Will people with normal PS4s be able to play with PS4K users?

that day is not far when consoles will have replaceable hardware (cpu, ram, gpu). When that happens, it will be nothing but a portable laptop optimized for gaming.

That's exactly what's going to happen though, lower framerate and lower res will happen to PS4 games once devs move onto PS4K dev kits. I never said devs are going to stop making games for it, the games that will be on it will just be considerably shittier compared to the PS4K version is what I'm saying.
What arko said.

Think about it, people will get mad and stuff when their console will be struggling to run a game properly and PS4k will be running it easily, and at better frame rates on the same resolution. They could very well feel cheated since they, not so long ago, had the most powerful console, but not anymore. I just feel like this could ruin Sony's fan base or something. Hope I'm wrong.

But like you said, can't really make judgments now. Will just have to wait and see what Sony does with it. Plus, now I'm conflicted. Whether to buy PS4 or wait for PS4K. :p

Too early to say this; but if games are "really" downgraded by which I mean not performing at their best on a sub-4K screen this will backfire..but I really think if a game performs the same on both platforms; it wont effect Sony much.
But they are being stupid by not commenting on this issue yet. Their media and marketing should be on top of this- there is substantial nervousness among users and players currently


Well, I said "suffer to an extent". Not that the inferior version would be shit. But it just enforces my other point: the upgraded version might not be meaningful/significant enough to make the switch to PS4K as the extra horsepower will not be fully utilized on games running on both platforms. New comers will be getting the better deal if the price is right which won't sit well with the early adopters.

The analogy with PC version also does not work. Most console gamers are indifferent to the fact that PC can provide a better experience because its just not the ecosystem they want to adapt. But PS4K is another console, infact an upgraded version of what they already purchased, hoping to run games which will likely provide a superior experience on the upgraded console now.
I am in the same boat as you..I recently sold the ps4 as I was moving to new room and didnt wanted to carry it to another place...I am waiting for june, but I do have access to ps4 meanwhile at uni

I dont think consoles could go to replaceable hardware such as cpu/gpu/ram ..that would defeat the purpose of the console industry.
currently there are only three things which sell a console : 1) Exclusives 2) Price 3) Convenience

since point 3 and 2 are dropping rapidly every technological step, only exclusives remain.

Neo and Morpheus, eh? Someone at Sony is a huge Matrix fan :hah:

I do have some concerns regarding this new info, though. If games will run at a higher frame rate on NEO, that doesn't bode well for PS4-NEO multiplayer working within the same ecosystem. Someone playing at 60fps would obviously be at an advantage over someone playing at 30fps.

I'm sure developers are going to take this into consideration. They can reduce graphical details on current PS4 to increase framerate for multiplayer.

Sony was waiting for you to buy current PS4 before releasing the upgraded version :p. Think of this upgraded PS4 as collector edition and get it before [MENTION=6946]amaga[/MENTION] :wink2:
