I hope the trend of releasing Pro versions of the same console disappears. The only things it does is divide the userbase and cause buyer's remorse.
How does it divide the userbase? And no, buyer's remorse is objectively not the only thing it does. There is a big market for it and it's not taking away anything from the original console you bought, which will be supported for well over 10 years anyway. On the contrary, as someone who will likely skip the Pro again, I'm hopeful this move would encourage more developers to actually take full advantage of the base hardware instead of throwing more pixels at me and calling it "next gen visuals".
People will complain about everything, there will never be a solution that makes everyone happy. As long as the base console remains mandated, I don't see why more options shouldn't be welcome by everyone. They will cost more and not detract from what you paid for a year(s) prior. The next thing you guys will suggest is that consoles and games should never get pricedrops/deals because those too will cause buyer's remorse. Just enjoy what you paid for and let others enjoy other options. To wish against the existence of an option that will make a lot of people happy is something I'll never understand. Why even stop here? Start hoping PC manufacturers will also quit introducing new parts frequently, because those can make some of us remorseful/jealous in a never-ending loop of remorse and jealousy.
About time we accepted that technology is ever evolving.Last edited by Kyuu - on 18 March 2023
