PS4 Pro or PS4? Which Sony console is the best for you?
Sony PlayStation’s next-generation console is officially out now, but notoriously difficult to get hold of. check out our PS5 review and where to buy PS5 page to make sure you’re up-to-date. If you’re not sure whether you need the newest console, it’s also worth looking at our PS5 vs PS4 Pro guide too – though it’s likely the older console that’s going to be easier to find in the coming weeks.
Otherwise, read on for our PS4 Pro vs PS4 comparison below…
PS4 Pro vs PS4: which should you choose? Although we do have the PS5 on the market these days, some of us might still want to weigh up whether we should go with the old but reliant PS4, or the more powerful (and more expensive) PS4 Pro.
It’s a tough decision, particularly if you’re not sure what exact improvements Sony has made to the standard PS4 to justify its Pro label.
Although the PS4 and the PS4 Pro support the same library of games and the same peripherals, the key difference between the consoles is that the PS4 Pro is capable of playing some of those games in a higher resolution (up to 4K).
While the PS4 Pro isn’t as powerful as Sony’s newest next-generation console, the PS5, the PS4 Pro hardware is still a big improvement on the standard PlayStation 4 and it can offer better performance and visuals than the standard console as a result. With improved hardware, however, comes a higher price point and those with affordability in mind may not find the upgrades the PS4 Pro offers justify the increase in cost.
So, is the mid-generation PS4 Pro the console for you? Or is the standard version a better fit? Should you stop considering these two older consoles altogether and save up for the PS5 instead? Well, we’re going to delve into the price, design, specs, graphics, VR performance and other aspects of both consoles to help you make your choice between the PS4 and PS4 Pro. We’ve also added a section at the bottom of this piece about what you’ll be getting from the newest console: the PS5.
The Pro offers some rather obvious advantages over the original PS4, but there are still several reasons to go for the latter, not least the lower price. Take a look at the list of current deals below, plucked from the web’s top retailers.
Of course, if you decide that a PS4 Pro is more up your alley, you’re in for a treat –especially if you have a new 4K HDR television to play it on. You’ll find the lowest prices on Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro further down below.
Knowing the difference between the two PS4 models can make all the difference during sales, as you’ll be able to spot a genuine bargain much more easily.
