The one-billion-dollar problem needs some serious consideration. Second, since they have the latest system the game business might deliver, who will want an old-gen console? And second, it could possibly lead to e-waste disposal at home, which is not ideal for the climate.
1. Give it Away
Although it might not be the most common gift around, particularly on the market with the new PS5, it sounds like a decent idea to offer your PS4 away. Will you have brothers, nephews, or relatives younger than you who enjoy playing games? You might choose to offer them your PS4 Fat/Slim/Pro.
2. Sell It ASAP!
If you’re 100 percent assured about having a PS5, you will certainly be benefited by a few hundred dollars from selling your old consoles. You can post the listings for PlayStation gamers on eBay, Gumtree, or even on Facebook buy-and-sell pages.
However, as quickly as possible, you will have to make your pass. The retail price of PS4 falls monthly with the arrival of PS5. If you have any incentive, such as free physical games or a promise, you will get a nice price.
3. Use It As A Media Centre
The PS4 is not only a game hub. It also acts as an entertainment outlet for multimedia, with installed platforms such as Netflix, Spotify, Pandora, Hulu, and YouTube.
That said, should you get a PS5, you can always use your PS4 as a media hub. Plus, if you keep your PS4 as a media center at home, you might play DVDs and standard HD Blu-Rays on your PS4, and you wouldn’t require a DVD or Blu-Ray player. An outstanding IPS display and a decent speaker are everything you need; then you’re good to go!
4. Frame It As A Collection
Finally, you might want to retain it as a series. In 15 or 20 years, consoles such as this would be uncommon. In the next decades, enthusiasts will probably be searching for these PS4s, much as certain Gen-Z and millennials are looking to get their hands on the old PS1 consoles.
Your PS4 will be just fine in the next two decades of proper upkeep. Besides, if you frame it as a set, in the next few years you might remember the good old days of your PS4. Who does, huh?
