The PlayStation 4 will look pretty different than any former consoles released by Sony as the PS4 is coming to retail in two models. PlayStation gamers who are well-versed in console specs can tell the difference between one version and another. However, for the average Joes, it may be hard to tell the difference between the console models.
PlayStation 4 has 2 models; they are PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 Slim. If you want to know the comparison for each spec, below we will give you a detailed version of each version of the PlayStation 4 from the dimensions, weight, and other elements.
How Much Does the PS4 Weigh?
If you are the type of person who often picks up your consoles frequently to move between rooms or carry them to your friend’s house, you will give your arms the best exercise when lifting the PlayStation 4 Pro. The reason is that the console weighs more than 7 pounds (3.3 kg). Thus it is heavier than the other versions.
The PlayStation 4 slim is, well… slimmer and lighter, hence the name. It weighs 2.1 kg, which is approximately more than 4.5 pounds, and it is a nice choice for those who want to move the console anywhere.
The original version of PlayStation 4 is the middle variant between the two types. It is far bulkier than its slim counterpart. The weight is 6 pounds (2.8kg), and it is not too light as the PS4 Pro. The current PS4 gamers can adapt to the weight of the Pro with no problem. Carrying the slim version is like carrying a bag full of feathers, so to speak.
How big is PlayStation 4 console?
The original version of the PS4 has the following dimension: It has 11 inches wide by 2 inches tall by 12 inches long. The disparity between this version and the slim one is over an inch. The new version of the PS4 has a size of 10 inches x 1.5 inches x 11 inches.
Meanwhile, the PlayStation 4 Pro is almost a foot (12 inches) wide by 2 inches tall and nearly 13 inches long. This is a significant shift from the slim version in particular.
For those concerned about whether the PS4 can fit in their setups, it is worthy to note that the PS4 Pro is quite big. It is almost a foot wide and above a foot long. It is two inches more than the PS4 slim.
Those who have not so big space in their setups should understand that the slim version is the smallest version of other types. Thus the slim version might be a good choice.
In conclusion, if you expect to move your console frequently, the PlayStation Slim is your best bet. It is a standard option, and it can play every game made for PS4 and streams Netflix with 1080p resolution.
However, if you want to experience the sharpest quality of graphics, the best gameplay frame rate, video streaming with 4K quality, and give your arms the benefits of a workout, then PlayStation 4 is your choice.
