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.
So if they dont fix their game they are bad guys, but if they do fix their game its broken and they didnt do a good job. No pleasing people like you. People that probably played the game for 40+ hours and got a refund.
I am glad they are continuing to work on the game and I believe a year out this game will live up to what they promised. It's sad that the game wasnt what it should have been a launch and its good that people who are really upset managed to get refunds. ...
Right. The sad thing is you have these people behaving like this stuff is worse than the real violence. All it does is devalue real world events. Then you have this ridiculous notion that people are encouraged to commit real violence, sexual, physical, or both from digital content is nothing short of heinous. This is just the outdated argument that music, comics, and movies as well as other forms media lead to actual violence in the real world. It's sad to see that no matter how much thin...
In Japan it may end up being an exclusive because Microsoft just doesnt have a foothold there. However, in the West it will be on the Microsoft console and PS4. I am more curious if Kingdom Hearts 3 will come to PC with this new Xbox One and Windows 10 initiative that Microsoft is doing. Then there is the possibility of the NX, albeit a small one with all of the unknowns.
I like No Man's Sky, but I didnt buy it because I waited to hear reviews and see what people I trust have to say about it. I don't agree that the game is bad, but I do think that it isn't worth $60 and there are missing features for sure.
I did my job as a consumer and didn't throw $60 around like it was nothing or buy a product with overly high expectations. It's called being informed. If you aren't informed as a consumer you have no one to blame b...
All the in game man butt is just a male power fantasy.
