Three things to consider before buying a PS4 Pro
1. Don’t wait until Black Friday
Black Friday might seem like the sensible time to pick up a PS4 Pro, but the truth is that retailers offer their own independent sales throughout the year. In some cases, bundles including the console have been known to be sold lower earlier in the year than they ever do around Christmas time. It all comes down to taking the PS4 Pro plunge at a price point that’s best for you.
2. A PS4 Pro is best when paired with a 4K-ready TV
In order to get the most out of a PS4 Pro you’ll need a television that is 4K-ready. Without one you’ll still be able to enjoy reduced load times, smoother framerates and improved HDR lighting, but it’ll all remain at a resolution of 1080p. That’s still HD, but nothing as drastic as the 2160p resolution PS4 Pro enables game resolution to output natively.
3. You only get one Dualshock 4 controller
All three of the available PS4 console models only come packaged with one Dualshock 4 PS4 controller. This is everything you need to get started in a singleplayer game, but anyone wanting to enjoy split-screen co-op games should consider an additional controller – the standard price being £49.99.
