What to consider when buying a PS4
As with any big purchase, there are a number of things to consider when buying a PlayStation 4:
PlayStation Plus will be required if you want to play games online, and Sony has adopted a subscription model like Xbox. To play games online with PlayStation Plus, you’ll have to pay a $59.99 annual subscription fee.
The membership isn’t be required for all internet use though. You will still be able to watch streaming services and browse the web without PS Plus.
Hard drive space
Although there has been a large upgrade in hard drive space from the PS3 to the PS4, there has also been a large increase in the space required to run next-gen games. An average next-generation game will take around 40gb of space, so don’t be surprised when your hard drive runs out of storage.
You can usually buy a PS4 in a bundle package, where you can get the console and a game or two for cheaper than they would be separately. Black Friday should be no different, and many providers will offer discounts on various PS4 bundles. Bundle packages are the ideal way to start gaming as soon as you open the box.
The PS4 is the only console to offer VR capabilities, so if you are looking to step in to the virtual world with your new console, a PS4 is the way to go. The PlayStation VR headset costs roughly $100 more than the console itself. A PlayStation camera is also required to play VR games.
