"That explains the lack of optical out"
PS4 Pro has an optical out...... you're getting confused with the slim.
http://cdn3.dualshockers.co... - third jack from the top is an optical out.
"... after all, they're the ones who do the QA testing..."
Sony would not have been the ones doing the QA.
"Technically 'ad nauseum' doesn't mean anything since 'nauseum' is not even a Latin word. But 'ad nauseum' only means 'to the point of being nauseated' and has no caveat of number of people speaking something."
no. it's "ad nauseam", not "ad nauseum". that's the spelling. and it's a term that applies to a discussion that has been discussed too often/long:
"Ad nauseam is ...
I don't think so... there'd be no reason for MS to rush the release date of their console.
"Oh? So you're going to provide me with links to this specific author discussing this topic ad nauseum? Because if you can't do that then guess what? This author's opinion is one of a kind and unique."
that's not what ad nauseam means. it means that a specific topic (in this case, UHD support) has been discussed so often that there is nothing else that can be said about it that hasn't already been said. the author bringing up UHD support is n...
"Ziggurcat, That is not a good reply to my argument..."
how so? TLoU is being bumped up to a native 4K from the current version that has already been increased to the current HW's capabilities, so it's not being ported from the PS3 version. you can't simply dismiss the game being run at a native 4K on Pro just because it was originally a PS3 game any more than if, say, the GeoW Ultimate Edition were to get the same treatment on Scorpio.
"Actually it offers the author's unique opinion..."
Actually, no. The bulk of the article is about the lack of UHD support, which has been discussed ad nauseam.
"What else is he going to say? When PS4 launched he likely considered it a Premium product. Suddenly it's not?"
How is House saying it's a premium product not valid, though? What does claiming House's statement isn't valid have to do with...
TLoU, and Skyrim are going to run at a native 4K, so you're wrong.
when those games were initially released is irrelevant. the fact that they're going to run at a native 4K means that the Pro is capable of native 4K.
Pro is going to have TLoU, and Skyrim running at a native 4K (there'll likely be others later on as well), so that'd be an incorrect statement.
it's no different than the difference between upscaled 1080p vs native 1080p...
"Wow, look at the butt hurt defense springing up because of this article."
hmm, no... the article offers nothing to the conversation that hasn't already been said.
"First of all, a Sony employee calling their own device a premium device is as credible and valid as Rebecca Black saying she's a great singer."
How is House saying this is a premium product not valid?
"Thirdly, if someone...
"How can this be a premium product if it is only $400?"
the price of the product doesn't necessarily imply that it's not a premium device. compared to the regular PS4, it's a premium product.
Not only that, the author's arguments are ridiculous:
1. The lack of UHD blu-ray support doesn't inhibit the console's ability to play games, nor does it affect its ability to upscale to 4K or even run any game at a native 4K (in the case of TLoU, and Skyrim). This is a gaming device, afterall, not a UHD blu-ray player.
2. The speed of the HDD is negligible - there is next to no discernible difference between a 5400RPM and a 7600RPM HDD in a console. ...
I don't think Scorpio will have any issues...
"... The devs aren't asking for it and neither were the consumers."
i guess you must have missed all of the complaining about games not being 1080p/60fps, then...
shouldn't the comparison be made against the Xbox One version if the author is going to claim it has "Xbox One Quality Textures"? They're also comparing something that is upscaling to 4K from 1080p (and using better textures than the original version, not 4K textures) against something that is probably running the game at a native 4K (and actually using 4K textures), so right there the comparison isn't even fair.
i remember there being some kind of complaint that there was nothing regarding instructions on the controls - looks like they've addressed that "problem."
Too many feels 5.3/10 - IGN
Me, too. It is one of the best kart racers I've ever played, and was the only game I played consistently online for an entire year (the grind to get the platinum was real when you decided to not get your XP with creations).
