PS4 Pro

So 60 FPS games - the minimum for PSVR - will run at 90 and 90FPS games will run at 120, which will help with potential motion sickness.

Is the PSVR just a headset that works with PS4/Pro? I had assumed it was a separate... thing.

Yep, just an accessory that works with either console.

So, not only do you need to buy a new console but you may need to pay extra to even play some games in 4K.

Waiting for clarification before being irked, some developers have refuted that and said charging isn't an option.

Yeah, turns out you can't charge for patches.

I also take back saying that the main reason to get one for me is increased frame rates in VR - now that I've heard system elements will be sped up, that takes the crown.

As someone that works from their console, PlayStation Network is just an infuriating mess. Things like the store and settings pages - which I need frequent access to - take an age to load, if they even bother to at all. Then there's the woeful download speeds that mean I dread getting sent new builds of games.

Compare that to Xbox, where none of this stuff is an issue, and I honestly wonder why so many people prefer PlayStation...

From my perspective, as someone who 99% of the time just use my Console for gaming with Physical media, its rarely an issue. Occasionally it can be frustrating with its PSN, downloading patches etc but rarely has a 'negative' impact on MP gaming. I do see the odd issue but often these aren't 'negatively impactful'. It certainly doesn't affect a lot of the games I play/want as these are mostly solo 'offline' experiences.

The biggest complaint I have is the lack of external HDD support. I don't want a 'few' of my games accessible with the majority needing to be re-installed and updated just to play them again - it takes away spontaneity - the ability to play any of my games when I want. If I want to return to a game (much more likely if they get patched with HDR and/or pro support - like Last of Us, Infamous etc), it means, I have to decide which current game(s) I can delete to make space to re-install the 'old' game - it can take hours and needs a lot of forward planning.

Obviously their are things that the Playstation offers that are a lot better than MS offers - for example JRPG's. A number of the exclusives appeal a lot more than a lot of MS's - My most anticipated game currently is Horizon: Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4 is my Game of the Year (so far - not that I can see a game replacing it). Also PS is the only console currently that will offer VR - at least a year before MS can and will.

I certainly wouldn't want to pick one or the other but as with most things, each has its strengths and weaknesses. I wouldn't get rid of one or the other myself. I enjoy gaming on both and some aspects of one are better than aspects of the other. Both can 'learn' from each other and improve in certain areas - its not that 1 sided.

I avoid JRPGs like the plague. I only have a PlayStation for work, could easily live without it, though a few of the exclusives and VR are nice personal benefits.

I've mentioned before that I much prefer the Xbox controller as well; my hands are huge and wrapping them around the little DualShocks gives me cramp.

It is pretty one-sided for me as a result, but obviously each to their own.

Just realised my Pro will be arriving this time next week, there's been so little coverage it snuck up on me.
