So here it is, the future of games consoles; The PS4 Pro! A marginally more improved variation on what we already own. Ta-da! Observed by world media in a dimly lite convention centre, remarked upon with mild curiosity and audible gasps of feigned indifference for Sony’s largely superfluous reveal. “Please, hold you’re applause. Oh, you are?” But wait it has sharper resolution, more intuitive and frankly convenient interface, purely for the specific accessibility of VR attachment, as well as additional functionality that eclipses the current range of PS4’s available to customers. But to me it’s just a slightly improved PS4. It’s Malibu Stacy, but with a new hat. The PS4.5 if you will. Now I maybe wrong here and this is exactly what consumers are crying out for, but it’s just nothing I’m tremendously excited for. I guess the intention is to consolidate Sony’s already impressive hardware sales with the pertinent streamlined iterations, by reducing the internal components into a more “Slim” exterior, that has been a staple of every generation of Sony consoles. And the fact that it’s an improved variation on what we already have actually makes it a more illustrious contingent, but still fundamentally floored. I just don’t get the point of it?! It’s primary existence, other than retaining further residuals from eager investors, is merely for the purpose of offering greater functionality to the currently vestigial VR auxiliary. Personally I think this has been announced two years too soon. Much of the venerated features seem like applications that gamer’s will be more likely acquainted with in the next couple of years. When more of us own VR headsets and 4k televisions.
I would still require a 4k television if I were to fully appreciate the additional implementations utilised in the PS4.5. And believe me I’d have as much luck convincing my girlfriend that a 4k television was a necessity absent from our lives as much as could entice Kat Dennings to sleep with me just by waving my penis in her face like a windmill. *Apologies to anyone offended by the rather descriptive yet vulgar analogy* I’m not saying that people shouldn’t consider buying the vaguely improved device, but besides superficial augmentation and the prospective innovation of VR there seems little point in owning one. “It’s like a PS4, but shinier” appears to be the incentive. But considering that my PS4 still works fine, I’m not sure how enticing a new hat really is?
What do you think of the PS4.5? Sorry, PS4 Pro? Let me know in the comments below. Cheers.
