Is The PS4 Pro Worth It?

Posted on May 13, 2017 at 12:09 am

In 2016 Sony launched two new versions of it’s flagship console. The PS4 Pro is a meatier and more powerful version of the standard model that is able to handle 4k performance gaming and High dynamic range processing.

The other new console is the PS4 Slim. It’s functionally the same as the base model, but is sleeker and lighter. It is officially becoming known as the main PS4 as the older models are phased out.

The PS4 Pro has a graphics processor that’s twice as powerful as the one in the base model PS4. It also has an upgraded processor which allows the console to handle physics and artificial intelligence in games more easily.

These features allow the PS4 Pro to make games look a little better graphically, which is a noticeable difference when using a 4k TV. But the PS4 Pro doesn’t have any exclusive games so is realistically only worth it if you want to use it with a 4k TV.

With the Nintendo Switch recently coming back into stock in stores, more and more people are getting there hands on the flagship console. Alongside all these new consoles are the release of various Nintendo Switch peripherals and accessories. Some are good and some completely change the way the console can be used, here are a few of them.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

The pro controller allows transforms the Switch into a true home system. The controller is a dual-stick, wireless controller and gives the player the ability to sit back on a sofa and experience the console the traditional way.

Screen Protectors

The first screen protectors that were available from retailers sold out fast, and for good reason. With the Switch being a handheld system, along with how it’s dock works, the risk of scratches to the screen are high. A screen protector negates this risk and is strongly recommended for all Switch users.

Dota 2 still reigns supreme. With the big changes that have come of it’s latest overhaul ‘7.00’ and the Dark Moon event in full swing, now might just be the time to defend the ancients in Valves cultural internet phenomenon.
