Sony PS4 (Slim) 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.

Original (2013) PS4 Review review

 

The 'fat' PS4

Snappy performance ; Killer components ; Much-improved controller ; PlayStation Plus ; PlayStation Now ; PlayStation Music

Remote Play's trivial ; PSN's less stable than Xbox Live ; Not enough apps

The most powerful games console in the world, the PS4 is even better than it was a year ago. With AAA games available and features added, it's becoming the console we wanted from the start.

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

PS4 Pro

 

Sony PS4 Pro review: This super-charged PS4 is the best games console right now

Stunning graphics with 4K and HDR ; Quieter ; Games load more quickly ; Enhances some PS4 and PSVR games

No 4K Blu-ray ; Power and eject buttons feel cheap

Sony PS4 Slim review: The perfect replacement for the original PlayStation 4

 

The PS4 Slim is the same fantastic console you already know and love, albeit in a much neater box

Compact design ; Energy efficient ; Super quiet

Lacks 4K Blu-ray player ; PS4 Pro launch on the horizon

It’s a shame Sony hasn’t seen fit to include a dedicated 4K Blu-ray drive in the PS4 Slim (you’ll have to go to the Xbox One S for that), but if that doesn’t bother you – or you don’t have a 4K TV to take advantage of it – then the PS4 Slim is a great...

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...
