View Full Version : New PS4 PRO 10th Nov release

8th September 2016, 11:30 AM
I got a email today with the specs of the PS4 pro, pretty unspecific truth be told.
Release price is on par with what the PS4 cost when it was first released AUS $559 - the Pro below.

Also two PS4 slims being released, a 500gb & 1tb models....I was wondering why the sudden price drop on the current models, now I know why- Slim below

Since I'm here, I'll mention that this doesn't support 4K blu-Ray disc playback.

In my opinion, pretty disappointing. They're releasing an incomplete machine now versus the newer Xbox refresh.

Sony's response when questioned about the PS4 PRO's NONE 4k disc playback ability was that 'In it's findings, most of it's customers prefer to download 4k content'.....what a load of BS, the file sizes are over the top and would fill a PS4's HD in no time flat.

The fact is, that few potential PS4 customers will be buying 4k disc's anyway [even I'm not interested, and I'm a self confessed Techhead ], so they know there is little point installing a 4k disc playback mechanism in what is predominantly a gaming machine.
The Whole reason for the PS4 Pro is so the Sony's VR doesn't fall flat on it's face come launch day.....it will if used with current spec'd PS4's

Besides, there is such a fudging of 4k spec's by different manufacturers [most are just upscaling Bluray spec's], only 2 of Sony's top of the range projectors actually do full Native 4k, there is nothing else on the market, buy any manufacturer that does
