Is the PS4 Pro worth the upgrade?

Sony has changed the game. The electronics giant just dropped the PlayStation 4 Prowith roughly double the processing power of the original PS4—in the middle of a console life cycle. It offers support for 4K HDTVs and better visuals for VR. While the system "refresh" is unprecedented, many tech writers say the console is a bargain at $400. Critics say the move could fragment the market and is a worthless upgrade for gamers who already own a PS4. What do you think? Vote below! 🎮

The PlayStation 4 Pro is more powerful and has more features than the original PS4, with a compelling price tag. But is it worth the upgrade? Tech reviewers aren't even sure:

I’ve had one in my apartment for about five days now, and so my co-workers are asking: “Should I buy one? Should our readers buy one?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And the answer right now is that I really don’t know yet.

But if you're the kind of person who needs the best, the PlayStation 4 Pro clearly fulfills that need. And if you're not gaming with the best, why even game at all?

For the majority of players, the whys and wherefores are largely redundant. What matters is how the games look and how they run. And the answer is … very well indeed.

The PS4 Pro is only worth it if you have a 4K HDTV, which most people don't have and can't afford. There are barely any channels that even broadcast in 4K. The PS4 is still plenty powerful; if you're replacing it with the Pro without the ability to spend thousands of dollars to upgrade the rest of your home entertainment center—it's a pointless upgrade.

The PlayStation 4 Pro has just one problem, but it’s a doozy: I can’t show you why it exists.

Yeah, but gamers are hyped!

Wrong! Real gamers recognize the "upgrade" for the scam it is!
