Nope, wont buy.

I love Sony. I love Playstation. But i dont support the idea of upgradeable consoles, or 0.5 consoles mid gen.

And to be clear, im not cheap at all. But this is in my opinion some bullshit if true, which as of right now it is nothing more than a rumor.

It goes against the nature of consoles, which is the standardize (does this word exist? LOL) of every unit for all users to ease the process of developing games.

I would prefer to pay a high price up front from the launch (600-800$) and keep the same unit for 6 years, than paying 400$ and then 3 years later have a beefed up version of the same console for whatever price.

I play on consoles because it is a straight forward platform, i dont like PC and will never have a gaming rig. Unless the videogames panorama change drastically and HAVE to buy a PC in order to keep playing (streaming games for example).

EDIT: If there is in fact a new version of the Ps4 with an HDMI 2.0 and some other improvements not relative to the videogame processing specs, i wouldnt mind at all.

So you would buy if it has less features than indicated from the "leaks"?



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

i like the idea that consoles have more frequent but smaller hardware revisions with forward/backwards compatibility.

that said,.. no i will not upgrade. not for a few more frames per second.

i will upgrade probably only once i have to which i still expect will be at least 6 years between required upgrades to have access to the most recent software. but when i do i'll be very happy to have access to my previously purchased games and to not have to wait a year or longer for developers to "learn" next generation hardware and actually release a game for it.

No!

I wouldnt buy it either. But i wouldnt pissed off with Sony if the update is just for UHD support for movies. Thats fine for me.

The Xbox 360 did this with the revised HDMI version of the console. These types of revisions are not necesarily bad.

But if you are going to mess with the internal specs, now THAT would piss me off.



I am not upgrading my PS4 for a newer model, Im not upgrading to NX from my Wii U, and I still have my launch 3DS. Gaming is becoming a rather expensive hobby these days and new hardware or revisions every few years is becoming a bit silly. I may actually skip the next gen and play as much of the current gen as poss.



Other,... I don't know
But anyway right now I don't think I like this idea. Yeah, I like better performance I salute better graphics etc. I have money for all that console stuff, but I don't like the idea of separating the userbase, and it might and will anger the fans (at least a part of it) and can split them. If u decided to build up and to sell this configuration in 2013 then pls continue to fully support it in 2016. I already have a PC. I can easily jump back to better performance and visuals if console business becomes PC-like with upgrades, with a bunch of indies and p2ps with microtransactions etc. I understand that VR needs more power, but anyway I don't like that idea. OK, will see what will come of it all.

Ps4 owner, don't really know what I'd do if it happened, I'll be honest I'm slightly annoyed at the whole thing, I bought my ps4 launch day and I've been perfectly happy with it, there's nothing wrong with its performance and it'll be fine for the next 4-5 years. But now Sony (who have been really good with their customers) are sort of shitting on all the 39million owners that are now going to own the lower spec model through none of their choice. Sony should announce a trade back deal in which you trade your own ps4 back and get the "ps4k" for £100-£150.

I'm a Wii U and PC owner and gamer and no, I'm not interested in PS4K.

But, as I said on another of these PS4K/PS4.5 threads, if fpeople start selling their PS4s to buy the new ones, I wouldn't mind getting one of those used models if the price is right. After all, I don't have a 4K TV and I don't have a problem if the games run at 1080 or 900p and 30fps as long as that doesn't affect the gameplay in any meaningful way.

I don't agree on the ''Sony shitting on all the 40M owners''; a new SKU is a plus, another option for the ones who don't own the console yet, and for the ones who are ready to get their second, more powerful PS4;  also, 3 years is not a very very short time, it's roughly half of the console current generation, and a more powerful PS4 will keep multiplatform games more close to the PC version as visual quality.  The exclusive games ? They will look stellar, but again you will play the same games on the previous model, just less stellar, not a big deal; believe me, most of casual gamers couldn't care less if they have the 1st model, now, and most of casual gamers will buy the new model when it will be cheaper; nothing will change, just a shorter life cycle for every new SKU, 3 years I would say. I like this if you ask me.

I haven't bought a PS4 yet, but Yes. PS4k. All the way.

Ideally this would also be enabled by an add on versus people having to replace their consoles entirely but I don't think the PS4 was made with a mid gen upgrade in mind.



I own a PS4 since August of last year, and knowing how hard it was to save money for it, I'm kinda on the fence. I'd like to know if there will be compatibility issues with other friends who still has the original console, plus those issues from games not working with one console or another.
