Sony PlayStation 4 Pro review

 

PlayStation 4 Pro is the first console to take 4K UHD gaming seriously.

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 PS4 Pro review

 

The PS4 Pro looks like a turbocharged version of the original PS4, and that's exactly what it is. The Pro has more powerful hardware and supports 4K games, HDR, faster frame rates and UHD video streaming.

The PS4 Pro launched in the UK on 10 November at a retail price of £349. That's £100 more than the PS4 Slim.

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
