See how much slimmer and lighter Sony's new PlayStation 4 is than the original (hands-on)

 

Sony is slimming down the PlayStation 4, following the company's usual modus operandi of releasing an updated and redesigned version of a console part-way through its lifecycle.

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro: $399, November 10, with better graphics, 4K and HDR -- but no 4K Blu-ray

 

The most advanced PlayStation console yet is coming. It's got 4K resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) gaming, but it won't play 4K Blu-ray discs.

Sony PlayStation 4 gaming console review

 

The PlayStation 4 is finally here and the good news is the device delivers across the board for gamers looking to take their enjoyment to the next level.

The PlayStation 4 is going to be a huge hit – we understand if you haven’t pre-ordered the console you’re facing a long wait – possibly until early 2014 – before you can get your hands on one.

Sony PlayStation 4 Australian Review: Gamer's Paradise

 

Sony has been carefully brewing the PlayStation 4 to be a gamer's dream machine. How close did it get to fulfilling your every fantasy, though? Pretty goddamn close, given a bit of time..

Yes, absolutely. It’s a bit of a marketing gimmick, but the PS4 really is for the players.

A Step Backward

 

I'm seriously considering putting an axe through my newly purchased PS4 and going completely back to PC games. Yes the graphics are better, and the controllers are good, but everything that was good about the PS3 has been removed and replaced with the...

So much unrealised potential

 

I want to love the PS4, but Sony are drip feeding us games and system updates. Why no external hard drive integration, why no DLNA. I'd never even expect backwards compatibility, and they sure as heck didn't provide it. The one game I have - The Last...

1080p gaming, feel of the controllers, Netflix app.

Not enough new content, controller battery drain, no media streaming ability, no backwards compatibility, having to have PS Plus account to play online unlike PS3

PS4 is a disappointment, I feel cheated by Sony

 

I purchased my PS4 from JB Hi-Fi in December 2013 for $549. I was expecting a lot from my new Playstation. The PS1 came with CD technology, The PS2 came with DVD technology, the PS3 gave us Blue-ray and a easy to use home entertainment hub. But...

Lacks basic features that come with the PS3,

Playstation 4: Probably not worth forking up so much money now. Wait for the price drop

 

I have had PS3 for many years but was enticed to purchase PS4 on a day of mad impulse shopping. It's obviously way better than PS3 or anything else we have experienced but after using for a good 4 weeks am wondering it is worth spending 500-600 dollars...

Pricey obviously with very limited array of games. Not as good as PS3 as a media/Blu Ray player

Really no CD OR MP3?

 

OMG I paid $550 for a console that can't even play CD, MP3, No external hard drive connectivity, NO 3D MOVIE PLAYBACK? just SHOCKING. This is a tragedy by playstation they should be ashamed of this. Apparently they mentioned a 'patch' update like last...

NO CD NO MP3 NO 3D MOVIES REALLY?
