Sony PlayStation 4 Consoles
Available in either a 500GB or 1TB storage capacity, the PlayStation 4 delivers an incredible experience for gamers, whether they are playing games or using the console to stream the latest films or listen to their favourite songs. Its HDR visuals and 4K multimedia playback capabilities provide the user with crisp graphics.
With a PlayStation Plus subscription, players are able to create parties and participate in online gaming and communities. Using headsets that can be connected wirelessly or into the DualShock 4 controller, players can chat with friends while playing games. It is also possible to save and directly upload content, such as screenshots and broadcasting gameplay videos live onto the player's social media, making connecting with others even easier than before.
The PlayStation Plus subscription also opens up discounted games, films and TV series' that are on the PlayStation Store, which can be purchased and downloaded directly onto the console.
The DualShock 4 does away with the traditional ‘Start' and ‘Select' buttons, replacing them with ‘Share' and ‘Options', with the former acting as a fast and simple way to take screenshots and record gameplay. There is also an all-new touchpad that also serves as a button, which can be used in multiple different ways both in and out of games. The LED light bar on the back of the controller lights up in several colours to identify different players or even as a reflection of what is happening in-game.
Sony later released two upgraded models of the PS4, the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro. The Slim is a revised version of the original console with the same hardware specifications but in a smaller casing, similar to the slim variations of the PlayStation 3. The PS4 Pro features an upgraded GPU and CPU, which allows the console to support 4K in selected games for an even more detailed and immersive gaming experience. Both the original PS4 and PS4 Pro are available in black, whereas the PS4 Slim comes in either Jet Black or Glacier White.
