    I don't have one, actually (my girlfriend does) =] and I was under the impression that the framerates were far more stable on the ps4pro. This isn't true? bummer. And as long as it's not bad upscaling, it's better than the TV doing it. Though my receiver might do a better job of it than the ps4 pro...who knows.

    VR for my phone is brilliant, at least for por...tion of games. a portion of games. yes. *cough* is ps4 VR that terrible? Or do you just not like VR at all?

    Anywho, HDR is available on both, so there's not benefit there. and the ps4 pro has heating problems, so that's a negative. I'm lukewarm on it, but I'd rather get a limited edition ps4 pro than a ps4 slim. Maybe one of these days.

    Or kinda purple, according to nintendo, circa 2001:

    Dude nice case! I am a real sucker for white electronics.

    no lol

    Anyways, you can probably get your PS4 running faster if you switch to a solid state drive. Sure you won't have the boosted 4K capable stuff and more powerful processor but its a step.

    Ps4 pro running games at 20fps because lazy developers and Sony's technical mandate saying the pro can't run games faster than a vanilla ps4. :nayps3:

    I'm more annoyed and upset that Sony markets the system as some kind of ultimate gaming machine, but then the standard ps4 can't even handle any of the games it has at 1080p internally, and nothing on the system yet actually runs at 60 frames per second. And because Sony is as imbecillically short-sighted as it is, made a technical Manager that the ps4 pro can't run games faster than the standard one. As a result, many games for the ps4 are running worse on the pro. And as much as Sony swears up and down how it's a 4K machine, nothing about it can even attempt to handle native 4K, let alone at 60fps.

    It's like thanks to Sony, this console generation is somehow cowed into thinking gaming at 20-30fps is somehow okay. And I can't accept that.

    Yet even with this and the many faults evidenced at the ps4 talk on 33c3, Sony still sells these things for no other reason than because it's not Microsoft. As someone that has been repeatedly burned by Sony's shoddy build quality for years upon years, so much of it comes off to me as Sony just showing off how many ways they can screw up and still make money, hand over fist. :ninja:

    In the other hand, my white hard plastic Wii U console is still as white as the hard plastic on the gamepad itself.
    I suppose they will use hard plastic for the console.

    The Glacier White PS4 now utilizes state-of-the-art dirt absorption technology to show all blemishes and dirt marks inflicted upon the console!
