PS4 Pro deals are rare these days, with stock levels taking a dive after the next-generation console launched last month. While you can now buy PS5, stock is looking exceedingly difficult to find. So, if you're after a slightly cheaper alternative and you do spot new inventory, is it worth grabbing a PS4 Pro?
The next generation console retails for $499 (£449), or $399 (£359) if you forego the disk tray - and that puts PS4 Pro bundles in a difficult position.
Still regularly priced at $399 / £399, there's definitely value in picking up a cheap PS4 Pro if you're planning on catching up with Sony's library while the PS5 drops in price over the next couple of years (especially if you're after a physical collection) but if you're after the best PlayStation has to offer, we'd wait for next-gen stock to arrive.
The PS5 Digital Edition does have PS4 Pro deals beat in price - offering a more powerful console still capable of 4K gameplay for a similar cost. However, it's worth noting that you do lose your disk drive to take advantage of this low price.
So, keep this page bookmarked to stay informed of the latest PS4 Pro bundles and whether any are offered at a discount during Black Friday 2021.

PS4 Pro: £399.99 at Base.com
Base.com is offering the PS4 Pro for its usual £399.99 price this week - that's a solid deal considering the price hikes we've seen over the past few weeks. However, the PS5 is due to hit the shelves next month at just £50 more than this, so we'd recommend holding off for now.

What is the PS4 Pro?
Essentially, the PS4 Pro is an upgrade of the PS4, rather than a 'next-gen' console. The keywords to take in from the PS4 Pro are 4K and HDR. The new machine will allow game developers to include 4K options in their games, so expect the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War, Uncharted 4, Spider-Man, Days Gone, Horizon: Zero Dawn and more to look even better on a 4K TV.
HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is the other buzzword to be excited about as the PS4 Pro will allow for extra detail to be seen on a range of games and also a wider range of colors not usually displayed by traditional HD TVs.
Will my old PS4 games work on PS4 Pro?
Absolutely. If you're planning on upgrading to a PS4 Pro from an older PS4, all of your games will still work. Not every title will be patched to take advantage of the new 4K/HDR capabilities, but the default upscaling (if you have a 4K TV) will more than likely see some improvement to the visuals and the improved console power may give the frame-rate a boost on some titles.
What else can I watch in 4K/HDR on PS4 Pro?
The PS4 Pro is compatible with 4K and HDR, and the content options for both are increasing all the time on services like YouTube and Netflix. Amazon Prime Video is yet to be updated for 4K content on a PS4 Pro though, so you'll need to check out the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K deals if you want to enjoy 4K Prime.
Does the PS4 Pro support 4K Blu-rays?
No. This was a surprise if we're honest, especially as both the Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles do. It's a bit of a gamble for Sony, but at the same time, 4K Blu-rays are very expensive for now and many consumers look to digital services to provide their 4K movies and TV content instead.
Do I need a 4K TV to run a PS4 Pro?
No, the PS4 Pro will still work on a regular 1080p TV, you won't get the benefits of upscaling or HDR though. You may see a slim amount of extra detail, or frame-rate boost, but we wouldn't expect a massive leap.
If you are thinking of buying a 4K TV soon, then it's probably a good idea to splash out on the PS4 Pro instead of the regular or new PS4 Slim as it'll future proof you for a while. Be sure to look out for a TV that supports HDR too, in order to take full advantage of the PS4 Pro's capabilities.
Will PlayStation VR be better on the PS4 Pro?
Yes, but only a little. The PlayStation VR frame-rate is better on PS4 Pro and the resolution gets a bit of a bump too. PlayStation VR will certainly work on the older PS4s too, you don't need a PS4 Pro to get involved there.
Does the PS4 Pro have optical audio support?
Yes! The optical audio output has been removed from the PS4 Slim though, which is a massive shame. PS4 Pro owners though will still be able to use optical connections for their soundbars and sound systems.
