The PlayStation 4 (PS4) has been a differentiator in the games console market since its release in 2013, where it has done battle with the Xbox One. Fans were recently treated to news that a White PS4 Pro will be released on November 7th, alongside what has been remarked as the world’s most powerful console, the Xbox One X.

It is unlikely to be a coincidence the two consoles are set to drop on the same date, especially considering Sony and Microsoft have been dueling for some time. Before we get into details surrounding the White PS4 Pro, let’s firstly take a look at the XBox One X, especially since there has been much speculation surrounding the technology.

Arguably the next generation of gaming, the XBox One X promotes a true 4K experience, which is bright, loud, vivid, and generally spectacular. Microsoft have been required to up their game after being on the losing end of the console war, and they have successfully done so with their new model. It is smaller, sleeker, faster, and even more capable than the PS4, a first for Microsoft as they seek to gain a competitive edge before the PS5 is released.

To retain their relevance in the games console conversation, and to provide a stopgap before the PS5 drops, Sony have introduced the White PS4 Pro 1TB. The console has received a release date from various online retailers, who are explicitly promoting the ‘white’ aspect of the console, which promotes exclusivity and freshness.

If you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to buy the PS4, now is the perfect time to do so. You can purchase a supercharged version of the console for around $450, which considering its capabilities is certainly worth it for all your gaming and multimedia needs. The glacier White PS4 Pro is being sold in various forms, having initially been restricted to the Destiny 2 bundle only.

The glacier White PS4 Pro marries supreme functionality with an incredibly sleek look, and the clean, compact nature of the console is space-efficient and attractive, while functioning to serve all your gaming requirements. The success of the PS4 has elevated beyond the XBox One in recent years, where not only is it superior performance wise, but the Playstation has earned exclusive title releases including The Last of Us, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and The Last Guardian.

This has helped the Playstation 4 cement its position as the world’s favorite console, consolidated by the collection of multi-platinum titles which have helped confirm the PS4’s legendary status. You could argue Sony have been at the top since entering the industry, developing some of the most innovative games known to mankind. It is the reputation Sony has earned that creates significant intrigue surrounding the new White PS4 Pro, which will be an interesting prelude to the PS5.

Originally, the White PS4 Pro was launched to coincide with the release of Bungie’s shooter Destiny 2, but the standalone White PS4 Pro has now hit the market on its own. It is currently retailing at Smyths, but whether it will receive a more widespread release globally remains to be seen. With an expected arrival of November 7th, fans are in for a treat, especially considering the positive reaction received so far.

The PS4 Pro has received four and five star reviews across the board, being praised for stunning 4K graphics, fast loading times, and a quiet running noise. Though it has some niggles, the performance offered exceeds what you would expect from a high-end gaming PC, so if you’re yet to purchase a console for this generation, the White PS4 Pro is a no-brainer.
