— We are going to discuss the SONY & XBOX mid-console life machines the good, the bad & the confusing..

The Unveiling of SONY’s ‘PS4 Pro’ at Playstation MeetingThe Specs and pricing

Vladz apologies in advance… not hating here but have to acknowledge… Did SONY unveiled the PS4 Pro with the softest announcement ever I’m sure it’ll come off like I’m sounding like a Xbox fanboy but I just expected SONY’s announcers to more impressive and powerful, but that is just me.

No 4K Blu-ray. Genius!!……. or bad idea?

      1. Why PS4 Pro Doesn’t Have a 4K Blu-Ray Player “We see a trend on video towards streaming.” For convenience since a lot of us have moved to being digital consumers of games & movies, but 4K needs bandwidth and if you are showing off that new 4K HDR TV you should have the best, uncompressed unbuffered source and that is a 4K Blu-ray.
        1. Speed: What Is the Required Internet Speed for Streaming?

SONY to offer 4k HDR updates for their games, but… 3rd Party Publishers may decide to charge for upgrades

Xbox One or Sony Pro?

      1. 6 Reasons To Buy An ‘Xbox One S’ Instead Of A ‘PS4 Pro’
        1. New Third-Party Xbox One App Nesbox Lets You Play Old Nintendo And SEGA Games
        2. No Skyrim or Fallout Mods on until Sony will allow us to offer proper mod support for PS4, that content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PlayStation 4 will not be available.”

Online play: Microsoft has released the results of an independent study that claims Xbox Live is generally faster and more reliable than PlayStation Network.

      1. Your rep: If negative feedback piles up, you could end up with a “Needs work” reputation.

Games on PS4 PRO: Mass Effect Andromeda according to Bioware their game  will not run any different on the PS4 Pro compared to the PS4.

      1. Mass Effect’s Andromeda will have two main characters (existing at the same time)

The REAL reason we have a PS4 PRO and Xbox One S In a bid to be more like PC, the consoles are slowly losing their identity


Windows 10

    1. XBOX Play Anywhere
      1. Microsoft – I’m probably not the average household, the faq on Xbox’s site could be a little clearer.  
      2. Fix your business model and give the same discounts to digital consumers
    2. More on Halo 5 forge – It is 4k and has an awesome online arena mode
      1. Back on Ep 316 we talked about Halo 5 Forge on PC, well I’ve downloaded it to both my PCs and here is my initial thoughts:


Get BioShock Remastered for FREE for PC gamers to go from BioShock and BioShock 2 to BioShock: The Collection without having to pay extra for them. — Available today but only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On Windows PC, the remastered games won’t be available until Sept. 15, according to Steam.
