    Xbox owner finally decided to get a PS4 Pro

    I have been an Xbox supporter since the 360 and currently own an Xbox 1. I haven't owned a PS since PS2 but due to a string of great games that PS4 has released and the drought of good games for the Xbox (at least until the fall) I decided to pick up an PS4 Pro. I will be getting a Xbox 'Scorpio' when that is released so I really am pretty impartial to the console wars on which is better system/company. I also have a 4K TV with HDR which is the reason I went with the Pro. So to get me through the drought of game releases I decided to pick up a PS4 Pro and catch-up on some of the games I have been missing out on, starting with Horizon Zero Dawn. I have had it for about 4 days now so here are some observations from someone who has been out of the PS environment for a few years and now jumping back in. Also, some things that I like/don't like versus the Xbox. The PS4 Pro on a 4K HDR TV looks great, however, the HDMI cable it came with was having issues with the 'handshake' and my TV screen would blink on and off to black when HDR was turned on. So much so it was unplayable with HDR turned on but worked fine without it. This is a pretty common issue out there if you look it up. I decided to buy a new high speed HDMI cable, that I bought online, and that seemed to fix the issue. I think I saw it blink once in the 2 days I have played since it has been installed. I have an older Xbox 1, and not the 'S', so obviously having the extra power of PS4 Pro on a 4K TV looks better. Scorpio, when that comes out, should look just as good or if not better than the PS4 Pro by sounds of the specs. Menu System - The menu system is fairly easy but I don't know what half of the PS apps/programs are. There doesn't seem to be too much explanation for things but I am slowly figuring it out. Maybe because I am more used to the Xbox, and haven't had a PS in a several years, but I find the Xbox menu easier. For instance I was having a hard time finding a recently released game demo in the PS4 store but, again, it may be my lack of familiarity with the menu system on where to go. Xbox I would have gone right to the store and then 'game demos' to find it and it didn't seem as clear on the PS4. Controllers - I like the Xbox controller a little more. The PS4 controller is great but I just like the overall feel and layout of the Xbox controller more. I also have an Xbox Elite controller which has great build quality and customization but granted is something I paid extra for. I also don't like that the PS4 controller battery is not removable. The Xbox has the option of AA batteries for which I have great, long lasting rechargeable batteries that I can swap out so I never had to plug the controller in. The PS4 doesn't seem to have the longest battery life and your only option is to plug it in. The PS4 controller overall does feel good and the latest version is way better than the old version I remember. Overall,PS4 Pro is a great system but will be behind in specs/power when the Xbox Scorpio comes out. Which then leaves the games, which is what matters most but a lot of big titles will be on both systems so it will come down to the exclusives in the end. I would say PS has had the edge on exclusives, especially lately. I am just glad that I am now lucky enough to get the best of both worlds. So overall I am glad I made the purchase and look forward on catching up on some games that I wasn't able to play on the Xbox. I am playing Horizon now and it is fantastic and looks great on a 4K HDR TV (once I got the HDR working)

    Worth the upgrade

    Before I start, please note I've upgraded from my PS3 purchased back in 2008 to the PS4 Pro. As most reviews state if you don't have a 4K TV or one that supports HDR, you won't see a noticeable difference off the bat, however if you plan on upgrading your TV in the near future and are also interested in getting Playstation VR, then skip the slim and get the pro. For potentially better graphics, VR and twice the internal storage space, I feel it's worth the extra $100 for a better future experience. The only thing I wasn't aware of was that now in order to play any games online, you NEED to purchase a Playstation Plus account, which was not needed for PS3, so I'm hoping the benefit of $60 for a year subscription is worth it in the long run. The only other WARNING I will give is that if you're like me and have an HD 1080p television (NOT 4K) once you plug the system in, you will most likely hear sound, but see nothing on the screen. You'll need to make sure the machine is off, with the controller unplugged, and turn on the system in safe mode by holding the power button and waiting to hear it beep a second time. You will be prompted to plug in the controller then a screen comes up to change some display settings, change the HDCP setting to 1.4 support only, then restart the system and you should be all set. I nearly returned the unit because I thought it wouldn't work with my TV...needless to say it does, but not right out of the box. Still tinkering with settings, but overall, I'm happy that I purchased the pro, because once I crack and get that 4K TV, it'll be like a second gift I've already paid for.

    Upgraded Game Quality (From a 1080P Perspective)

    I just got my PS4 Pro yesterday- a day earlier than expected, but hey- I was excited it did! The sooner the better, yeah? So upon firing it up, transferring all my data from my original PS4 (which didn’t take long considering I was near full on the old one), and what have you- I was eager to try out the games that were Pro ready including the PSVR. Mind you, I ran this on a nice 1080p television. I tried out games that were both Pro ready and non along with turning on the Boost Mode (Settings>System>Boost mode) and saw some improvements on the framerate. The hues, dynamic lighting, and sharper image made the game stand out in comparison to the old PS4. Add to it there are slight more texture quality on Pro games as well. Honestly, I saw no difference in the loading times as I played games on both systems to see which look and ran faster though, which really is not an issue. Next, I put on my PSVR to see how that is on the Pro. The VR games ran smoother framerates such as Gran Turismo Sport, Dirt Rally, Drive Club VR (Yeah, I am a racing fanatic and the sole reason why I bought a PSVR), etc, etc. Games that tend to drop framerate at certain points due to high volumes of objects moving at once were resolved. That, and add all the previously mentioned improvements before and I will say it is a win on that part. In conclusion, was it worth getting? (In my opinion) It surely is if you are looking to get your first PS4. Otherwise, like what I and a lot other original owners did- just take your time getting it unless you are an avid PSVR player. I am certain there is a very noticeable difference on a 4K versus a 1080P television and I look forward to seeing it for myself in the future.

    A good upgrade with a couple flaws

    To start off, I upgraded from the base ps4, not the slim. I owned it for about three years and figured that I got my moneys worth, and decide to upgrade. All in all to upgrade I spent around $300, I had coupons. I bought the ps4 pro when I had internet unavailable to me and so in order to not lose my save data from my old ps4 I had to go through this big process of downloading my save files to a usb and transferring it to my ps4 pro. It was stressful because I wasn't sure it would work, but it did. Also there was the countless dlc, add-ons and game patches for my games that I would have to redownload. My arms were tied, and so I had no choice but to go over to a friends house and download everything there. Without these game patches you won't be able to take advantage of the pro's true potential. Once I had everything installed and downloaded I decided to play two games, one that is 4k enabled, Hitman, and one that wasn't, The Walking Dead A New Frontier. Hitman looked ok, I didn't see too much improvement and the screen produced lag between aufion and video. It was bad. After a couoke tweeks I was able to fix it. The Walking dead did however look more clean in its presentation. The frames were much smoother and overall ran better. However, it did manage to freeze and crash a lot. I had to uninstall and reinstall the game, and download all the episodes again to fix the issue. So, all in all, it was an ok upgrade with lots of issues. I'd say it is worth it with all the new games coming out soon. If you find it on sale, definitely get one, jist be prepared for some bumps in the road and you'll be more than happy.

    Parental controls and profile mgmt could be better

    Of the 4 consoles we have (Wii, WiiU, Xbox One, PS4), the PS4 is the least flexible in terms of parental controls and profile management. If you're purchasing for an adult or older child (13+) this may not be an issue. PS4 gives you 11 pre-defined parental control levels in addition to age limitations. I would prefer to have the ability to grant exceptions for some games. We set up a master profile and separate sub profiles for each of our kids (11 and 10) which allows us to assign different parental controls to each sub profile. The downside of this is, when they receive PS gift cards the balance is credited to the master profile and there isn't an option to distribute gift card funds to sub profiles. You can set spending limits for charging against a credit card on the master profile but this doesn't solve the issue of managing gift card balances for multiple users. Additionally, it appears that online gameplay is restricted by default for any sub profile where the user is under 13 years of age, which I'm fine with except that there is not a setting to allow the user to play the game offline. A few of the games we bought for our 11 year old require online gameplay and they will not even launch from his profile, so the only way he can play them is from the master profile, which defeats the entire purpose of parental controls. In terms of overall quality, graphics, processor speed, and ease of use, PS4 is great. My only complaint is the lack of flexibility in setting parental controls and profile management, which I feel Microsoft nailed with its Xbox platform.

    This is the by far the best counsole I have owned obviously it’s the most powerful and with my 4k tv compared the the Xbox one S battlefield one addition and playing the same games on both platforms the PlayStations speed and framerate is second to none. Be sure to have a good tv that can atleast display HDR or it may be worth u waiting. I guess it depends on what you feel is worth spending money on. I also put a Samsung internal SSD evo 850 1tb drive around the same time I got the PS4 pro... and I can’t beliebe how fast I load games in multiplayer and how fast games download. The only thing I feel should have done for the pro is make a better cooling system with the Xbox X coming out with glycol cooling liquid tubes instead of fans that attract dust and keep ur hardware running optimal after long hours of play. The PS4 pro starts to act up after a couple outs of online play as I noticed Sony has a hard time deciding weather to fit slot of hardware taking up space on cooling fans etc or putting in very high tech upgrades from the regular PS4. Xbox also has PS4 beat on their server quality. I have a feeling u should wait for the Xbox x if u can’t decide. But the PS4 pro blows away my Xbox one S so far in terms of overall performance.

    Original ps4 owner that decided to upgrade here. I was really excited for my pro, and upon receiving it i was not disappointed. The outer hardware itself sports a new shell casing design that's both modern and minimalistic, and is a small but nice departure from previous iterations of the OG PS4. The hard drive latch has been moved to the rear of the console and you no longer have to feel like youre about to tear apart the casing whenever you want to upgrade or swap the internal hdd. Pop an ssd in and you'll be in for a nice ride. Buttons on the console itself were moved a bit and are smaller, ive had trouble finding them in the dark. It comes with a new controller which is sleeker and has a new touchpad light, but all in all nothing too special. Of the pro itself, the new internal specs are pretty impressive and when put to use, whether for stable 60fps, 4k and hdr, or both, it makes the upgrade extremely worth it. (e.g. Rachel and Clank and Tomb Raider look GREAT). In order to access these you have to go to each games settings menu to toggle off compatibility mode and turn on the pro support - whatever that game's features are. My only gripes are the fact that only a handful of such titles are currently supporting this feature since the ps4 pro is so new. 2017 going forward, however, all titles under the platform are expected to require pro support. I would recommend having a 4k TV with HDR to get the most out of the ps4 pro, although you can still get some of its benefits with a 1080p.

    Since launch day of the first PS4 I held back on purchasing it, not because I am an Xbox fan, but at the time there were not that many exclusives for the PS4 that truly captured my attention; the exclusives at the time were not 'Console sellers'. I waited until something came around or enough Japanese tittles piled up that interested me to purchase the PS4. The years went by and the time for the PS4 Pro was suddenly upon us. Like before, I did not purchase it right away. Horizon Zero Dawn was the game that made me want to purchase this console and the upcoming title of 'Days Gone'. Initial Pros: - Graphics are slightly better than expected, but are not 'game changers' by any means. - Looks sleek compared to my bulk Xbox One (Day One Edition) - Smooth gameplay if you opt for performance and not graphics in the game's menu Initial Cons: - Battery life on the controller is rather short, I get approximately 4 - 6 hours max of gameplay out of one full charge. I hear that is about average, but I get at least twice that much on my Xbox One controller. - In game audio stutter. I don't know if this is just my controller, but no matter what headset I use, I cannot get rid of this in game audio stutter. It does not happen all the time, but it does happen enough to be annoying; also, when this happens, the controller seems to slightly loose connectivity with the PS4 Pro cause a slight lag in the response of button input. Overall I am pleased with y purchase and do not regret it. I will be going into Best Buy to see if they can do anything concerning my controller.

    Exclusives Only

    Let me start by saying that I am not any type of console fanboy. When I had the ps2, I had the Original Xbox, Ps3 along with the Xbox 360, Now Ps4 Pro along with the Xbox One X. I buy both consoles solely for Exclusivity of games. I play video games Period. TBH Ps4 has the majority of exclusive games. Xbox has their share of exclusive but not enough to compete with Ps4 in that aspect. I will say though that there’s two things that I like more on the xbox and it’s just my honest opinion and personal preference, others might agree with me on this….Ps4 Plus online play cannot match/compare to Microsoft’s Xbox Live’s Multiplayer gaming. For that reason alone when I purchase a cross platform multiplayer game, I will choose an Xbox One game for the sole reason of multiplayer gaming. I have compared both in this regard with two of the biggest titles (Battlefield 1 & COD WW2), Way smoother and easier to get into a multiplayer match than playing on a Ps4. Reason 2 is…Xbox one x’s graphic are a lot crispier and sharper than the Ps4. Before the One X came out it was safe to say that Ps4 had the graphics aspect on lock compared to the Xbox One(s), not the case anymore. Again, just my personal preference. I like both consoles and I have the best of both worlds so my gaming fun is complete. Hope this helps anyone.

    Solid Introduction to 4k

    The visual enhancements that this console offers is amazing. I traded in my original PS4 and I purchased this system to play Horizon Zero Dawn and a few other games releasing in the future and stream video apps in 4k. Horizon Zero Dawn looked incredible in 4k as well as the other couple of 4k enhanced games that I played. The apps leave something to be desired, however. Amazon Video doesn't currently stream in 4k on the console and the YouTube app's design on the system doesn't allow you to manually select the resolution of your videos so if you have borderline internet speeds you may not be able to view a 4k video at that exact resolution. I've had a great experience with the Hulu app, but its 4k content selection is very minimal. I haven't tried Netflix's 4k content yet though. I would definitely suggest ensuring that your internet speeds be consistent enough to allow for constant 4k playback if streaming content interests you, as anyone would suggest. Overall, your games will definitely look beautiful with the 4k enhancements, the system doesn't seem that much noticably faster than my original PS4 even with the specific performance Boost mode on, and streaming apps should improve in the future once more content is released in 4k from more providers (i.e. HBOgo and Amazon Video). The current offerings of Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube should suffice most buyers taking their first steps into 4k.

    This review isn't for the PS4, rather the PS4 Pro. I've had a PS4 for a couple years now and absolutely love it. After the bumpy, and clunky PS3 I didn't expect Sony to come back with a system that rivaled the PS2 in terms of sheer appeal to both gamers and developers alike, but they did. Anyway, I traded in my PS4 for the Pro as I just can't help myself always wanting the newest tech toy. I will likely do the same with my Xbox One for the Scorpio next year. The performance of the Pro doesn't feel much different than the base model. To be fair, I've read the differences vary from game to game so it's probably that I haven't played a game yet that has drastic changes. What I have noticed is that it picks up my wireless signal much stronger than the base model and somehow it picks up a faster speed... This helps a lot for remote play. The design is very similar to the base model so it's not different enough to say I like it any more or less. I wish there were color options for the system like the Xbox One. Overall, the PS4 is a fantastic system. Unless you have money to burn and/or are obsessed with having the newest gaming tech then upgrading may leave you disappointed. If you are just now getting a PS4 for the first time then I'd recommend this model as I believe/hope the higher horsepower will yield greater value as time passes. Happy gaming!

    Ideal for the 4K gamer

    PROs: Fast, Powerful, wide selection of games see a visual improvement due to settings adjustment and feature called "Boost". CONs: Big console, settings can be tricky to setup: HDMI issue caused gaming to be impossible for the first week of use, detailed below, and can get hot so make sure it is well ventilated. In-Depth Review: Powerful console with some amazing features. It is ideal for the 4K gamer experience, meaning you should have a 4K tv with some of the fancier setting, i.e. UHD, HDR, high refresh rate, and a bright display with a wide color gamut to better differentiate colors from one another. The product works great out of the box, however the HMDI cable that came with it would cut out audio and visual signals every few seconds and would take a few seconds to come back before repeating. My advice would be to buy a higher quality HDMI cable and see if it isn't a handshake issue, which could also be a problem depending on the tv it is connected to. the HDMI cable and some tweaking of settings fixed the issue after a few days of trouble. Since then, no issues and have been enjoying the 4K gaming.

    4K Console gaming

    Previously owned the classic PS4 which I purchased on release. Over the years, with the evolution of PS4 games, I began to see dropped frames, and high amounts of lag. In the more recent games like God of War, the game was almost unplayable. Fast forward, I picked up a C8 OLED and the PS4 pro. It is far and away a better console than the original in game. There is still some lag, but overall a much better experience as I am now in 4K vs 1080. My only real gripe is how slow and laggy the basic menu is, especially with any program running in background. Pause Netflix to play a game... instant regret. Exit game to join voice chat, better have a minute to spare. Overall a huge step up from the original but not perfect. Biggest disappointment is the lack of 4K blu ray support, however I knew of this going in, and did not dock a star.

    Noticeable improvement from regular PS4 w/ good TV

    I purchased the pro model after my first gen PS4 died and around the same time I purchased a 4K TV w/ HDR. The difference or improvement in game play & graphics isn't always incredibly obvious, but the system does appear to run more smoothly especially during chaotic scenarios where I had previously notice frame rates dip on the original PS4 (think GTA when you have a 5 star police chase) or screen tearing on Wildlands when scanning the massive open world. I honestly do not know if checking the 'boost' button in the system settings actually does anything, but I generally keep it on unless I notice a game that seems to be buggier than usual (seems to make Fifa 18 frame rates unstable, but haven't experienced any other game issues). If you have a 4K/HDR TV and you want the best picture quality, I think its a worthy investment if you are loyal to PS. I bought it when they had the $350 price tag promo over the holidays which certainly helped in the decision making process between this instead of a xbox1x.

    Purchased my PS4 pro after my PS4 finally gave out. I use my PS4 for streaming as well as gaming. Netflix in HDR is nice. Load times seem a bit faster... But honestly was expecting a bigger difference. Games look great in HDR. I noticed the difference immediately with Nioh. Overall I'm very pleased with the unit except for the lack of 4K disc support. Considering that Sony came out with the Blu Ray format, to have XBOX support the format and not a Sony product seems weird. I know that disc technology is going away, however I feel that they should have supported the technology because it's not DEAD yet. Also know that Sony's intent was a solid gaming system however, they could have had that and a bit more. One other little note to point out, my 1st gen PS3 supported 3D technology right out of the box before 3D was a thing for a second. Would have been nice to have 4K disc support instead of having to buy a machine for that as well.

    PS4 pro is a console that set super high standards for a relatively affordable system. Danymic 4K gaming or even checkerboard 1800p requires a lot of hoursepower to achieve but the console seems to be doing an adequate good job at rendering that resolution at 30fps. To play the games at 4K you need to have a high end PC with GTX 1080 that will run you close to $2K. This is a $400 machine and it is a great value proposition for those of us who are on a budget but still want to experience games at QHD or UHD. In my opinion Horizon Zero Dawn is the game best demonstrates PS4 pro's full potential. It runs smoothly at 30fps while rendering beautiful image quality with HDR. That said the console is not without issues. Certain games such as Rise of the Tomb Raider, The Last of Us keep randomly crushing. Don't know what the issue but it mostly happens when at 4K resolution. This is why I rate the console at 4 stars. Sony or and its developers, please fix those ramdom crushes.

    The only true HDR/4K console currently

    I own a 60 inch 4K display and with having both an Xbox One S and PS4 Pro, this is the ultimate 4K gaming console. It is not however the ultimate 4k media player as the Xbox One S offers playback on physical UHD discs. For whatever reason, Sony opted out of including it into the Pro. If movie watching with physical discs isn't your thing, then its no big deal. The option to play your PS4 games* with 60fps or 4K display and optimized visuals is welcoming in an industry that is already behind PC gaming the moment the consoles come out. Keep in mind, not every PS4 game takes advantage of the Pro's power. Its selective based on the desire by the developers, I played The Last of Us, Rise of the Tomb Raider, TitanFall 2, The Last Guardian, Bound to see the visual changes. I only recommend buying this PS4 model if you own or plan on buying a 4K TV or monitor very soon. Having a 1080p display will offer slight enhancements, its not worth the upgrade if you already have a standard PS4

    I love my PS4 - it definitely gets the most play out of all the current-gen systems I own (PS4, X1, Wii U, Vita, 3DS), so the PS4 Pro is pretty much a no-brainer, since all the PSN PS4 purchases I made come right over and I want them to look as good as possible. If you're looking for a HUGE difference in image quality and/or frame-rate you might be disappointed, especially if you don't have a 4K TV. Also, I do have a gripe with how some games don't make it apparent just HOW they've been Pro-ified at this point in time. It does seem like more and more games are letting you choose between upping the frame-rate or resolution (I pretty much always go w/ FR) which is nice - I hope more games do this in the future. Basically, if you're looking to future-proof your console for 4K, don't have a PS4 yet and have the extra cash, get the Pro. It's entirely compatible w/ every PS4 game, PSVR works a bit better on it and more and more games are using the extra power.

    After purchasing a new LG OLED, I had to take advantage of the 4k & HDR abilities with a new PS4. I'm entrenched in the Playstation universe, so I never gave the Xbox serious consideration. I like the PS4 Pro, it does a great job with 4k & HDR games. Additionally, it does a good job of helping to boost non 4k games beyond what an average PS4 could do. That being said, it's disappointing this doesn't include a 4k Blu Ray player. Also, the design is still lame and needs some work - Sony continues to mess up the most simply part of the PS4, the power & ejects buttons. The small capacitive buttons on the original weren't good and were easy to mix up, the new PS4 Pro doesn't help solve that problem unfortunately. All in all though, a solid upgrade if you have a 4k & HDR TV. If you don't, save your money and keep your original PS4.

    I get it. Some people don't like this PS Model because it can't play 4k. So. What. The advantages of having a Dedicated 4k movie player is leaps and bounds over simply playing it in a video game console. Having a much better picture than a Console should be your first clue. Don't make the mistake and cheapen out ; you've just spent 400$ (maybe more) on a 2 year old released system. It's a decent system but not exactly new. Sure , there is going to be a PS5, but any release date is speculation. You should have a 4k TV , proper HDMI connections, and a solid sound system. Don't hold out. If you are going to buy a PS4 Pro because of the 4k and 5ghz internet connections , buy solid kit. One faulty cable or lack thereof is a difference between "meh" and "WOOT".
