PS4 Pro

 

This article was first published on November 7th as a review-in-progress. After spending more time with the console, I've updated it with more findings and a verdict. I first tested this console at a Sony event in the company of PlayStation...

Sony PS4 Pro review

 

No 4K Blu-ray or HDR video streaming, but the PS4 Pro is a worthy update

Price ; Rich colour ; Crisp detail ; Good handling of 4K games ; Impressive upscaler ; Mechanical buttons

Sound could be more dynamic ; No 4K Blu-ray player ; Streaming services need HDR updates

Makes games look better, but still needs work to be an all-in-one 4K streamer and player

Sony PS4 Pro review: 4K HDR gaming for PlayStation fans

 

A fantastic 4K HDR games console that has a full year ahead of any similarly capable rival. It would have been nice to have 4K Blu-ray playback and a

4K HDR gaming ; Faster operating speed ; Well supported with enhanced games ; Provides better experience for PSVR gamers

A beast in looks and size ; No 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray playback ; Only a 1TB HDD which will fill rapidly

Caveats aside, there is absolutely no doubt that the PlayStation 4 Pro is the best PlayStation we've ever been treated to. Its graphical nous is on a par with the more expensive Xbox One X (most of the time) and developers are seemingly more than happy...

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro review

 

Got a whizz-bang, 4K HDR TV? The PS4 Pro is the console you need - even without 4K Blu-ray

4K and HDR gaming goodness ; A helping hand for PSVR ; Familiar, sleek styling

No 4K Blu-Ray support ; Lots of games still waiting for Pro support ; PS4 VR cable swapping

Forget about the lack of 4K Blu-Ray - the PS4 Pro is the console your 4K TV dreams of

PS4 Pro review

 

Sony's souped-up PS4 Pro is amazing for 4K TV owners

First 4K HDR Sony console ; Larger 1TB hard drive ; The best Pro Mode games look great

No 4K Blu-ray player ; Pro Mode support varies

A year after launch, PS4 Pro is still an easy buy for newcomers to the world of PlayStation, early PlayStation VR adopters and 4K HDR TV owners. For everyone else, though, there’s a chance the Pro’s benefits aren’t worth the extra cost.

PlayStation 4 Slim review: Your old PS4, but smaller -- not that anything's wrong with that

 

Sony's slimmed-down PS4 is mostly the same old black box we've known since 2013. And that's OK.

The newer PS4 has a smaller footprint, slick design, quieter operation and keeps intact all of the PS4 awesomeness it's offered since 2013. The slightly updated DualShock4 controller is a bonus.

The slim PS4 loses its optical audio port, which will be a bummer for third-party headphone users. The somewhat pricier PS4 Pro delivers a larger hard drive and the promise of better graphics.

The PS4 Slim is a deja vu game console: great for gamers on a budget, not quite as good as the PS4 Pro and skippable for any existing PlayStation 4 owner.

PlayStation 4 review: Our take updated for holiday 2015

 

As it reaches its two-year anniversary, the PlayStation 4 hits its stride.

The PlayStation 4 serves up dazzling graphics, runs on a simplified and logical interface and boasts a fantastic controller. It has the upper hand in indie games and can stream a constantly growing list of legacy titles via PlayStation Now. The PS4...

The Xbox One has a slight edge in non-gaming entertainment features such as streaming content and media portal apps.

The PlayStation 4's beautiful graphics, smart interface, blazing performance, near-perfect controller and better indie offerings give it an edge over the Xbox One -- though that edge is ever-shrinking.

PS4 Pro review: Sony is finally allowing cross-play on the PS4

 

Fortnite beta marks the first step towards cross-platform gameplay

Improved game performance ; 4K Checkerboarding and native 4K aren't all that different ; No exclusive PS4 Pro games

Not worth the £100 extra just yet ; No clear parity for how games use extra Pro capabilities

The PS4 Pro is a great product, as any small upgrade to a console as successful as the PS4 was inevitably going to be. It’s also, however, disappointing that it isn’t a more significant step forward.
