I'm a gamer not a blind fanboy. If the Scorpio lives up to the hype then of course I'm interested. The Pro is great but the limitations are so obvious, yet it deserves a chance.
Only real gamers have the perspective to criticize their own platform. It's the fanboys who doesn't like the true corporate slaves that they are.
The market for HDR is also minuscule. Yet it didn't stop Sony from cramming it in. As much as I'm enjoying my Pro the lack of 4K Bluray decreased its overall premium quality.
Oh be quite, Im trying to enjoy my PS Pro. All this noise from MS is a huge distraction.
A few of the so called native 4K games like ESO are not actually native 4K. I know because I have actually seen ESO in native 4K on the TV display with a high end PC before. It's extremely pixel dense that affords a very high field of view. The PS Pro version seems to be lacking half of this pixel density which makes sense because it retains the same FoV as the standard PS4.
Need. More. Pro games. I'm at the point where I guide my purchase decisions on if games are Pro enhanced or not.
Mine would randomly lose HDMI connection and blink into a black screen for half second before the picture is restored. Really annoying during gameplay. The only way to fix this is to power down and power cycle the system.
BF1 on the Pro is definitive console experience. Not as good as the PC, but finally console gamers no longer have suffer bad textures and sub 1080p resolution. Finally the dream is realized. Any console gamers not playing this on the Pro is missing out.
So I finally tried some Pro games that isn't crap and I'm amazed. Uncharted looks mind blowing with checkerboard upscale. This looks superior to anything I have on PC and I have a 980 GTX. Another game that really impressed me is Ratchet and Clank, HDR really made this game pop. Very impressive.
However my issue with the Pro remains. There's a huge gulf between the good Pro games and crap Pro games. The experience is very inconsistent, and it takes a massive di...
I guess the other 30% must be Sony fanboys who does spin control and tell you the problem doesn't exist.
If you expect PC level of performance from the Pro then you'll be disappointed. Even low tier gaming PCs can crush the Pro easily. We're talking about a console that lacks the power to run most games at 1080p 60 FPS with "high" settings.
It's easy to notice the difference if it's in 60 FPS. Way to drop the ball Sony.
They should call it Fraud K.
Sony should only sell the Pro model here on out. Because if not, every game Pro game will be nothing more than a remastered version of the PS4. It will never live up to its potential.
Can't wait. At first I was concerned but the power of the Pro really set it apart from the basic PS4.
The biggest problem with the Pro isn't the specs. It's how it's being held back by the PS4 peasants. We will never know it's true potential as it's being relegated to being nothing more than an upscaling and better textures machine.
The Pro master race.
It's fraud K. Or just call it checker board resolution. But it's not 4K. But the fanboys like call something that is not 4K as 4K because if you repeat a lie enough, it'll become true.
Do not cheap out a 4K tv. If you buy into the HDR hype then you'll need to invest in a quality 10 bit panel with enough nits to display the color brightness, and it's not just colors and contrast either. You also must ensure that your TV have low input lag in game mode with HDR, or even if it supports game mode in HDR at all.
Long story short, you will not be pulling out the TV you need from the Walmart bargain bin on Black Friday.
Very fast. 1 TB isn't enough unless you're the type who constantly delete stuff.
