If you're going for the number of units shipped alone, there's not much to argue that Sony has won the battle to dominate the current generation of console games. We are different to try all available platforms, but this is not the case for many people, and the PlayStation 4 has shifted a huge amount of sales.
No wonder - there have been great exclusive games from the right to launch the console before this, potentially the end of its life cycle. The PlayStation 5 console might be, but if you don't have a PS4 now is still a great time to get on board. There are plenty of cheap games to enjoy, and you can pick up a console for some of the best deals if you're patient.

Playstation 4 Pro Call of Duty: modern bundle of war
If you've been taken on by the idea of a new call above duty, but want a PS4 Pro to come in a package rather than a standard PS4, this is the same for you too. The good news is that modern warfare is a visual powerhouse too. In particular, during some campaign missions you will struggle to find the difference between the game and reality.
Playstation VR bundles
One of the big advantages that the PS4 has over the Nintendo Switch or the Xbox is that it has the ability to go into a full VR console if you want it (we're not counting of course the fun Nintendo Labo VR kit here!).
Playstation VR game console for an additional fee, but many are the gateway to the real VR experience and games for the inquisitive. There are several packs to be found for it too, including the ones we've highlighted below.
Playstation VR Mega Pack
The best way to get started with PlayStation VR is to immerse yourself in as many experiences as possible, and this mega pack is perfect for that. You will be able to sample a bunch of vignettes in VR worlds before doing more fights in other worlds. You can visit the legendary fantasy adventure in Skyrim or book a brilliant and inventive platformer in the Astro Bot Rescue Mission. For being sporty, golf is the perfect cleanser.
If you really want to experience the power of immersive VR, we're almost scared to recommend Resident Evil VII - it's legitimately awful, and should stay with you for a while.
