Unparalleled experience for 4K owners and HDTV owners

-1TB hard drive

-"A number of mechanisms" to transfer your library

-Existing games will play as you're accustomed to on PS4 Pro

-Boosting the clock rate to achieve better frame rates

-Can reach resolutions not thought possible on a console in 2016

-Not intended to blur the line between gens

-Takes advantage of some of AMD Polaris

-More than doubled power of GPU

I'll say this here as I said in the other thread:

Regarding the PS4 Pro:

Sony fcuked up. They should have delayed and released the Pro next year so as to go toe to toe with MS. By the time Scorpio launches, the Pro will seem incredibly underpowered in comparison.

Sony have just handed over the next phase of the console phase to Microsoft, and are right back to where they were with the PS3 after they had enjoyed immense success with PS2.

And no, Nintendo don't count. That company hasn't been relevant for over a decade.

In Apple vernacular, it is the iPhone Plus - and that's fine with me. Not a next-gen console just a spec boost for those that want it.

Very reasonably priced. Although it might be able to produce 4K I wonder if that can really be hit with brand new triple A games? I personally will be happy with 1080p 60fps in all games.

You mean the decade in which Nintendo spent most of the time as company behind the best selling home console? That decade? Yeah, totally not relevant to the industry they dominated.

Anyway.

You're wrong about the next MS console, its going to be ridiculously expensive, wouldn't be surprised if it ended up selling less than the Wii U.

Hang on, wasn't the whole point of that dire presentation to promote 4K? And isn't that the point of Pro?

Nope... The Scorpio is going to see MS rise up out of the ashes like a Phoenix. The Scorpio is going to be the equivalent of the XBox 360 when MS ruled the market...

And no, Nintendo doesn't count. The NX has failure written all over it!

Why do you need an individual thread for each chuffin price?

:? . We don't know *anything* about NX. What are you basing your "failure" assessment on?

I wouldn't be surprised if the NX sold even less than the Wii U.

Two different consoles, a single thread to discuss both will inevitably lead to confusion.

That seems... too dumb to actually be true.

I'll need a second confirmation.

That's a bit pants.

The only medium that can actually deliver full uncompressed 4KHD content is BluRay. Nothing else has the necessary data bandwidth. NOTHING.

Maybe there's a Pro version of the Pro in the pipeline. The PS4 BluPro, The PS4 Pro+, The UltraPro, The PS4 ProUltarltrarator etc.
