4K Blu ray was the only think I was looking forward to with the Pro. No sale.

Now to wait for the announcement of the Xbox Scorpio.

After Sony announced it, Microsoft responded back with the Xbox One S, which does support 4K Blu-Ray, 4K Streaming, and HDR.

It's a shame Crash Bandicoot Remastered isn't coming to the Xbox One. Just means it will be a LONG time before I can ever play it.

I've been planing for a while now to upgrade my setup (I'm still using a CRT TV with a VCR/DVD combo player.) for a while now. Now it looks like it's in my best interest to wait a year and see where the market is going.

As a PC gamer laughted after saw how terrible the games look compared to a powerfulpc. If you want true 4k gaming then buy a poweful pc. That the only way to play 4k max settings. Sony is trying to sell ps4 pro as a 4k console to those who dont know about pc's. Even my pc that has 5 years old cpu and ram and a GTX 970 G1 GAMING destroy ps4 pro as on max settings 1440p evry game looks much better on it than on ps4 pro that is not pro at all. Dont let sony fool you. 2 days ago a very good friend fo mine who was a console gamer until now bought his first gaming pc(i5 6600k GTX 1070 MSI ARMOR 16 GB DDR 4 3200 MHZ). We talked today and he told me how impresed he is by how smooth the games run and how awesome they look compared to the consoles that i was playing on all these years He said that he regreted that he didnt buy gaming pc's earlier. He gave 2.000 euros for it but it was worth it. I was the one who helped him come to pc as i choosed the pc parts after he told me that he wants to buy a 2.000 euros pc.

Again WARNINGl WARNING: DONT LISTEN TO SONY LIES! A 400 euros machine is not a 4k gaming machine! Buy a monster pc instead of ps4 pro

Is this a computer, or a bottle of coke? Cause that CPU is bottle neckin bad!

Nice graphics card. Did you tell your sister you took it out of her N64?

I've seen more RAM in a zoo that doesn't have any rams.

I laugh at things like this because apparently people dont understand you're always having to upgrade your PC as well.

You have to upgrade it evry 3+ years to run games at max settings. But i havent change cpu ram and motherboard since 2011 . In 2014 i changed graphics card and 3 months ago monitor. It is only the graphics card that need to be upgraded about 3 years in order to continue playing at max settings but here sony is releasing a console that is inferior compared to powerful pc's but they are trying fool people into thinkinf that this 400 euro console will play games at 4k with good graphics. When you need a 2.000+ euros pc for 4k max settings close to 60 fps.

It is not bottleck at all if you overclock it at 4.6 ghz that is what will do tommorow. I bought a powerful cpu cooler today and tomorow my foot technician will install it on my pc and then i will overclock the cpu to 4.6 to eliminate bottleneck. Yes you can put up to 32 gh ram if you want but games dont need more than 12 gb for now.

My buddy has 128 gigs of RAM in his. It's pretty crazy.

You only need that much ram if you were doing some photo or video editing.

He's doing the latter. My new rig is starting to choke with a 2 1/2 hour timeline in Premiere... going to see if 16 gigs will make the difference today.
