As a gam­ing plat­form, PlayS­ta­tion 4 is the best around – which makes the PS4 Pro the best of the best. Games op­ti­mised for the new con­sole look stun­ning on a 4K HDR TV, and are sub­stan­tially im­proved by the extra grunt in­side this slightly big­ger ma­chine. If you’ve al­ready splashed out for a 4K HDR screen and you en­joy video games at all, it’s well worth the up­grade. The miss­ing 4K Blu-ray drive means it isn’t a per­fect en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem, but stream­ing con­verts won’t care.

Stuff says ★★★★★ The sys­tem for con­sole gamers who have a 4K TV and want the best gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ence pos­si­ble Xbox One S from US$400 / xbox.com

Mi­crosoft dumps Kinect, the $400+ ask­ing price and the fugly power brick to cre­ate a supremely en­tic­ing con­sole that also has a 4K Blu-ray player. It re­mains a se­ri­ous al­ter­na­tive to the PS4 Pro. Stuff says ★★★★★ A fine con­sole with some big ex­clu­sive ti­tles This is the old PS4 squeezed into a 20% smaller pack­age, and it still de­liv­ers an awe­some con­sole gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. But if you see a 4K TV in your fu­ture, you’re bet­ter off sav­ing for the PS4 Pro. Stuff says ★★★★★ Bet­ter than the old PS4 in al­most ev­ery way
