PlayStation 4 Pro Review: Is It Worth It?
PlayStation 4 Pro has just been released and even today, consumers are still reluctant to get their hands to the newest upgraded version of Sony's PlayStation 4. Today, we're going to tackle the overview about the PS4 Pro version to answer the question: "Is it worth it?"
PlayStation 4 Pro Specs and Hardware Design
The PlayStation 4 Pro is undoubtedly an upgrade from the previous version, boasting a jump of 4.2 teraflops from the 1.8 teraflops of the original PS4 model as well as an increased in CPU capability which is now clocked at 2.1 GHz up from the standard's 1.4 GHz. When it comes to its storage, Sony opted to double the original default size of the console's storage but take note that it still doesn't support external storage devices - you can, however, always opt for an upgrade.
Aside from the internal specs, the hardware department of the PS4 Pro is very similar from its standard version, having almost identical design except for some small touches which are still worth noting. First, it's a bit slicker than PS4, with now having an overall matte finish compared from the former one; having half glossy and half matte finish design. Also, at the bottom of the device, the traditional cross, circle, square and triangle icons are now used to serve as a rubber feet to prevent the device from slipping.
PlayStation 4 Pro and the PlayStation VR Interaction
It was obvious that Sony intended the PSVR for the PS4 Pro especially with its new HDR and 4K support. But does it really provide a huge difference as for the PSVR experience? The answer is a bit complex than a simple yes or no. The truth is, PS4 Pro does indeed boosts your PSVR experience but as to what degree, well, you may be disappointed if you're expecting it to equate against the PC-powered Oculus Rift or HTC Vive devices. Nonetheless, playing PSVR on the PS4 Pro is indeed crispier and more vibrant compared to the standard PS4.
PlayStation 4 Pro on 4K and HDR Support
One of the amazing features of PS4 Pro is its 4K and HDR support which can be very satisfying and immersive experience when you have a 4K TV. Although you may want to take into consideration the different 4K and HDR support of the current games as some may be running at 4K but for 30 FPS only while some can run 1080p for 60 FPS. You may want to make a research about the games you are planning to play on your 4K TVs.
Finally, we're going to answer the question, "is it worth it?" Well it's a simple case-to-case basis. If you don't have 4K TV and still have a working PS4 then you may want to hold your cash for a bit longer as the PS4 Pro won't be that much of an "upgrade" for you. But if you don't own a PS4 yet then regardless if you have or haven't own a 4K TV, the PS4 Pro is definitely a device worth grabbing for the holidays.
