At a Glance

Sony's latest console is a powerful, intelligently designed gaming machine without a game to recommend it. It's poised to perform well in the years to come, but it's an underwhelming proposition at launch.

Price when rated: $400.00
Lowest price: $400.00 via Sony Style

Pros

  • New DualShock 4 controller feels great in the hand.
  • Prescient inclusion of excellent system-level sharing functions.
  • Remote Sharing is neat—if you stay close to the console.

Cons

  • Meager, unappealing game library.
  • System interface remains cluttered and unintuitive.
  • Controller has terrible battery life and a seemingly pointless lightbar.
