Sony PlayStation 4 Slim review

 

The PlayStation 4 Slim features some fun and useful upgrades over the original, but not enough to attract players who already have the original.

Faster Wi-Fi can make a big difference ; Smaller chassis with fun design ; Same great PS4 game library ; More affordable than ever

No more optical port ; More powerful PS4 console also available

PlayStation 4 review: fast, powerful, worth it

 

More Info48 hours with the PlayStation 4: gaming and first impressionsThe seven big little details we love about the PlayStation 4Sony

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...

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 Slim

 

The slimmer, redesigned PlayStation 4 Slim has all of the features of the original, with a lower price and twice the storage capacity.

Smaller, sleeker design. Supports the full PS4 game library, including PS VR. 1 TB hard drive.

No PS4 Pro-like hardware improvements. No optical audio output. Online multiplayer requires a PS Plus subscription.

If you don't have a PS4 yet and aren't swayed by the (uneven) graphical benefits of the PS4 Pro, the PS4 Slim offers the same excellent gaming experience in 1080p, and all of the storage, for $100 less. It remains an Editors' Choice as one of the best...

Sony PlayStation 4 Slim review

 

There are really only three things you need to know about the PlayStation 4 Slim.

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.

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...

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
