Engadget Review

Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro is a perfect way to show off your 4K TV

The PlayStation 4 Pro is the most powerful home console yet, though you’ll need a 4K/HDR TV to truly take advantage of it. If you already have a PS4 and are stuck with a 1080p, you can wait before upgrade.

Pros
  • Best graphical performance in a console.
  • Your existing games will get upgraded for free.
  • Makes PS VR much smoother.
Cons
  • Not a huge upgrade for existing PS4 owners with 1080p TVs.
  • No 4K Blu-ray drive.
  • You’ll have to wait for games to get patched to take advantage of it.
