Oh its happening. They are going to let MS have holiday 2017 and let them toot their little horn. Only to follow up with the PS5 as mentioned earlier holiday 2018. They will make sure its more powerful (slightly) and most likely include a 4k player as well with it. Its a game now. I could see MS pulling a Sony with the Pro. Answer back with a Scorpio "refresh" with a bit more oomph to counter PS5.

At the present time AMD, Sony and Microsoft game consoles can not use the X-86 CPUs and GCN GPU with/for commercial media that needs DRM. They have to use ARM Trustzone to create a Trusted Execution Environment. Only games and non commercial media can use the X-86 cpu and GCN GPU at the present time.

Masaaki Tsuruta, EVP, Technology Platform and CTO, Sony Computer Entertainment has revealed the roadmap regarding future Playstation technology.
Some of the technology mentioned has to support 300FPS and 8K video. A Sony technology VP mentioned 4K TVs with glassless 3D that requires multiple video streams and at the same time mentions that this requires stacked memory.

The next PS4/PS5 is coming in 2019 according to efficientgaming.eu (next power tier) which is 1 year after AMD releases the Navi GPU with stacked memory @ 7nm. Not mentioned but likely it's also going to have Zen CPUs. Not mentioned but I suspect it will fully support HSAIL and will also mimic the ARM trustzone Trusted Execution Environment which could then support glassless 3D and 4K VR for commercial media using all hardware not just the ARM block.

I think there's only one option. At least, the only one I know of, and the one I'm going to use once my backup is done, is here.

Thank you sir! Picked up Trackmania Turbo, Tales from the Borderlands, and the base Star Wars Battlefront game. Good sale prices plus 10% off, couldn't resist.

Anything for Titanfall 2 or Battlefield 1? At work right now an all game sites are blocked.

I picked them up for half price at BestBuy.com yesterday to use with my coming PS4 pro. But I broke my rule about disc games. So if they have the digital versions are on sale I would just purchase those and return the discs to bestBuy.

Oh..

I remember there were the same firmware number. But 2 different file sizes. They must have changed it. I think before they implemented the backup and restore feature.

@aaronwt

those 2 games are not listed

Just a quick note for anyone thinking of upgrading to PS4PRO, yet runs only a 1080p projector.

For me this this was a worthwhile upgrade.

I was a little skeptical about whether or not this would make a difference, but it definitely did.
BF1 is my main game at the moment and everything looks sharper and more detailed. I'm not sure if this would be AS noticeable on 1080 TV, but certainly on a 120" screen it looks nicer.

Sweet!!! With a 20% off code I got off Ebay tonight I just purchased Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Ratchet and Clank, and the BF1 Season Premium pass for $116. To play on the PS4 Pro.

WIth the current sale prices and the 20% off code it made for a great deal.

Now I can return the Titanfall2 and BF1 discs I ordered from BestBuy. And best of all I don't need to mess with any discs.

Nex Machina: Housemarque's next game

Announce trailer:
Gameplay 1080p/60:

Looks kinda like a fusion of Alienation and Resogun.

I love Housemarque games... but this seems a little retread to me? I am sure by the time it comes out I will be hyped for it tho.
