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'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 review

 

4K gaming for less than $500 ; Improves visuals on select PlayStation VR titles ; Makes all games run slightly better than standard PS4 ; Looks good even on 1080p TVs ; Supports all PS4 games

HDR can be very difficult to set up ; Very few titles offer 4K support at launch ; No 4K Blu-ray Player

There are a lot of questions you need to ask and answer before buying a PS4 Pro if you want to get the most out of the console. Do you own a 4K HDR 10 television? Does that TV have an HDMI port on the physical set? Do you use a receiver or switcher for...

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

PlayStation 4 Pro review (updated): A futureproof game console waiting for more compelling games

 

The PlayStation 4 Pro promises enhanced 4K visuals for certain games. But at launch, it's a tough sell.

The PS4 Pro outputs a 4K- and HDR signal that's compatible with high-end TVs, and promises better visuals and increased frame rates for certain games. The console includes a 1TB hard drive, and it works with all PS4 games, apps and accessories to date.

Out of the gate, only a handful of titles offer dramatic improvements. In reality, most games that support Pro enhancements don't offer a drastic difference in quality when comparing standard and Pro games side-by-side. Specific information on game...

The PlayStation 4 Pro only shows noticeable improvements in a limited number of the games we were able to test, but that could change with titles coming in the months and years ahead.

PlayStation 4 Pro review: 4K gaming is here

 

The PlayStation 4 Pro marks a turning point for the modern console era. In fact, it redefines what a "console" even means. Consoles are supposed to offer "good enough" graphics at an attractive...

4K gaming looks great ; Only $100 more than the PS4 slim ; A year before Project Scorpio

No 4K Blu-rays ; Not exactly "true" 4K ; Few Pro Enhanced titles at launch

Is $399 for 4K gaming too good to be true?

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.
