Hell no, if this comes out in 3 years then I'm ok with it because it'll just be a PS5, but if it comes out in like 1 year then I won't shell out 400$ for something I don't need aka 4K or slightly upgraded graphics.
I can confirm this rumor is true. My friends dad is a gamedev at Sony Japan studios and they got a small look at the PS4 SLim or whatever you want to call it. It's not a lot of more difference, but there are some power leaps and the devide itself is a bit smaller. It's far from done and won't be at E3 this year though.
Oh god this shit is stupid...what are you thinking MS and now Sony? I'm sure Nintendo is planning the same shit. Thanks a lot fucking Apple. Your stupid incremental bullshit has infested the console space.
Don't know what to think of this. On one hand, if the transition is smooth (i.e. all current games work on PS4K and even benefit from the spec bump) and there might be some trade-in program, then perhaps, but I don't appreciate the fact that this will segment of the market by pushing out users who are not able to upgrade.
Sooo, now you have to upgrade your ps4 (or buy another one) to play psvr? I don't see how a usb external graphic card would be benefical. The only realistic option is an all new ps4 but if that the case, I will cancel my psvr preorder to go with Oculus or Vive.
I hope it's bullshit.
Well, Nintendo's 2DS and n3DS didn't bring any hatred, did they? If all the games will be still playable - who would REALLY care?
Just consider it as a more expensive SKU, that is able to output 4K. Marketing can go with "console for ones with huge TVs", claiming that all those FullHD (and HDReady and other old sets) TVs are ok with the old version.
With 40 million of consoles out there I'm sure devs would be able to include invisible options switch for graphics. Also, would allow to bring better VR games for those who's interested (limited to new console, but hey, Xenoblade on n3DS?)
Good move, 5-6 year wait for new hardware is just non sense. When you can produce cheap capable hardware like PS4 that can practically be developed with incremental upgrades and maintain software compatibility, there is no reason not to make a better one every 3 years or so. Yeah, 'children' will complain but they will get over it.
