With only three years since the release of the PlayStation 4, Sony isn't quite ready to give us a completely new console. But while it did unveil a new slim redesign, there's also the PlayStation 4 Pro: Not quite full 4K gaming, but the new HDR option looks good enough to give players a taste of the next generation. We've pitted the stats of the new systems up against the OG PS4 to see how far we've come in the past few years.
