Maybe hard to justify for some, but I hit when I wanted to renew the warranty period and get a quieter PS4. Then I have a 4K display, so wanted to be prepared for the next game, Horizon Zero dawn and everything from Rockstar.
With that said, I am impressed by games like The Last of Us, World of Tanks and Trackmania Turbo.
Driving 4k gives an extra kick for empathy and now I netflix / youtube with 4k too, as usual PS4 does not.
Very satisfied. Good with a PRO tab in psn menu, so you know the way games are optimized.
Did not sell the old, fun with an extra PS4 in the bedroom, actually. When you log in to PSN on one, then the second log out automatically, so no problem to change the room. With two different PSN accounts can run mp with the family, so overall it feels like a good choice.
The rating is because there is no better console right now, since Sony has added value with VR and much more exclusive titles, so the score remains enough even for a year because of affordability.
Have had the "regular" edition all these years since the PS4 was released but chose to upgrade to the "PRO" edition after acquiring the LG OLED TV "OLED55B6V" and I must admit I'm quite satisfied: D
+ Krafigaste console on the market right now that can offer the following:
* 4k resolution, right now it's mostly about the scaled-4k, which works very well. Provides sharper textures, better anti-aliasing (anti-aliasing), especially in the environments and distant areas.
* 60 fps, providing more frames per second, the image is perceived much smoother and provides higher flow and immersion of the game.
* Better effects, such as shadows, light, details, term.
*** However, up to the game developer if you can Utilise all the horses under the hood.
For the price of around 4000kr, you can not expect the PS4 Pro to cope with all of these at once (my high-end computer in 18k makes it barely), so you get because usually the choice.
+ HDR that provides more realistic colors and greater range in the dark and luster.
+ Faster load times.
+ USB on both sides (no longer need to take the wrong!).
+ - New design of the console. For me it's a lift, others do not.
+ - The price. You get more out of your console, but is really mostly about how graphic you are interested. I gave 2000SEK the trade-in of my PS4 console (at GameStop taking 3999kr Pro), and defintivt think it's worth it - now you know that I get the best experience out of the game I play.
-Not All games are supported. Some (older) games, you will not get any difference at all. UPDATE PS4 has now launched something called Boost mode that will give better performance to the older games, but needed to be patched.
Option at not include 4K Blu-ray player is a big let down. They expect to be streaming 4k movies online, but the supply is very limited right now and you also need to have fast bandwidth.
Can add a small detail, and it is the key to eject the disc. The size and his position is absurd.
So there are improvements to be expected for both 4K and FullHD users.
The technology is also brand new so it needs some time to mature.
But, among other things, tried Uncharted 4 and it is one of the best looking games I've played, (even compared to PC) from the environments to the smallest stubble without noticeable aliasing!
4k makes a difference!
For PSVR there are also improvements to be found. Have tried a few games and is mostly about improved Anti-aliasing and slightly sharper textures.
Finally: Clearly pleased with the upgrade!
+ New handcontrols version 2
+ Regular buttons on ps4 no sensor buttons
+ Better wifi with support for ac
+ A little faster startup of games
+ A little more detailed graphics on the full HD display
+ Better cooling
+ Pen design
+3 usb inputs
4K resolution gives a clarity, sharpness and better antialiasing (antialiasing) that you do not get in 1080p. See Resident Evil 7 or Horizon Zero Dawn (Horizon is the best looking game on console available now) for example (there are comparison video on Youtube), you need to be 4k to see the difference in the test.
For those of you who do not have 4k TV / monitor yet and are thinking of buying, you should know that the PS4 Pro is much quieter than the old PS4 in tests, it has a larger fan and 30% larger heatsink that allows it to keep quieter and cooler. My old PS4 fan sounded really bad and the new Pro is much quieter when I compare (located 50 cm away from it when I play, have it on the desktop).
You also get better fps (frames per second) in the game that Battlelfield 1 mm. (Both online and in single-player), Games flows thus better without 4k TV / monitor and you will not stutter in the image that can be distracting.
+++ NEW! "Boost Mode" (Coming in update 4.5) Elderly PS4 games will flow better without "hacking" (better fps) and also load faster (loading times for some games), even though the games have not been patched by the developer to take advantage of the PS4 Pro's enhancements.
+++ NEW! Connect the external hard drive (Coming in update 4.5)
+ 4k resolution, all the games look sharper and better (such as lighting, shadows, details, everything is far away will be much sharper).
+ Better / better looking graphics in games without 4k, (the game developers themselves choose).
+ Better flow of new games (FPS, frames per second).
+ Much quieter than the old PS4.
+ New Controller (V2) with better battery life, 13 hours or more.
+ Additional USB socket at the back.
+ Gorgeous if you set it upright with Sony originalfot (PS4 Vertical Stand D chassis new PS4 for 245kr), it also takes up less space in an upright position!
Remember that you can also submit your old PS4 (at GameStop) dates to give money in between, I had to give 1800kr on release day for my PS4 Pro, completely ready worth the money!
