The best PlayStation 4 Pro bundles
While Playstation 4 Pro bundles are constantly shifting from store to store, we’ve listed and ranked the best current options from the major retailers below so you don’t have to do the sniffing scratching yourself.
Remember that the value of a bundle will ultimately come down to whether or not you were going to purchase the included game (or games) anyway and while some bundles are obviously better priced than others, you should check to see if that saving is worth .
PS4 Pro 1TB | Universal Remote | Prey | Horizon: Zero Dawn | Fallout 4 | only $539 @ JB Hi-Fi
This is the best value bundle available at the moment, with three excellent titles and a Universal Remote, this is a no-brainer. Horizon Zero Dawn has been lauded as the game of the year so far and Prey isn’t far behind, and while Fallout 4 was released over a year ago, it is still a stellar game with a lasting appeal given its recent-ish support for user-created mods on consoles. The catch is that it’s only available until the 28/06/2017 or while stocks last.
View this $539 deal at JB Hi-Fi on the store’s PS4 bundle page.
PS4 Pro 1TB | Universal Remote | Horizon: Zero Dawn | only $500 @ The Gamesmen
One of the cheapest PS4 Pro bundles available, and one of the cheapest prices for the console itself for that matter, so why not grab yourself a bonus Universal Remote and copy of the year’s most critically-acclaimed title so far.

PS4 Pro 1TB | Universal Remote | Horizon: Zero Dawn | Watch Dogs 2 | The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind |$559 @ EB Games
This bundle is perfect for anyone that is at least half-interested in any of these games and wants to get a PS4 Pro console on the cheap. Horzion: Zero Dawn is the real selling point in this package, but if you’re a fan of The Elder Scrolls or into MMORPGs then this is sure to make you happy.

Cheap 4K HDR TV deals
If you’re getting a PS4 Pro, you’ll want to maximise your visual experience with a TV that supports 4K and HDR (High Dynamic Range). Naturally, after putting some cash down for a new console you don’t want to spend more than you should, that’s why you should check out our best cheap 4K TV deals page. Just remember to keep an eye out for those essential features, 4K and HDR.
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 like of Uncharted 4, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, 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 colours 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 Amazon Prime Instant Video and Netflix. Sony has already confirmed there will be hundreds of hours of 4K Netflix content at launch. There’s a lot of free 4K content on the YouTube app too.
Does the PS4 Pro support 4K Blu-rays?
No. This was a surprise if we’re honest, especially as the new Xbox One S console does. 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.
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?
Early reports say yes. 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, 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.
What are the best games on PS4 Pro?
We’ve dived through our back catalogue of PS4 games that have received a PS4 Pro update patch to see which ones look the best and have a noticeable difference. Take a look at our extensive feature – The best PS4 Pro games.
