PS4 Pro Gets A $100 Discount At Walmart

The PS4 Pro is on sale for $100 off.

16 Comments

The PS5 will likely be out before the end of 2020, but we're only a few months away from Final Fantasy VII Remake and The Last of Us Part II--not to mention Ghost of Tsushima this summer--and if you want to play those games at their best, then there's a great deal on the PS4 Pro at Walmart. The PS4 Pro is currently $300, down from its original price of $400. Amazon also has the console for $319, which is still a great discount if you prefer to get your console from them.

The PS4 Pro is the more powerful version of the PS4 Slim. It's capable of playing enhanced versions of the PS4's games, displaying them at higher resolutions with better performance. Of course, developers can take advantage of the extra power in different ways, so the results vary between games. The PS4 Pro is also capable of streaming 4K video from services like Netflix and YouTube.

Even if you buy this PS4 Pro and then upgrade to a PS5 later, all of your games will work on the next-gen console. Sony confirmed last year to Wired that the PS5 will be backward-compatible with the entire PS4 library.

If you're looking for some games with your new PS4 Pro, then there are some great sales going on in the PlayStation Store right now. The Essential Picks sale discounts dozens of some of the PS4's best games, for example.

No thanks. I will stick to my base PS4 and xbox one x. They cover all my needs, until I eventually buy the PS5 and/or the next xbox .

The current consoles are old af and have outdated specs by a decade. The standard ps4 should be $99 at this point and the Pro version $179.99 at most. Current prices are a ripoff.

@hardwenzen: Exactly right. They are running old hardware that tries to cheat you into thinking it's 4K-capable. It's not. Can't blame Sony for trying to get rid of this old inventory.

Save that $300 because your going to need it to buy a PS5 in a few months. Why waste it on a console on the way out? Unless you need something right now just wait:P

If you didn't have any current gen consoles at this point, you'd be better off just getting an Xbox One X.

As the Series X won't have any first party year one exclusives, you'll still get a little mileage until 2021 with the One X and by that point you can buy a PS5 and just play any PS4 games you missed out on via BC.

@mcnichoj: If it’s fully backwards compatible. They have shied away from guaranteeing everything will work..... So who knows.

@tsunami2311: That’s the smart move, I’d rather spend twice as much on a new console than save money on something that’ll be obsolete in a year or two.

Good deal but honestly I just don't see many people picking this up at all at this point with PS5 coming later this year

@jako998: Some of us are done with gaming after this gen save for playing through our massive backlogs and all the retro stuff we might have sitting around. I know I certainly am unless I find a PS5 as cheap as I found a phat PS4 this gen ($200). But even then if it's another gen full of remakes, remaster and reboots then they can follow The Rock's old advice about where to stick it.

@ThrillKillFan: I love remasters and remakes and I hope PS5 will be full of them.

I agree with this as well.
