    Our current gen consoles are a joke. They need to catch up to the master pc race. Ps4 and Xbox 1 are old news.

    Holiday season 2019 is a possibility too. Rockstar is definitely hinting at PS5 with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. I bet they follow the GTA V route and release on PS4/XB1, then later on PS5/XB2, then later still on PC.

    I'd actually be pretty happy to trade in my PS4 toward a PS5 as long as it has backward compatibility. PS4 Pro feels like a half-upgrade at best. 30 FPS to 45. Please Sony, first and foremost PS5 needs to deliver 1080p60 in modern games before it aims for more lofty resolutions.

    PMSL Nintendo can't even be considered the same league as the ps4/xbx1. Yet again Nintendo release a shit system with a gimmick and who gives a crap about it's gimmicks.... anyone talking about how great it is...... Yea no one.

    And why people are talking about ps5.... we all know Sony keep it's system on the market for as long as it can, there's plenty of life in this gen.

    As of now, Microsoft only sold 10-15 million Xbox more than Switch.

    the current consoles are pathetic and were from the start.

    no they can't any games that report that are usually upscaling the video output to 4k but are rendering at low resolutions, in some cases much lower resolutions.

    first for talking CPU power the APU used in the current consoles are based on an anemic processors specifically for tablets, it sucks then and it sucks now.


    when it comes to GPUs the R7 260X released in March of 2013, provides more performance than the PS4 and the Radeon R7 250X is faster than what's in the Xbox One.


    suffice to say it was so pathetic that they had to do a halfstep generation with the PS4 pro and Xbox One X


    but CPU wise even those are only slightly clocked up and GPU wise the PS4 Pro can perform around the level of a RX 470 with optimizations and the xbox one x is in a better position offering 6 Tflops of power, to put into perspective a GTX 1070 offers 6.46 Tflops of power but due to the way memory is structured and optimizations it reportedly performs at about GTX1080 levels.

    you might say what about optimizations, yes that is currently why they do half as good as they currently do but I'd rather them have all the power and let devs spend more time on their games rather than 1/4 to 1/2 the time optimizing.

    if we look at the original Xbox for example its CPU was Pentium 3 Celeron-based and a high-end CPU was the Pentium 4 at the time.
    it performed about half as good.
    while the GPU was comparable to the high-end GPU of its time the GeForce 3

    notice when the Xbox one and PS4 were released the CPU was not about half as powerful as a i7 5960X and they certainly did not have the equivalent of a GTX 1080 Ti

    yes they can do that but so can a PC even without a subscription to anything.

    TLDR:
    consoles are fine for what they are but dont pretend they are good and if we are talking performance compariable to PC's this generation we got screwed.

    day one there were reddit threads of $500 PC builds that matched/slightly out performed them.

    and bloodborne runs at 20 fps
    nah, you have a long long way of improvements before you can say you have legit 4k
    it won't be even fully exploited next gen, nevermind this gen
    the ps4pro just doesn't cut it if you are looking at 2020.

    Indeed, but they have their problems. Might not be the most impressive machine if they went with those apus. I love ryzen, but vega was such a huge dissapointment.

    It's not like the PS4 is or was an impressive machine as far as the hardware goes. Long gone are the times when consoles were more than underpowered PCs.

    Imagine spending a premium for the enhanced top tier version of a current gen console so the premiere game of the elite version of the system runs at a "solid 30 fps" as if that is a positive note
    You talked about cancerous, that's the perfect word indeed. Lacking self awareness in what you yourself just typed is also fitting here. Try to read it again out loud.

    $350 is a premium? haha imagine spending over $1000 on a PC that doesn't have games that look as good as Horizon Zero Dawn or Uncharted 4 or God Of War produced on a $350 machine.

    Delusional.

    Good, last years was awful. A ton of people paid to watch a couple dudes sit on a couch onstage and all they did was shoot the shit for an hour and they announced like 1 game. Unbelievable.

    You're joking, right? Cinematic effects are cool and all, but they can only do so much to distract from the actual quality of textures. Always low-mid on consoles. PS4 has some really fun singleplayer titles, but if we're comparing looks then PC is the undisputed winner. Max textures and effects quality at 60+ FPS makes a world of difference in any game.

    And.... I don't give a crap how many consoles sell.

    It's been proven when Nintendo sell shit loads, they never get the great third party support and Nintendo keep promising to improve, but but never happens because they never provide the hardware for them to run its new titles and it takes them longer to dumb it down hence why Nintendo always get the games later after it's already been released on the other systems.

    I only care about the games, as long as the console has the quality titles I play then who cares if the console sold less units than another system.

    All I can say is that since the n64 Nintendo have got worse and when it gets third party titles it's either when nintendont release it's next gen or years after it first released and is an inferior port.
     
  20. This reassures PS5 will likely be announced in 2019 and makes buying now a PS4 or a PS4 Pro a tad pointless. Might as well wait for a price drop.
