Thursday Chat: September 8



The PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro were finally announced last night and while we're excited, we're also a little confused. Why is there no 4K Blu-Ray drive? The system supports 4K out, so could Sony possibly update it via a firmware upgrade in the future? If not then we imagine the reason is simply to keep costs down and focus on gaming, which makes sense we suppose since it is a gaming machine after all.

So what do you think of the announcements from Sony last night?

Let's Chat!

I believe there is 4K Blu Ray drive in the Pro, but will come later in an update, like 3D was not available from launch with the original PS4.

I would preorder now as no need to pay anything until Nov, if not enough funds then cancel, it may either go out of stock or price may increase.

@toots - they were very vague about it tbh. Digital foundry will probably take it apart later today - but basically it looks like they are increasing textures and adding HDR and basically boosting it form 'high' to 'ultra' in terms of different graphic options. Obv they are pushing the 60fps but this wasn't mentioned last night but games like rise of the Tomb raider is 1080/60 based on what people saw/were told.

There keeping the multiplayer games looking same as ps4 aswell so there isn't a advantage what a load of crap why would you pay that extra money if your multiplayer games arnt any better

where did you read that? graphically they will be better, ov framerate wise they will have to be similar to not give an advantage

Id only be bitter if id backed Playstation as my place to game. As someone who opted to stick my xbox I will be rewarded with a far superior machine next year. Good things comes to those who wait my friend. A .5 upgrade or sorry a .3 upgrade comes to those in a rush in Novemeber. Talk about taking your fans for a ride

Thurday releases are usually sent on Monday/Tuesday I think - as long as they are in stock. I usually get my orders on Tuesday/Wed from shopto
