PlayStation 4 Pro: anyone picking it up?

Postby dunkaroo69 » Sat Sep 17, 2016 4:38 pm

I got mine preordered. Just wondering if anyone else is getting one? Yeah, I know it has no 4K bluray drive, but all my 4K movies are streamed online anyway, so no big deal. I just want to play Uncharted 4 maxed out :D

No 4K TV - yet so no plans on getting a PS4 pro at the moment.

However, with the PS4 slim removing the optical port and I have an Astro A50 gaming headset... If/When my current PS4 dies, I will have no choice but to buy a PS4 pro.

No plans to pick up a ps4 pro not only do I not own a 4k TV but I have not really played much at all on my ps4 since getting a gaming pc and similar to pyro I have astros a40's tho so should I decide to get rid of my ps4 because I don't really play it much at the moment and in future I decide I want to come back I would have the same issue and would have to pick up a pro for the digital optical port if nothing else

Just to clarify, the Pro will support 1080p as well as 4K. So those who haven't made the jump to 4K yet will still get a huge graphic boost.

I game a lot on my PC, and can game very comfortably at ultra graphics and well over 60fps, but 4K can be a problem. Division looks amazing at 4k, but in some intense battles I dip below 30fps. Scale the resolution back a bit and I'm always over 60 fps. Also, and this is a big one, as great as my PC is, I can't share all my games with my son on PC like I can on console. Me and my son enjoy the same games and when you want games like Battlefield 1 or Watchdogs 2, or even Overwatch, you can't share them. The only way my son can play it is if I buy him a separate copy. As cheap as PC games are, buying two is just rediculous so I might as well buy one copy on console and not have to worry about game sharing.

I have no plans on getting the Pro. Nothing about it really makes me want it. I don't even have plans to get the "Scorpio", or whatever it will be called from Xbox when it comes out. I am considering getting one of the Xbox One slim bundles, though, and selling my PC. Still up in the air on that one. :D

I'm getting one but only because my PS4 has started sounding like a jet taking off and there seems to be a poltergeist who keeps pushing the eject button. I might as well dump it on Gamestop while it's still on life support.

I picked one up and don't regret it. The fact it runs on a faster wifi channel was enough for me.
