It won't. PS4.5/4K is just gonna be a PS4 with an upgraded hdmi port and bigger hard drive. It won't have a better cpu or gpu, it's just gonna be able to play 4K movies.
Yes, 4K gaming in a console is currently impossible to achieve even at 30fps. They use mobile hardware and the mobile versions of that hardware for 4K either doesn't exist or cost too much for the PS4K to cost anything below 1500$. The video card needed for this would cost more than the PS4 itself does.
A good idea would be to add ps3 chip in there for ps3 bc. I doubt it would cost much to add this point.
For this price, there is no way it's gonna be able to play games at 4K. Maybe if you tripled that price, they could make a machine powerful enough to, but at 500$ the most you're gonna get is the possibility to play 4K videos and maybe a bigger hard drive. You won't get extra cpu and gpu power. 4K at this point is still a luxury even on PC, I also doubt mobile parts for consoles exist that would make 4K possible.
That was actually announced last week. There is also some special items that come with day 1 edition.
Nintendo of Europe already confirmed this was fake. Also, the confidential property sticker is a dead giveaway this is fake.
What is there to acquire? Most of the employees there were reallocated to another Sony studio. Most didn't lose their jobs.
I am not interested in VR no matter how cheap it is and I will likely never be.
September 30th is screaming placeholder date anyway. I wouldn't believe it if it was March 31st, June 30th or December 31st as well.
I seriously doubt it will release this year outside of Japan.
And you think Sony will not do the same and release a slim ps4 at about the same time? They're gonna be one step behind Sony.
I decided to stop caring about trophies recently (unless it's a game I really wanna platinum). Ever since then, the backlog is somehow clearing itself much faster.
I didn't buy the witness because I refuse to pay 40$ for an indie, what makes you think I will pay 60$ for one? 20$ max for an indie or it's not worth it.
The gamecube version was the exact same thing, except with a different controller scheme. Same graphics, same audio, same everything else. The only difference is that they were mirror versions of each others (so if you had to go right at some place, you had to go left in the other).
Even if more powerful, developers won't bother with it because why do that when you can make games for PS4/X1 which have a bigger install base or start preparing for a PS5 game, which is gonna be a lot more powerful than the NX. For the NX to have been relevant, it needed to be released when the PS4 and X1 were released. It's too late now and Nintendo is once again one step behind. However, you're insane to think it will be more powerful, because...
Even if it were to come out tomorrow, they're already too late.
Actually, from what I am seeing, it seems to me MS is trying to get rid of Xbox by slowly merging everything Xbox related with their PC architecture to make the transition of discontinuing Xbox easier in the future.
There isn't even any confirmed dev kits out there, how would you want less secrets now? Any previous news about dev kits were rumors from unreliable sources.
I am almost certain Sly will happen eventually. Sucker punch having moving on doesn't mean it won't happen because thieves in time wasn't made by Sucker punch anyway, it was made by Sanzaru games who made it. If they won't make a 5th game, which they might, Sony will hand it over to someone else. It's not a series Sony is not gonna continue.
What mistakes did the first game make? For a first game in a series, it was actually pretty good. If there is as much as an improvement between WD2 and WD as there was between AC and AC2, we're in for a much better sequel.
