System is so ugly looks like a Big Mac. No UHD Blu Ray only 1TB and games have to play the same on all units so wtf is the point other than 4K up scaled games?

they should have included a 500gig hd instead like they loved to do for so long so I could watch a beautiful meltdown of the internet

That new tweet from Larry promoting the xbox one S was definitely an blow to the Pro.

 

"Want 4k Streaming & Blu-ray + Hdr Gaming?"

I'm not too big on sony but no one has seemed to mention that it has a 4.20 Tflop video card. That should open up double the performance on future games (unless they just dedicate all the extra power to VR which is a possibility).

So how much power does this thing have. Someone in this thread wrote 4.2 teraflops and if that's true then that means the Xbox Scorpio will have a 50% gpu advantage at 6 teraflops at least. If so isn't that almost the same power difference between the ps4 and one right now.

Umm... yeah... I'm not very impressed... 

There's no talk of like guaranteed 60FPS at the very least... 4k is nice but running at 30FPS is a joke...

Also 4k resolution is one thing... what about the settings it's running in? low/med/high/ultra?  we need answers

And lets be honest that neither system has done an amazing job in that category either.  Many more misses than hits on the exclusives front.

What exclusives has the Xone had other than Sunset Overdrive, Horizon 2, Halo 5, and Rare Replay?

ps4 doen't have a 50% gpu advantage now. PS4 is at 1.84 Tflops and xbox one at 1.75 Tflops. 

 

 

Going from 4.2 to 6 tflops is going to be a much more noticeable difference then xbone ps4.

While true, this generation is taking a while to really kick-off, I'm still waiting for a system seller to appear from M$. I sat on buying a 360 until GoW came along and sold me. There is nothing on the table from them that has me even remotely interested. Meanwhile I'm pretty stoked for Horizon Zero Dawn and lukewarm about Days Gone.

No. The 50% advantage the PS4 has is in overall power (CPU, GPU, RAM). The Pro apparently is going with a similar CPU that the current PS4 has, just OC'd and the same amount of RAM (based on the rumored specs). Nobody really knows what the Scorpio will have outside of the advertised 6 teraflops. Assuming Microsoft upgrades more than just the GPU, the difference between it and the Pro will be much more noticeable than the difference between the Xbox One and PS4.

Wow, I was ready to upgrade to the newer model, but Sony actually talked itself out of a sale with today's reveal.

 

I see no actual reason to upgrade, unless I get a 4K TV (which I won't until they start dropping to an acceptable price late next year).

I think both systems ultimately cost the same. The PS4 has a higher up front cost with fewer sales on the console while xbox ones are down to $200 for 1TB almost every week now. The Xbox One software sales are lesser quality usually to make up for it, but BC and GwG gives one 4 free games per month instead of PS Plus' 2 games a month, unless you own another PS system, which that cost should be factored in as well. I think they both equal out on the price front. I think Nintendo prices are on crack though.

This ain't what Playstation supposed to be about. Sound like a bunch of stuck up PC gamers. Sickening.

PS Pro is pitiful. I will probably just stick with my PS4. was thinking about trading in my extra ps4 (downstairs) and upgrading but no chance in hell i'll pay an extra $200/$250 after trade in. Guess i may have have to jump back on the xbox train again ala. 2005 when the scorpio finally launch.

Acceptable price? I've seen 65 inches under a grand with hdr.

Really disappointed about 4k bluray.   I will still probably buy this box but I was hoping it gave me a reason to skip the Xbox One S completely.   Also both the slim and the pro look like shit.

I was ready to preorder this thing but after the reveal im sticking with my original ps4. I dont have a 4k tv and dont plan on getting one anytime soon so this will be pointless for me. plus the design is very lazy, they just slapped 2 ps4 slims together and called it a day.

And I'm waiting for my acceptable price point of ~$500, which should hit in about a year.

I'm still waiting to hear what framerate games will have in 4k. Can't imagine it being more than 30 since it's $400. No uhd blu-ray will force me to get an xbox.

HDR is worthless on those cheap TVs since they don't get bright enough.

That's it?? Scorpio has this things number big time.

Yeah but Scorpio will still be over a year away when the Pro launches. Sony sacrificing the power advantage to be first to market with their "pro" model.

It would have been a day one buy for me if it had the 4K Blu Ray playback capability, I've built up quite the collection instead of buying regular blu ray copies and would like to start watching them. Held off on the Xbox One S because the white aesthetic wouldn't fit for me ... oh well.

So you're buying four PS4 Pro's so your TV gets the message to get with the times?

Well after researching this a bit more it seams it's a decent upgrade at best somewhere between 2 and 3 times more powerful with most of the power difference coming from the gpu. Ehhh I'll probably upgrade this holiday season honestly there would be more to complain about if the price wasn't 399.

I can't believe they put a 1TB in the PRO model when the Xbox One S 2TB has double that and 4K bluray support.

Sony really dropped the ball on this. I even had the money saved up to preorder this but after watching that I was just like "wow".

The console looks terrible to boot.

The Xbox S's premium model has 2TB. Its base model only has 500gb. They said they will announce 2 new models later, so one presumably will have 2TB, considering the PS4 had bundles that went that high. This was actually smart on their part bc announcing too much would take away from that nice price tag of $399. They dont want people reporting its $449 or $499

Look for black this holiday.
