No, not at all...

The PS3 was NOT a 'top of the line' blu ray player when it released...that was arguably the most important part of the PS3 having a blu ray drive to begin with...It had a 2x BD drive, and the system didn't ship with a handful of promised BD enabled features. Certain audio codecs couldn't be pushed, etc. It was significantly under higher priced dedicated blu ray players feature wise, though...even at $500 ...

^seriously?

Sounds a lot like the MS fanatics' stance when the PS3 had a blu ray drive. "Who is going to use a console for blu ray movies?"...turns out, a lot of people..it was the number one blu ray playing device for years...released in the exact same situation...stand alone players were double the price of the consoles, and the console had better connectivity options entirely...things like BD live, etc. were all added to it with simple software updates, whe...

Steam machines and SteamOS's only drawback is linux only. Linux itself isn't the drawback, only that the market for it is extremely small. I'm all for linux based gaming, but the simple truth is that 95%+ of PC game development is DX focused, and steam OS has done next to nothing with promoting linux based game development.

If SteamOS was opened up to support DX, Steam machine popularity would be very different, and arguably a very attractive alternative to cons...

yeah Sony not allowing it (at least to whatever vague degree they've talked about so far) vs. PC allowing it doesn't change the advantage a higher frame rate will give in specific games, especially those with simulation and server refreshes tied to client frame rates...It's only that with PC users can adjust the settings to maximize frames if it they see fit...

the Pro, you can't, apparently...so if that is actually true, it's already happening...

no one moved any goal posts...It's only people cherry picking aspects of the argument...

upscaling is NEVER better than native...period...

The typical debate among the PS4 and Xbox one was the PS4 being native 1080, the xbox upscaling to 1080...or the PS4 being like 900 native upscaled to 1080, the XBO upscaling from 720...and MS nutters would stomp and shout about the xbox one being 'super good' at upscaling because of it's esram or w/e.....

The PS4's jaguar cores would be terrible at a desktop OS in any sense of performance (well, in fact, they pretty much were, and is why the line never took off at all)...their IPC figures are abysmal...The problem with desktop APU's is that they generally need more 'real' cpu cores in order to maintain acceptable performance a...

What 3 year old product keeps the same price as when it hits the market? This is like the most fundamental business concept surrounding 'selling things'...

you honestly think the seller would expect the same price that others paid for the exact same car years ago? Absolutely no...

@EDMIX

You worded that to make it sound like you can't compare discrete GPU's to APU's, and even went as far as sort of saying apu's are 'better' as they're on the 'actual metal'...Where the actual gpu is within the hardware has absolutely nothing to do with it....AMD has come a long way with APU's recently, but in general, they're still far behind the performance capabilities of even mid range discrete gpu's...

Still am not sure why the rules have been changed...again...when discussing these different devices.

Xbox One was weaker than the PS4, and both of which were weaker than even typical mid range PC hardware in 2013 (albeit, mid range hardware PC were still over double the price, so the situation was acceptable)...debates about this were off limits, regardless, though...consoles were a 'thing', and PC was separate...

Ps4 Pro is over twice as powerful...

^How is that relevant, though?

Windows 10 PC's will play xbox one games (every one of them from this point forward) at higher settings, too...and a win10 PC is not an 'xbox'.

Horses will have more health than your player

Horses will have weapons inherent to them; like in their saddles or something so you can use extra special stuff while riding one

Physx has been morphed into a middleware suite for years...it's not a gpu-only option for specific Nvidia cards like it used to be...it's more like competitor to something like Havoc that has various implementation options outside of the closed hardware option that it used to be...

^But wait...Shouldn't the embarrassing part of being called a 'gamer' be the purchase justification that runs rampant on the other side of the fence?

Purchasers keep throwing their hands in the air about how 'we' haven't played it, so can't complain, or don't fully understand exactly what HG lied about...while the non-purchasers continue to heave 'glad I didn't buy it' stuff around...

Not saying either is worse ...

right? Overall the industry loves throwing around that consumers are the 'problem'...but ironically that assessment generally stems from the media...and, at the same time, the media pushes out shat like this...

The relativism of 'opinion' within the comments are ridiculous.

Do you guys know where laws came/come from (in the legal sense, not so much scientific)? They're...opinions...that, well at least with good governments, are put into effect by people voted into position...and the best part;...votes...are...opinions ...

When a certain opinion gains enough support, it's more than a merely subjective statement that holds zero weight...

"Radeon HD 7970 (pretty much the exact GPU PS4 has)"

uh, not even close...the 7970/280x is well over twice as powerful as the DESKTOP equivalent of the PS4's gpu...The PS4's gpu is a hybrid of a 7770 and 7850, but clocked much lower than the dekstop versions...7970/280x's range from around 4.0 to 4.4Tflops depending on OC (most of which were factory OC'd by non reference card makers)...

Let it go...these debates are pointless...

2160p is the accepted '4k' standard, or UHD-1...That resolution is 3840 x 2160...it's not quite 4,000 pixels wide like the original 4k format, but maintains the 16x9 aspect ratio for TV's and monitors. The only 4,000+ 4k format in use is digital film cameras that utilize non-consumer sized aspect ratios...
