Engadget Review

The PlayStation 4 has always focused on doing one thing incredibly well: playing video games. Two and a half years after hitting store shelves, a few unforeseeable issues have cropped up, but the PS4 is still the best console experience money can buy.

Pros
  • Navigating the UI feels fast and intuitive
  • Tons of great exclusive games
  • Compact size makes the console surprisingly portable
Cons
  • Gamepad battery life is still short
  • WiFi speeds can be frustratingly slow
  • System storage interface can be problematic and inaccurate
