    If your listener knows that you are referring to a specific PS4, then the definite article is fine. Using the indefinite article would be OK in any context.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes. "The" is the definite article. "A" and "an" are indefinite articles.
