The PlayStaton 4 Pro is set to be released on November 10th, 2016, but ahead of that time, a number of reviews have been released for the console, providing you with an idea of what the console is like ahead of its release.
Here’s a review roundup of all of the reviews that have been posted so far.
“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 happy to support it.”
“For newcomers to the world of PlayStation, PlayStation VR neophytes and 4K HDR TV owners, buying the PlayStation 4 Pro is an easy decision. However, for everyone else, there’s a chance the Pro’s benefits aren’t worth the extra cost.”
“If you don’t already own a PlayStation console and you’re looking to invest, the Pro is a no-brainer. You’re getting over twice the GPU power, a faster CPU, future-proofed display and streaming media support – and twice the hard drive space. The price-point is keen enough that it’s going to take some seriously aggressive bundling deals to make the standard PlayStation 4 look appealing.”
“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 snap up any piece of hardware that promises to be faster. Most consumers are better off waiting until more games get patched for the new system, and until Sony figures out its 4K media strategy.”
“If you already have a PS4, however, I wouldn’t make the upgrade unless you have a 4K HDR TV and the extra cash lying around. Graphics enthusiasts may appreciate the improved anti-aliasing and more vibrant colors, but the differences likely won’t blow most people away.
Regardless, the PS4 Pro is priced fairly, offers a plethora of features, and is the most powerful console you can buy today.”
“The PlayStation 4 Pro doesn’t show major, noticeable improvements in the handful of games we were able to test early, but that could change with titles coming in the months and years ahead.”
