2016 machines go head to head.
if you want games on the highest quality PS4Pro obviously if you want a cheap UHD BR player the XBone1S
Uhd bd will be enabled by fw update in the future. So pro for me, because I'm pro games. X1s for gears 4, Ps4 for the rest..
xbox is useless if you own a pc. gears 4 comes to pc to
Ppl don't realize that Pro will likely receive a firmware update to allow the use of UHD discs. Just like how the vanilla PS4 received an hdr firmware update. It's entirely possible, and probable.
i agree, but i'm thinking console gamers.
I actually did some research on that one as I thought the same.. ps4 simply can not do HDR with a HDMI 1.4 output.. However it seems 1.4 and 2.0 is compatible, as in identical physical port.. provided the controller is capable, you can upgrade to 2.0 thru firmware. The same is not true of uhd br that I'm aware of
@Doctor_MG The ports they used were certified for HDMI 1.4 that does not mean they are not higher bandwidth ports. When the PS4 was released they couldn't have the ports labeled as 2.0 because the spec for 2.0 was not finalized yet.
Netflix and other 4K streaming apps require HDCP 2.2 which cannot be added via updates even if the PS4 could theoretically support 4K at a higher refresh rate than 30Hz.
PS4 Slim deserves some love
Pro all the way, Xbone s will have all its games on PC + its weak.
The majority of console gamers will not build a gaming rig so why even bring PC into it?
Well I'm speaking for those who can + The majority favours PS so?
@ Xavy...The majority of those who can? Most console gamers "can" build a gaming rig...But don't. Again, console gamers overall do not and will not game on PC. Some, of course but not many to make a huge difference. Bringing that into the equation makes no sense. Then saying "they" favor the PS? Who are "they" and how many of "them" are there? I ask this because most die hard PC gamers will not even touch a console.
I'm not going to even dare enter into a squabble about Ps4 Pro v Xbox s/Scorpio as i will inevitably buy all of them to sate my gaming appetite, but that doesn't leave me any less furious at the pipsqueak who decided not to add a uhd blu ray to the Pro. I have shelled out a small kings ransom on my 4k tv's and was pinning my hopes on a Ps4 uhd blu ray player, in the end because of Sony's inane decision i bought an xbox slim solely for this purpose.
It was such a stupid decision to not include it. They had to have forseen that there would be significant backlash about it yet they made the hard call anyway. It was so stupid. They lost a lot of potential sales because of it That said: they are right about the decline of disc-based movie buying/watching. And UHD bluray movies are around $30-$40 each from what little I've seen in stores making them even less appealing. BUT acting as though 4k streaming services are just as good is just plain ignorant. There's a big difference in quality between those disc and streaming and you'd need a great connection/speed to even take advantage of what's available to begin with. It was just so stupid.
i'm thinking of getting one so i can play some rounds in BF1 with some old friends i left when i moved to pc some years ago. if only it supported 144hz & G- SYNC it would be even better. i will buy the PC copy later on if i i'm still going on with this plan by the time the pro is released
PS4 Neo doesn't exist. If you can't do research to get something like that right, your opinion piece is not worth reading.
Since Microsoft has no games that interest me the decision is easy for me.
The best option is the xbox one s, I understand that the scorpio comes out in a year, but why spend money building a ps library and then spend money on a xbox one. For that I prefer to buy all my games for xbox so when the scorpio arrives I can play all my games on native 4k.
My main purpose to buy a gaming console is gaming so PS4 Pro is the obvious answer. Xbox games can be played on PC so no need to invest in that.
.....The one you want??
Don't be silly, you have to buy the one that some idiot on the internet tells you to buy :)
Oh my bad! Jeeze, I really gotta learn the rules around here! Thanks for setting me straight ;)
You aren't allowed to have freedom of choice as people will tell you that what you want is the wrong choice
Neither...wait for the Scorpio.
Well one actually produces critically acclaimed games and well the other hasent produced a critically acclaimed game since what halo 3?
PS4 PRO. Anyone with intelligence will always go for the sony console. U can play almost everything on xbox on a PC.
How about you buy PS4 Pro and save up and buy Xbox Scorpio or build a PC, haha same difference.
Shouldn't it be 'xbone s vs PS4 Slim' not Neo? Ah but of course the s is the only thing MS have to compete with the Pro for the next year. Oh dear. Massacre incoming...
First of all its not the Neo, its the Pro.. and second..no one is going to convince me to buy something other than myself.
