How to Extend the Life of Your PS4
When Sony first released the 4th rendition of their gaming console, the PlayStation, in 2013, it was released with an estimated average lifespan of 5 years. This lifespan remained unchanged through the PS4 Pro's release and would only increase by a year with the PS5 2020 release.
