This year has been interesting from a console player’s perspective. Looking at Sony’s console specifically, the PlayStation experience has been continuously altered and improved over the course of these past 11 months with new models and new technology making its way to consumers worldwide.

In this article, we’ll review the major releases from Sony that impacted the gaming industry in 2016 and have brought more diversity to the PS family overall. Let’s take a look at what Sony has offered its customers and what curious newcomers can expect if they decide to buy a PlayStation of their own.

PS4 Slim

The PlayStation 4 is a very powerful gaming console, capable of handling the most demanding gaming environments without a sweat.

However, with great power comes great size? Many PS4 owners have complained about the console’s physical size and showed interest in something a little lighter and less space consuming. That’s when the PS4 Slim came into the picture. The console doesn’t feature any hardware changes from the original, but comes in a smaller package that is easier to both store and set up without hogging all the room.

With less space consumed and also less noise produced, the Slim model is a great alternative for PS4 lovers that just don’t have as much space available.

PS4 Pro

The PlayStation 4 Pro is the improved and far more elitists’ successor of the original PS4. The device features extensive hardware modifications, providing twice as much GPU resources and new AMD processing technology. With 1 TB at their disposal, PS4 Pro users are ready for pretty much anything the gaming industry throws at them. The console was built around the rising popularity of 4K technology, and became the first console to support it.

Although having a 4K capable console might be great in some cases, for some people, most consumers don’t own the necessary displays to enjoy 4K. Not to mention that most games coming out right now don’t even support 4K, so the PS4 Pro feature is very hard to emphasize.
