As the PS4 Pro launched November 10, its cons began to outweigh the pros and a month later as players are regretting buying the console.

Gamers are realizing that buying the PS4 Pro too soon was unnecessary because televisions not cooperating with the console. This console gained attention with its enhanced GPU, 4K output, and ultra HD media streaming. It claimed to be the most powerful console, yet it can’t handle a 4K HDR video unless one actually owns a 4K HDR set. Also, the Pro has not been able to handle the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray playback.

Players have to wait for their favorite games too as creators have not updated to a 4K HDR video quality, yet. Only a fraction of PS4 games are able to handle its intense quality. PS4 Pro content is making its way to the shelves, but right now, it’s limited. This showed players that they should have waited a while before upgrading.

The Pro, compared to the original console, is also massive which might turn away heads as players are used to the slim aesthetic of a Playstation.

Recently, Xbox has revealed Project Scorpio, which competes with the PS4 pro, and is set to arrive in the near future. Rumors have begun that the Pro is actually less powerful than Project Scorpio. It’s also up against the Xbox One S.

The PS4 Pro is a useful upgrade for someone who owns a 4K TV, but if you don’t, it’s not worth it. Try considering the PS4 Slim which plays all of the same games as the Pro. However, it’s smaller, cheaper, and you don’t have to own a 4K TV. If you’re not a Playstation advocate, try considering the Xbox One S which offers a UHD Blu-ray optical drive, something Playstation doesn’t offer.
