Forums - Sales Discussion - I'm afraid Sony made a mistake not including UHD Blu-ray. And...

Did Sony make mistakes mistakes with the new Ps4 models?

Yes. 20 39.22%
 
No. 31 60.78%
 
Total:51

Sadly, it looks like Xbox will take back America. Ps4 won last month, but I think the victories will stop there. It looks like Xbox One S is winning on Amazon. It seems that the UHD Blu-ray has helped Xbox tremendously.

Also, it was a mistake, in my opinion, to make the new Ps4 models look so plain. The original Ps4 looked futuristic and sleek. Now the Xbox looks better than the PS4.

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

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

Meh, games are still the defining factor of a gaming console. But i agree if you say an UHD bluray player will make a gaming console a better entertainment device.



Sadly, you will be wrong.

Maybe.



I thnk long term the Pro may not be good. I wanted Pro to be a real premium product, like Sonys ES series devices, but instead it is just a minor upgrade that is great for first time buyers, but not so much for core gamers.

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. Now I feel they have to release a Pro 2 in three more years, and not miss step again. At this point they can't just shoehorn a little more RAM and UHD BR support into a 7100 series Pro.

It will be very interesting to see how they do versus the rebranded Xbox division nt holiday.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

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



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.

II hope I am wrong!



If the people choose Xbox One S over PS4 or PS4 Pro SOLELY for Video Playback reasons then they are basically choosing Movies Resolution > Game Resolution (the usual 900p vs 1080p and even bigger gap between XB1 and PS4 Pro)

It's called GAMING CONSOLE I thought? I mean if you love Xbox exclusives, then surely you are going for Xbox, but choosing Blu-Ray quality over GAMES Quality, WHAT?!

I think the Pro would have been just premium enough if they added that 4k blu-ray.
