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 review

 

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

Powerful hardware hasn’t even reached its full potential ; Much-improved DualShock 4 controller ; Multitasking allows background downloads, music over games and more ; Sharing content is simple ; Justifies owning a Vita

Many features still on the way, like Gaikai streaming games ; Baffling lack of DLNA and MP3 support

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 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...

PlayStation 4 Slim review: Your old PS4, but smaller -- not that anything's wrong with that

 

Sony's slimmed-down PS4 is mostly the same old black box we've known since 2013. And that's OK.

The newer PS4 has a smaller footprint, slick design, quieter operation and keeps intact all of the PS4 awesomeness it's offered since 2013. The slightly updated DualShock4 controller is a bonus.

The slim PS4 loses its optical audio port, which will be a bummer for third-party headphone users. The somewhat pricier PS4 Pro delivers a larger hard drive and the promise of better graphics.

The PS4 Slim is a deja vu game console: great for gamers on a budget, not quite as good as the PS4 Pro and skippable for any existing PlayStation 4 owner.

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

 

The Sony PS4 Pro is an upgraded, more powerful version of the PlayStation 4 game system, but it's only worth the extra cost for fanatics and certain new buyers.

More powerful hardware means some games can look better or play smoother. Slightly improved DualShock 4 controller.

Games need to be individually patched to benefit from the PS4 Pro's extra power. No Ultra HD Blu-ray playback.

If you haven't jumped up to 4K yet and you still have a PS4, you don't need to even consider upgrading to the PS4 Pro. If you don't own a current game system and have a 4K TV, especially one capable of HDR, you should consider the PS4 Pro. It offers...

PlayStation 4 review: Our take updated for holiday 2015

 

As it reaches its two-year anniversary, the PlayStation 4 hits its stride.

The PlayStation 4 serves up dazzling graphics, runs on a simplified and logical interface and boasts a fantastic controller. It has the upper hand in indie games and can stream a constantly growing list of legacy titles via PlayStation Now. The PS4...

The Xbox One has a slight edge in non-gaming entertainment features such as streaming content and media portal apps.

The PlayStation 4's beautiful graphics, smart interface, blazing performance, near-perfect controller and better indie offerings give it an edge over the Xbox One -- though that edge is ever-shrinking.

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...
