The PS4 was Sony striking gold. Now they are just screwing themselves over. Obviously, it was fools gold. They’d been wise not to have made this gen about power and true multiplatform games. Now the antidote has become the poison and the Xbox payback has already begun to mount only to intensify in 2017. We think sony has signed the PlayStation brand death warrant with the PS4 Pro.
Sony is making a big mistake with the PS4 Pro
Xbox One S Sales increased by 111% n Amazon after Sony’s PS4 Pro event in New York recently. It clearly shows that consumers do want 4K optical drive in their console. That’s because many consumers see the console as a center of their home media. Xbox S could be the best-selling console in the foreseeable future.
So Sony owns Blu-ray, but they don’t even have a 4K Blu-ray player in their OWN console? Can’t even argue with that statement. Even their presentation was poor. They should have instead showcased what the console can DO at 1080p, and show off better VR demos.
We should have 4K Blu-ray on the PS4 Pro. Sony is acting unreasonably at this point. Microsoft didn’t hold back on us when it came to 4K Blu-ray. Sony removed it deliberately because they want you to use the Netflix app because they get money when you use the app. This is because Sony did a business deal with Netflix and went with their own scheme to restrict us to use their app for compressed Netflix streaming. The movie data is compressed with really bad picture quality.
On the other hand, Scorpio is native 4k as MS say, Today, to get this on a PC, you need a Titan X which is $900 alone, without ram, HD, CPU, fans etc. If the promise comes true then it’s going to be next gen and not competing with the PS4 Pro. But it will be very expensive and you will need a 4k tv for best results.
