Always been intrigued by 4K gaming but dismayed by the price? Amazon has discounted the PS4 Pro for Prime Day, coming in at just £299.99.
4K gaming still has a long way to go price-wise before it becomes adopted as the norm, but £299.99 is an amazing price given that the console usually goes for nearly £350.
Of course, the PS4 Pro doesn’t start and end with 4K gaming, the console is also compatible with HDR-ready TVs. High-dynamic-range imaging (HDR) boosts the number of colours available considerably, allowing for greater contrast and an incredible viewing experience.
In our PS4 Pro review, Stuart Andrews explained: “HDR provides better contrast, and a wider range of tones and colours. This improves the depth of the presentation, giving fantastically bright and vibrant highlights. As you’ll know if you’ve seen HDR video, it’s a more realistic picture with greater visual impact. 4K is a simple 2 x boost in resolution from 1080p to 2160p, giving PS4 Pro games incredible sharpness and clarity, with more detailed textures in some cases.”
The PS4 Pro also comes with a 1TB hard drive as standard which we think is a smart choice given that the 500GB capacity which tends to be the industry standard is too small for accommodating more than a few triple-A games.
Be aware however that while the PS4 Pro is a great console in its own right, it doesn’t quite reach the heights of the Xbox One X, which handles 4K gaming at a much smoother rate.
The only thing holding back the Xbox One X is its price, which rarely drops below £400. If you don’t fancy forking out a fair amount of money, this PS4 Pro deal is a great entry-point into 4K gaming.
It’s also worth pointing out that Amazon is currently selling a 15-month PS Plus membership for just £34.99 (£19.99 if you have a student account). A PS Plus account is required to play games online but it also comes with a range of free games each month – making the current deal great value for money.
