Great price but waiting to see how Scorpio compares in the flesh
It's a games console,not a stripper
To be fair, Scorpio does sound like a stripper name. :-)

I'm tempted to sell my old basic white PS4 (500GB) and get one of these instead of a 4K Blu ray player - which are atrociously priced at like £200! WTF?!
Even Netflix and Youtube in 4K doesn't seem to be as magnificent as what a 4K Blu ray is going to be.
I remember iPlayer once did a 4K trial of a 15 minute Planet Earth clip, and my god it was stunning. So now that I know what it could be like, I'm tempted :p
Wrong console, the PS4 Pro doesn't play 4K Blu Ray, only the Xbox One S does, but apparently not that good at it, but it's cheap plus What Hi Fi are a bunch of tools anyway >https://www.whathifi.com/news/no-xbox-one-s-isnt-very-good-4k-blu-ray-player

The review there is dated 29th September 2016. Since then Microsoft have updated things, and it can now pass through HD audio etc.

Have to say Planet Earth 4K UHD Blurays look godly in HDR on an OLED.

Since I own a PC, the Scorpio will need to have exclusives as good as the PS4 platform, the Xbox One simply doesn't offer this, I'm doubting the Scorpio will have any exclusives that will make it worthwhile since I have a PC and PS4.

Is ps4 poo a worwhile upgade over the regular?


I think so even if you have a 1080p TV. Some game give better graphics and framerate. Like Dark Souls 3 on Pro now targets 60fps compared to 30fps on normal. Battleborne and No man's sky now support 60fps pretty much rock solid on the pro compared to 30fps on the normal ps4. Final fantasy, Tomb raider also have options that offer better graphics or fps on the pro. All future titles will have a ps4 Pro feature.

Yes, a 4K tv would be an advantage to have but not essential. A lot of stuff that is pro enhanced has 1080p improvements, there's also boost mode which helps improve games. Finally it also improves PSVR if you have it or considering getting


Just a quick question do you have a ps4 pro and 4k t.v.?

I've upgraded to a 55" 4k tv. But the upscale is pretty great. I'm just unsure if having a pro would be a noticeable difference or not.

I've checked YouTube videos but with their compressions I just can't make a clear difference without looking for the detail.

Would be nice hearing what others think if they've experienced both.

do 4k tvs have multiple 4k inputs?

Yes but some TV's will only support HDR on some of the HDMI inputs. My Samsung 4k TV only supports HDR on HDMI1...so best to check yours

This game has been proper flushed down the khazi with a generous amount of Andrex washlets by many critics, none more so than by my favourite outlet Games TM, but I've found it great fun and it don't matter if you go co-op or even single player it's kept me busy nigh on every night for a good couple of weeks now.
If you not got it yet then yeah perhaps it's worth waiting till it drops to this sort of price but I got no regrets paying the 30 quid plus I did for it, I've put 30 hours plus in already and not even really touched the sides as it's huge!
Agree.
Really enjoying it, has me hooked.

I got it last week
It's not very good in my opinion
I heard it was ok
got it yesterday and while not great its not as bad as people make out, its really more farcry than ghost recon
Ah cool, I like the Far Cry games so I'll probably enjoy this
I love far cry
It's not far cry
It's love far cry =P
It's like a very bad version of crackdown with no superpowers and terrible controls
agree on the controls, did have my car go over a cliff and the car reach the bottom and tumbled back on its wheels and everyone was OK!

but at the end of the day one man's trash is another man's treasure. not that im saying its a treasure but its good we don't all have the same tastes what a boring world it would be.


Yeah where the fun in conformity =P

This item is now back at £329.99 at Very. Not sure is the OP's price was meant to be inclusive of a voucher, but currently this is the base price (will stack with any other vouchers you might have from Very). Add £3.99 for shipping. Also 12 months BNPL should be available to most people.
This item is now showing as £349.99 for the Playstation 4 Pro Console with Horizon Zero Dawn & the code KXVLE is for first credit orders.
Never had an issue with Very.

Would not class them as scammers had plenty items from them over 3 years and no issues. Have heat! <3

my ps4pro arrived however i cant find my now tv pas, also my recipt is only for..... iirc around £332 but i paid £350
has anyone had similar?
thanks

Despite the heat this post received you are the only one who actually confirmed ordering! Can only think to suggest contacting Game - maybe they emailed the NowTV pass details? Maybe they refunded £18 'cos they don't have any passes!? I do not know sorry. :(

Well worth getting the Pro to fully unleash the power of PSVR
Really? all my pals that go the psvr have since sold it, was looking forward to psvr myself but couldn't afford it after having to buy a new ps4 as my older model broke.
Think id rather keep the slim and put the cash towards a scorpio tbh.

Yes really, as others have pointed out VR is improved with the Pro, I certainly see a difference in a number of games

PSA: those trophies you spent ages getting on this game when it came out won't carry over to the GOTY edition, it has a separate set of identical trophies so you will have to get them all again. Also, save games don't transfer either

The best retail PSVR game? Resident Evil 7 in my opinion.
Just fixed that for you ;)
Yes, that's awesome. :D
But it made me feel really, really sick. All the games were you are walking do for the PSVR. I like the ones were your body is stationary and you just look around with the headset.
You tried Gunjack, good arcade shooter where you just look around and shoot,
I haven't.
I tried the one that comes with the VR Worlds game (where you walk as well) and that was a stomach churning experience.
And I'm not someone who feels motion sickness at all, whether on a boat, plane, rollercoaster or whatever...
But will look out for Gunjack, thanks!

It's on sale at mo for just £3.29 can't go wrong at that price, give it a go
HTC vive is more expensive and powerful so that's expected. I wanted to try PSVR but shouldn't cost £5 to try especially with all the sweat on that headset!
graphics are rubbish on psvr imo. was certainly disappointed with re7 anyway. had a go on HTC Vive though, wow! (Game @ Metro Centre, £5 for 10 mins)

How many Pro owners have a 1080p tv?
I don't know the exact figure if you're being specific, but there will be some that's for sure. I have a 1080P TV and a standard PS4, I wouldn't upgrade to a Pro for the marginal improvement, meaning it's not worth selling my PS4 and buying a new TV and a PS4 Pro.
Ive got a 4K TV and realistically I am not sure the upgrade is worth it even if you have a 4K TV..
For 4K its really good, thats the point of the device. Horizon is 4K native(checkerboard rendering) and HDR enabled.
It's a personal choice. The next gen will blow these away of course. The main thing is to play/experience the game itself. Always.

That's a contradiction, it's not native 4K when it's using checkerboard, checkerboard is an upscaling method, in this case to get 4K.

I agree, you'd have to look for the extra detail in Horizon Zero Dawn for example rather than it being stand out obvious, there's a comparison or comparison videos between 1080P and 4K for Horizon Zero Dawn on YouTube.

You can't go by Youtube videos, all Youtube videos are compressed, that's why Digital Foundry sometimes release the uncompressed versions of their videos.

It's not all just about FPS and resolution either, there are other graphical enhancements for Pro games, the same sort of stuff you would expect a choice of on PC, but in this case it's in the developers hands what's on or off.

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2016/11/01/how-ps4-pro-enhances-horizon-zero-dawn/

You really need to see it up close and personal to make a true comparison, whether that's 1080p vs 1080p or vs 4K, if you still feel the same then that's cool.

haha, same! the price will drop. :p
Was thinking of getting one of these with a 15% eBay code recently, ended up buying something else, then a 1440p 165hz screen with a 1080Ti.

Much bigger outlay i know, but well at least high frame rates are not a problem :p

I do enjoy how defensive the owners of differing systems get and the need to justify their allegiance and expenditure. Does this happen with all hobbyists?
"Yeah but my 1984 Ford Escort still gets me to Liverpool and back just like your Audi R8 at a fraction of the cost even if I do call out the AA so much they know me by the tone of my voice"
"My goldfish cost much less than your coy carp and only need a £70 tank compared to your £5,000 10ft pond. Plus, all I need to do is look at them through a magnifying glass and it's practically the same as looking at your coy"
Good job I have a gaming PC and a PS4 then. I haven't seen anything better on PC than Horizon Zero Dawn and there's a few articles out there that agree with me if you care to Google.

I think it does look fabulous. I'm not saying it doesn't. My comment is aimed at how defensive people get over their beloved purchases and feel the need to defend or justify them. I have an Xbox One S by the way. Bought a gaming PC a few years back, didn't like the sterile feel compared to Xbox Live (my opinion), and constant compatibility problems getting the software to work smoothly on the hardware. I'm not a developer so don't wish to spend ages optimising the software to the hardware via settings.So I now barely use it. My Xbox I use all the time. I shall upgrade to a Scorpio when it's out because I want the best way to play on a system I'm comfortable with. I'm aware there aren't many exclusives for Xbox and that right now PS4pro is more powerful. I'm also aware that PCs will forever be superior in horsepower. It goes without saying. There is no limit to budget with a PC. What I don't care about is having an allegiance to a system or company. Couldn't give a hoot. It just amuses me that so many do.

Anyway, my opinion, you're entitled to yours. :p

Probably the best PS4 pro deal I've seen since I got mine when Quidco were paying 10% Cashback at Argos. Mine worked out to £315 standalone.
With this deal you get promoted to silver status so you get 3% off future purchases
I wish all these deals had a different game available like Nier or Persona.

Won't be able to use 'worlds most powerful console' for much longer so may as well get the mileage from it they can
Doesn't mean **** without the games Sony is streets ahead in that department at the minute
Funny isn't it...first two year Xbox one had the first party support whilst ps4 was pretty bare...got away with it because it had the best versions of 3rd party support. Now Sony discovered the trick of announcing games years in advance and suddenly Xbox has no games...what first party games are out this year for ps4? What first party for Xbox one?..importantly, what's coming in the next two years for Xbox?
Also...it'll have the best 3rd party versions of the games...this has helped people adopt ps4 more than their first party games...which have never sold in great numbers.
But yes, it all comes to the right price point for Scorpio. And of course it would help if they leave the 'play anywhere' incentive behind. They want to sell gold subs at the end of the day...unless the plan is to charge for gold on windows again I can't see how it will benefit Xbox division long term
MS had a terrible launch. So much bad press (always online, no used games etc). Plus they launched a weaker console for £80 more than the competition. They basically gave Sony the platform they needed for a great launch.
PS4 has loads more exclusive games coming in the next year or two. So much diversity and new IPs, too! Something I feel MS have struggled with this gen. Several of Sony's executives have been multi-million sellers, so may have done better than you think.
With the Scorpio, the price is vital. It's a harder sell because you can play their games on a PC if you have one, or the much cheaper XBox One S, if you don't prioritise graphics etc.
Having said that, £400 or less and I'm there day one. Anything more and I'll just wait for a price drop, and if that doesn't happen sharpish, I'll just wait for the PS5 in 2019/2020.
Xbox one is the weaker console...but there's no denying it had the stronger lineup that first year, and the greater console exclusive support those first two years. People seem to forget this.Sony also do indeed show titles years in advance...I personally dont expect to be playing God of war, Last of us, or even Detroit, this year. First party games they have coming the remainder of the year? Uncharted add on? Hints of spider man? MS will no doubt have sea of thieves, crackdown, and state of decay hitting this year...those, along with halo wars, four exclusives (assuming they all come out) in 2017 isn't bad for a console with 'no games'.
I also think there seems to be a double standard with the 'press' (and gamers) when it comes to what is actually exclusive and what is console exclusive for the ps4 (nier, street fighter, no mans sky etc all hitting PC too) yet jump all over Xbox with their 'exclusives'...maybe rightly so, as 'play anywhere' does seem completely counter productive when the aim is to sell consoles. Their big money is indeed made from Gold subs...the pc market isn't producing that, so why offer gamers even less reason to buy xbox hardware...and therefore Gold subs? Its all sounds like something that's come from higher up than the xbox division. And it adds to the confusion of who Scorpio is actually for? they tell us its for the hardcore gamer, the ones who love their premium products...surely they're also the ones that invest in gaming pc's. Then again, how many decent gaming pc's capable of 4k gaming can be had for around the £400 mark...which surely MS can't afford the luxury of going over when they're so far behind in the race.
Personally, even without great exclusive support, if MS get the price right they have a winner...the real big games left this year are all multiplatform...who wouldnt want to play the very best versions of games like Red dead? All comes down to price though for me too.
Keep on telling yourself that mate but the numbers sold paint a different picture.
Keep on telling myself what? elaborate...if you're capable.
MS get the price right they have a winner...
No, they've lost this gen already.
No one really wants or cares about the Scorpio now. It's too niche.
As a mid-gen refresh they may end up selling more units than the ps4 pro, but i'm not saying they'll catch up to sony and win the generation, so don't get your panties in a twist. If the price is right it well just sell decently for them. If it's not it wont.

PS4 has outsold Xbone 2 to 1 no? Not that I care, I have both.

I think it's a bigger gap than that now.

No stock anywhere in my local area and no stock for delivery either :(

Shame as I had a £30 Argos gift card from Christmas that I haven't used yet.
I have just sold my xbox one s and purchased a ps4 pro and standalone UHD blu ray player. Horizon Zero Dawn is possibly the best game I have played in years. The xbox one s 4k blu ray player isnt really very good compared to my standalone player. On the Panasonic UB700 motion is a lot smoother and colours have more pop. Its also sharper.
great game :D

Not sure why so many are mentioning Scorpio on a deal for a PS pro

An educated guess says there will be many not sure why someone who is clearly a massive Xbox fan would decide to start mentioning his support for Scorpio in a PS Pro thread (_;)
Horizon Zero Dawn on the Samsung Ks7000 through the PS4 Pro is incredible, definitely the best looking game on a console by quite a while, second is probably Uncharted 4 which is also on the pro. 2 great story telling games too.

I Recommend the Pro:D

gimped standard blu ray player for £300+, no thanks, I'll pick one up when it comes down to £200ish

Yeah, we're missing out on all the amazing 4k Bluray titles.........oh wait

Seriously, pointless comment, it's a game console not a media hub. there are a 10001 media players available, consoles should focus on gaming 100% imo!! - Which incidently is why the XBone has been such a huge flop and Microsoft can't wait to sweep it under the carpet.

If they added a 4k Bluray the price would have been 400, and my Xbox One S gathers dust tbh because the multi platform games run better on the PS4 than the XboxOne

as it is 300 odd quid all spent on added graphic hardware vs Microsoft who just threw in a budget 4k bluray player in a console that can just about manage to run 1080p games at 30fps, i'll take the extra gaming power thanks! :D

Maybe the PS5 will have a built in coffee machine too huh? just to appease you :D

If the Scorpio doesn't have a food blender attachment i'm gonna troll the Microsoft threads in a similar fashion ;) (i'll still be buying one though and not trolling in threads offering weak excuses because i can't afford one :p)

Also, of the 4k bluray discs that have been released, they mostly lack Atmos or DTS-X, so premium visuals but sub standard audio? is that so they can rip everyone off with a new revised 4k Bluray with Atmos later down the road?? big con, once you watch a film it mostly gathers dust for months and you'll probably watch it on channel 5 before you get the disc out again...........Mugs game

Anyway, this deal is cold... simply because of Very, nothing more

4k* upscaled
There are some native 4k games
Some are checkerboard but I doubt you would even notice the difference unless using a huge screen.
The extra power can and should be used elsewhere imo, even the Scorpio will substitute native 4k for a better gaming experience
The only native 4K games I've seen are PS3 games or very basic games like side-scrollers.
As soon as the checkerboard was mentioned I knew people would talk about it as if it's almost indistinguishable from a native 4K render. It's even more questionable when the same sorts of people are talking about HDR and using good TVs and picking apart comparisons between TVs in terms of picture quality. All that though is seemingly sat aside and suddenly upscalling's artifacts or shortcomings are ignored or made a lesser point when discussing picture quality.
I agree though that they should just target 60 FPS first and foremost. Then render whatever resolution they can.

Not ignoring it, I believe it was acknowledged, just stating that most people won't notice it, especially those who purchased an aforementioned budget 4k 55"

In fact they may well not even notice the difference between 1080p and 4k, but that's another matter.

And regardless of which games are in Native 4k, they are still 4k whichever way you look at it, they aren't all 'upscaled'

I don't believe I made any claims other than that, I certainly didn't say there wasn't a difference, just mindful that I am posting on a deals website and not AVForums where 'enthusiasts' mostly have decent equipment and know about any shortcomings.

I would expect newer models very soon which include the UHD bluray player
you think so? they need to do something with the Xbox scorpio out soon which trounces this in every way. cannot believe they left out the UHD player. I'm holding off buying one as the upgrade from ps4 is not worth it.
Scorpio isn't going to be cheap, it certainly won't be the equivalent of the US price over here.
Boost mode has definitely made the Pro more desirable, works great.
true about scorpio, but the pro is still double the price of an ordinary ps4, to justify that they could have at least put a UHD player on it. like the old ps3 with blue ray, i used it as a stand alone blue ray player. i wanted the same with the pro less space.

Sony aren't stupid, if it was a financially viable option I'm sure they would have.

I'm not in a hurry for UHD when the master format is still mostly 2K even if its source is 4K, all CGI is still done in 2K.

I would because I've moved the Jags to become the London Monachs in franchise owner mode and want to get my season going haha
I bought this for around this price a couple of months ago, really good game, but can be frustrating with interceptions if you don't watch what's going on and throw blindly.

The tutorials section alone is MASSIVE though and I had good fun learning more about the more technical aspects of the sport by playing through them. The menu structure is completely crap (imo) but functional once you get used to it.

Plus, to top it all off, the best Corner in football is on the cover, and it's the right season for Beast Mode :P

I wouldn't care, it's a shame because I think that's one HELL OF A DEAL.
I never knew they were banned. What did they get banned for?
Dunno. Just deleted my post because they've since doubled the price of it and I didn't want to waste people's time. Thrilled to get it for under £20 though.
No idea why banned, but I tried to post the deal and it came up as such. Glad it failed now, because they've changed the price.

why do people keep posting the £35 every couple of weeks would the £50 not be a greater saving of £ to psn conversion
30.30 / 35 = 0.86571428571
43.69 / 50 = 0.8738
This kind of post is so very useful.
Has anyone checked how well this particular deal compares to recent past CDKeys PSN credit? I'm topping up to get the £50 spend but my wallet will be empty, so I'm wondering whether I should buy another of these (appears to be best price per pound currently) or wait and hope for better when I need it.

just got a PS4. Do you need to subscribe to play multiplayer online now? it used to be free!
Normally you get 7/14 days free. before you have to buy PS+ make sure you claim your free PS+ before using or buying any codes/cards for PS+ or els your lose it.
Once you have activated your free PS+ you can then stack any PS+ membership on top of this. E.G if you have 12 Months PS+ you will have 12month and 7-14days.
Thank you! Good tips. Is PS+ the same as PSN subscription or separate?

it is the same thing.

Great price. Tempted, but no 4K TV yet
You don't NEED the 4K yet to get a better gaming experience. Not all games on the PS4 run at full res and framerate. They do on a pro. (as such) So you will see a difference on pro enhanced games even at 1080p

True, but £315 worth of difference? Not sure.


well it's not £315 is it, not if sell old one for £150. it's the incremental cost fella, not rocket science, not splitting atoms here

I am never a fan of fighting robots in games. is this different?

The robots behave like animals/dinosaurs and you have to approach fighting each one differently. Some you can take out with one arrow if you aim properly. Some you'll have more luck tying down using the ropecaster and then digging your spear in. Some are vulnerable to fire damage so you can set them alit with fire arrows. You can set traps too, to lure them in. Some have super weak parts that only show once you've damaged them enough so a hit to that can take them down easy. There are little quick ones, giant double decker bus size ones, some that'll even hunt you if you wander into their territory.

What I'm saying is, there's a lot to it, and it's somehow all REALLY FUN. They've got the difficultly level just right where it's still a challenge, but it won't have you rage quitting like Dark Souls or something. You also level up and get better with your weapons as the game progresses, so machines you had trouble with at the start are easily dispatched once you're a more seasoned warrior.
You guys know theres no announced dlc for it yet? Unless theyve said something about it recently. But game was worth the price. Definitely having a lot of fun with it

Doesn't make much sense to me as this is £10 cheaper than a PS4 Pro deal which is currently over 700 degrees.

Fair enough not everyone can get this deal, but for those that can it is the cheapest PS4 Pro available. Don't think you can vote it down, just because you don't have an AMEX, that's like everyone voting down alcohol deals if they are under 18.

sounds like they are just padding out the deal with rubbish deals...whilst I personally liked the infamous game...and platinum it in fact. you can probably pick it up from the likes of CEX for a £10 now and PS+ for 3 months can be had for £14.99 or cheaper if you go via CDKeys or similar...so unless you want ALL three things...then this is an awful deal

wow... the amount of energy being spent here arguing about gaming platforms etc... that time could be spent actually gaming on the device of your choice!
Oooft. .the fanboys are strong in this thread lol. People getting butthurt because someones bashing on their tech and everyone trying to justify why their (enter gaming platform and 4k TV here) is the best choice. So sad. Different folks...different folks.

If you dont want a gaming PC with a 1080Ti that can run 4k 60fps...dont buy one. Similary if you want something portable dont buy a ps pro or a gaming pc. Buy what you want and what makes you happy. Simple.
swanlake
I've a PS4 slim and having been playing Horizon Zero Dawn on a 4K TV. The difference even the HDR makes on the original PS4 is unreal. Unsure if purchasing a PS4 Pro would be worth it for the extra boost as this looks enough. Good price for a PS4 Pro but think i'll hold off until the next generation on console arrives.

But the OG supports HDR, it was patched....... So not sure what the advantage of the Slim is (especially when its lost Optical output). I guess it saves a bit on the electricity bill compared to the OG.
simonbrown
On the subject on PS4 Pro power vs PC, here's Dark Souls 3 with it's newly unlocked framerate and Pro patch running worse at 1080p on the Pro than it does on a GTX 970 -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrR3ak6dMwM
Of course the Pro is still a lot cheaper than a PC though, and even though I'm a PC gamer I always buy the consoles too for the exclusives (aside from xbone which doesn't have any).

Comparing video cards is a bit pointless, It's likely a CPU bottleneck rather than GPU.

This game is pretty poorly optimized

Its just a mechanical hard drive with a small cache. Nothing special about this at all. Its the price you expect for 2 tb drive.
Damn it, literally just went looking for one of these, searched here to find this bargain price in my opinion, only to click through and now over £100 on Amazon.

why do u keep mentioning 8gb? its a 2Tb drive...did i miss something?
"Solid State Hard Drive" means a small solid state drive and a big hard drive are combined into one unit and appear as one unit to whatever it gets plugged into. The solid state portion is 8GB, the hard drive is 2TB. You see a 2TB drive but up to 8GB of data can be accessed way faster than a regular hard drive. Unfortunately 8GB is an absolutely tiny amount of data so these drives are barely better than a pure hard drive in real world use.
Yes it only has 8GB of NAND, but do you know what the purpose of a load screen is during a game?
Games use loads screens to read what's needed into memory (RAM) first and how much memory does a PS4 have, 8GB.
So it shouldn't be to difficult to understand why these drives have there use, reading data into memory from NAND is much faster and is exactly what's happening in the video above.
Except that has problems in practice, like how does the drive know to cache the next level? It doesn't understand what a level is, it only knows blocks. It can guess that maybe if you read 1MB of blocks that maybe the following 1MB of blocks would also be useful so it can load that, but if that first 1MB is the start of a 50GB read then caching that little bit extra isn't useful. For all of that huge read btw it's spending all its time waiting for the HDD portion to come back with data, the interface to the computer is a few times faster than the HDD so every time it loads a block it immediately gets sent over to the computer, the cache is totally useless there.
One of the places it does work are when you're writing less than 8GB and not asking for a sync to HDD. In that situation you get SSD-writing speeds which aren't great because, well, it's a terrible SSD, maybe 1 flash chip being written to instead of the 8-16 simultaneously of a full-blown SSD.
The other place is in re-reading frequently accessed data that fits in the cache, maybe for a page file? Not much to say here, if you've accessed it once it'll probably still be in cache when you access it again assuming you don't wait too long.
Here's a review to back this up (reviews are kinda hard to find): https://youtu.be/4kRswpJfJhQ?t=262
The results? It's the same or worse than a regular HDD. I'm surprised it doesn't benefit in the areas outlined above. The PS4's a weird case btw, it seems like it's terrible at HDD accesses. Like seriously awful. Why on earth should it take more time to load low resolution textures from an SSD than it takes a PC to load high resolution ones from the same SSD. There's a bottleneck somewhere there and it isn't the drive.
Maybe you should read all posts in a thread including mine, or watch the video I posted above, I never said it was a psychic drive, of course it doesn't know in advance what level is coming next.http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/seagate-firecuda-2tb-2-5-solid-state-hard-drive-sshd-79-99-amazon-2644072?p=30343880
I'm also only talking about PS4 use, I couldn't care less about anything else when you can use an SSD, PS4 isn't going to be loading anything above 8 GB during an in game load.
They have very limited use, but personally I don't want to wait forever when I die in a game.
FYI - Most of those tests that guy runs in the video are pointless with SSHD, at least without more info on previous loads, Crystal Disk Mark would only ever test the mechanical part of the drive.
Well since they're not advertised as being exclusively compatible with games consoles maybe we should evaluate their usefulness in other scenarios? I wouldn't judge a car exhaust on its ability to be a chimney for a house but this is a generic, plain old hard drive that'd fit in nearly any computer made in the last decade or two.
My use case is as a NAS drive since 2.5" drives that could spin down the HDD and use the SSD as a write cache until that fills up would be ideal for saving power. The random write performance could be pretty great, random reads could be better than normal if it eagerly reads surrounding blocks. While it could do all of this it is instead junk for this usage because they've chosen an unsuitable algorithm. C'mon seagate, rename this brand "gamercuda" and bring out an enterprise version (not too expensive mind you) with a good algorithm for servers.

I think you misunderstand how these drives work, in any case would you really want to use an SMR drive in a NAS?

ps4 pro consoleIntroducing the PS4 Pro

The PlayStation has been around in some form since 1994, but this buyer’s guide deals with the most recent incarnation: the PS4 Pro. Battling it out with Microsoft’s Xbox One, the PS4 is a fantastic gaming machine, but is it worth upgrading to a PS4 Pro?

The History of the PS4

The PS4 was first launched in 2013 and it represented a huge improvement on the PS3. With more graphical power, smartphone hook-ups and enhanced internet gaming services, the PS4 was more than a match for the Xbox One, which was announced at about the same time. Since then, there have been a few minor updates. For example, 2016 saw the release of the PS4 Slim, which is 40% smaller and therefore much more mobile. But there were no major changes to the PS4 hardware, at least until the PS4 Pro was unveiled. The question is, does the new system actually offer a huge leap forwards for PlayStation gaming and is it better than the competition?

The PS4: Main Specifications

Before listing the specs of the PS4 Pro, it’s important to note that the PS4 Pro is not a radically new system. Sony haven’t totally re-engineered their processor and graphics cards. Instead, they have added some features that will appeal to serious gamers, and which genuinely sets the PS4 Pro apart from its less complex cousin.

The PS4 Pro brings the following specifications to the table:

  • A 1TB hard disk.
  • Two times the GPU power of the original PS4, which enables the PS4 Pro to handle much higher graphical resolutions.
  • A speed boost to the PS4 CPU: The PS4 has an AMD Radeon processor with 1.84 TFLOPS, the PS4 Pro comprises an AMD Radeon processor with 4.2 TFLOPS.
  • 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.
  • Dimensions: 295×55×327mm.
  • Weight: 3.3kg.
  • 3 Super-Speed USB ports and 1 aux port.
  • Bluetooth 4.0 networking.
  • 310W power consumption.
  • A 4K compatible HDMI output port.
  • On the downside is that the PS4 Pro has no 4K Blu-ray drive.

Introducing the PlayStation 4 Pro

Different PS4 Pro Bundles

The PS4 Pro also comes in a variety of different bundles, so customers will need to choose the one that best meets their needs.

  • The basic PS4 Pro Bundle – Comes with 1TB of hard disk space, a black Dualshock 4 games PS4 controller, HDMI and USB cables, a mono headset, an AC power cable and documentation to help you get started.
  • Themed PS4 Pro bundles – Customers can also purchase the basic PS4 Pro deal above, but with some of the leading PS4 games included as part of the deal. Bundles could include popular titles like FIFA17, No Man’s Sky, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Grand Theft Auto V.
  • VR Bundles – Another exciting aspect of the PS4 Pro is its VR capabilities. The 4K HD graphics that it generates have great potential for new forms of VR gaming and bundles are on the market that include the Sony PlayStation VR, a VR headset that is dedicated to gaming on Sony’s consoles. If you do choose to buy a VR bundle, make sure you include the right camera in the bundle, as the headset won’t work without one.
  • PS4 Pro and TV deals – Another bundle that merchants are offering is to purchase a PS4 Pro with a high-end 4K TV & HD TV. This might be attractive, as the HD capabilities of the PS4 Pro can only really be enjoyed on a cutting-edge TV.

How Does the PS4 Pro Compare with the Original PS4?

The major comparison is between the PS4 Pro and the original PS4. The first thing to note is that all PS4 titles will work on your PS4 Pro. Sony have explicitly designed the updated console to be part of the PlayStation “Family” and all your current games will work just fine.

In fact, more recent titles should look considerably better on the PS4 Pro than the original PS4 thanks to its 4K visual capabilities. Sony has no plans to start launching PS4 Pro exclusives, but that may be a possibility as more people buy the system.

The PS4 Pro is superior to the PS4 on almost every level. It is twice as fast (at least according to Sony) so the frame rate on older titles will be smoother and almost every title will look crisper thanks to the high-resolution display. You can also stream games and online content via the PS4 Pro to 4K compatible TVs, something that the PS4 couldn’t even dream of doing.

VR is another major plus of the PS4 Pro. When the PS4 was launched, VR gaming was hardly talked about. Now, it’s seen as the next big thing, and to really immerse yourself in PlayStation VR (the Sony VR platform), you’ll need the highest resolution graphics on offer and the processing power to run them at frame rates that don’t cause nausea. The old PS4 couldn’t quite manage it, but the PS4 Pro can. The PS4 Pro also comes with an optical out, something the PS4 and PS4 Slim lack.

ps4 pro vr

Having said that, Sony have updated some aspects of the PS4 to enhance its graphical power. For example, a recent software update enabled PS4 owners to use HDR graphics. While they won’t compare to 4K, this still makes the PS4’s graphics much crisper.

What About the Xbox?

Other customers won’t be too worried about upgrading from the PS4. Instead, they will be choosing between the PS4 Pro and the latest Xbox One model, the Xbox One S.

In terms of sheer processing power, the PS4 Pro blows the Xbox One S out of the water. The graphics chip on the PS4 Pro can generate 4 TFLOPS, while the Xbox One S is rated at 1.4 TFLOPS. This really matters. With its added graphics processing power, the PS4 Pro can handle very high resolution content that the Xbox One S can’t. In fact, it looks like PS4 Pro titles will be the only true 4K titles on the market, a big plus for graphical purists.

However, before you order a PS4 Pro, there’s one issue that needs to be considered. Sony have decided not to include an Ultra HD Blu-ray player in their system, but you do get one with the Xbox One S. As Ultra HD Blu-ray players are extremely expensive and the Xbox One S is quite affordable, this could be a game-changer for movie and TV fans.

In terms of the games library available for both consoles (and older Xbox Ones or PS4s), there’s not much difference. Whether you love Call of Duty or Uncharted, you can enjoy your favourite franchise on whatever console you choose.

What to Think About Before Buying a PS4 Pro

So, to recap, the PS4 Pro represents a big improvement in terms of graphical processing power, 4K capability, general processing speed and – potentially – VR gaming. If you are the kind of gamer who is irritated by blurry characters and objects that blend into their surroundings, the extra HD visuals offered by the PS4 Pro will be a major influence on your decision to purchase.

The VR issue is also something to think about. If you are someone who is anticipating and excited about the VR revolution, then you can do better than investing in a PS4 Pro. No other console has the power and accessories needed to immerse yourself comfortably in VR games. Sony have also committed to developing VR titles and supporting VR gamers with new accessories, so the future looks bright.

The thing is, not everyone is a VR gaming fanatic. The technology is still immature, and the range of high-quality VR titles is sparse. If you want to buy a console for pure gaming and are a fan of current titles, the case for the PS4 Pro isn’t so clear cut. The controller is more or less the same (and the dualshock 4 is compatible with the original PS4). The PS4’s graphics were pretty high-end to begin with, and if you don’t have a 4K TV, you won’t get the full benefit of the PS4’s added abilities.

PS VR – For the Players

Then there’s price. The PS4 Pro has been launched at a moderate price range, and you can always find discount deals with merchants at the PS4 Pro HotUKDeals listings. However, now could be the time to find even better deals on PS4 systems and accessories as merchants anticipate the new system becoming mainstream.

You’ll also need to decide whether you are an Xbox One or PS4 fan. Both the Xbox One S and the PS4 Pro are steps forward from their predecessors, and they are both advanced gaming systems. The PS4 Pro has the edge in graphical power and 4K, but the Xbox One S suits movie lovers with its Ultra HD Blu-ray drive. There’s not a huge amount to choose between them, so it’s probably a question of which one you like the most.

Are There Any Accessories Available for the PS4 Pro?

As with almost any gaming system, the PS4 Pro can be enhanced with the right mix of accessories, and several options have appeared on the market. Here are some of the most useful PS4 Pro accessories that you might want to add to your bundle:

  • The Dualshock 4 Controller – Said by Sony to be the most responsive controller they have ever created, the Dualshock 4 resembles the classic PlayStation controller, but has some major differences. For one thing, it’s a wireless device. There’s also a handy touchscreen at the centre of the device and tools that hook-up with PlayStation VR. The Share button also allows users to instantly share in-game replays with their online contacts, a neat touch that hardcore gamers will appreciate.
  • The Platinum Wireless Headset – Many PS4 Pro bundles come with a generic mono headset, but real gamers will want something more advanced. Sony’s Platinum Wireless Headset has been designed to connect to the PlayStation VR headset and offers 3D surround sound, so that audio can come at gamers from every direction.
  • Logitech’s Driving Force – The PS4 Pro can also be turned into an immersive driving experience thanks to the Driving Force controller from Logitech. With a gear shift lever, a steering wheel, force feedback and a pedal board with excellent grip, if you like driving games, this will make them more authentic than ever.

Along with physical accessories, PS4 Pro owners can enjoy the same online services as PS4 and PS Vita owners. The most obvious thing to note is that all PS4 Pro users are able to subscribe to Playstation Plus, which allows you to play online games and obtain free downloads. Memberships can be purchased cheap on HotUKDeals, so it’s worth checking the HUKD deals for any discounts before you visit Sony’s website.

What About the PS4 Game Collection?

The PS4 Pro also inherits a huge game library from its predecessor. If you are new to the system, you’ll be able to explore popular games, like Uncharted, Grand Theft Auto V, No Man’s Sky and Shovel Knight.

You’ll also be able to enjoy many PS4 games in updated versions. Generally, this will mean near enough 4K graphics with more vivid colours and crisper textures. Some games have already been updated and include:

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Assassin’s Creed: the Ezio Collection, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, The Elder Scrolls Online, Fallout 4, Gran Turismo Sport, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Killing Floor 2, The Last of Us Remastered, NBA 2K17, Rez Infinite, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

Not all of these updates offer major differences, but in some cases, experienced players will notice huge enhancements. As noted above, all PS4 games will work on your PS4 Pro, but no PS4 Pro exclusives are in the pipeline (although this may change).

Looking Forwards: The PlayStation 5 and Project Scorpio

You can never be sure when companies are going to announced products that make your console obsolete, and there are strong indications that the near future will see revolutionary new products come onto the market.

For example, it's extremely likely that Microsoft will release its next generation VR console within the next year. Known as Project Scorpio, the machine promises 6 TFLOPS of graphics processing power and true 4K gaming. With those specs, it will be even better positioned to deal with VR gaming than the PS4 Pro, which could quickly come to be seen as outdated.

In fact, Sony have more or less recognised this by speeding up the development of the PlayStation 5. There's no firm release date yet, but the signs are that the PS5 will launch in 2018. It's likely that the PS5 will be more powerful than the Scorpio (and much more powerful than the PS4 Pro), and will be optimised for 4K gaming.

Both the Scorpio and the PS5 are months or years away from release. If you purchase a PS4 Pro now, it will still be state of the art for at least two years, but it's worth being aware that new products will eventually make an upgrade almost essential.

Where and When to Buy Your PS4 Pro

There are many ways to buy a PS4 Pro, with different vendors offering a range of bundles and price points. As usual with gaming systems, it pays to shop around to see which retailers are offering current discounts as these prices can rapidly change.

One option is to visit a bricks and mortar store to see the PS4 Pro in action (and maybe even compare it there and then to the PS4). High street shops that you might try include GAME, Argos and Tesco, all of which have listed PS4 Pro bundles on HotUKDeals.

Then there are online sellers. Some of the best PS4 Pro bundles are to be found at online retailers like Zavvi, Simply Games or Amazon, while eBay is worth checking out as well.

The other major place to buy a PS4 Pro bundle is on the Sony PlayStation website itself. Head to the PS4 Pro section where you can find out more about the specs, what games have released updates and information about accessories.

You can save money on PS4 and PS4 Pro bundles by choosing the right time to shop, not just the right vendor. Black Friday and Cyber Monday always see Sony and retailers dropping the prices of gaming systems, while the post-Christmas sales are another good time to shop.

With the PS4 Pro having been recently launched, the price of PS4 bundles may be falling in response. If the new console takes off, expect to see cheaper deals for the original system at the HotUKDeals listings and take advantage of them if you can.
