    Looking to sell my PS4 Pro on firmware 3.70 because I am banking on the PS5 supporting PS4 titles.

    Just wanted to get an idea on what a good price might be? I actually have another PS4 Pro on 6.50 too.

    Debating on which to sell as I think it might be better to keep the 3.70 just in case no PS4 BC and sell the 6.50 as the 3.70 value will only go up.

    Thoughts?

    b/c its a pro I'd say around $500 and if you can provide a bigger HD than 1TB even more profit for ya

    In UK <=5.05 pros sell for £300-350 GBP...

    Whereas new sealed old stock pros are £250 (CUH-7002B)...

    You can't change the hard-drive on 3.70 because there was never a full install 3.70 firmware ever released as far as I know.

    What do you think the chance is that the PS5 will play PS4 games too?
    Are you saying older pros are worth less?

    Kinda depends on supply and demand, the pro can go for around up to like $450 USD, kinda depends on who is willing to pay for it, but it is not hard to sell.

    So what do you think the chance is that the PS5 will play PS4 games too? That is my main question at this point sell or one both?
    Can not really decided if I should sell the 3.70 PS4Pro for extra $$$$ or sell the 6.50 PS4Pro and current market value.

    No idea though, suck if someone gives you misleading information, depends on what you want to do with those two PS4, play online or stay at 3.70, obviously, the lower firmware has a higher value.

    Just think how many PS4/PS4Pros will dump on ebay if Sony confirmed PS5 plays PS4 games? Best to sell now.
    Hacked PS4/Pros just allow you to play PS4 game backups and emulators correct?

    Not that many TBH. PS4 emulated might even more be tightly secured than the existing hackable hardware (we know 6.51 is still hacked in private).

    PS4 EOL won’t be for years until after PS5 releases, and then if we are lucky we will see a new hack making a huge library of games available, but that exploit may still be relevant to PS5, so again may not release.

    If Sony cuts the price of the PS4 when PS5 comes out then the second hand value will drop.

    If PS5 doesn’t play PS4 games, then the price of the PS4 will remain reasonably high as it’s still relevant.

    Either way you asked about the chances PS5 can play PS4: no one knows.

    Right now PS4’s on 5.05 are golden, might be worth selling one now depending if you want PSN and new games or 5.05 backups and homebrew.

    Its way too early to be selling a ps4 for a ps5, I mean as of now its like selling something over a rumor. Sure its coming in the future but we don't know anything about it officially. The only hope for ps5 official news is E3 or maybe Sony's Direct Stream don't get false hype theories from youtubers or any type of click-bait media.

    i would rather save money for a good pc, nowdays there aren't any exclusive worth to buy a console anymore,(All except Nintendo's console.) everythings run smoother on PC mustard race.

    Don't forget that games are far cheaper and online free.

    "we know 6.51...."? Can you prove your claim(text)? maybe you messed up the numbers. :)

    A pro is only worth more at this time. When a ps5 launches it value will be diminished plus in the future they're will be a newer exploit that works on all firmwares like always happens with every system and by then it value will be less then half what it is now. So if you're trying to sell it for its value you would have to sell it now because value will only be going down instead of up.

    I don't understand, the picture of devkit has something to do with the kernel exploit?

    Perhaps he meant that someone had written some 6.51 string on twitter, but we should not forget that it was a random string that was not confirmed by anyone trusted.

    for example, I will write here:
    r123456 / release_branches / release_06.510 Mar 19 2019 99:88:77 amd64

    r133333 / release_branches / release_06.690 Mar 20 2019 69:69:69 amd64

    does that mean it's a kernel exploit?

    The SCE page says:
    A hacker Tweeted a 5.55 kernel string.
    A hacker Tweeted a 6.20 kernel string.
    A hacker Tweeted a 6.50 kernel string.

    which is right, there is not this:
    A random kid Tweeted a random 6.51 kernel string.
    A animal Tweeted a random 6.51 kernel string.

    it is important to read the facts :) So, as I thought, no official confirmation kernel exploit for 6.51 ... which does not confirm anything, but nothing refutes ... so wait :) we have a lot of time.

    @IdontHavePS4 MrNiato is not a random animal, he is trusted.

    Chill out.

    MrNiato is trustworthy, but as I wrote, he never confirmed anything ... since he has a dev kit, it can't be considered a kernel exploit.
