We’re going to be taking a look at the differences between the PS4, PS4 Slim, and PS4 Pro so that you can make an informed decision on which you should buy. While the changes to each system may not be much, there are still some and hopefully this information presented clearly to you will help you out!
The standard PS4 is the model that Sony launched back in 2013 and took over the gaming industry with. Coming a year after the Wii U and just a few days before the Xbox One, the console grabbed the lead and never looked back. It was the most powerful at the time it launched, capable of delivering 1080p images much more frequently than its competition and even delivering on more solid framerates.
It’s fully compatible with the PSVR headset as well as all other peripherals released. It’s not overly large, and its sleek design features a parallelogram profile, while the top is a large rectangle that is split between a matte side and a glossy side (the HDD sits beneath the glossy side and the plate is interchangeable).
