By now, most people know about the PS4 Pro’s graphical capabilities, but the PS5 Pro’s hardware architecture will probably remain one of the more hotly contested topics for years to come.
There are a few important questions that still need to be answered, though, like whether or not PS5s hardware is truly superior to Xboxes, and how well PS5’s performance compares to Xbox’s.
In the meantime, we’re here to answer a few of these questions, to see if Sony has a superior product or if it’s just a fluke.
Why is it worth it?
The PS5 is more powerful than Xbox, but not quite as powerful as Microsoft’s.
The PS3’s predecessor, the Xbox One S, was a huge leap forward in terms of hardware quality, graphics, and features.
That said, Sony’s PS5, while not as powerful, is far more powerful.
The console has 4GB of RAM, which is a lot for a gaming console, but less than the 8GB Xbox One X’s 4GB.
PS5 also has more GPU cores than the Xbox.
And yes, PS5 can run more games, which means you can get some pretty great games.
What are the pros and cons?
The pros: PS5 does everything that PS4 did well, including some of the most popular games of the last decade.
PS4 was the best-looking gaming console of all time, and its console ports are always going to look amazing.
The Pro is the best gaming console in the world.
The cons: The Pro’s biggest weakness is battery life.
It only has a 4,200mAh battery, which isn’t a lot of power for a console with a 5.1-inch display.
There’s also the PSX port, which PS5 needs to run at a minimum of 720p or 1080p at 60 frames per second to actually play.
But that’s just the cost of the battery.
It also doesn’t have a Blu-ray drive, and there’s no USB-C to replace the PS3 one.
PS3s included built-in Lightning port for charging, but that’s still not included in PS5.
The only way to charge your PS5 would be to plug it into your PC or laptop, which won’t work on PS5 since the Pro has no optical drive.
You can also charge your phone using the same USB-cable that PS3 used, which doesn’t really make much sense.
What to do with it?
While you’ll still need a PS4 to play most PS5 games, the PSPro offers a ton of options for playing PS5 classics.
The games you’ll want to play with the Pro include BioShock Infinite, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and The Last of Us Remastered.
PSPlus is another big advantage that PS5 has over Xbox, and it’s worth getting.
PS Plus lets you buy new PS5 content on top of the games you already own.
For instance, if you buy a PS5 game, you can then buy a new PS4 game.
That way, you don’t have to wait for the next generation to get the content you need.
There aren’t any major new releases on PSPlus, but there’s plenty of content that will appeal to older players who want to keep up with the latest games.
The pros: The PS4 is a huge step up from the PS2, and a solid upgrade over the PS1.
You’ll still be able to play older PS5 releases on the PSN, but you’ll be able access more content that you’ve already bought.
The PlayStation 4 Pro is also a great console for those who want a smaller console that you can play on a TV with your PS4.
There is no Blu-Ray Drive, but PS4 games that use it have better visuals.
The Cons: The DualShock 4 isn’t as good as the Xbox, PS3, or PSX ports, but it’s still a fantastic controller.
PS2 controllers didn’t have any analog sticks, and they weren’t as comfortable to use.
If you’re looking for a great gaming console for your PS3 or PS4, the Pro will be a great choice.
The lack of Blu-rays doesn’t help either.
