So much for waiting until November 10 for a Sony PS4 Pro.

Why pre-order the Sony PS4 Pro and wait for its November 10, when you just can waltz into your local Walmart and buy one now? This is what person identified on Twitter as Juniper Roth in Tucson Arizona just did. He bought the $399 Sony PS4 Pro at his local Walmart and posted a bunch of photos of his new PS4 Pro.

We have seen journalists showing off their PS4 Pro review units they received this week. Now the first Sony fan has his PS4 Pro in his hands. The Sony PS4 Pro comes with a 1TB hard-drive. The photos published by Juniper Roth show the HDD slot of the PS4 Pro and the drive itself amongst other details. The series of photos is mini unboxing. See the photos below.

The Sony PS4 Pro features increased performance to handle 4K gameplay and HDR. Sony briefed several journalists on the PS4 Pro and showed the side-by-side comparisons of games running on PS4 and PS4 Pro. The difference is dramatic and well worth the $100 extra. Not only does the PS4 Pro improve the quality of 4K optimized games, but also games with lower resolution using a technique called checkerboard rendering.

The Sony PS4 Pro will be in stores that follow street dates on Thursday November 10. You can try your local Walmart if you can get them to sell you the PS4 Pro now. They have it in their storage already.

So far we have not seen a PS4 Pro Black Friday deal and we do not anticipate to see one. It also looks like that Sony is not even offering a PS4 Pro Bundle for the Holidays. Based on the first released Black Friday 2016 ads there are also no new PS4 Slim bundles. Sony is not seeing the need to match Microsoft's Xbox One S Holiday bundle bonanza.

Update: See the latest tweets from Juniper Roth below. The owner of the PS4 Pro is taking questions via Twitter.
