Sony PlayStation 4 (Slim)

 

Sony PS4 Slim review – The new standard PlayStation 4 console, casually known as the PS4 Slim, is the best version of its ilk. But with the more powerful PS4 Pro available in stores offering 4K and HDR gaming and Xbox Scorpio out this year, is it worth...

Incredibly quiet ; Much more energy efficient ; Looks lovely ; Easier to expand HDD space

Controller analogue sticks still not durable enough ; The PS4 Pro makes this a tough sell to dedicated fans

It’s tempting to see the PS4 as a ‘jam tomorrow’ console, with the Xbox One delivering jam today. However, there’s more than enough third-party jam to make you glad you bought one now, while tomorrow’s jam does look very, very tasty indeed.

Is the PS4 the console to buy this Christmas?

Sleek, powerful hardware ; Intuitive and functional interface ; Great streaming and sharing features ; Excellent controller ; Key games look better on PS4 than Xbox One

Lack of great exclusives ; No instant resume on games ; No DLNA client for media streaming

After a year, the PS4 still has the sleekest, most powerful hardware, the most intuitive interface and an improved line-up of apps and games. It has streaming capabilities that Microsoft can’t match, with more to come. What it doesn’t have is a killer...

Sony PS4 Slim review: quieter, cooler, thinner

 

Quieter, cooler and thinner, the new PlayStation 4 Slim plays it safe with surprisingly satisfying results

Great gaming platform ; Good value for money ; Controller could be best ever ; Same amazing gaming library

Optical audio port removed ; Still not sure on aesthetics

Sony PlayStation 4

 

Next-gen gaming is a glorious reality but you'll have to make do without some last-gen features

Simple set-up and interface ; Games look and sound great ; Good selection of TV, film and music apps ; Decent AV performance

No 3D Blu-ray, CD or DLNA support ; Not as good as a dedicated disc player

Sony has been clever with the PS4. Gaming is the theatre in which it wants to win the next-gen console battle, and on this evidence we think it might just have the first victory in the bag.

Sony PlayStation 4 Slim review

 

Smaller, lighter, quieter, cheaper

Always significantly quieter than the original and often silent ; Usefully smaller and arguably better looking ; Tiny, handy tweaks to the controller

No optical output or 4K Blu-ray drive

Better than the original PS4 in almost every way, the Slim is an awesome console if you're not a Pro-style gamer

Original (2013) PS4 review

 

The 'fat' PlayStation 4

Snappy performance ; Killer components ; Much-improved controller ; PlayStation Plus ; PlayStation Now ; PlayStation Music

Remote Play's trivial ; PSN's less stable than Xbox Live ; Not enough apps

When it was released, the PS4 was the most powerful games console in the world with plenty of AAA games available and features added - and it still holds up.

Sony PS4 (Slim) review

 

The PlayStation 4 sheds some weight – and a few notes off its price tag

Great games ; Good value ; Improved power efficiency ; PS Plus still a great deal ; DualShock 4 better than ever

Optical audio removed ; No 4K Blu-ray player

An excellent all-round console with a fantastic catalogue of AAA games, the slimmed down PS4 is better in almost every way compared to the original – barring one notable exception.

PlayStation 4 Camera review

 

An extra purchase with no purpose

Works as advertised ; The Playroom is amusing ; Voice commands work well ; Compact and attractive

Few games use it ; No gesture controls ; Minimal voice commands ; Face recognition more trouble than it's worth

The bottom line is that right now it's just not worth it to buy a PlayStation Camera. Go ahead and give the new PS Camera a try if you're a hardcore PlayStation fan who want to see more developers utilize it down the road, or if you simply need to have...
