I was so interested in getting this until it was announced that it wouldn't play 4k Blu-rays.... Just ridiculous is doesn't have a 4k br drive.

1 TB? LOL, just pathetic. 2 TB should be the minimum.

Agreed. The Xbox One S that is currently out supports 4K Blu-ray. This is just insanity!

Knowing this makes me hesitant to order one, less future proof until actual next-gen comes out.

Order the xbox one s and save yourself $100 if you want 4K BR.

I probably will trade my PS4 at EbGames while it might be still worth something.

Only getting a 4k TV in 2017, so futureproof myself

Not that compelled to order one really, and I own a 4K TV. All my existing games will run fine so i'm going to wait until they release a special edition, maybe with FF XV.

As far as gaming is concerned, it will be by far the most powerful console for a year.

Project Scorpio: 6 Teraflops (2017 holiday season)
PS4 Pro: 4.2 Teraflops (300% faster than Xbox One S)
PS4: 1.84 Teraflops
XBox One S: 1.4 Teraflops
XBox One: 1.31 Teraflops

After Sony's Network outage yesterday I am even less likely to pick this up. Why in the world should I need to sign into PSN in order to watch Netflix or to access my Plex content is beyond me. If I'm simply playing local content via Plex, I shouldn't even need to have an Internet connection let alone sign into Son'y network. And seeing that it won't play 4K Blurays is the straw that will break this camel's back. Maybe it's time to try out the Xbox instead.

Meh...As long as my original "Fat" PS4 is able to play all the games that will come out for the PS4 Pro then why spend the extra $$$? Might as well just save it towards buying the (eventual) PS5.

Without 4k Blu Ray there's just no incentive for me to upgrade.

The PS4 Pro doesn't support 4K BR so I don't understand this post.

The purpose of the PS4 Pro is to offer better visuals and/or performance over the standard PS4. It will also provide you with a better VR experience if you're into that.

It's ~2.3x the power of the PS4 and over 3x the power of the XB1.
Xbox One Scorpio will be ~40% faster than the PS4 Pro but it releases next year and will most likely be considerably more expensive.

Considering the specs, 499CAD is a pretty good value if you're looking for a mid-gen upgrade. Personally I'm gonna hold onto my PS4 and wait until this drops in price a bit.
