It seems obvious that a big reason a new PlayStation 4 exists is because of virtual reality. But if you’ve got no interest in VR, do you still want PS4K?
Well I usually buy the remodeled version of consoles from past generations when they release so it being somewhat of a small boast which will help games perform better is a no brainer now.
1080p @60 fps, day one for me!
if current games are patched and we get [email protected] or better then [email protected]$ yes!
Hell yes! Plus Sony (rumour) have said that a patch should be implemented before October (for older games) so I am pretty damn hopeful =) I hope "Neo" and "Scorpio" and even the "NX" will all have the same computing power so the power debate dies down. And the focus will be games/exclusives.
So much BSing in this article that it's not even funny. Getting ridiculous now. **We’ve known for a while that the standard PS4 can’t handle VR** Get the F out of here. Developers, journalists and gamers who have PLAYED it already were having no problems having fun with it. Complete nonsense. No developer making games has come out and said "nope.""This thing sucks." "Can't do proper VR on it." Not one. **which is why PSVR comes with that Wii-shaped box that provides a necessary boost**.... More B***S***! There is no extra power in the box. It processes audio and projects video to the screen like an A/V transmitter. Another lie. Saying "Neo" is coming to do VR is more speculation and rumor with no facts. Rumors about Neo being for the core PlayStation gamer. More like graphics whores,dual owner PS4/PC elitists and Xbox fans trying to cause rifts because Microsoft is getting their @ss kicked with all that money they are supposed to have. The specs I've seen don't even qualify as some huge upgrade. Especially compared to top PCs even though consoles aren't even in competition with PCs. They're closed systems. It almost looks like ultra hd/ bluray/4K upscale power. Not "let's make better VR power." It'll be funny the reaction of gamers if they DON'T announce a console. Acting like current gaming is already done while not even playing upcoming games like ace combat, Detroit, Horizon, GT,etc. Uncharted 4 proved there is power even if you have to meet development deadlines. And what if developers make 1080p/30fps on the new "neo?" Will you lambast the developers for not giving you 60fps? If it's playable,stable and fun, I don't give an F if it's 30/60/90/120.Some gamers need to get their priorities in check. And article writers need to go back to school on FACT checking. It's getting monotonous.
I assume the upgrade just improves the secondary functions, like FullHD replay saves, perhaps some faster loading, etc. I don't believe Sony will want to split their current PS4 user-base between those with an old PS4, and those with a much more powerful new PS4, which could affect the games being made for that old version.
Gamers are once again proving that they know more than the average "journalist" in this industry. Having read it, that is some pretty disgusting and misinforming journalism right there. I'm surprised Arthur Gies hasn't decided to write an article spreading such BS. I suppose it's only a matter of time.
Funny thing is, people who keep saying that the Neo is for VR are forgetting that the same leaks explicitly stated that games released in future should be playable both on the PS4 and the Neo, PSVR games run on the console, not the headset so this goes for VR games as well... Yes, the Neo can improve graphics and framerate for non-VR games so it's logical it can do the same for VR games as well, doesn't mean those VR games can't run on the base PS4...
Depends how much better it is than the current PS4 model. I probably won't get it if its biggest selling point is being better for VR.
IF...I get good trade in value for ps4.
If it can play UHD Blu-ray, I'm happy.
Yes, bc umm 4K and stuff... This gives me good reason to buy a 4k tv, plus it'll be nice to have A 4K BLU-RAY PLAYER.
I have no reason to fork out another 300 quid currently. Im getting psvr but sony need to show i meed neo
"We’ve known for a while that the standard PS4 can’t handle VR" MORE LIES. Journalistic integrity is simply being flushed down the toilets at this point, with everybody jumping on the bandwagon based on what one person (who's claim is easily cancelled out at this stage by all the positive PSVR impressions so far), said. It reminds me of last year's "sparse" bandwagon, that people no longer care to bring up this year.
I'm interested in PSVR, but I'm not interested in buying another console when the one I have works just fine.
Don't know what it is yet I'll decide when Sony confirm.
I like to know what I'm buying before I even contemplate it, all rumours at the moment we shall see. Chances are I will upgrade bought my ps4 day one and loved it however I won't purchase a Neo or whatever day one I'll wait for an extra few months for one of the special editions to arrive ;)
Yes, I want to play Witcher 3 at 1080/60
so just become one guy makes the claim that vr will be terrible on the launch consoles, you claim it as fact? here is a fact: people have been able to test ps vr for the past year or so with a flawless gaming experience. were they somehow playing it on a console that doesnt even exist yet???
Yes, i'm a sort of a graphic whore. And before someone says "PC", i have that too but i want to play all my PS4 games on an evolved PS4 ;P And btw, stupid article.... the normal PS4 works with PSVR.... a ps4 neo isn't necessary for those who wants to play with PSVR and have a PS4.
What does the Neo have to do with VR?? I really don't get why people keep repeating that stupid notion... The Neo (if real and the specs are real) will make sure that games will look and perform better. Each and every single game, according to the leaks, should also be able to run on the PS4, this includes the PSVR games!
I'm buying both Xbox.5 and PS4K and I have zero interest in VR.
PS4 Neo doesn't even exist to me until Sony state it is real.
