Should I Buy Ps4 Pro

That said, Sony is working on a PS5 VR headset with an updated controller similar to the Oculus Touch, and it should connect using only one cable. Everything about it will be much better than the old PSVR, featuring an improved display and more advanced tracking.

should i buy ps4 pro

The overall design of your PS4 console probably shouldn't be a final purchase decision, but it's certainly something to consider. When Sony thinks a game will be hugely popular when it comes out, you can usually find a Limited Edition version of the console right behind it. There are also some cool classic designs such as a PS4 themed like the original PlayStation or a bright blue version with the iconic button layout across the side.

There are, however, quite a few differences from the two models. The distinction is enough to confuse consumers who end up asking themselves, which one should I buy? The PS4 Pro was a more recent release and offers some new additional features such as 4K display rendering, an extra set of hardware which gives it a slightly bulkier look.

Ultimately, there are reasons to buy both these consoles. There are factors that I didn't touch on in the above six reasons that should guide your purchasing decision. These include the games you want to play.

Each system has its own exclusives, from Uncharted and God of War on PlayStation, to Halo and Gears of War on Xbox. You should absolutely consider which console has the exclusive content you prefer before buying.

And there are reasons to buy a PS4 Pro over an Xbox One S which I'll touch on later. For now, hopefully these reasons help you at least think more carefully about which console you should buy going into the holidays this year.

Whatever drive you choose, the upgrade process is fairly simple and requires minimal technical knowledge. Depending on your internet speed, the file download and drive switch combined shouldn't take you more than 15-20 minutes.

The standard PS4 hard drive is a 500GB 5400 RPM SATA II hard dri, whereas the PS4 Pro includes a 1TB drive. You can replace either hard drive with any hard drive that complies with these standards, is no thicker than 9.5mm, and is larger than 160GB[1]. Given that HDD prices have come down significantly, you should definitely consider a drive that gives you plenty of space, such as a 2TB version. Replacing your hard drive with a compatible device does not void your PS4's warranty. You can also upgrade to a faster 7200 RPM SATA II hard drive. Note that SATA II is sometimes called SATA/300 or SATA 3.0 GBps. A newer SATA III (SATA/600 or faster) drive will work fine in the PS4, but you won't get the speed benefit as it'll operate at SATA II speeds. For more details on compatible hard drives, see: PS4 Third-Party Hard Drive Solutions. Some popular hard drives compatible with PlayStation 4 are:

Note that your account settings are stored in your PSN account, so once the new hard drive is in place, you can re-add your account to the PS4 and log in. Once you're logged in, you can redownload any of the games and DLC you purchased from the PlayStation Store. Disc-based games will have to be reinstalled by inserting them one by one. You should back up your game saves to a USB device or to the cloud (available to PS Plus users). The steps to do that are described below.

Click the link (circled in red in our image). There are multiple system software files on Sony's system software page -- update versions and full installs. Make sure you find the latest version (the page will display the latest version number up top -- but the file download listed at the top is usually the update, not the full install you'll need for a hard drive replacement). Look for the full install listed under "Perform a New Installation of the System Software," as the smaller update file won't work for a fresh install. The file should be closer to 1 GB in size (some previous versions were around 700-800 MB, whereas update files are around 300 MB).

3. Plug your USB drive into your computer. You can use a PC or a Mac, but you have to make sure the USB flash drive is formatted as FAT or FAT32 to avoid issues. Most flash drives come preformatted and should be ready to go, but if you want to be sure note that erasing and formatting your drive only takes a few seconds and the system may return an error with other formats. On a PC, right-click the drive and select Format from the menu. On Mac, use Disk Utility and erase and reformat using MS DOS (FAT) and Master Boot Record scheme.

That being said, once the new consoles hit the shelves, look for some significant price drops for both of these. And with the winter sales right around the corner, there should be some great bundles and stellar savings to be had if you want to get your hands on one of the last generation of gaming machines.

Overall, the Xbox One X has the edge in terms of visuals. As for frame rate Resident Evil 2 holds up well on both consoles. Considering the level of optimisation Capcom has achieved with Resident Evil 2 on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, it will be interesting to see how the PC version fares. As it stands though, if you have an Xbox One X, that's where you should be playing Resident Evil 2.

The PS5 is now here, and so is Black Friday! This combination should see some retailers looking to get rid of their remaining PS4 stock at some very enticing prices. Take a look at our full comparison above to help you find a great offer on the PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro today!

Are you considering replacing PS4 hard drive with an SSD? If so, you should read this post, in which MiniTool explains whether it is worth upgrading to PS4 SSD and recommends 4 suitable SSDs to you. In addition, it also shows you how to replace PS4 hard drive without data loss and how to dispose the old PS4 hard drive.

Step 5: Install the PS4 system software on the new internal hard drive. To do that, you should download the system software to a USB drive, and then enter PS4 Safe Mode to initialize PS4 SSD. After that, plug the USB drive and update PS4 system.

Step 6: Restore data from the drive that contains the backed up data. To do that, you should connect the backup drive to the PS4 and navigate to Back Up and Restore again to choose Restore PS4 option. Then, select the backup file to restore.

If you are a Halo or Gears of War fan, you can choose Xbox One X. But if you desire a much more diverse lineup of exclusives, you should choose PS4 Pro. As a PS4 owner, you can play the following excellent games:

If you're looking for a console that can play games and stream movies in 4K, as well as play 4K UHD Blu-ray discs, you should check out the newer PlayStation 5. As long as the rest of your setup is 4K-compatible (which we'll discuss below), the PlayStation 5 runs 4K natively, without needing any upgrade.

5. Make sure that "Automatic" is selected. If your display or cable isn't fully 4K compatible, you'll see that the 2160p options (this is 4K video) will be marked as "unsupported." On a PS4 Pro, this feature will be enabled, and you should select it.

The two consoles share the same PS4 game library, but the Pro features an entirely matte chassis design compared to the original PS4's glossy top and is the only way to enjoy 4K visuals on PlayStation. Read our PS4 vs PS4 Pro guide if you have the original PS4 and you're considering upgrading to the PS4 Pro.","@type":"Question","name":"Do I need a 4K TV to use a PS4 Pro?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"Nope, it works with any HDTV. But, if you do have a 4K TV, then some games will display in 4K and, if your TV supports it, HDR. If you don't have a 4K TV, you'll still benefit from buying a PS4 Pro as the framerates will be higher and you'll notice a higher level of detail and enjoy smoother gameplay.","@type":"Question","name":"Can PS4 Pro play 4k Blu Ray?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"Nope, PS4 Pro is limited to regular HD Blu Rays and cannot play UHD 4K Blu Rays.","@type":"Question","name":"Should I buy a PS4 Pro or a PS5?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"The PS5 is definitely the way to go if you want the best in power and performance, it is also backward compatible with a majority of PS4 games so you won't be missing out on that regard. However, the PS4 Pro is significantly cheaper and still a fantastic console; but it's most likely you will have to go down the refurbished\/pre-owned route in order to pick one up as they're rather difficult to find new. Most of Sony's huge first-party exclusives such as God of War: Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West still released with PS4 versions and we'd expect this to continue for a while due to the sheer number of PS4 owners. So which one you should buy comes down to your budget and how much you value the improved performance and loading speeds that come with the new PS5 console.","@type":"Question","name":"Are all PS4 games compatible with PS4 Pro?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"If you've been a PlayStation 4 gamer for a while, and already amassed a huge game collection, fear not - the PS4 Pro will still be able to play all of them. You'll even be tempted to dig out some of your old faves, as some games will have improved performance. Happy days!","@type":"Question","name":"How much does the PS4 Pro cost?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"It originally launched for slightly higher, but these days you can generally find a PlayStation 4 Pro for around 259.99 refurbished (PS4 refurbished deals can be compared here). The console is hard to find now new due to the fact PlayStation have stopped production following the release of the PS5 console.","@type":"Question","name":"Will there any games exclusive to PS4 Pro?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"Even though the PS4 Pro offers greater performance, there's no exclusive PS4 Pro only games planned by Sony. Its policy is quite clear in that all PS4 games sold will be playable on any PS4 model you own.","@type":"Question","name":"When did the PS4 Slim release?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"September 15th 2016","@type":"Question","name":"Is the difference in gameplay quality noticeable compared to the PS4 Pro?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"The major difference between the slim PS4 and PS4 Pro is the former's inability to play games at 4K resolution. Thankfully this is the kind of flourish only really made noticeable when comparing the same game side by side, and those with a HDTV and a PS4 Slim will still see some improvements in HDR. Both the Pro and the Slim sport the same neat stacked design.","@type":"Question","name":"Should I upgrade to the PS4 Slim?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"Compared with the original PS4, the only drastic feature missing from the PS4 Slim spec is an audio out jack, which most won't find themselves needing. The main reason you'd likely consider an upgrade to the Slim is if you care about the size of the actual console. The PS4 Slim is about 1\/3 smaller than he PS4 Fat. The other benefits include a more rounded case design and a new version of the DualShock 4 controller. Other than that, the specs are the same.","@type":"Question","name":"How much does a PS4 Slim cost?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"As the slightly less powerful PS4 hardware iteration, the PS4 Slim has always remained priced at around roughly 100 less.
