Ps4 Pro resolution = 1440p.


forbes.com/sit…-x/

the Pro plays at 2560 x 1440 while the One X comes in at 2880 x 1620.

Not 900p. That's standard Xbox...

That's not news to anyone that's used zavvi before
Please heed the warning, avoid zavvi like the plague guys.
I dont mind Zavvi. They refunded me for a game that didn't turn up and then it arrived. Bonus.

Lots of us have. Their CS is cancer.
Rather go for the nokeys MS Ireland one. £341 with an extra pad and Halo 5.
I’ve been stung by customs for buying from Zavvi.

You can face fines from customs if you order this from Ireland as Zavvi posts from Channel Islands.

It was the case a few years ago that if you ordered anything from Zavvi to Ireland that cost more than €22 you would be fined a chunk
In a years time I would not be surprised to see this console sub £250, as the next gen consoles Xbox Two, PS5 should be announced sometime in 2019. The Xbox One X is too little too late for me.

You're talking hardware specific. Xbox One X does not fully take advantage of it's small graphic bump advantage in the vast majority of games, the games just aren't supported.

I hear you like Forbes links: so here's one for you:

100% true.
I purchased a top spec gaming PC last year with the best of everything. Cost me a arm and leg. Played heavily for the first two months and haven't touched it since. Everyone bangs on about PC being the best. But the truth is, I much prefer consoles.
Everyone has a preference. Each one has something better than the others.
Although my next crazy idea is a bartop. (wife is going to kill me). But it means all my retro consoles and games came be left in the loft and not brought down every other month.

Starting tomorrow for one week (March 18 - March 24) if you buy a Xbox One X you will get a Free Digital Copy of Sea of Thieves so best holding off until tomorrow if you are tempted by this.

And on one x native 4k for a lot of games, if you have a decent tele the difference is huge and I have a pro aswell.

I'll be getting a nice gaming rig like of which you speak because I really want to play Star Citizen. But the upside of PC gaming over console is the Steam platform which has massive discounts on popular games. With a steam link you can even stream it to your TV and play it on the sofa like a console game.
Definitely worth getting a PS4 Pro for the PS4 platform exclusives: Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted series, Spider-Man, The Last of Us.

That simply isn't true! With current releases PS4 Pro games are usually 1440p whereas Xbox One X is typically around 1800p. Games with dynamic resolution X1X can run at a significantly higher resolution, for example in Wolfenstein 2 the same scenes can be a 2.25 times higher resolution on X1X.

If you watch analysis videos by Digital Foundry Xbox One X has a very clear lead over PS4 Pro. It also runs 360 titles and better than they ever ran on 360 and some have been updated to run at native 4K for no cost when a PS4 won't run PS3 games at all. Multiplatform games are better on X1X for titles that support both the X and the Pro.

However PS4 Pro does have a dramatically better selection of exclusive games.

Well shock, you don't need a 'top spec' gaming pc to enjoy pc games. You can easily get a pc that matches the X for within £50 if you get decent offers, maybe a few second hand parts. Besides games r cheaper on pc, and you don't need to pay for online services etc, it's not all about £2000 PC's, and depends on what you want, a flexibility you don't have on console.

I think the Channel Islands were never in the EU -it’s a protectorate of the crown or something so it’s only if you post to Ireland or outside UK that it becomes a problem.
matedodgy2 h, 58 m ago

What was zavvis response?


I had ordered before customs started doing fines for Zavvi in Ireland so I had to wait to see would I be lucky or not. I ordered a €60 boxset and had to pay about €20 to the post office for the fine.

I didn’t bother trying to get a refund from Zavvi because I’m a lazy dude but they say on their site now that customs charges have to be borne by you.

If you’re in the UK you won’t get fined

Very true. Just doesn't do anything for me.
Some people prefer the ease of console gaming. Zero effort, zero bugs, zero complications.

Absolutely. I used a discount code on a preorder (didn't know it wasn't allowed) and they didn't cancel the order - they just never sent it out. I had to chase it up quite a few times on social media before they finally cancelled my order but the amount of hassle with them isn't worth the saving unless it's a big one.
Forgive my ignorance. I have a One; my son has a One. Do you need a 4K TV to appreciate the improvement? Or can you see a differenenxe between this and the One on an ordinary 1080 TV. Asking for a friend?

I have a 680 and tried running Forza 7... it did not go well.

I don't normally respond to such tosh, but it needs to be pointed out that SlimyJo's statement is absolute fraff.

I wouldn't want someone to read this statement and actually believe it.

Just go on digital foundry YouTube channel if you want to know the real deal with the Xbox One X, which out performs the PS4 pro in every cross platform title.

Xbox One X plays full 4k which I believe is 2160p for MOST enhanced games whereas PS4 Pro only does 1440p often via checker boarding with a few games going above this resolution.

For the record I own both, so no fanboy nonsense going on here.

The PS4 Pro is fantastic and the exclusives are great, but it's important that when in a place like this you give facts, which can help people decide in an informed manner as to what products to buy!

With regards to the comment for Injustice 2 watch
to see just how much nonsense SlimyJo was claiming in their comment.
