  1. Dear PlayStation,

    When are you making us have the ability to change out gamertags like Xbox?

    From a weird Xbox fanboy, Nasif.

  2. Also, you guys remembered PlayStation's E3 2016 conference. That conference was very epic with musicians and it just felt like a movie instead of people talking all day. This conference was the opposite of fun and music. PlayStation might have to be careful of Xbox and PC in 2017 because some PlayStation fans are possibly moving to PC and Xbox. I'm not a hater of PlayStation, but they need to be more fun and innovative with things like a Blu-ray player.

  3. This conference overall just felt dead and boring. Almost no one really wanted to hear Mark Cerny's boring voice for a long time. Also, the PS4 Pro is good and all, but no one cheered loudly when it was announced and no one even cared about PS VR and HDR. When the Xbox One S was announced, people felt very excited and Xbox at least didn't had boring people and didn't talked about it all day. I could talk more about how this PlayStation conference was very bad, but we already know that Sony need to do better next time.

  4. i dont have a ps4 yet. I only have a 720p tv. is the pro still compatible with 720p tv's and is it a good idea to get it with a 720p tv?

  5. Can Sony Declare & confirm Patented PS4 Pro can really run 8.4 TFLOP !!! Better than Xbox scorpio 6 teraflops GPU? True or False Hope?

    Please make it even better.

  7. The problem with the PS4 Pro, ultimately, if we be real about it… all things considered, and relatively speaking, the PS4 Pro is actually underpowered! 3 Years after the release of the older standard PS4, and this is what Sony gives us? The PS4 Pro was meant to be a notable upgrade, or more to the point should have been a notable upgrade, but all Sony gave us was an incompetent minor tweak here-&-there; not good enough if we be honest! The Microsoft Scorpio is more like what we need, but Sony just threw us some crumbs!

    Sony had a chance to beef-up the CPU, which is known for strangling the output, but Sony took no action to rectify the situation! Quite stupid really, Sony gave us a token-gesture rusty coin Lol, what amounts to a minor tweak to the overall spec, which quite frankly denotes incompetence and deplorable pennypinching on Sony's part. Note the power of the GPU and CPU. Let’s look at the GPU first. Sony is claiming a 4.2 TFLOP GPU, and while they don’t call out the clocks of the CPU, we can safely assume that it’s merely an overclocked version of the current PS4 CPU. However, don’t expect PC-level clocks here. I fully expect a 2.0-2.1 GHz clock speed – a woefully underpowered CPU.

    As a brief aside, recall that Microsoft explicitly called out that Scorpio will have 6 TFLOPs of GPU power. Yes, it’s not releasing until next year, but that does not change the fact that the PS4 Pro is objectively underpowered compared to its competition.

    Remember, Sony touted 4K throughout the entirety of the conference. However, here is some harsh truth for you all. A 4.2 TFLOP GPU paired with a 2.1 GHz CPU is simply not enough to game in 4K at 60 frames per second – an acceptable framerate one expects from a so-called “next gen” console. In other words, simply doubling the GPU power and slightly overclocked a severely underpowered CPU is simply not enough to output 4 times the pixels at double the framerate.

    The GTX 980 – a two year old GPU – is rated at 4.9 TFLOPs. That GPU cannot output modern games at native 4K with acceptable framerate – and that’s when it’s paired with an i7 3770k, an extremely popular and powerful CPU. I know this because I had a PC with these exact specs. A GTX 980 and an i7 3770k is power consoles will never have, and that power simply wasn’t enough for 4K gaming at acceptable framerate. How the hell does Sony think they can achieve 4K gaming with objectively worse hardware?

    30 Frames Per Second
    For all the chest thumping Sony did regarding 4K gaming, they barely – if ever – mentioned gaming in higher framerates. In their blog post, they state, “All games will run in 1080p resolution, and some will even run in a higher or more stable framerate.” It must be called out that this blog was published well after the actual conference itself, meaning the blog post did not command the same audience and attention at the conference itself…meaning perhaps not as many consumers were privy to this information.

    All of the demos shown, barring Call of Duty, were running in the same unacceptable 30 frames per second (fps). Let’s get this out of the way – 30fps is shit. A game at 30fps is objectively worse than the same game at 60fps. Framerate directly impacts gameplay. If you think otherwise, you’re simply wrong.

    Instead of pushing for better graphics and better framerates at 1080p – a resolution the PS4 and Xbox One fail to hit game after game – Sony is hell bent on chasing 4K, that too, upscaled 4K. We have just discussed above how 4K is an entirely unrealistic goal for the Pro. The hardware simply isn’t good enough. We can objectively measure this.

    Sony seems content with utterly subpar and unacceptable 30fps gaming.

    Underpowered Trash
    This merely enforces a fundamental problem with consoles – compromise. They can either do graphics, or resolution, or framerate. Most of the time, they can’t do any of those three.

    The PS4 Pro is simply more of the same. Instead of shaping the future, Sony is dredging up past hardware and then attaching an anchor to them, slowing down the industry and forcing compromise.

    Sony isn’t offering anything new. Absolutely nothing showcased was new, nor was it innovative.

    Everything Sony touted on stage – everything they touted – is possible and better on PC.

    Sony claims that the PS4 Pro is for gamers who want to be at the “forefront of innovation.” If they truly believed that, they’d tell you to forget consoles.

    Forget these underpowered pieces of trash that charge you to play a game you already paid for. Forget these underpowered pieces of trash whose online services consistently go down. Forget these underpowered pieces of trash that can’t even game in modern resolutions and framerates.

    I hope the gamers will not reward Sony for this debacle. Sony doesn't deserve my money. I'm sick-&-tired of these drip-drip-drip upgrades, which barely qualify as an upgrade!

  8. HDR, is not new… HDR is a rendering technique and is NOT dependent on the TV.. Do not let them lie to you..

  9. Shut the fucking fuck up you slow speaking nerdy loser. I would punch you right in your stupid face if I could. Why is noone throwing stones at him? Are they all sedated or what? HELL!

  10. Most boring presentation ever. They pay those dickheads to bore us to death. What a waste of money!

  11. Correct be wise young men..think of your future as young man..Invest first patience will allow you to have more money..In case your car/truck breaks down..video game developers/makers have not yet found a way to develop 4k games for PS4 Pro, [Yoda words of my own] yoda never said these wise words.
