    well becuase all consoles addons were sucefully right? im seeing sega 32x all again, i wonder if they can make it an addon or if you need an enterely new console becuase if stuff starts coming out for 4.5 only alot of people will be pissed, it can be like the new 3ds but atleast the new 3ds exclusive stuff is tiny to noone lol.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    an acessory? how they would implement it? it's not like theese consoles can be open or got ports that connect with the board anymore
    the 32x not only needed to be sitted between the game and the console, but needed to connect to video output.
    and i doubt they could use a usb accessory...

    i really think its a new version of the console.. and i put my cents on a slim version.
    ps1 took 5 years to get a slim version
    ps2 took 4 years
    psp new versions took 3 years +1 +1 +2
    ps3 took 3 years and another 3 for yet another slimmer version

    ps4 just did 2 years, it makes sense we get this new (slim) version the next year...

    the thing is the slim did not have a more advanced processor capable of doing exclusive stuff, heck noone of those did any exclusive stuff besides new desing and lighter version and such.

    microsoft is doing it too. They might as well have called it the ps5 lol. Whats the difference between ps3 and ps4? Better processor and graphics card,they are doing the same thing and calling it ps4.5 what a joke.

    I just think they should hold out and wait 2 years to release the ps5. This is a slap to the face to people that bought the ps4 lol.

    if this is what gaming has become then i think its time to migrate to PC. PC does this too but if your going to screw with consoles like this you might as well go for PC.

    if it ends up being like the new 3ds barely any comercial games will be made exclusively for that updated console so lets wait and see, if the console comes out and only gets like 3 or 4 exclusive games then its crap since i doubt manny games will be made in 4k to being with due to recources probably only the few 1st party AAA ones with luck.

    Probably fake. With this in mind they'd just end up turning the pick up & play home consoles into PCs where you can upgrade its hardware.

    I have a gaming PC what I was trying to say to @pedro702 is that this is exactly what PC gaming is when I compared ps3 to ps4. They release the same games and one of them can produce them at a slightly higher fps and better resolution,the reason pc gaming is cheaper is because you can switch out parts. With the ps4.5 they basically make your ps4 obsolete but they can use the excuse that "It's still a ps4" all it is is a marketing scam to take advantage of the 99% of consumers that are not tech savy.

    N3DS is a similar dilemma,look what happens when you tell someone here the n3ds is nintendo taking advantage(I own a n3dsXL btw) you face endless rage from the people that bought the n3ds. Instead of getting mad at nintendo they get mad at you for mentioning the obvious.

    I saw it announced on yahoo.com so I am pretty sure it is not fake unfortunately.

    Well this is honestly better than the n3ds because at least they update the graphics/processor to handle higher resolution. With the n3ds they use the exact SAME resolution so it is even more of a scam to be honest. I own a n3ds and was a bit disappointed by how much hype it gets on here when it is essentially a DSi for the 3ds.

    Consoles should stay in the pick up and play market. ppl buy them for their ease of use not for the upgradable parts and revisions and we know that a game works out of the box. and that we can stick with said hardware for a good 6/10 years.

    Minimum 4-5 years. It hasn't even been 3 years and they already want to get more money out of the consumer. Imagine places like latin america where the average income is 10k USD a YEAR and the console cost 1k USD. This is a complete slap to the face.

    like i said if this console get out and on the end of its life cycle only very few games will even support 4k then its not worth it, i got the new 3ds just becuase of the better 3d, my original 3ds made my eyes hurt with 3d not for his possible exclusive library that is like 1 game and afew more frames on some random games.

    What makes a console its his library, if the games with exclusive 4k res and features for the ps4.5 are far and between then no one is loosing much by staying with the original ps4.
