@JonhnyShoulder The new gen systems will be with us until 2025-7, and they'll probably be targeting 4K as a base output, but we're already seeing 8K and beyond tv's coming to market. So what happens when these tv's become more afforable to the masses in a few short years. I'm no techie but surely it would better to have the upscaling tech baked into the new consoles rather than leaving it to the displays themselves.

@seanobi I’d imagine we’d get a PS5 Pro.

@seanobi Yeah, I don't think that will happen, it makes too much sense lol.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@Jaz007 That's depressing. For me the ps4 pro was a complete waste of money. If it was my first 8th gen console i could see the appeal but i don't buy a console only to find i need a new one 2 years later a la xbox

@seanobi You don’t need to upgrade though? I have a launch PS4 that works great and I have no regrets from getting it or do I have plans to buy a PS4 Pro.

@seanobi The way 8k TV's are looking, Upscaling may well be better handled by the TV anyway. These are utilising AI to upscale and the more upscaling they do, the better they can predict and fill in the missing gaps. I would expect the next generation of consoles to be 8k capable by having HDMI2.1 ports. That doesn't mean I expect games to be 8k but certainly some could be. When you consider Fifa 17 runs at a Native 4k and 60fps on a PS4, there is no where to go with HDMI 2.0. If the PS5 is that much more powerful, Fifa will still be 4k/60 and the system would barely be running and have so much overhead. HDMI 2.1 could offer 8k/60 or maybe 4k/120. With VRR, games could run at 50fps, 113fps, 76fps etc with out any screen tear or 'judder' - even if the frame rate is unlocked and running between 60 and 100fps.

As for the Pro being a waste of money or becoming 'obsolete' after a few years, that is ridiculous. Its been a great 'half step' and delivers the 'best' Playstation gaming experience and has done for the past 26months. It will be the 'best' PS4 console for years after the PS5 launches - all Sony consoles have continued to be supported, continued to be made and sold for years after the next gen comes on the market. There are people that don't buy 'next' gen consoles for at least a year after they launch so are still benefiting from all the advantages that the Pro offers over the PS4 - its not JUST resolution either. The RE2 demo for example runs at 60fps with the odd frame rate drops here and there on the Pro yet on a PS4, its mostly between 40 and 50fps. Some games offer 60fps modes too so not only do you get better visuals, you also get a better, smoother gaming experience with more 60fps games. That may not be important to some people, but for others, frame rates and consistency can make a difference between a playable game and an unplayable mess...

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

I'd be happy throwing £400 at one. Which is actually £800 cause me and my fiancee have our living room set up with two consoles and two televisions so that's gonna be a rough Christmas.

I would really, really, really like it if they could keep the 400$/€ price point. Of course it was still "high", but this was one of the big reason PS4 did so well IMHO.

If the rumors of a PS5 that is fully backward compatible all the way to PS1 turn out to be true, and if it is region free, and fully supports 4K out of the box, and has no glaring drawback like an always online requirement or Kinect style always watching you camera...

Despite being the Nintendo die hard that I am, I'd buy a PS5 easily for 500 dollars. But I would hope it is closer to 350.

@KidBoruto Specs don't really speak to me, but the backward compatibility is big for me. Going from 400 to 550 or something?

It sounds expensive but people need to get it out of there heads that it will be the same as building a PC. I be willing to pay 500 of my English pounds tops.

For the console plus 1 controller with no games
£400 for a 1 terabyte model
£500 for a 2 TB model
£550 for a 4 TB model
I’ll probably spend another £200 max on Games, PS+, Additional controllers and camera (assuming I need a new one for VR).
£750 max all in.

I hope PS5 excepts some kind of memory card that allows you to expand storage without impacting performance.

@JohnnyShoulder You guys in Europe must be filthy rich or have tiny 4KTV's. No offense, but spending a 5x more than a 1080p TV isn't that appealing given how small of a difference the increased resolution gives. 99% of the boost in graphics on the Pro is due to the hardware itself and not that it's able to output a 4K resolution.

My 50" HDTV was a hair under $300 while its 4K counterpart was $1599.99.

@Ryall Other than a few of the PS2 Classics on PS4, I noticed zero difference between playing on a disc or a digital game on my 4 TB HDD. And even those same PS2 Classics work flawlessly on my console's built-in internal hard-drive.

I would pay £399 for the console. Knowing how things are at launch in the UK, it will be bundled with random games and accessories, so will go up to £500.

Edit: Also hope good 4K TVs will be more affordable by that point, so add another grand on for that. My old 1080i tele is showing it's age.
