Is it worth buying PS4 now since the PS5 is upcoming?


Mainly depends on the game time. If you have time to play, those classic exclusive games on PS4 are enough for you until PS5 released. (Blood Source, GT, Ares 4, Spider-Man, P5 ... too many) Moreover, when the PS5 was first released, new games were generally compatible with the PS4 platform.

In addition, at this period of purchase, the price of many classic games used discs is relatively favourable, and there are a lot of masterpieces around $14+. Of course, it's normal for a digital version of the game to go to hell every time.

If you don’t have too much time, but just come for two in your spare time and have a PC platform to play games at the same time, it is not recommended to buy at this time. After all, it has been made clear that the PS5 released this year and it has been confirmed to support mainstream PS4 games.

Of course, when the PS5 is released, there will be many common problems in the era, such as insufficient early supply, high prices, design defects (such as the blue light of PS4.), lack of games, incompatible output display and so on.

If you have time and are willing to invest, it is recommended to buy PS4 at this time. After all, there are lot of game you can play on ps4. When PS5 and its price are stable, you sell PS4.

If you don’t have much time and want to play again, it is recommended to buy a PS4 PRO second-hand. After all, the price is relatively cheaper. When the time comes, you can buy PS5 or continue to play PS4.

If you don’t have time and just have a whim, it is recommended to wait for the PS5 to come out and wait and see.
