Last week Sony announced a duo of brand new PlayStation 4 consoles: The PS4 Slim (or simply PS4) which retained many of the same great features as the original model, only in a stylish compact form – and the PS4 Pro which more than doubles the graphics processing of the 2013 model as well as bringing 4K HDR game-play to the console market for the very first time.
