I'm not buying another fucking PS4, the one I have is very expensive already and they want me to buy another one? Fuck you Sony.

They don't want you to buy "another" one. 

No one is holding a gun to your head. 

Every game made will work on both skus just as always.

So...it's just better graphics? Same catalogue? Why would I? My PS4 does quite well on its own, thanks.

I don't disagree with this sentiment.

But for what seems the majority, the PS4 version of the multiplats being just "better graphics" is enough reason.  So, my guess is that if this is true, the graphics whores who count the pixels while running and gunning or racing will clearly need this upgrade.

True but it won't look much better than it does. It'll just be 4K at best. Probably better processing speed. When you make something like this you're confining the product to a specific and limited market. People who will buy another PS4 for the sake of pixels and slightly enhanced processing power and those who are just okay with their current experience with PS4 that don't want to drop another 300-400 bucks on a slight upgrade. The latter will be much greater as long as the catalogue is the same.

3DS is huge. Not as big as DS but it's 60 Million units sold. The New 3DS came out to some fanfare but after a while it died down and only has a few games exclusive to it. But now the New 3DS is the model to buy while phasing out the older models. If they go with this "New PS4" idea. It should gradually phase out the older models because the newer one will be the one to buy just like the New 3DS is the console to buy for the 3DS family. I guess Sony is just trying to reach people who will pay for a premium experience because those people do exist. It's just going to be very limited unless the old PS4 is slowly phased out.

To be fair... they are a business. They DO want you to buy another one (this gen is profitable on the hardware front).

That said - they aren't forcing you.

They are splitting the PS4 into 2 SKUs. A cheaper HD version, and a more expensive UHD one.

Similiar to how Microsoft breaks the Surface Pro into multiple versions. There is the $500 version with the i3 and the $2000 version with the i7 + 512GB SSD.



Do you guys think there will be a new controller? Well one with a better battery life?



no thanks sony

Well, it seems that a ps4 Plus is happening. What I don't believe is that Sony will put way better hardware in it just for people with a 4k tv. How is the adoption rate for 4k tv's? Most people still have a 1080p tv so who would buy a new ps4? The audience is way too small to have r&d just for a niche market.
In my opinion, if there is really better hardware, you will also see it in 1080p games and then, yes, you will get the same games on the old hardware but they will perform worse.
