Sony cheaped out HARD with the PS4 pro. It’s obvious now that the 50% boost in RAM on Xbox wasn’t just for marketing.

Jeez, EA mismanages yet another developer? Who's next, D.I.C.E.?

Even gambling is better. At least in gambling, there's a small chance of winning back money. Loot boxes/crates/whatever are worse in that you don't get anything back. Except of course content that's already in the game you paid for...

Not bad, there's a public race track not far from where i live so this is actually a cool perk.

That means Sony must have a pre-written NDA for multiple cases, probably stemming from Naughty Dog. Only a few company leads would have enough power to fire a sexual harassment victim and have their parent company sweep it under the rug...

If Apple can do it, so can MS and Sony. I hope PS4 Pro and Xbox One X last another 5 years.

$500 is still really cheap. Decent desktop PCs are like $1000.

I personally avoid Amazon simply because the company's long term goal is to put places like Best Buy out of business, then jack up their prices once the competition is gone. Best Buy has much better gaming deals than Amazon, especially because of their Gamer Elite program.

I could have sworn Threadripper = Xeon when I went to the AMD conference.

Isn't this GPU meant to run applications like Maya and Vray RT? Not really gaming apps...

Based off the shape, I'm guessing this uses an nVidia Tegra board, putting it on par with the Nintendo Switch spec-wise.

I can't get my external drive to work unless there's no other USB cables plugged in. And I still have to unplug and plug the hard drive USB cord into the PS4 really quickly to activate it. I wouldn't mind a truly compatible hard drive.

The "Xbox One" name was already very confusing since it was the third generation. And unfortunately, they released the Xbox One S last year, which meant that name couldn't be used as a cleaner name for "Xbox One Scorpio." Seriously, who's in charge of branding at Microsoft??

An ultra-hd Blu-ray player is typically $499, so you get that for free. The more I think about it, selling at that price point makes sure that consumers perceive it as a higher quality product than the PS4 Pro. If only 1/10 of new PS4 buyers are choosing the Pro option, that means Sony has failed to communicate it as a significantly more powerful piece of hardware (which it is).

That has created a unique opportunity for Microsoft to market the Scorpio as true 4K hardware, u...

Agreed, what's the point of buying a 4K TV if my console doesn't play 4K Blurays. Sony botched the PS4 Pro by making it mid-range. It doesn't even look like a pro console.

$499 sounds right. Now they just need to make Scorpio Exclusive titles and keep the system name Xbox Scorpio.

Ryzen is where it's at. AMD's out for blood.

Not really, pretty soon it will be the only PS4 model you can buy. But that's because of AMD switching to a new manufacturing process, which is why both Sony and Microsoft did mid-cycle refreshes. Microsoft just took it more seriously.
