Sega is making a Mega Drive Mini

Why won't Sega just make their own !

This is likely to end up another shoddy device were people might just as well run an emulator.

However if they include Herzog Zwei there might be a few people i know who bite.

@Krychek

I don't disagree with you.

However Rocket League gets a "worst of all" comment because as i said
"Rocket league is a big game because of Sony getting it to PS+"
it's the reason SARPBC is a flop and RL a big hit.

If i want to play Rocket League today and i have the choice between consoles I would choose Xbone or Switch NOT PS4.

Xbox now supports the STEAM version of the game and STEAM users don't need a Xbox account to play it.
It supports Switch players and you don't need an xbox account on switch (or a nintendo account on Xbox for that matter).

As I've always said I understand why Sony wouldn't want to and in my original post said if MS were in their position they would most likely do the same thing.

So i don't say Sony are being Dicks in a Sony Vs Microsoft way.

I just say as gamers and a a decision that affect gamers that we should all agree that Sony are being dicks

(and i reserve the right to agree that in the past, in the future and on other issues Microsoft are dicks)

This is true. All companies are dicks
and i said as much in my post.

But right here right now this isn't a PS4 is better than Xbone thing. it's a simple Fortnite doesn't have cross console support because Sony are dicks.

When Fortnite comes to Switch it will still be Sony on their own being Dicks.

Worst of all if you think about Rocket League you instantly think PS4, Rocket league is a big game because of Sony getting it to PS+.

Yet if i wanted to play today any format except Ps4 is the way to go because it's Sony not playing Ball(i thank you) with cross play

@Hughesy That simply isn't true

all you need for crossplay on switch is a Nintendo account what makes you think PS4 would be any different ?

It is a 100% dick move by Sony.

As i said, sensible business decision, but a total dick move.

PS4... for the players, as long as they are on our ecosystem.

Microsoft.. cross-play for all !! (except PS4 because Sony don't want it)

and it's fine, Sony don't want to allow Microsoft or Nintendo any ground and from a business point of view it makes a lot of sense, If MS were way out in front they wouldn't support it either.

But as gamers we should be moaning at Sony for being dicks.

It's crazy that the PS4 is doing such monster business.

Compared to the previous generation i think Microsoft will be happy with their numbers.. but compared to the PS4 you could be forgiven to buying into the fanboy narrative that they are dead in the water.

I don't own a PS4 pro yet (on a PS4 slim after trading in my launch PS4 in a too good to miss deal in 2016) but i do wonder if i will bite when the price is right. Aside from people like me wanting to upgrade I don't see that they can continue to sell at this rate past the end of this year.

irve77

@kevboard One of the most interesting things in the normal XBone/PS4 face offs is there is the little difference in CPU power so you get the few oddities where there is a CPU bottleneck and the Xbone version runs slightly better.

With XboneX / Ps4pro it's going to be slightly less interesting as the X is just a checklist of every part being better than the Pro.

I think what some will take interest in is where there is close to parity between the two version and people cry foul.

Then you are left with the real interesting comparisons where checker boarding works so effectively you don't see any real world differences

GAME charges people to try PlayStation VR in its shops

irve77

@mega-gazz

Sony have sanctioned this and if they had bothered to market PSVR to people then game wouldn't have the opportunity to make a quick buck.

If you don't agree with game you don't pay them money for this sort of thing.

Playing devils advocate if they have had to use a retail unit that they are then unable to sell as new why should they not charge ?

If it turns out Sony have given them demo units AND permission to charge then that is a bit of a piss take. But again goes back to Sony they should have said no.

I blame Sony

Inside PlayStation 4 Pro: How Sony made the first 4K games console

I think Playstation have a vested interest in pushing PS Now subscriptions

Microsoft have an interest in securing your brand loyalty with Backward compatibility.

We might think that blurs the lines of generations but just look at the Wii fully compatible with Gamecube games and peripherals yet clearly not a gamecube.

I'm still in 2 minds about the Pro. Sony are pushing a console yet not bothering to make any games for it themselves and i find that troubling !

It's all about the games in the end.

Luckily PS-VR already has an advantage in that even with quick throw away games it seems that it will be something impressive, just look at people talking about the Star Wars VR mission.

I might get one in a year ... if they make some games for it and the Pro can provide a smooth output

You know it's crazy, MS really upped their game with the Xbone s and played a blinder including 4K blu-ray. So everything Sony is doing has a little shine taken off it.

As it stands there is certainly no desire to go for this slim model, personally compared to the non-gloss second version of the original I think I prefer the slim it's certainly not a bad looking little black box and power and noise reductions are more than welcome.

I doubt I would recommend it to anyone new to PS4 either, rather spend the extra 90 and go pro.
