What if sony releases a UHD bluray external drive for $50? Has anyone thought of that possibility?

Sat around fall 2017, they drop the PS4pro to $299 and release a UHD bluray external drive for $50 making it optional for those that want to use the console as a UHD player be able to buy in.

And say said drive also works with the ogPS4/PS4s?

I think thats what people don't get about this whole UHD movie nonsense, its something sony could easily add in if they wanted to and still make money from those that want to use it.

absolutly YES.
sony is an stupid for not put UHD blu rays on ps4 slim and ps4 pro.
they put CD on ps1, DVD on ps2 and blu ray on ps3 to win the battle of HD-DVD toshiba. i don´t understand why new models of ps4 not has blu ray 4k.
they are part of this plataform and sony is interested in sell blu rays 4K but they didn´t put on ps4 new models. microsoft has made a good choice putting in the xbox one slim.

I can't understand how Sony made such a mustake.



I'm going to ask the same question here that I did on Gaf. People still use bluray for movies? >.>

That is a good idea.

Had Sony made the Pro even $500 and added 4GB of RAM and 4K UHD support, I think the long term impact would have been greater.                                    

At $499 this device is dead. Hitting $399 was the best possibile solution for Pro.

Sadly, you will be wrong.

Maybe.

II hope I am wrong!

I think like another poster said, it will really be the game software that determines the console sales. Sony not only has tons of 3rd party exclusives (at least not on X1), they have maretting deals with big games and, and their 1st party appear more embedded into this Gen.

Sony are fine

Its not like the ps4 has a 20 million lead or anything...

Worldwide, PS4 will dominate, but it is close here in the US. I want Ps4 to win here too.

Xbox brand is the strongest in the US, Xbox 360 even beat the Wii in terms of sales last gen. Thankfully US sales didn't reflect worldwide sales.



A handheld gamer only (for now).

Well, there are plenty of TV shows and movies in 1080P, but very little, if any, in 4k. That is why discs are important for UHD Blu-ray.

I do. I even get CDs when I buy music, and I only buy physical games.



Soo my amazon chart is wrong? Quz it says ps4 is no2 for many WEEKS.

Sony is absolutely crushing xbox.

I think sony did the right thing. UHD BR is not something that enough people use to warranting hiking the price of the console for everyone. And sony would know being that if online they know how many people are using the console to watch movies.

But as I sad before, its also something that they could easily support later without changing anything. Just make an external drive for it and keep the cost of entry low. Then let those that want it pay extra for it. Really don't se what the problem is.

This whole UHD thing is not even nearly as relevant as the PS3 having a blu-ray drive was. Its only a big deal now cause its ONE thing MS can say they have that the PS4 doesn't. But its really nothing though.
