Re: I Kinda Hope Sony Makes a PS4 Pro Slim Revision.

I don't think they'd bill it as an "upgrade" if they did it. I think it'd just be a revision to the product line. I personally do think we'll see a PS4 Superslim and a PS4 Pro Slim at some point. Unfortunately, I think both will be designed to bring the manufacturing cost down, which means they're likely to have "cheap as chips" build quality again.

Yep, I'm with you. For a premium product, the PS4 Pro doesn't feel very premium at all. I'm cool with them making the standard PS4 Slim as cheap and cheerful as possible because it's a mass audience product that they'll want to sell as cheaply as possible, but the Pro should be a bit more luxurious IMO.

I think we'll see a revision either this year or next.

It just all feels like filler in place of a couple of stories they could have posted such as a recent rumour that new details of the Medievil Remaster could be announced at PAX East along with the funny story that Randy Pitchford embarrassed himself by pleading for cross platform play to CEO Kaz Hirai's twitter, not knowing it's a parody account. Both stories could have generated just as many hits and discussions then nearly ten Far Cry 5 guides.

Discussion? Possibly yes. But unfortunately I can guarantee that traffic-wise this couldn't be further from the truth.

However I would add that we've actually expanded the team; Glen Fox is focused mainly on guides, while we've added Stephen Tailby on "traditional" editorial. Effectively this means that we can cover more than we ever have in the past, although we still need to pick our battles.

Definitely hear your concerns with regards to the guides. One thing we've been doing is back dating some of them so they're pushed down the timeline away from the latest news. I also agree that on the game pages in particular it might be nice to have a 'Guides' tab to separate them out.

The reason for the guides is simple: they're growing the site. I don't want to get too heavy into the statistics, but doing them is enabling us to get Push Square where we want it to be. Updating/republishing content also maintains our rank on Google for certain search terms, but obviously we're trying add value when we do this. Take for example Rob's RPG guide, which he re-ordered and added 10 games to before republishing today.

I do understand the criticism because I don't want the homepage to be cluttered either, but I also think the guides do add value because people clearly are using them. Thus, as with anything, it's about us finding a way of delivering this stuff without it being too obtrusive, which is maybe something we need to work harder on.
