I'm not gonna lie, the PS4 Pro is kind of ugly. I'm excited to play me some Uncharted 4 in 4K though!

Nobody really believed it would be $599 especially when we found out the cpu was still going to be a jaguar. $100+ is still a steep margin if there are little noticeable gameplay differences especially when Xbox is falling way behind in the exclusives arena. And you have to be joking with the "4K drive justifies the price difference alone" talking point.. I'd argue that 90% of Xbox owners will never use the drive for the purpose of playing a UHD bluray, and that might be being generous.. it's a nice value add, but it does not justify the price difference.

Let's be real, people who buy a 1X will MOST LIKELY have a 4K TV. I didn't say it justified the price difference, I just said with those additions it wasn't that bad. I already use the UHD Blu-ray and I love it, but apparently I'm the minority. I just think that for $100 more than the Pro, it's a no brainer. Like I said before, if one can spend $399 they can do an additional $100.

*Edit*
You should have seen the IGN community last year, everyone was saying there was no way it was going to be less than $599. That's why I say people are too wishy washy, because I think for $499 people are getting a hell of a deal for a console.

Microsoft is already making outlandish claims like "Sony is paying to keep games on the X1X at parity with the pro" nonsense.. They know that the digital foundry comparisons are going to be even less distinguishable than the PS4 Xbone comparisons of the past several years and it is going to be tough to justify the $100, or greater if Sony drops the price, difference especially with the anemic Xbox library.

$100 more for a console that has better specs and comes with a 4K drive really isn't that bad. Microsoft is already selling the 1X at a loss. If people can spend $399 on a PS4 Pro, they can spend $499. I hate how wishy washy people are, because a year ago when "Project Scorpio" was announced, everyone was saying it wouldn't be less than $599, and now that it's less it's "too expensive."

Well, the price went back up to $399. Everyone who ordered one prepare for cancellations.
