About this deal
Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands) may take longer to reach you. Despite the release of the PS5, it’s important to keep in mind that the popularity of the PS4 means most games will continue to be developed and designed with the last-gen console in mind. This means that you can expect popular multiformat properties like Call of Duty, FIFA, and Assassin’s Creed to continue releasing on the system for the foreseeable future. Even PlayStation exclusives, like Horizon Forbidden West, will also be available on the PS4 as well. In most cases, free PS4 to PS5 upgrades are available with these titles, so you’ll be able to take your software with you and reap the benefits later on. There are many years of life left in the PS4, and thus its PS Store remains online and fully functional. In fact, there’s an argument to be made that, at the time of typing, the PS4’s storefront is superior to the next-gen one; while it’s a little slower to access, it has more tabs and sorting options, allowing you to find the kind of content you’re looking for with superior ease. In June 2020, not long after a certain global pandemic called COVID 19 disrupted life as we knew it, Sony announced their new games console. It is, of course, the PS5. It is due for release at the end of the year along with an upgraded version, the PS5 Pro.

And if you want to push image quality to the max, the PS4 Pro has 4K resolution, but you'll need to have a 4K screen to enjoy this feature. Most titles that were available before the Pro was released look slightly better on the Pro. Those titles updated to support the enhanced graphics in the Pro are noticeably better looking than on the standard PS4. Because of the high focus on framerate in PlayStation VR, you'll see more detail in Pro Enhanced titles. As you can see in the chart, Sony uses the same CPU and a GPU that's a little more than twice the performance in the new PS4 Pro. There's also an updated version of the HDMI standard in the PS4 Pro, but there's no immediate difference in performance out of the box for video output. PlayStation 4 Pro also offers 4K video streaming and enhanced graphics on supported titles. Game developers can provide higher quality graphics to PS4 Pro gamers, clearly labeled with PS4 Pro Enhanced on the box.Bonus: if energy consumption is important for you, the PS4 Pro is the most power-hungry in the series.

This change in power consumption means the "slim" PS4 will consume far less power when performing the same tasks, including sitting idle. For parents, this means a cheaper electricity bill when your kid leaves the PS4 on all day because they're in the middle of an important part of the game. As mentioned above, despite ongoing refinement, the PS4’s user interface remains fully functional in 2020 without any real compromise. While loading and installing games isn’t as fast as on the PS5, it’s no slouch, and perfectly functional in 2021. It’s also fully integrated with the next-gen console: you can see what friends are playing, send messages, and form parties. Games that struggled in the past to maintain 30fps or 60fps on a standard PS4 will be able to offer a more consistent experience with the PS4 Pro through its "boost mode" feature. This basically means games that appear to stutter a little on a normal PS4 will look and play smoother on a PS4 Pro.These probably need little explanation. The PS4 Slim, as its name suggests, weighs less and is 40% smaller than the original PS4 model. The design itself is similar, so it's not a complete departure and still fits very much within the PS4 family of devices. Bottom line While it is possible to buy additional storage for your PlayStation, regardless of which one you buy, the 2TB option is available with some PS4 Pro versions means you wouldn't need to for much longer than if you had a less spacious PS4 Slim. PS4 Slim vs. PS4 Pro: Understanding 4K and HDR on PlayStation
Storage: the PS4 Pro has 1 TB (1000 GB), the Slim version is available in 500 GB or 1 TB. The original PS4 is only available with a 500 GB memory. Long-term, you'll probably want a PlayStation 4 Pro for better PlayStation VR gaming, even if you don't notice a huge difference in quality between the two right now. Bigger and better games will want that additional power. The biggest functional difference between the original PS4 and the new slimmer PS4 is power consumption. Sony claims the new PS4 has a max power draw of 165 watts, which sounds impressive next to the original 250w max of the first PS4 until you see most benchmarks. The original PlayStation 4 had an average power draw of 150w during its heaviest gameplay sessions and never pushed anywhere near that 250w max. It is slightly smaller, though, so there's that.
Power: the Pro edition has innovations that simply make it more powerful. In other words, it is faster and has a smoother refresh rate. Size & weight of the console: the Slim version is quite compact and light. The standard or original version is a little heavier. Lastly, the Pro is the biggest and heaviest. New PS4s are now available to buy from the official PlayStation Direct store. You have the option of buying the console by itself or getting it in a bundle with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. These are full price, but still considerably cheaper than a PS5. In a word: yes. If you’ve never owned a PS4 before, then you’ll have access to a treasure trove of essential titles that will keep you occupied for years to come, but there’s a large list of upcoming software on the horizon as well. This scales everything from smaller-scale indie titles, cross-platform multiformat releases, and even major exclusives like Horizon Forbidden West.
PlayStation VR performance is something altogether different. PS4 Pro was built to better support PlayStation VR, but even here, the differences are subtle on many titles.Finally, storage is an extremely important thing to keep in mind for your PlayStation Console. Every PS4 game takes up space on your hard drive, even if you buy a disc from the store. The games have to be partially installed on the console before playing, so storage is essential. If you buy games digitally, they can take up even more space on the drive included with your PlayStation.
