The Sony PlayStation 4 Pro has been much awaited by fans of the Japanese tech and gaming giant, and one of the primary reasons is because long-time rival Microsoft already revealed their updated console months before, which is the Xbox One S. So how does Sony’s updated console come into the competition? Well, it is certainly more powerful than the original, which also means that it is pricier than the standard model. It also comes with 4K UHD and HDR support, which is a boon for gamers who have such displays. But what about the rest of the gaming community? You will acquire the advantage of playing your favorite PlayStation 4 games in a more powerful machine, and that’s pretty much it.
Only the Most Dedicated Fans Should Consider Getting the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro
When it comes to the design, the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro has points in trying to separate itself from the original model. It is now completely covered in a matte black casing rather than just partially matte and partially glossy. The large panel of this updated version makes the entire console look huge. However, looks can be deceiving since its dimensions is just at 2.4 x 11.6 x 12.5-inches. With these figures, it is just a bit wider and thicker than its predecessor. To complete the illusion of the larger size, Sony decided to make a three-tiered face for the console, as compared to the two-tiered front found on the PlayStation 4.
Aside from the console itself, the DualShock 4 controller for the Sony PS4 Pro also got a redesign. For this updated controller, the light strip can now be found just above the trackpad. The color of the light will match the light bar, which is found on the front of the controller. With this design choice, it allows players to see the status of their gamepad just by looking down on it, rather than flipping it up or turning it around. While a seemingly minute alteration, it does certainly help boost its usefulness to an already excellent design.
As mentioned earlier, the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro now comes with more power as you can now find a new AMD Radeon GPU within it. It has twice as much power than the original PlayStation 4, and it also has a clock speed boost. However, it still has the same amount of memory as that of its predecessor. Aside from the added power and additional support, there’s not much to say about this updated console. Hence, only the most devout of fans should consider purchasing this.
