For once, it seems Sony left Horizon to die and is not hyping up as much as it could. On my Youtube feed I only see videos about Zelda or Mass Effect.

lul what?

It sold 2.6m in two weeks. It's still in the top 20 on Amazon, Mass Effect has slipped way down. Right now, Horizon's legs is close to Zelda's. Won't last forever of course, but Horizon is doing great and your comment is bizarre

That is my perseption based on news and Youtube. I also don´t see it very high on Twitch.tv ( right now it has half the viewers of MEA).

I´m talking about mindshare and influence going foward with the public.

PS4pro cpu jaguar+ 2.1ghz.
Xbox Scorpio cpu jaguar+ 2.3ghz.

Didnt get a ryzen cpu some where hopeing for.

What are the changes done to Jaguar in the Pro?

So what did we find out...?

It's about what those of us who kept our expectations in check expected; very capable for a console, a good chunk more power than the Pro, but isn't the god-killer some dreamed of. 

Overall a good system for power conscious console gamers.

Probably optmisations and small fixes.

I'm actually reading through thread pages right now.  Just didn't know how far back to go.  When as far back as page 14.  Need to go further back.

ME:A has multiplayer. HZD is strictly a singleplayer game, so this is not an apples-to-apples comparison.

He made a comparison so that it looks like both have the same CPU and modifications but Scorpio is only clocked a little bit higher, that's why I'm curious.



Very exciting. They thought of everything. Killer clock speed and memory bandwidth. Vapor chamber cooler in a CE device? 

Architecture drops CPU rendering load by 1/2 on DX12 renders, 60 specific targeted customizations in the GPU pipeline...this is where consoles built to render do more with less than a gaming PC.

Pre-Ordering!



PC I i7 3770K @4.5Ghz I 16GB 2400Mhz I GTX 980Ti FTW

Consoles I PS4 Pro I Xbox One S 2TB I Wii U I Xbox 360 S

$499 is a good price.

4k
Faster loading
BR 4k
Bigger HDD

It is not a hard sell
You can sell your XOne for 199, keep all your games and pay the same price as a Nintendo Switch.

$399 would be insane.

It is a good price for what you're getting, but so is $350 for a Pro. I think $450 should be their target.

I can honestly see either the regular pro or a new pro slim model being sold for $299 by the time scorpio launches.  If it's being sold for $449 or $499 it won't stand a chance.  

 

Microsoft need this to launch at $399. Not sure if that's possible.
