Last September, Sony announced the arrival of their new high-end gaming console, the PS4 Pro.
With only a day before it's official release, have you already decided if you should buy one or not?
Branded by some as possibly the most powerful gaming console to date, the PS4 Pro which was codenamed "Neo" still has its disadvantages.
Here are a few pointers to help you decide if you should get your hands on one as a personal gift:
1. 4K games
This is one unique feature of the PS4 Pro. PS4 games can normally be played with a resolution of 1080p but with this new gaming console, your PS4 games can be upscaled to 4K with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a 4K television set.
2. VR ready
If you're a fan of virtual reality, then you have another reason to go and buy the PS4 Pro. The cutting-edge gaming console has a lot of processing power, which is why VR games would work pretty well with it.
3. Faster frame rate
Due to its 8-core processor, developers will be capable of creating games that could reach up to 60 frames per second (fps). Most games hit up to 30 fps, so 60 fps is definitely a huge upgrade.
1. No UHD Blu-Ray video player
Though the PS4 Pro has 4K game quality, it won't be able to play UHD Blu-ray discs. However, it is capable of 4K media playback for Netflix and YouTube.
2. No increased frame rate for multiplayer games
Sadly, no increased frame rate will be offered for multiplayer games as of the moment. Should you choose to play a game in multiplayer mode, your PS4 Pro's 4K quality and 60 fps game will downgrade to possibly 1080p with 30 fps.
3. Only compatible with 4K TV
If you don't have a 4K TV, then you should think twice about buying yourself a PS4 Pro. This is because your supposedly 4K quality games will be downgraded to 1080p quality if you don't have a 4K TV. You could either choose to buy one or stick with your current television set that doesn't have 4K quality.
