When I was playing Final Fantasy 14 online back in March, it was starting to makes really unhealthy noises. When the machine was in standby mode, it would start beeping for no reason and whenever I had FF on, the fans would be going at their max RPM, making so much bloody noise. For xmas and my birthday, my folks got me a new LG 43" 4K HDR TV, which was solely for use with my consoles and PC. I had always planned to get a PS4 Pro down the line, but didn't expect things to happen so soon. I was really pleased that I was able to get another Glacier White console and controller, as I don't like the black units. I was really lucky that my old PS4 still worked well enough for me to do a data transfer/hard disc copy to my PS4 Pro. Once I had my accounts sorted, I decided to download a load of games I had bought years ago and never got in to. I ended up falling in love with The Witcher 3, which looks so amazing in 4k with the HDR. I've been playing a number of single player RPG's, as I was too skint to pay for my Final Fantasy subscription, while paying my folks back for the PS4 Pro. I've also managed to complete the main storyline from "Horizon - Zero Dawn" , which is another game that really benefits from the higher power specs of the Pro. I been playing Final Fantasy 14 again and with the option for 4k and better detail, it is like a totally different game. I also treated myself to Final Fantasy 15 - Royal Edition and my god, it is a beautiful game. For the last couple of months I have had the Pro, I have actually been buying "new" games again, via the PSN Store and buying "boxed" games off Game's website, which is usually cheaper than buying the digital version more often than not. Also with the PS4 Pro having a faster and bigger , HD of 1TB, I have been able to store more games on my main account. What I really like is, even if the game is not running in 4k, you get the benefit of the frame rate going up a nice amount, which makes the games feel so much more responsive. On paper, the level of upgrade isn't that massive between the base system and the Pro, but actually in game the difference is huge! Was really lucky to get my PS4 Pro on a deal via Amazon Prime, so I was able to get it for £347, which was a bit cheaper than it was going for in the electronic shops in Oxford. The day my PS4 died, which was a Sunday, Poppa and I went to about 6 different large shops and not one of them had any in stock. Is anyone else thinking about upgrading to the Pro (I'm not a fan of the XBone , so don't see the point of buying the XB1X with it's really high technical spec and poor software support)? I was worried Sony were going to announce the launch of the PS5 pretty soon, but in the gaming press, Sony have stated that there are no plans to launch the next system this year or next.
