PS4 Pro vs Xbox One S: Which console should you get?

PS4 Pro vs Xbox One S: We take a look at Sony and Microsoft’s current flagship consoles and see how the specs, features, games and more compare to see which machine is right for you.

As well as comparing the two consoles, we’ll also answer plenty of common questions thrown around:

Which console is more powerful?
Will my existing games work on the console?
Can I use 4K Blu-rays?
Do I need a 4K HDR TV?
What about Xbox One X?

PS4 Pro vs Xbox One S: Console Performance

The difference in performance between PS4 Pro and Xbox One S is pretty major, with the former having significantly higher specs while the latter represents a relatively modest upgrade over its predecessor.

Xbox One S is essentially the same machine as the 2013 launch model in terms of internal specs. There are minor differences when it comes to performance, although you’re unlikely to notice any discernible changes. PS4 Pro has received minor CPU improvements that have allowed for better performance in some kinds. Project Cars, for example, sees a 38 percent increase in performance with the PS4 Pro Boost Mode enabled. Unfortunately, visual quality remains unchanged.

We’ve compiled all of the specs below:
PS4 Pro Xbox One S
CPU 2.1GHz 8-Core AMD Jaguar 1.75 GHz 8-Core AMD Custom CPU
GPU 4.2 TFLOP AMD Radeon Integrated AMD Graphics clocked at 914MHz
Memory 8GB GDDR5 + 1GB 8GB DDR3
HDR Yes Yes
4K Yes Streaming content only, gaming upscaled
Storage 1TB Hard Drive 500GB/1TB/2TB
USB 3 x USB 3.1 3 x USB 3.0
Wi-FI 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi (2.4GHz & 5.0GHz) Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi A/B/G/N/AC 2.4GHz and 5GHz
Bluetooth Bluetooth 4.0 Bluetooth 4.0

However, the Xbox One S is still the best Xbox One on the market. That is, until the Xbox One X launches in just a few weeks.

The PS4 Pro is a different beast when compared to the Xbox One S. Its internal components are a big improvement over the original model, as you can see in the above spec list. The newly implemented Boost Mode also allows players to gain extra benefits such as higher framerates across significantly more games, even those lacking a PS4 Pro-specific patch.

PS4 Pro vs Xbox One S – Dimensions

The PS4 Pro is quite a bit wider than the Xbox One S, measuring in at 295 x 327 x 55mm where the One S is 229 x 292 x 63.5mm. It’s also longer, but ever so slightly thinner.
PS4 Pro vs Xbox One S – Resolution and HDR gaming

Both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S support HDR (High Dynamic Range). For more on this colourful new feature you can check out our HDR article. The standard PS4 and PS4 Slim also now supports HDR thanks to a post-launch patch.

The core difference here isn’t HDR, but instead resolution: the PS4 Pro has the ability to output games at a resolution higher than Full HD. Since release we have seen certain titles render at a native 4K resolution while others settle for an upscaled alternative. Several developers are aiming for something “close to 4K resolution” with all future projects.
