Just give me Battlefield 1 in 1080p, 60fps and I'll buy a Neo day 1 Sony. Its the game I need on Neo more than any other

Interesting. So not out this year then?
Neo Dev kits have been out there since or before April. I just assume (and will continue to assume unless a dev comes in and corrects me as they'd undoubtedly know better) finalized to mean basically the retail version of the console in dev kit mode.

Not really.

Just got a new LG OLED over the weekend, and the 4K from my Roku 4 was pretty glorious. Also watched the 4k Judo on DirecTV that also looked amazing.

It's early, sure. But not pointless.

Sky TV are going to be showing 126 live EPL games this season in Ultra HD, which i assume is the same as 4K?

That alone is making me want to upgrade my current TV, never mind these fancy new consoles :)

I'm pretty sure he's talking software units, in which case every one has sold at least 2m.

Edit: It's absolutely fan fiction but imagine if PS3 BC was incorporated into this? I think I'd shit myself. I'd finally manage to finish the Yakuza series!
If Sony wants this PS4K to be a premium PS product, then having PS3 BC would absolutely validate that claim.

I'm excited for what we might not know. Be that a feature or something else.

I'm sure I read a post in one of the many Neo threads there was a feature of Neo that hasn't leaked yet. Anyone else remember? (sorry, it is a bit vague)

That was sneakers. I sent you those remember?

The PS2 was the less powerful console among the 6th generation ones... and yet it gave us games like God of War 2 and SOTC and Okami and FFXII and MGS3.

Plus you really compare the Wii U which is basically ( almost ) last gen console to the PS4 and XboxOne?
Yea because that proves my point even more that power doesn't matter all that much. Wiiu is a generation behind PS4/X1 and yet has some of the most highly rated titles exclusive to it this generation.

Also, PS4 being more powerful IMO just added to the console being "better" when comparing. It's more powerful, it's cheaper, Sony is all about the games etc...I've never been to anyone's house and saw some X1 game running thinking "hey, my PS4 runs stuff better than that!" The difference in power was fairly negllible to me, it was the narritive of being more powerful that held weight.

As much I want that to happen it would completely invalidates PSNow and they'll need to give something back to people who are subscribed to the service.

I feel like they have to change the look just so to create a noticeable physical differentiation between the models. Or at least change the base color like MS did with the S. I think they should just totally change it up though, get rid of the sharp angles.

Sony didn't "win" because they had the more powerful console. They were cheaper and MS fumbled the entire reveal of their console. That gave Sony the footing. Stuff like slightly more power was icing on the cake.

Neo has the advantage of going first, Price is the big factor here but they are trying to get people in their ecosystem. OG model will no doubt see a price drop with Neo launches. PS4 imo will continue to sell fine regardless of Scorpio.

Both MS and Sony are tying to lock people into their ecosystems instead of taking the big game of a new gen launch and losing all those people.

Exactly.

PlayStation is PlayStation, and they will sell very well, regardless of the Scorpio.

On the other side, MS is trying to win back the hardcore audience and releasing a stronger box next year is a good starting point.

I can't wait to hear more about both new console offerings.

usb ports in the back.

i'd prefer they drop the sharp angles. especially in the back. no sure what the function of that is as all it does for me is make it harder to see the plugs.

just make it the ps2 slim actually :D

don't let whomever did the third ps3 on it though. those were fucking awful.

Yeah, that's not happening since cell has been abandoned so no node shrink. Nor does Sony give a damn about BC as can be witness of its "awesome" support for it on PS4 with lack of PS1 games and forcing people to rebuy PS2 classics.

Honestly they should just keep the PS4 design but have it not skewed.


Kinda like PSVR's breakout box.

I'm hoping that it's hardware accelerated lighting engines or something like that.

I haven't really been keeping up with this thread, is it still rumored that they're going to announce a slimmer PS4 alongside the Neo?

Because, in my opinion, that not only devalues the Neo, but also clutters the market in the same holiday that they're launching PSVR. I say cut the price of the existing PS4 as much as they can and just skip a "slim" model altogether. I would also like to see the Neo launch with a new and improved DualShock 4. I think that's definitely something that should happen and they'd be missing a huge opportunity if they didn't.

So if I can only pick one which one should I get GAF:

PS4 Neo

or

PSVR

?

Neo.

PSVR got no killer software..unless you consider re7 and GTS support to be a deciding factor. Honestly, wait 6 months to a year to let the library grow. Cause you gonna be that one guy on Gaf writing a thread about "PSVR got no games" or "games are too simple"

Neo was the slim revision with more power as side effect.

Good point good point. Though I do believe PSVR has a good expected launch line up

would be super awesome way to steal ms scorpio thunder

Scorpio's thunder was lost when they announced the S launching in a matter of two months.

It's not the same as launching a slim model and then a minor bump successor the same time. This is full on Apple strategy with the PS4 and the PS4+ basically
