough."
Nice to see what many considered to be the best launch title getting updated!

The only solid HDR news for Rise of the Tomb Raider is for PC. Go play the game in SDR, it's great!

What TV do you have? The easiest way to to tell if HDR is working is if you get the HDR in-game options that aren't greyed out.

Some games ask if you want to switch on HDR, others automatically set it to on. So far Ratchet and Clank is the only game you really have no idea if HDR is working, except from checking your TV display. There's no in-game HDR menu options for R&C.

FIFA 17 removed from the list. If there's any update or corrections for anything, please post!

I read an article a while back where someone at DICE said the PS4 Pro will get a patch for HDR. Unfortunately I can't find it. If I do, I'll post it here.
