There are no wrong answers but this is my opinion.
If you like playing games that allow for 1080p, PS4 Pro offers advantages in terms of HDR and 4K content on the Blu-Ray player; however, if you still have a HD TV, there isn’t much difference in performance between the two consoles.
Both provide different features to meet any gamers’ needs. Whether it’s PlayStationVR or virtual reality games on either PS4 or PS4 Pro, these consoles offer rich content and VR support from several third party developers as well as Sony themselves with exclusives such as “Resident Evil”, “Hustle Kings VR” and more!
Personally I like them both because they’re great fun for all types of games.
This is really a question with many variables. It depends on the games you want to play, how far you are from your TV, if you’re playing Blu-ray or streaming movies and more. There’s no definitive answer for this question!
However, Sony recently upgraded the PS4 Pro so it has a CD/DVD player too. So now we do have an answer for this question.
Which is better depends on many factors, but I will list a few to consider.
What are the games like? Most games will work on any PS4, but some games were only designed for the Pro. Sony’s partnership with PC developers has also resulted in many exclusive releases for the Pro. Are you into really high-end graphics? The Pro is likely a better choice, as it can handle 4K and HDR much more easily than the original PS4 still can – not to mention that some titles like Doom require it to get their best performance sprees going at all. What console do your friends have? You may plan to play socially with certain people and dislike inconveniencing them by making them crossplay
It depends on the end-game of your gaming needs, as both consoles are relatively equal in power.
A PS4 Pro is more powerful than a PS4, but not by enough to say you should rush out to buy it if you already have a PS4 and are happy with its performance. If you don’t currently own either console or really want to get into VR, then obviously the deal breaker is which one will let me do what I need it to do. There’s always a trade-off because more powerful hardware tends to be more expensive as well – so if all you’re interested in doing is 1080p gaming (which most games allow) there’s no point in upgrading from what your Xbox One S offers
PS4 Pro, hands down.
PS4 Pro has the following specs that make it an easy choice for any VR user and multimedia buff:
- Higher clock speed
- Higher main memory bandwidth
- More GPU power and higher frequency
- Lower latency in input commands
- Support of latest media formats including 4K 60p playback
An HDR TV or monitor is required to use this console’s features, and one final but important feature is Game Mode which optimizes game performance for stability during gaming. The more your graphics card or GPU can render at a single time without bottlenecking the system, the smoother gameplay will be because there’s more FPS. You will also take the advantage of this machine’s ability to render content very quickly.
A PS4 Pro will be better in terms of fidelity and resolution. However, if you have a 1080p TV and sit within 10 feet of it, then the PS4 is fine. If you have a 4K TV that’s about 26 to 31 inches wide or don’t sit really close to your TV screen (about 10 feet away), then the PS4 Pro is better for you. The only drawback with the PlayStation 4 Pro is that not all games support it yet and if they do they might not look as good as the PlayStation 4 since they’re made for 1080p televisions. But even so, some games do run worse than on the Playstation 4 system due to limitations inherent to this type of console hardware
I would personally recommend the PS4 Pro, as it has better technologies than the original PS4. The PS4 and the PS 4 Pro have 4k video and stereo sound capability, but only the pro can stream Netflix in 4K. Having said that, if you don’t have a 4K TV then it doesn’t really matter which you buy as they both output at 1080p quality. Also, check out what combinations of controllers they offer according to your preference – I liked having a controller with a lighter body weight for my hands – so your choice will largely depend on how you want to play games.
The technology is already far ahead of its predecessor in many ways and it seems likely that Xbox won’t be able to keep up.
PS4 Pro is just a more powerful version than the regular PS4, but with great graphics still compatibility issues exist with certain TVs to prevent you from playing 4K resolution games and movies in your TV; the resolution of the 2nd-generation PS4 is exactly twice that of the original model, giving you 1080p-quality images on whatever screen it’s connected to. It also has good price when it was first released and hasn’t gone up too much since then. The downside being that even though it has some better features and resolutions, there are still some technical issues with its firmware/CPU that need to be addressed before we can fully recommend this console over an older one (or a PC).
The PS4 Pro is better because it offers more features than the PS4. The console has an improved amount of power while in comparison to the original model and also has a faster speed when loading game saves, this leads to less game crashing due to over-heating which was an issue on the original model. And because of its expanded frame buffer, there is less of a chance for graphics stuttering or tearing during gameplay. All these new fixes combine into one system that’s even better overall than what was already out there as far as gaming consoles go!
I’d say choose your PS4 based on personal preference. As both are competitive choices in today’s market
What are your thoughts on PS4 and PS4 Pro consoles? I believe the original PlayStation 4 is already a great system, but the Playstation 4 Pro quietly became an excellent machine for just about anyone. However, if you’re still getting your bearings in the gaming world or aren’t too picky about graphics to start with, then I would say go for the Original PlayStation 4. On top of that it’s cheaper than both systems so you’re saving money in that sense as well! The only downside to this is it doesn’t come with a remote or camera bundled in which might be useful depending how much you use streaming services or take advantage of Sony’s features, but overall I don’t think it makes much of a difference.
