PlayStation 4 - The best playstation made yet, but the worse multimedia systems Sony has ever produced.
As a Games Console, the PS4 is brilliant. Not as Good as a PC, but leagues better than the PS3 and Nintendo Switch. The graphics as amazing and the quality of the exclusive games are top notch.
However this isn't just another Games Console, where the only thing it can do is play video games, but this is a PlayStation, a brand which has been know for it's versatile systems which aren't just meant for Games, but also Music (PS1 had CD playback), Movies (PS2 had dvd playback), all other forms of multimedia support. The PS3 can stream Netflix, or a private media server, you can store movies, music and pictures on the HDD, and it can play Blurays.
But the PS4 isn't the PS3, and when Sony made it, they didn't add in the other feature too. You need a separate USB to play Movies, or music. The only pictures you can view are screen shots you take in game. There's an error message when you want to watch your media server when there's no USB plugged in, and you can't listen to your Audio CD's. As a complete replacement of the PS3 the PS4 is terrible.
So is a PS4 worth getting? Well if you are looking for a true successor the PS3 I'm afraid not, but as a current gen plug and play system, it does a good job, even if a PC can do it better.Read full review
