So all these rumors about an updated PS4, known as the PS4k or PS4.5, have really started gaining traction. Everyone remembers the 360 and PS3 had updated hardware, but this seems to be of a different level. Even XB1 has had rumors about a similar upgrade coming out (although Phil Spenser said he’s not shipping a screwdriver with every XB1, meaning it wont be modular).
Now from what I can tell, the XB1 might be trying to catch the PS4 in power and the PS4k seems to be geared toward the PSVR (which personally I think is going to bomb) which leaves people who already have these systems with some important decisions to make.
How do you feel about these rumors? If they end up being true what would these systems need to have to persuade you to either Upgrade or pick up one?
Personally I don’t have a 4k TV and think the PSVR is going to bomb, plus I don’t think the PS4k will be cheap and if it is, it won’t be native 4k, just up-scaling.
As for the XB1, unless it can hold a steady 1080/60 FPS MINIMUM then I don’t need to waste money upgrading the one I already have.
