Sony PS4 review

 

PlayStation 4 sheds some weight – and some notes off its price tag

Great games ; Good value ; Improved power efficiency ; PS Plus still a great deal ; DualShock 4 better than ever

Optical audio removed ; No 4K Blu-ray player

An excellent console with a great catalogue of AAA games, the slimmer, smaller PS4 is better in almost every way compared to the original, barring one notable exception.

PlayStation 4 Camera review

 

An extra purchase with no purpose

Works as advertised ; The Playroom is amusing ; Voice commands work well ; Compact and attractive

Few games use it ; No gesture controls ; Minimal voice commands ; Face recognition more trouble than it's worth

The bottom line is that right now it's just not worth it to buy a PlayStation Camera. Go ahead and give the new PS Camera a try if you're a hardcore PlayStation fan who want to see more developers utilize it down the road, or if you simply need to have...

Sony PS4 review: its lead this generation only grows wider

 

PlayStation 4 is still the king of the current-gen, despite its lack of great exclusives

Powerful spec ; Great controller ; Stylish looks

Lack of exclusive games ; Not backwards compatible ; Media a bit light

Sony PlayStation 4 Slim review

 

Smaller, lighter, quieter, cheaper

Always significantly quieter than the original and often silent ; Usefully smaller and arguably better looking ; Tiny, handy tweaks to the controller

No optical output or 4K Blu-ray drive

Better than the original PS4 in almost every way, the Slim is an awesome console if you're not a Pro-style gamer

PS4 vs Xbox One review: Which is best - PlayStation 4 or Xbox One?

 

Microsoft and Sony have produced two cracking consoles. While the PS4 wins on raw processing horsepower, the Xbox One has strong entertainment features and – for now – a better line-up of games. Things could change fast, though, and both machines have...

We hate to say it, but there is no right choice. The PS4 has raw horsepower on its side, but the Xbox One wins out on entertainment features. Things could easily and quickly change on that front, however.In terms of betting on future potential, we’d...

Sony PlayStation 4

 

Is the PS4 the console to buy this Christmas?

Sleek, powerful hardware ; Intuitive and functional interface ; Great streaming and sharing features ; Excellent controller ; Key games look better on PS4 than Xbox One

Lack of great exclusives ; No instant resume on games ; No DLNA client for media streaming

After a year, the PS4 still has the sleekest, most powerful hardware, the most intuitive interface and an improved line-up of apps and games. It has streaming capabilities that Microsoft can’t match, with more to come. What it doesn’t have is a killer...

Sony PlayStation 4 review

 

With more graphical horsepower, a simpler interface and a great controller, the PS4 is our pick of the next-gen consoles

It's a tight contest then, but for us the PS4 makes a more convincing argument today and wins round one. If you're spending big money on a new console you want something that looks like it has a long life ahead of it, which the PS4 does. The Xbox One...

Sony PlayStation 4 review 2014: PS4 review

 

Sony's PlayStation has reached its fourth generation, but it is worth your hard earned cash? Find out in our full PS4 review. Updated on 15/01/14.

The Sony PS4 is a good looking and powerful console with fantastic hardware. We like the new DualShock controller and smooth interface. It's also cheaper than the Xbox One but a lack of killer titles mean it's probably worth hanging back for a while,...

Sony PS4 review

 

Now with more Remote Play, hard drive upgrades and UK PSN findings [UPDATE: now with video]

Stunning 1080p gaming for the win Remote Play is brilliant Super-slick and fast operation

No DLNA - yet 4K games still out of reach Some features look a little underbaked right now

Slick, powerful and packed with stand-out features, the PS4 delivers on the next-gen console promise
