According to Sony and Microsoft, the consoles coming this year are half-step measures that will bring more power without abandoning the current hardware. Scorpio, meanwhile, will represent a massive step up.
Have an xbox so its neo for me.... ) follow that with scorpio
I don't have either. So (in order of release) it's the slim to start with Neo after and then when I'm ready... the Scorpio and possibly PS Trinity (PS5)
love that name ... PS Trinity
It depends which games you want to play. Which exclusive games you want to play. On the PS4 side, you have God of War, Day's Gone, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last Guardian, Nioh (from the creators of Ninja Garden, a fast pace Dark Soul-like game with Samurai), Final Fantasy VII Remake, Nier Automate, Star Ocean 5, Detroit Become Human, Spiderman, Yakuza 0 including games already released like Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted 4 and console exclusives like No Man's Sky (coming to PC Steam later) Then we have all of the PS VR games like Resident Evil 7, Final Fantasy XV, Star Wars, Batman Arkham VR... On Microsoft's side we have Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Scaleboumd, Sea of Thieves, Recore, Halo Wars 2, Dead Rising 4, all of them coming to PC. There's also games already released like Halo 5 Guardian and Gears Remastered. I know I am missing a lot on the PS4 (World of Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest Heroes/Builders......) If I am missing any, please let me know.
PS Trinity sounds cool but makes no sense
Just upgrading my PC
@WilliamSheridan The name PS "Trinity" actually makes a lot of sense. PSVR was called "Morpheus", then the upgraded PS4k/4.5 is being called "Neo", so I guess darthv72 is about right with PS5 being called "Trinity".
Trinity - the three persons of the Christian Godhead Unless you want to shoe-horn in the number 3 somewhere, PS5 being called PS Trinity makes no sense. Morpheus (dreams) is related to VR. Neo means new. Trinity has no link to PS5.
@ Fez more like the 3 Entities of the Christian belief system. The Father GOD, The Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Jesus being the only one that may be considered a person. As far as Trinity is concerned I can now see where he can from with the name. Derived from he Matrix
@ Fez, More like the 3 Entities of the Christian belief system. The Father GOD, The Son Jesus and The Holy Spirit. Jesus being the only one that can be considered a person. As far as Trinity is concerned I can now see where that is coming from. Derived from the Matrix Movies. But still don't see that happening. As code names maybe. Morpheus did change to PSVR after all.
I have no interest in xbone since I got a high end PC. I got a PS4 which plays games just fine so I don't see the need for neo yet. So most likely it's going to be a Nintendo NX with Zelda.
Neo for me too but I am still waiting to see if the new console is really worth the upgrade. I still get to play the same games on PS4 and they are plentiful and they look great. For me its only responsible to weigh the cost against what they are offering versus what I already have. Choices are great especially when you are already prepared to play the best games and new VR tech coming to the market. I feel no pressure.
I agree. I've yet to pick up a PS4, sadly. But, if it's not much better in specs, cost much more or at least doesnt look nicer, then I'll just pick up an original ps4.
@makaberrababa Neo is for 4k media. Sonys launching 4k vue this year.. Justlike the xbox one s is for 4k media
Round of applause to you sir for exercising patience and restraint. I still have an issue with these midcycle consoles, it's a jagged pill for me
Neither my regular PS4 is still doing a damn good job @flow Yes I know each game will come with the Neo mode in them but if I'm playing on my standard ps4 it means I won't be playing in Neo mode which I'm totally fine with.
Right and there will be no exclusives for the PS4 Neo. The PS4 Neo will have settings for enhanced resolution for PS4 games almost like a gaming pc. http://www.trustedreviews.c...
I want the monster. It is the only thing that really excited me at E3. I am still smiling.
@William..... Because Sony is naming their projects after Matrix characters.... Morpheus for VR, Neo for Ps4k, Trinity makes sense for ps5
I'm the same. Have an Xbox One. Already preordered the Neo as Ive wanted a PS4 for a while now but held off once the Neo Rumors started circulating. Will only buy an Xbox One S when they give us a Black Option and then will buy a Scorpio next hopefully at launch. My most anticipated game from E3 was Spiderman so I definitely need the Neo in my life :)
How do you pre-order something that doesn't exist and isn't even priced for pre-order?
@Christopher EB games in Australia do pre orders for Consoles as soon as they are confirmed. The moment Andrew House confirmed Neo I was able to pre order. Same thing happened with the Xbox One. Before official pricing for Australia was released they had a default pricing of $999 AUD on their system for it and I was able to pre order.
For me probably Neo, then I will just get a new graphics card for my Xbox needs. It depends though, I am very interested to see what sort of results they can get out of such a powerful console.
All of them for me, plus the NX. And I already have WiiU, XB1 and PS4.
Scorpio, probably get 4 of them. 2 for my son's and one for the wife and one for me.
I'm not really keen on getting either myself. But might get Neo if it's a reasonably priced UHD player coming out this year. UHD would be my only reason for buying one right now. MS I am just disillusioned with because there are so few games to play on the system that interest me, and my current X1 should suffice for the few that I want to play. Scorpio might be worth it, but I"m not too fond of this idea of MS jumping the gun on the next gen so early, since they have a bad habit of dropping support rather quickly. Sony I have a little more faith in with Neo, at least in terms of legacy support, but even then, I'm not too keen on the idea of short console cycles, no matter how much they try to convince me that the legacy hardware will get the same games. I'm just skeptical of new paradigms that change a 40 year old paradigm that wasn't really in need of fixing. So, who knows. Maybe stand alone UHD players will come down to a reasonable price considering there isn't anything in them that isn't in any standard blu-ray player outside an HDMI control chip. Not a fan of price gouging either.
I'm gonna give the X1s and Neo a miss and get a new PC this year. I'll most definitely get the Scorpio and the next Playstation that does 4k gaming.
If u get a new pc I don't get buying scorpio whatsoever. Like at all. Zero sense being made here
My PC is pretty much on it's last legs so I figured now is a good a time as any. I use it mainly for work, I play indie horror games on it sometimes. I promised myself I'd get something capable of VR when I do upgrade (for VR indie horror games.) I do most of my gaming on consoles, I'm probably a little paranoid about software conflicts and stuff messing up my work (it's happened a few times in the past.) I'm not that clued up on the technical side so for me it's something I try to avoid. Being able to share games and hardware like Oculus across the PC/Scorpio seems like a nice feature. I'm happy with the PS4 and X1 for now, but the upgrade to native 4k consoles seems like a sizable jump in power worth investing in.
Agreed. Seems like the decision next year is Scorpio vs PC. This year it's Neo vs Xbox one S. Not much of a decision in either case.
Xbox One S then a Xbox Scorpio when released @MagicBeanz a waste to who exactly , these purchase are not considered a waste . They are purchase I allow myself to purchase with my hard earned money .
Waste of cash if you ask me but do as you will. Scorpio sounds better but you know PS5 will be around the corner as well...
@ Zeref, WHAT? They already launched the NEO when was this, no one ever tells me anything. Hasn't launched yet bud. The "medicinal" weed must be getting to you.
he is rich, leave him be
No problem my Scorpio will suffice till the next Xbox console release after it , so am good till then .
Are you serious, Magic Beans? It's pretty clear he's saying that in 4 years, Neo would have launched already, not that Neo is already out. Sheesh. Truthfully though, if Sony is putting out Neo just 3 years into PS4's life cycle it would stand to reason that 3 years from holiday 2016 there will be a PS5 to replace it.
@Zeref, Sonty already stated that the neo isn't affecting the lifcycle of the PS4 and that the Neo is a high end PS4. traditional life cycles are 5 years on average. 2018 is when we will see the PS5. and in computer components. 1 year can make a huge differnce
Scorpio will be worse. Sure Microsoft will be able to up the power a bit but you will never actually be able to notice the difference if you have the Neo. And it will be more expensive, come out far later and have fewer games without any exclusives. And sell worse.
Yep. I'd rather triple dip on the Xbox, even double dip on the ps4, than get the next Nintendo.
I'm definitely getting the scorpio when it release. I have a 65 inch 4ktv so this would go great with it. Plus I wouldn't have to spend on pc part just to play oculus. I just hope they allow other VR devices to play on it also like HTC vive. I still say many that aren't computer savy in building their own rigs. But want the oculus rift would buy the scorpio. Instead of buying a vr capable pc for $1500.
It will be cheaper to build a PC of the same power as Scorpio dude. I have a 75" UHD 4K beast of a TV.
But that GTX1070 will be cheaper when Scorpio arrives.
Um no. You're looking at "minimum" $1000 for an all new PC build.
@timotim & Software_Lover SSSSSSH... Let the master race live in their fantasy land where a $300 dollar computer comes with better graphical capabilities than a scorpio or even a NEO... And on top of that. those monster gaming computers magically build themselves so even dummies can do it!!!! :D /s
I'm going to get an xbox s and scorpio when it releases. My only concern is that upgrading and transfering content on the xbox is easy considering the external, but how would it work on the neo? I hope I can take out my internal hdd and swap it with the neo's. The good thing about current generation consoles is that license movements are easier to manage. You simply make the xbox one and ps4 your "main console" and you have access to your content, offline or online. It was a pain in the ass having to transfer licenses on the xbox 360, and only allowed to do it once a year if you upgraded your console.
For now I have no plans to buy any of them, since I already own a PS4 and XB1. I will wait and see what exactly they have to offer, and at what price, before making a decision.
Good point. All this, "I'm getting this" makes no sense considering that outside of some rumored or useless specs being announced, and confirmation that they're coming, one of which we have no idea when, it really makes no sense to make a buying decision. Luckily though, I hope at least, no one is actually spending money to secure a product they know very little about. Still time for more details to be known. When the time comes, one can decide what is right for them based on whatever factors they want. Otherwise, I was content finishing out the next few years with my current X1 and PS4, so can still do the same. I'd hate to have to go through this whole dog and pony show again in 3 years time, and hopefully the upgrade cycle doesn't come to that going forward and this is just a one time deal due to changes in chip fabrication processes, or whatever. Games coming out show that there is plenty of power going forward for what we have, it just won't support a burgeoning TV format which has very little adoption, and likely still won't even when the Scorpio releases. But hey, everyone wants 4K gaming I guess.
None. Because already has a PS4 and a PC. And PS4K, Scorpio won't have any exclusives so I'm not missing any games. So my next console will be PS5, and NX* depending upon what it is.
Phil did say the Xbox One will have exclusives not coming to PC. @SCW1982 Oh yes he did.
No he didn't.
Getting the Scorpio. Skipping the Xbox One S because I already have the Xbox One.
Neither. I'm practically happy with what I've got, at the moment.
The gaming PC I built 2 months ago, I already have a PS4. I'm just returning this 980 Ti for a 1070 G1 Gaming I have preordered, 'n I'm set for a gaming platform for a while.
That's the same graphics card I'm getting as soon as they are back in stock. I have the MSI GTX 970 Gaming right now and it has been fantastic, so I want to stick with the same basic design. Other than that, I already have a PS4 and I'm 90% sure I'll get the Neo when it comes out. I also will consider getting the NX or the Scorpio down the line.
Yeah, I preordered on the 15th, they finally updated today with a delivery estimate: June 30th - July 6th. It took forever, hopefully they stick to that schedule. I just wanna be done with all the major HW installs on this thing and play some more Overwatch.
Stick to my PS4 and maybe look into PC gaming.
I might cave in and buy a Neo for 60fps which will be really nice. Depends on what exactly the Neo will offer extra. Right now my PS4 and MSi Dominator is enough.
Neo then Scorpio.
Neo for me depending on just how much of a difference it is to my ps4. Own a pc so no need for Scorpio.
I will wait to see what Sony brings to take on MS next gen console Scorpio and decide from there....
Shouldn't be waiting too long, Sony confirmed the existence of the Neo. We'll see what it is soon!
Neither the Neo nor the Scorpio are true "next gen" consoles, they are something we haven't seen before: more powerful mid-gen updates to the original PS4 and XB1. They don't have their own games as true new generation consoles would have, they merely play the same games with higher framerates and enhanced graphics.
Getting the Scorpio.
So far, none of the above. I don't have a 4K TV, don't feel the need for one, and I'm more than happy with my current console.
I have a 4K TV, and I still don't feel the need for either. I do want a UHD player, and that feature may make me go for a console over a stand alone player though. I'd be more prone to going with Neo just because I feel I haven't gotten my moneys worth out of the X1, and I also know that there is a even newer X1 releasing soon enough that the X1S seems like a waste for those with some patience.
Hard to say, depends on the games. Used to love Xbox 360, but was very impressed with PS4 this generation.
To quote Queen.. I want it all and I want it now!
