    I've read a lot of comments from people who do not even own this device yet... to those people I say get a life. I purchased this about 2 weeks ago and here are my impressions thus far: a. Physically: if you had the original PS4 the size difference is not that much of an issue but if you had the slim model.. make room. its at least 1/2 - 3/4 " taller and a bit deeper. (still smaller than the original xbox one though) b. Game play: FIRST I DO NOT OWN A 4K TV!!! I'm speaking from a decent 1080P HD TV. I've tried several different games and modes and I'm comparing to my XBox one in regards to speed. I played Dishonored (definitive edition) on both systems. Game play seems smoother on the PS4 Pro, and screens load A LOT faster. Visually I cant tell a difference ON THIS GAME mainly because its not optimized for the improved PS4 Pro. Smite: I played on both systems (if you don't know Smite is an online MOBA style game similar to League of Legends) Game play wise both systems play about the same. Visually video is slightly better on the Pro than Xone. (lines are sharper, color gradation is much better) Rise of the Tomb Raider. I have about an hour or so on both systems but THIS game made me glad I choose to pick up a PS Pro. Even though its a 1080 TV the graphics and frame rate are SOOOOOO much better. Its almost like watching a tv show. game play is smooth as silk, lines are crisp and sharp, textures and colors Pop and all those little details like snow and rain make this a cut WAY above the other machine. possible problems I haven't checked yet: I read that there may be an issue with textures and frame rate dropping (from 60 fps to 55-58fps) in games like Skyrim and The last of us. I read that its not necessarily a HARDWARE issue so much as a developer issue. IF this is true I believe a patch down the line would correct this issue. (remember this system was only released 2 weeks ago... updates will be coming) Seeing as how these are the only two games that I've heard of this happening to, I wouldn't stress it too much. the work around is if you drop the video to 30fps you won't have this issue at all. Other down side, if your playing at higher frame rates... the fan kicks on and although not as loud as previous Playstations it can be noticeable. c. basic stuff: the controller is very comfortable to hold and maintains its charge for a good many hours. (I average about 2-3 hours a night and may have to charge it by the 3 or 4 th night.) I have Turtle Beach Stealth 400 headset from my previous PS4 works even better because I don't need the Optical cable. True Bluetooth. The increase processing power and larger hard drive alone makes the extra 100 bucks worth it. If you have any intention of doing the VR thing you have to get this version. Hands down. d. oh the Blue ray player.. some people are complaining about the Pro not having a 4K blue ray. Me personally I don't care. I watch most of my movies via streaming anyway. However to those that do watch blue ray, 4k resolution will only affect 4k blue rays. Any non 4k blue rays will still look the same. For me this was not a deal breaker but thats just me. Thats about all I can think of.. I tried to keep it very factual and straight forward. I would definitely recommend this device to any and anyone wanting a Playstation.

    Assuming you have a 4K TV

    I want to start off saying I am an Xbox guy through and through, from 6th grade all the way through college I have played Xbox and have only had the same complaints as the rest of us do with Xbox and I love it. That being said my favorite system today is the PS 4 Pro, the picture quality is beautiful, flawless frame rate and a much easier interface to use when not in game but rather surfing around what else the console has to offer. I bought call of duty infinite warfare legacy edition and played the modern warfare and was blown away at the quality of the remastered game. Then I played Infinite warfare and could believe the console was only 400 bucks, most beautiful game I have ever played graphically! At first I was super skeptical about buying this console because my brother had a PS 3 in the past and I really never liked it, but I am a graphics fanatic and couldn't pass up the idea of a "4K" gaming console for 400 bucks. Granted there are games where it is not 4K and even the ones that claim to be but aren't true 4K still blow everything else out of the water (to complain about 90% 4k when the human eye cant pick up the actual pixel resolution of 4k for 20/20 vision its pretty dumb to complain about "not 4K")! Also there is the issue of no 4K blue ray player in the system which for me isn't a problem, the 4K blue rays are more expensive and I just buy digital now anyway or watch Netflix which is crazy good. If you plan on using a Vizio tv you might run into problems BUT, it is an easy fix just go to YouTube, it takes like 3 minutes. I am fully aware the new Xbox Scorpio is going to be released in the fall 2017 but this system is remarkable and if you are like me and love high quality graphics and just remarkable everything then this console is for you! (coming from a die hard Xbox fan) If you look at most reviews lower than a 3 the complaint is about the lack of a 4K blue ray player and if that is their biggest/only complaint about a 4k (even if in some cases not "True 4k" but 90%) and thats not a real concern for you then I believe this will be the best console choice you have ever made (to date) if you appreciate graphics. This review could go on and on but chances are you need to do research on it more instead of hear my opinion if you are on the edge, but I personally love this machine its sleek beautiful fast and easy and I recommend it highly! (3 friends came over saw me playing Call of Duty Infinite and Modern Warfare and went out and bought their own after live real in person game play for only 2 hours... just saying)

    Xbox owner finally decided to get a PS4 Pro

    Posted

    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)

    The Best Playstation Yet!

    I'm a gamer and own both PS and Xbox including a gaming desktop. When it comes to consoles and it's new generation hardware it has to offer to every gamer since the dawn of modern gaming of the 90's; this generation has surpassed even the limits of what console is capable of. To my review of the Xbox a very capable "media box", I call it has an incredible ability to navigate fast and efficiently through apps. Although even though the hardware is similar in many ways to the playstation 4 spec wise it comes short of gaming performance. Now this is coming from regular console first before the pro series. Both ps4 reg. And xbox one have the same issue. They both have graphic lags on frame rate which drops below 40 to 30 fps at same point when pixel or as u say graphics pop up suddenly which effects game performance greatly. Yet i get this more on the xbox one more often than i have it on the ps4. Ps4 made slightly better mostly for gaming but for media, ehhh a little iffy. Navigation in media is slow compared to the xbox media, but when it come to gaming, the ps4 excels at this. Now when it comes to players competitive wise, it was lacking before the holiday season on the ps4 side. But on Xbox u have pro players everywhere. Yet dont let the pros fool yeh some play with aim assist which isn't pro. Now coming holiday season their has been a big jump in the Playstation community of more competitve game play. Now onto the pro the ps4 surpasses that of the regs on every level its fast at everything not to mentioned its overclocked so keep it cool please. Bigger in size and more options in "setting" allows u to adjust the pros graphic control. Only the ps4 has this capability on the pros nothing else at moment though besides pc. Fps i barely get any fps lag when playing games. The motion is fluid and graphics are stable. So far ive played 70hrs on bf1, 14hrs on dreadnought, 6 hrs on fortnite, and 3hrs on war thunder. I havent had problem graphic wise at all. Although the controls on both consoles take time getting used to its worth the buy. I recommend buying which ever your preference is. If u want gaming besides media navigation and enjoy great exp gaming go playstation. If u want great media over gaming go xbox. Competitve gaming will change this holidays season u will see a giant shift from xbox to ps4. Have fun everyone and merry chirstmas i hope this review helps. P.S There is no optical cable port on reg ps4 (slim). If u have a wired surround sound your gonna need a pro. Thats my tip to anyone who purchase the ps4.

    For some people, the TV resolution doesn't matter that much but I'm a bit picky. I pay attention to the image quality whether I'm watching a movie, a tv show or playing games. I lose interest easily if the picture quality is not good. My primary reason to upgrade console was to match my SUHD TV (8000 Series) while I play games. I played a couple of games on both PS4 and PS4 Pro, a couple of movies using Amazon app through PS4 and PS4 Pro. The difference in picture quality was noticeable. I'm not sure if there would be any difference in picture quality between PS4 and PS4 Pro if you have a 1080p TV. I don't rent or buy Blu-ray discs, so I don't care about the 4k Blu-ray player, for some people this could be a deal breaker. It all depends on what your priorities are. Mine were to buy a console to PLAY GAMES with good resolution. For other things (such as movies or TV shows) either I use the app on my Smart TV or watch cable. I like the slightly changed controller (feel, headphone option and the cool blue light). I never had any major issues with PS3 Slim (besides occasional freeze) and PS4 (none), so I decided to stick with the brand that I trust completely. It's been more than 2 months and I'm enjoying PS4 Pro. I've played games for more than 12 hours continuously without any issues and I got really hooked while I was playing Horizon Zero Dawn, a perfect combination to get the best out of the upgrade (SUHD TV, PS4 Pro and a game that's probably the best in graphics on any console). I've posted a couple of screenshots of a game that I played on PS4 Pro. I'm very happy with my decision of upgrading from PS4 to PS4 Pro.

    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.

    An improvement over the original

    I recently upgraded from the launch PS4 to a PS4 Pro. While I would say the biggest reason to upgrade is for the 4k capabilities, those with 1080p TVs will also see the improvements. My own use is with a 1080p tv. As newer games are released, improved graphics and/or 60fps modes are becoming available that definitely improves the gameplay over the base PS4. Further, Sony unlocked an improved graphics mode that runs games without special Pro graphics options at its native GPU speed/capabilities (it previously limited it to match the base PS4). This has made most games run at smoother frame rates, in some cases even letting games hit 30fps/60fps where it previously would only run at a few FPS less. In Doom, I can crank the field of view up and still hit a constant FPS that appears to be 60fps (I believe DigitalFoundry confirms this), where it previously would have dips or sit in the 50-55fps range. In GTA V, there is less stutter and slow downs while driving around the city. I've read some games have issues (depending on how they are coded), however, I have not run into any yet. Having a USB port in the back is a nice touch as well instead of having to have things plugged into the front (very messy looking). The cubby in my TV stand is kinda small, so I run small usb fans to pull in cool air by the side input and push out hot air of the back, so being able to plug into the back makes the set up look much nicer. This is much quieter than my launch PS4, which sounded like a jet engine. The physical buttons are easier to see and see which is which compared to the touch buttons on the launch edition. I like the new light bar on the controllers that makes it easy to see from the top of the controller. Also, the slimmer light is lower power and helps with battery life. If you are just getting a PS4 for the first time, I would recommend this over the launch or slim models, as long as the $100 difference isn't a killer to your wallet (that is a few games worth). If you already have a PS4 and are considering the upgrade, obviously do it if you have a 4k. If you have a 1080p, you will still see benefits though not worth breaking the bank over. I found it to be worthwhile. P.S.- I am glad they implemented a better transfer method. Previously it would just transfer save data and you'd have to re-download/install games. Now it can transfer from your old ps4 to the new ps4 over the network, so I was able to keep my P.T. Demo.

    Happy I Upgraded

    So, I purchased the original PS4 on a release date, upgraded to a 2TB hard drive, never had any issues. After all this time, I had purchased a 4K TV. Eventually, the idea of 4K gaming hit me, and I decided to buy the Pro. First off, I enjoy the fact that it comes with a hard drive of 1TB, a decent upgrade from the standard 500GB. Not quite 2TB, but I will likely change that down the road since Sony provides the tools to make this an easy switch (I hate external drives lying around my entertainment center). Secondly, just like the PS4, it was a breeze setting the configurations up to my TV, instantaneously recognizing the 4K capabilities. The crispness of the images was instantly seen. The average load/download of games is roughly the same as the PS4, so no major difference there. The games themselves though, wow! I, like many others, purchased God of War, which looks breathtaking in 4K. Additionally, I purchased Rise of the Tomb Raider and it plays and looks significantly better than when it was released with the Xbox One. I'm definitely looking forward to games in the future with the PS4 Pro. As far as the entertainment aspect goes, I'm definitely content with my decision to save more than $100 (including taxes) than purchasing the Xbox One X. I'm not going to sit here and bash it at all, because it's preference at the end of the day. My decision ultimately came down to the fact that I own nearly 1,000 films in my digital library, including 4K films, and I'm stepping away from physical media. There are many providers out there that are compatible with the PS4, and my films looks great with the PS4 Pro/4K TV combo. As much as I enjoyed my PS4 since launch, I'm sure I'll continue to enjoy the PS4 for the foreseeable future.
