    I saw recently that the beta for the newest firmware has access to the supersample option that is exclusive to ps4 pro systems. The option allows people without 4K tv (Or resolutions) to improve visual quality of games. Though they been testing it to make sure the balance of quality VS performance is primary focus, they acknowledge that some games may suffer performance issues cause of it.

    Most people who have a ps4 pro probably have 4K tv by now to make full use of it or who knows, or the other people who will just come in here to talk about having a pc, but what are your thoughts on this, maybe you still own a less than 4K tv but have a ps4 pro like me, does this interest you? :unsure:

    That is really cool. Hope to see some videos showing off the differences.

    I assume by 2k they mean 1440p? It would be nice if a leader in the tech industry didnt misuse terms unless they actually do mean a real 2k tv.

    I watched the digital foundry' s video and I saw you sacrifice something for supersampling. So... What is the point?!

    I agree. Sony really dropped the ball on this. MS did a MUCH MUCH better job overall. There are only a very small handful of games that gained nothing but improvements.

    I dunno much about video options, but I thought it supposed to make my games look better, the video telling me that not all games will look better? :wtf:

    supersampling as archaic AA method, I guess any modern complex and modern methods were to complicated for sony to handle.

    sorry but none of this shit is worth the extra $200
    i see no real incentive to upgrade to these half gen consoles , not for the extra amount of money they are asking
    especially in the one x case
    and even more especially if you are only going to be using a 1080 display anyways

    Your mom's basement.
    PS4 Pro is still not as good as Xbox One X hardware-wise.

    The problem here is that you're typically using checkerboard rendering to upscale/cheat into 4K, and then scaling back down to 1080. IE a complete joke.

    Wow turns into another fake console war. There Were only two spectrum v commodore (cpc 464 users not included) and nintendo v sega, so lets just have it all there are no bad games just badly made games, my best game ever bombjack or possibly wonderboy in monsterland and thats why punctuation is bad spent a lot a time dodging the law playin them pixels.
