If you keep flip flopping back and forth like this you are going to go insane. No matter what decision you make (have us make) you will end up regretting it. Your best option is to save your money and wait. Pro will get the inevitable black friday sale, and so will Switch. Just wait until November to make up your mind.


Hey! They got SONY on my amiibo! Wait a minute. Two great gaming tastes that game great together!

Wait at least until the next resupply of the Switch and look at a lot of reviews (when they come out next month) of it in the meantime. avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

So a ps4 pro for 4k tv... lets see, Ark survival in the "pro" runs at 600p 30 fps, the ps4 pro is not 4k native, it scale 1080 p to 4k with a lot of tricks, and it has a bottle neck so big that the extra power on his video card can not be used, so why are you telling me you want this console over a switch? if it is power get a PC!!

Nintendo Switch for me.

I already have a PS4 and I donīt feel any need to buy a Pro, since the games I want work well enough on it.

No, I'm just saying most AAA are rather easy, while a few Nintendo games can be quite hard.

But... a few Sony games can be quite hard, too. :serious face:

I know some are. I just think Nintendo has harder games in general.

Top 50 games as of 2017
Also, I made some music. It's really cool I think.

Since you already have a PS4 and a Wii U, I'd say buy the Switch when it gets a price cut and play Zelda on the Wii U.

Now Playing:

The Witcher 3, FFXIV, Lightning Returns (PC). 
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE (Wii U).
Uncharted 4 (PS4).

If you already have a Wii U and PS4, there's really no reason to get either right now. Unless you plan to get PSVR as well. Then the Pro would be worth the investment. Otherwise, save your money.

Sell your old PS4 get a pro and also get a s/hand Vita for remote play. Then you can play all your ps4 games around the home and garden with Switch beating graphics using the Vita for free and no need to pay out for expensive Switch cartridge games, effectively a 4 terraflop portable. Also get yourself some igrado's or other Grado headphones for when playing on the Vita for incredible sound quality. The Vita also doubles as an extra ps4 controller for additional players.

Keep your wii u for Zelda of course.

As a Vita owner who uses Remote play and still buys Vita games, do not consider this option. The Vita lacks too many buttons and using the touch screen as buttons is a horrible compromise. Some games are unplayable. Games look INCREDIBLE on the small screen but the cons are too much (lag, worse analog sticks, running two consoles just to play one game, etc.)


With that said, unless you're a hardcore Nintendo fan (like me) wait on buying that Switch. Not enough content at launch.

I would say the opposite, do not consider your opinion. However that said I agree about the buttons but I tend to play many games which don't have button problems but clearly there are less on the Vita and sometimes it does cause problems or makes games annoying to control. I'd say the majority are fine though. Are any games unplayable? That seems unfair because you do adapt to using either the front or rear touch pad but it depends on the game.  Some games are better set up for remote play and some even have a Vita friendly setup option. The lag can actually be very low and un-noticable. I've just played super stardust ultra with zero problems. My ps4 is connected via ethernet cable and my router is modern using the fastest wifi speeds to the Vita that it will handle. I am only using the Vita around the house. Analogue sticks are fine. Who cares if it's using two consoles, surely that's the whole point. The main tv is tied up doing something else so what does it matter if the ps4 is being utilised by the Vita for remote play. I don't get that point at all. 

Considering you can play your entire ps4 library on Vita with admittedly some issues with controls for some games, plus the Vita library and a whole load of apps for web browsing, media playback, email etc the versatility and range of games you can play on it is pretty amazing. It will be a long time if ever before the Switch can even approach this level of functionality and range of games.

Stop being cheap and get both, you will be a "real gamer"(tm)

Trade your PS4 for a PS4 Pro, and get a Switch later when it has more games.
