PS4 Pro review

 

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

First 4K HDR Sony console ; Larger 1TB hard drive ; 30+ Pro Mode games at launch

No 4K Blu-ray player ; Pro Mode support isn’t universal

Buying a PS4 Pro is an easy decision for newcomers to the world of PlayStation, PlayStation VR neophytes and 4K HDR TV owners. For everyone else, though, there’s a chance the Pro’s benefits aren’t worth the extra cost.

Sony PS4 Pro review: Why wait for Project Scorpio?

 

When Sony announced the PS4 Pro it drew many a gasp of breath. Not because of its faster central and graphics processing, but more for its timing. This was the machine many expected to be pitched against Microsoft's Project Scorpio , a 4K gaming...

4K HDR gaming, faster operating speed, well supported with enhanced games at launch, provides better experience for PS VR gamers too

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 games console we've ever seen. Its graphical nous is unparalleled in the home machine market – only PC gamers can boast better – and developers are seemingly more than...

Sony PS4 Pro review: The best PS4 yet, but not a gamechanger

 

The best PS4 you can buy today, regardless of whether you have a 4K or Full HD TV, but existing PS4 players should be wary about upgrading

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.

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 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

Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro is a perfect way to show off your 4K TV

 

The PlayStation 4 Pro is the most powerful home console yet, though you'll need a 4K/HDR TV to truly take advantage of it. If you already have a PS4 and are stuck with a 1080p, you can wait before upgrade.

Best graphical performance in a console. ; Your existing games will get upgraded for free. ; Makes PS VR much smoother.

Not a huge upgrade for existing PS4 owners with 1080p TVs. ; No 4K Blu-ray drive. ; You’ll have to wait for games to get patched to take advantage of it.

So who is the PlayStation 4 Pro actually meant for? After testing it out for the past week, I'd say it's for people who haven't yet bought a PS4 and want to show off their fancy new 4K/HDR sets. And of course, there are the hardcore gamers who will...

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro: $399, November 10, with better graphics, 4K and HDR -- but no 4K Blu-ray

 

The most advanced PlayStation console yet is coming. It's got 4K resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) gaming, but it won't play 4K Blu-ray discs.
