The PS4 Pro, released in late 2016, is an upgrade to the earlier model of the PS4. While it is most definitely not the much-awaited PS5, there were some hardware upgrades among others. There are no PS4 Pro exclusive games and games released for the PS4 are compatible on both models. The PS4 has undergone three different hardware revisions, with PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro being the two latest.

There are, however, quite a few differences from the two models. The distinction is enough to confuse consumers who end up asking themselves, which one should I buy? The PS4 Pro was a more recent release and offers some new additional features such as 4K display rendering, an extra set of hardware which gives it a slightly bulkier look.

They have also changed up the ports and tweaked the experience in PlayStation VR (albeit, not too much of a difference). The extra features that the PS4 Pro offers also mean that the price is also a little extra, but it could be worth it depending on your setup.
