Which PS4 should I buy?
Since launching the original PS4 back in 2013, Sony has introduced a few variations of its popular console into the market. Currently, the two main models are the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro, with the vanilla PS4 still available from select retailers but mostly phased out in favour of the Slim.
As such, the PS4 Slim is the console suitable for most people. Like the name suggests, it's smaller and thinner than the original PS4, plus it adds support for 5GHz Wi-Fi networks – something the launch PS4 did not have. It comes in both 500GB and 1TB variants, though it's worth mentioning that the PS4 now supports external hard drives, so you can purchase a separate USB hard drive if you find yourself running out of space.
The PS4 Pro is geared towards two main audiences: people with 4K TVs and those who simply want the best performance out of their Sony console. With its enhanced hardware, it's able to run games at higher resolutions and take advantage of the sharper clarity of a 4K TV as well as deliver higher framerates and smoother performance than is possible on a regular PS4 or PS4 Slim.
