Positives


Excellent performance, great DualShock 4 controller, great user interface, easy setup.

Negatives


Lack of good PS4 exclusives at the moment, lacks DLNA media streaming support, no CD / mp3 playback.


Bottom Line

The Sony PS4 is quite possibly the best games console out there at the moment. The in-built games show off its performance and reveal it has the capacity to run the most demanding games and graphics that we’ll see in 2014 and beyond. The DualShock 4 wireless controllers are a real innovation even though the touchpad and improved motion tracking have yet to be utilized.

If you own a PS3, then you may want to wait and see how the console evolves in 2014 when developers really start to push the tech inside the PS4. But if you do decide to pay for the upgrade, you won’t be disappointed. It’s miles better and you won’t regret it.
