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 has the chance to do what few people or companies can do, and correct its errors of the past. The manufacturer

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...

Review: Sony PlayStation 4

 

Sony serves up power and performance with the PS4

Great design, excellent build quality- Cutting-edge processor and graphics performance- Much improved OS and UI- DualShock 4 controller outstanding- Superb second-screen options with PS Vita, iOS, Android- PlayStation Plus great value- Expandable storage

Limited multimedia functionality at launch- Will take time for Sony to fully unlock its potential- Currently not a lot of must-have gaming titles

Sony PS4 review

 

Sony has ignored its rival's attempts to take over the living room, as Microsoft integrates media services such as television into the Xbox One. Instead, the Japanese giant plans to focus the PlayStation 4's abilities on pure gaming.

What first hits you about the PlayStation 4 is how small it is. Thinking back to the gigantic launch version of the PS3, this tight angular design seems sleek in comparison, with zero wasted space or bulk. While most would say good looks won't...

Sony PlayStation 4 Review

 

The PlayStation 4 is the best video game console. Its PC-like components promise a reliable gaming experience with continued innovation, and if you fill up your hard drive, you can install a replacement with ease. Sony regularly issues system patches...

The PlayStation 4 offers a wide variety of gaming experiences, and its PlayStation Plus service awards players with two free PS4 games each month.

This console lacks video chat and many multimedia apps.

The PS4 has everything you want in a console: great games, interesting features and long-term value.

Sony PS4 review: its lead this generation only grows wider

 

The Sony PlayStation 4 couldn't have asked for a better start to its life cycle with Microsoft spectacularily dropping the ball with its mishandling of the Xbox One in its build-up and opening 12 months. In the two and a half years that have followed,...

Powerful spec ; Great controller ; Stylish looks

Lack of exclusive games ; Not backwards compatible ; Media a bit light

The PlayStation 4 is a fast, great-looking, powerful console at a not-silly price that also packs the best controller that's adorned a PlayStation so far. It has a fair amount of good games of all sizes and price points to play from the off, and its...
