The Pros And Cons Of The 'PlayStation 4 Pro'
For Sony, the PlayStation 4 Pro is definitely the perfect revolutionary hardware for the PlayStation brand. It may not be a next-generation console like Microsoft's Xbox Project Scorpio, but it's a solid medium hardware that delivers solid 4K gaming, 1080p at 60fps, and smooth VR experiences to any gamer at an affordable price.
PlayStation to compete with 4K gaming market
It's only telling, then, that Sony sees the PS4 Pro as a competitor to the PC - an advantage that Microsoft's Xbox team is edging in on by homogenizing its first-party games. You may think it to be a bit unrealistic for Sony to try and compete with the 4K PC market, but the current cost of a 4K and VR-capable PC with similar specs to the PS4 Pro, is far more expensive than that of Sony's new console, and currently lacks the development clout to make games masses of people want to buy.
Pros and Cons of the PS4 Pro
With that being said, here are some of the Pros and cons of the PlayStation 4 Pro that you might want to ponder on before you decide if you actually want to purchase the console or not.
The PS4 Pro is, from an initial standpoint, a rather clunky and unattractive-looking console. Taking some points from the redesigned PS4 Slim, the Pro looks more like a triple-layered club sandwich despite it being finished with the indication light strip of the PS4 across its front. Though it might look somewhat strange in stock images, it's actually a beautiful machine in the flesh. If the design is your reason for choosing a PS4 model, your priorities aren't really in the right place. It is, however, worth noting that the PS4 Pro is way larger than both the original PS4 and the PS4 Slim.
(+) Virtual Reality
When it comes to VR functionality, the PlayStation 4 Pro is pretty solid. Real VR aficionados may wonder which platform is the best since most always look the same. But when you try the VR feature for the Pro, you'd soon realize that it may not be the best, but it is still pretty impressive nonetheless.
(+) 4K content
One of the most common questions from people who are interested in purchasing the PS4 Pro is if it's worth grabbing if you do decide to upgrade to a 4K television. The Answer? Yes! Most definitely. The PS4 Pro may not boast an impressive native 4K resolution, but it is still pretty solid in terms of delivering a vivid graphical representation of any game that has incorporated 4K. At a reasonable price, how can someone ignore what the PlayStation 4 Pro is offering?
As for games, every game going forward will support PlayStation Pro and its 4K output. Currently, a list of 45 previously released PS4 titles has worked with the PlayStation 4 Pro. Interestingly, the PS4 Pro doesn't actually place all of its games at 4K resolution, instead, it uses a smart "Checkerboarding" technique to intelligently upscale content to 4K. The results are impressively stunning. You wouldn't notice the difference between Sony's system and true 4K.
