PS4 Pro PlayStation 4 Hardware 1

Sony took a bath on the PlayStation 3 just to get Blu-ray into as many homes as possible, so it's strange to see the company ignore the fledgling Ultra High-Definition Blu-ray format a decade later. Times have changed since the turbulent days of 2006, of course: streaming is, for many, their primary means of consuming media now – and there's no competing format like HD-DVD that the Japanese giant needs to defeat.

But still, with its primary competitor embracing the technology, has the platform holder made a mistake by skipping UHD Blu-ray in its premium PlayStation 4 revision, the PS4 Pro? We figured that this would make an interesting poll as there are a lot of passionate opinions flying around, so feel free to take the survey and expand upon your thoughts in the comments section below.
