Whoa, easy there tough guy. No need to lash out just because you're too ignorant to understand what I found funny about it.

So, i don't really understand the PS4 Pro. Who is the market for this thing? It seems even more half assed than the Slim.

It's a more powerful version of the most popular console on the market at a slightly higher price point. The market is people without PS4s and people with PS4s who want better graphics.

As for the slim - "First impressions: better than the existing PS4 in almost every way."

While I don't agree with the person that you're quoting's point, I don't think the point you're making here is very strong either. The Xbox One original was 1.32 teraflops and the PS4 original was 1.84 teraflops. That would make the PS4 39% "more powerful" using your logic. I wouldn't say the original PS4 is "much more powerful" than the original Xbox One. Though at that point you're getting into the semantics of what "much more" really means. I think we're in agreement that the original PS4 is more powerful than the original Xbox One and theoretically the Scorpio will be similarly as more powerful than the PS4 Pro.


The only place where much more powerful is accurate, is when you compare the PS4 Pro to the Xbox One S. It's three times more powerful, and only costs $50 more.

I had to pause ny jog to laugh when Cheapy claimed the Xbone S compared favorably on price with the PS4 Pro and Shipwreck said the Scorpio is is much more powerful than it. That is some crazy spin based on the actual facts.

A 1 TB Xbone S is $350, and 1.4 teraflops.

The 1 TB PS4 Pro will be $400, but is 4.2 teraflops.

The Scorpio is supposed to be 6 teraflops, which isn't nearly as big a jump in power as the jump from the Xbone S to the PS4 Pro. But somehow Cheapy thinks MS could charge a $100 or even $200 premium.

Isn't an air conditioned room a better spot for a ping pong table? Especially this summer, which has been brutally hot.
