So many emotions all at once. I almost forgot how good gaming experiences can be.
Sure, but that isnt a good thing. Because devs will be porting from the weaker console. Same way they did with games from the PS2 to the Original Xbox or from the 360 to the PS3, so we didnt get to see the true potential of what most games could have been if they had started out being developed on the more powerful console.
The biggest advantage for Microsoft is that 4k tvs will be in a lot more homes by then. So they want have to convince people 4K is the way to go.
Yes one year later Microsoft is set to release a more power console. ONE YEAR later. If they where coming out this November at the same price, than that would be something to celebrate. Instead you are talking about a console that is releasing ONE YEAR from now.
Well Polygon is a joke in general.
If you think the specs of the Scorpio is enough for a real game to be in Native 4k you are sadly mistaken. Even 1080s struggle to do it on a nice PC. Scorpio will be the most powerful console, but that doesnt mean it has enough power to have the majority of their games be Native 4k. We wont see that as a standard until the release of the next generation.
If this is what they needed to scarfice to keep the price at $399 right now, then I am willing to let it go. Does this feature matter? Yes. Are people right to be upset? Yes. Yes, they can be upset at a feature they wanted but isnt there. At the same rate, people should take a realistic look at this missing feature. I am getting a PS4Pro to play Games not to watch Movies. From the start Sony has been about Games over Movies this generation and that has worked out well for them.
So people would be fine with paying $500 for this beast of a console? I dont think so. This isnt a new generation of consoles, its an enhancement for the current model. This is meant to hold people over until the PS5 drops. To give gamers a taste of 4k now and go full native 4k when the PS5 hits.
People are fooling themselves if they think the Scorpio is going to be native 4k out of the gate. The Scorpio isnt powerful enough for that. Hell PCs with 1080s in them arent power...
PS4Pro isn't the next generation in hardware, whether a .5 step in the direction of what is too come. Thats what it should be, otherwise this would be a new console altogether. In the same way that the New 3DS is still a 3DS.
Some people are looking for this generational leap in a .5 upgrade and that is not what this console has been marketed as nor has Sony been unclear on its messaging. People know right now what this device is about and what it will offer. If that is...
I really like how Sony is handling developers making games for PS4Pro. I have no doubt that some developers would charge for extra features or make PS4Pro games that ran terrible on the standard PS4. Giving developers options is nice and all, but screwing over the consumer should not be one of those options.
Just budget everything out from now and you will be fine. Gaming has never been a cheap hobby, which is why you need to budget effectively.
I dont own a ps4 or a 4k tv yet. So for me this is a perfect entry point.
Completely agree. I think some of the negative reactions Sony is experiencing is a bit silly and the other is more of a matter of seeing is believing. I think that is definitely the case with HDR. Its a big thing, but until people see it on a decent tv they arent going to get it. Same way people where fine with standard definition games and then HD gaming came around. Once people see it, they will immediately get it and want it.
I bet Phil Spencer isn't pleased with this development. He works his ass off to make Microsoft seem like the good guys and some idiot exec blow it for him in minutes.
They hit the magic number and its releasing this year. I am all for it.
They already confirmed it would have no microtransactions in the article. We might see DLC, but no microtransactions.
You joke, but I wouldnt be surprise if this means the NX will have some sort of ties to the iOs going forward. Clearly, Nintendo and Apple already make a lot of money together, so why stop at just this point.
I played Destiny for over 300 hours and realized I hated it. So what. I still got my money's worth. Refunds arent for people that realize 30+ hours into a game they just dont like it. Refunds are for people so dissatisfied with their purchase initially that they want their money back. Two hours into a game is more than enough time for anyone to realize that a game isnt worth the money they spent on it.
Sometimes we as consumers buy crap products, that in hindsight was n...
Nice Spoiler. What the hell.
The major thing they are going to need to patch in is the multiplayer the way they originally said it would be in there. I dont think its beyond them to do that so we will see in time if they manage to do it. Still its good to see them hard at work on the game.
