Quote :
"I’m not a big fan of Xbox One and a half. If we’re going to move forward, I want to move forward in big numbers," Spencer said. "I don’t know anything about any of the rumors that are out there, but I can understand other teams’ motivations to do that. For us, our box is doing well. It performs, it’s reliable, the servers are doing well. If we’re going to go forward with anything, like I said, I want it to be a really substantial change for people – an upgrade."

Meanwhile, there are currently rumors of a PS4 "and a half" referred to as PS4K (seriously.) It's supposed to handle VR better with some form of 4k output (probably to watch movies in 4k quality.) Either way, if Sony goes through with such an iteration, then I'm done with Sony as well.

PS4K is going to leave a lot of PS4 owners feeling alienated.

If Sony does it, I'm not buying another PlayStation from them.

The PS4 is still lacking any major GREAT exclusive. It has, maybe, 1 (Bloodborne), since 2013. It's at the point where I feel like I wasted some good money that could've gone elsewhere.

Wait a minute, PS4 is a gaming console?

Yeah, if you actually buy and play games for it.

PS4K will flop if it's built on an upgrade in terms of being optimized for 4K tv's. 4k isn't mainstream yet.

I don't think 4K will be mainstream in a very long time. The only way it will become the standard is when companies decide to discontinue 1080p TVs. But they sell like a shit load of money, so companies would have to be stupid to stop selling 1080p TVs now. Besides, 4K looks amazing and all, but if you never cared about owning one of the best TVs out there then you're not going to care about 4K that much either. 1080p still looks fucking good. If you don't plan of having a theater-like set up in your house, then there is really no point in 4K all that much.
