What customers say about "Features"
Sony PlayStation 4 Slim
  • Love the slim design + better controller + 1TB drive.
  • Its a great system to have it offers a lot of options to choose from
  • I have yet to play any games on this console but it is an exceptional streaming device although I think the interface is kinda clunky. I can't wait to try games on this.
  • This is a perfect system to use to monitor child play. Also can see what they access during their play.
  • Love the features that comes with it. Enjoy watching movies on it as well
Sony PlayStation 4 Pro 1 TB, Black
  • The controller, with it's tactile feedback and natural feel is awesome. I'm a keyboard guy, but I'm getting used to this now.
  • We used the internet browser feature to watch a SpaceX Falcon 9 launch on the big screen (with surround sound!) as well. I do wish it had come with a remote for the TV watching--exploring my options there at present--but the Dual Shock controller suffices for now.
  • Very happy with the upgrade and the additional features.
  • The system is amazing with all its new features including controller that change light new recording features it's just so amazing and download are incredibly fast.
  • I gave my original PS4 to a less fortunate friend and got the Pro for myself. Love all the added features and I'm excited to see what is on the horizon.
