Should you buy Play Station 4 (PS4)
An article about pros and cons of buying and owning a PS4.


PlayStation 4, a video game console, was released in November 2013 by Sony. It was the successor of Play Station 3 and it had a big improvement in graphics, processor, RAM and storage memory. Overall, PS4 was a big step forward for Sony and it was a great opponent to the Xbox One.

There are 2 versions of PS4 available: normal (500GB) and PS4 Pro (1TB, 4K available).

It's important to mention that I do own a PS4, so I know what I'm talking about.


  • PS4 offers many hours of fun. It's very easy to just turn it on, sit back and start you favorite game.
  • PS4 offers a newly designed controller called "Dual Shock 4". DS4 is really comfortable to play with and the colors on back are mildly interesting.
  • It's (currently) around 100$ cheaper than the Xbox One but offers the same quality as Xbox One.
  • It has many titles, some even specially designed and made for the PS4 (The Last of Us Remastered, DriveClub, The Order: 1886...)
  • It's graphics and processor speed are solid, not the best but deffinately not the worst. It's nice to play HD games on PS4.
  • PS4 has a lot of storage. The minimum storage is 500GB and that's enough for 7 AAA games. You can also connect external storage devices!
  • VR experience is very solid. I can't say it's great but it's really nice to play games with VR headset.


  • PS4 isn't just worth it's price. Currently selling at around 400$, PS4 just doesn't offer enough for it's price.
  • The graphics could be better. As I said, they aren't the worst, but for the price your paying, Sony could step up their game.
  • PS4 doesn't support cross-platform play. This means you can play your multiplayer game(s) only with people that own PS4.
  • It's loud and takes up a lot of space. It's also an expensive dust collector.
  • PlayStationNetwork is often down and it's a hassle to set it up. It's also very vurnable to hacker and DDOS attacks.
  • You need PlayStationPlus to play multiplayer and it's not as cheap as you think.

I don't say I regret buying PS4 in the first place, but If I could go back in time, I really wouldn't buy it. I played it activelly for a month and then stopped since I got bored pretty fast.

However, it's up to you to decide whether to buy PS4 or not. I hope my article will make you make a decision a bit easier!
