What are your overall thoughts on Sony's 2016 Playstation Meeting they had this afternoon?

Personally, the PS4 Pro still begs a lot of questions for me regarding how truly powerful it is for only $400.00 and only $100.00 more than the PS4 Slim.

LMAO

Nobody wants a PS4, what game actually deserves my Interest? Next Gen? Nah just an excuse to sell a game for 80$

Now they are testing the waters to see if people are stupid enough to buy it again, or actually consider getting one as the older games are now dropping in price.

Just my 2 cents, my PS vita has more enjoyment value than a pS4, and new games are under 40$ and that's hours of game play we're talking about.

So tell me, making the same cookie cutter game play with stunning eye candy, how long before people just flat out stop buying into it? Probably never right? How boring and repetitive it really is, I don't care how good looking it is.

The only reason I would personally buy one is because of the new God of War coming out, but then I forget that it's 90$ oh never mind. A fucking game costs 1/3 of the console, da fuq is wrong with people? And you wonder why people make free to play micro transaction games, it's a joke.

I'm a pretty dedicated Sony console fan at this point given that I quite enjoy both my PS4 and my Vita, but I have pretty much no real interest in the Pro. As someone who doesn't own a 4KTV and don't see myself owning one any time soon, and with no promises that the Pro will even improve the performance of existing PS4 games, there's just nothing there for me. If I was going to spend $400 on a gaming upgrade at this point I'd be putting it towards a PC upgrade.

I used to be a dedicated Sony fan but then i got my IP banned and they refused to unban me even through i have no clue why they ban my IP. Refuse to tell me what i did wrong, asking my ISP to change my IP which involve having to get a new modem because my IP is basically locked to the modem. Stopped buying PSN+ after that. I still have no clue why they ban it. I wasn't even doing anything shady, they just banned my IP one day after i finished playing dark souls 3. After that experience, any hype i had for a new ps4 slim just evaporated.

No more product. After Persona 5, i will probably just go full time PC player.

Well it was a simple presentation of the new consoles in PS4 Family. No new announcements as rumors said no PS Vita successor or anything. Just PS4 this PS4 that. Pro here Pro there.

The bad thing the new PS4(S) replacement for the current ones looks sooooo cheap!

Overall a compact presentation to showcase the new iteration of PS4 in roughly 1h presentation.

Could use a VPN service that changes your ip to somewhere else.



Also since I have the Destiny bundle PS4 I don't think I will rebuy the PS4 again. Unless they seriously update the hardware above current specs

It went from 1.84 TFLOPS with the original to 4.20 with the Pro. For comparison a single GTX-980 reference is 4.61 TFLOPS.

Real world, it really depends a lot on the developers. If you are in the market for a new console, it might be worth it otherwise i can't see it just for a modest performance boost. That might change when games start coming out that are designed to take advantage of it.

No i wouldnt buy that console at all not even the slim.

Its fine and all powerwise IF they are targetting 1440p 4K on a console like that especially at 60FPS... No its not going to happen not with 4 TFlops they can use all there techniques and there checkerboard upscaling in the end its not true 4K.

I will say its not impossible to get 4K out of this but just dont expect much out of it its best they stick with there checkerboard upscaling because native 4K is far to taxing.

The new slim does not look that appealing its design looks strange what was wrong with the previous PS4? They should had stuck to the original design and do some internal changes like shrink some stuff etc.

I was going to get a PS4 later this year but eh not that much of a Sony guy last gen i was happy with Killzone 3 and Twisted Metal to name a few.

No 4K bluray player this out to disappoint some people me personally i watch my content on PC a game console will not replace that.

Also the new slim no Optical.. i was displeased about this but that is just me.

If you own a PS4 and your interested in the PS4 Pro i honestly would say.... DONT BUY IT.. just stay with your current PS4 its really not that big of a deal you will also be getting HDR10 support on a update you can get more out of your PS4 by getting a HDR10 ready Television.

Honestly its a ... Ok optional upgrade but not something i would recommend but if you want it than go for it.

PS4 slim No just dont your fine with the one you may already have.
