Man, I'm a fan of Sony, but they have been messing up, lately. I mean, PS+ price hike, PS4 Pro with no 4k Blu-Ray player (even though Xbox One S has it), and now this! Why do companies always start making stupid decisions when they are at the top? (Playstation division).

At best, you'll get 100 dollars in store credit w/ 300 out of pocket. Honestly, you shouldn't upgrade to this pro they're advertising. The changes will not be dramatically different for 300 dollars.

Says the graphics will look sweet, I has a fancy TV so that's why I want to upgrade to the pro. And gamestop sent me an email saying they will accept you're old ps4 and give $125 credit towards the pro. I don't mind the losing out some money for what I originally paid for it, I have stable job.

Honestly, I'm not sure this is that big of an issue when you look at the people it will likely impact directly. I mean, Skyrim's a pretty old game at this point and I'd imagine most people who are that interested in it and the ability to mod it already have it and have had the ability to mod it for a long time now. Not saying that mods are bad, I ran a few simple ones on my PC copy of the game as well, but I just don't think they're as big a draw for console Skyrim players as some people think they are.

That said, I do think this is a pretty big deal if you zoom out a little bit and just look at the story itself. Even for players who don't care about Skyrim and/or mods. this just looks really really bad on Sony. And it only compounds the other recent very public missteps they've made as pointed out by endallchaos above. MS is roasting them on social media right now and, even though I'm generally a Sony fan, they're deserving of every bit of it. Sony is in imminent danger of becoming the anti-gamer, too cool for school kid who got out to the lead in a race but is now laying face down in the dirt watching the others pass them by.

Yet another reason to ignore E3, it's mostly lies.

They really shouldn't have let Bethesda announce it if they knew it was something they were unwilling to allow.

I'm just saying, it's not going to be mind blowing for a 400 dollar machine. In my opinion, if you have a stable job, just save up for a gaming PC if you don't have one already. They're upgrade future proof and you don't need to constantly buy a whole new console every few years. Just the graphics card every like 6 years

It's unfortunate for anyone limited to the Playstation version of the game, but I can't say I'm tremendously surprised. Sony comes off as strangely draconian at times. Maybe it's just Japanese corporations in general, as Nintendo is worse, if anything.

As to the PS4 Pro.. Anyone without a 4k TV isn't likely to get much use out of it, as apparently most games are going to have their framerates locked at 30 or 60 fps to prevent Pro players from having an "advantage" in multiplayer (I'll admit as a PC gamer I find this somewhat amusing).

If you have a 4k TV, the Pro looks like it'll give a pretty good boost in graphical fidelity over the PS4, even if the games aren't running in native 4k. The decision not to include a UHD Blu-Ray drive is a bit of a kick in the balls though, especially since many people can't stream 4k content. My Playstations have always served as a movie player first and gaming console second.

And a new proccessor, remember the good ole days when quad core was all ya needed. Now it's six or even eight core. Oh lets not forget a new hard drives, ssds if you went bleeding edge performance. Oh lets not forget cooling systems and getting the proper tower. And I am not even going to start on the hassle of configuring drivers for some of the hardware out there. Then there is making sure the monitor of your choice is either keeping up with ya graphic card or not outstripping it either .

A gaming pc is nowhere near future proof nor dare I say user friendly compared to the plug and play capability of a console. Not to mention the price point difference. I'd rather spend 500 bucks every four years rather then a couple of thousands every five or less years considering how fast tech is moving these days.

To get back on topic though, this is why Sony is the worse gaming company. They are unwilling to embrace any change.

A quad core is still all you need for today's gaming, quad cores aren't going anywhere anytime soon bud. You don't need SSD's, SSD's are for the more hardcore enthusiasts who like zero load time. Get a 6 TB hard drive, and you're good to go for a long time. Cooling systems consist of your heatsink and your case fans, that's it. Configuring drivers is a lot more simpler than you'd expect. They're actually more user friendly than they were 6-10 years ago. A monitor is a monitor. As long as it's not some older monitor from the early 2000's, you'll be fine.

A gaming PC is very future proof, that's why a lot of people have migrated over there for the past 6 years now. It may not be as something as simple as a plug & play console, but it hardly takes any work to get your PC up and running the way you want it to. And if you can't be bothered w/ learning a few things, then stay on a console for the rest of your life. My uncle didn't have to build a whole new PC for almost 10 years and it was still considered a decent PC.

I wouldn't say they're the worst company at all. They make some questionable decisions, sure, but just take a look at what Microsoft was doing three years ago. We're all human.

Ya never ran a VR capable pc for more then five minutes if you think a fan and heatsink can cut it. Liquid cooled or bust not to mention a liquid cooled set up takes much less space and makes much less noise. Also VR headsets are not the easiest thing to get going driver wise. God knows I made a few costly mistakes getting mine running..Then letting it collect dust after I got bored with.

A gaming pc offers nothing interesting enough to be worth the effort in my mind.

I don't care for Virtual Reality. I was pretty sure we were just talking about regular gaming since a quad core is more than capable for just gaming. Hell, I'm pretty sure it's capable for certain VR's as well. Do you not know what a heatsink is? A heatsink is any cooler you wish to cool down your CPU. A heatsink can either be a liquid or an air cooler. It's not strictly an air cooler. I don't know anything about VR's since I have no interest in them. They are in the early stages, so it's sort of expected for early adopters to experience weird hickups.

Well, that is of course your opinion and you're entitled to it. I however love my gaming PC and will never go back to consoles for third party titles.

Way to shoot yourself in the foot, Sony. I wonder what the exact reason they won't allow it for is?
