    I would challenge the need for a pure sign APC for any equipment with a switched mode power supply. For equipment with linear power supplies, then yes, pure sine is important, but modified sine (Basically a triangle wave) causes no issues for SM PSUs and is usually deployed in data centres.

    You need to decide how long you need the UPS to keep the PS4 alive for. Even a basic unit will probably run it for 15 minutes or so. I doubt you could configure a smart UPS to shut down a PS4 in the same way it will a server or PC, but I don't have any specific knowledge of this.

    Do you need to keep your TV / Monitor alive while you power down the PS4?

    If so look at a 1000VA unit, but otherwise 600VA is more than enough.

    1VA is about 0.85W, so if you multiply up the power required by the TV and PS4, you can work out the minimum requirement. I would then add about 30%, as this will give you extra battery stay alive life.

    Worth considering getting PS+ as well so you can have cloud backups of your save data.
