Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4)

 

Sony's PlayStation 4 is a sleek, powerful game console with an excellent controller and plenty of compelling titles.

Attractive, compact design. DualShock 4 feels much better than the Sixaxis or DualShock 3 controllers before it. Great streaming support. Many new features.

Most features require a PlayStation Network connection. Non-free-to-play multiplayer requires a PS Plus subscription. DualShock 4 lightbar can't be turned off.

Conclusions The Sony PlayStation 4 feels like a beefed-up PlayStation 3, and that's just fine. It has several new and useful features like sharing gameplay footage and handling multiple users at once, and the DualShock 4 is a fantastic upgrade over the...

PlayStation 4 review: fast, powerful, worth it

Dramatic improvement over PS3 gamepad ; Clickable touchpad ; The best triggers on any gamepad

Terrible battery life ; Analog stick coating isn't grippy enough

The DualShock 4 is everything gamers wanted from Sony's next gamepad. Unlike the DualShock 3, we only have minor complaints for the PlayStation 4's controller. It's not simply a controller we'll "put up with" for the rare exclusive PS4 titles; it's one...

Sleeker, faster and more flexible than ever, Sony's PlayStation 4 turns out to be a formidable force in the living room.

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.

Sony PlayStation 4 Review

 

So I finally bit the bullet.

First-time-out faults aside, the PS4 has a lot of potential, and of the two next-gen consoles that have come out, the PS4 seems to be the leaner, meaner, slightly more powerful game console. If I gambled, I’d go with the PS4; it may not have all of the...

Sony Playstation 4 - Does Greatness Await?

 

Sony's Playstation 4 will be the first next-gen console to reach Singapore, when it goes on sale tomorrow. But is it a worthy successor to the PS3? And does it offer enough to make it a day one purchase? We find out.

Slim and stylish console design ; Improved Dualshock 4 controller ; 4K resolution support ; More powerful hardware than Xbox One and Wii U ; Remote Play via PS Vita

Weak launch titles ; Short battery life on Dualshock 4 ; Restricted to 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n wireless ; Graphics don't look that much better than 2013 PS3 titles ; Not much support for PS Camera

There's lots to like about the Playstation 4: it's low-profile, runs quietly, and has a familiar but much improved controller. But right now, it just doesn't feel all that next-generation. The Playstation 2 and 3 both showed an immediate and obvious...
