Okay, I will admit, I might want to buy a PS4

    There's this new Playstation 4 Pro out? I dunno, I am so out of this console market. Just hanging out in Minecraft on the Mac or play a few stupid games on the iPad, is more than enough.

    But daaaamn when I see a few gameplay videos of things like the last of us, and that sorta exclusive to ps4 titles, I really can't wait to just sit down one summer and play those.

    Seeing how i don't really have any friends, and certainly not anybody with a ps4, I might just go ahead at some point and buy a ps4 pro with a few games. And then just sell it after a year.

    Am I making a mistake? Should I get certain games?

    Oh, another point, I do not have a tv, my last "television" was a CRT that's big and beautiful, if you are born in 1977 like me. But I don't have a 65" 4k uhd tv thing with hdmi ports, etc. I watch my tv shows and movies on my iMac, and plan to continue to do so. But the iMac does not have a second monitor, nor a hdmi connection. So adding a ps4pro to it seems to be impossible.

    When I get a new console, it means I have to not just pay 60 bucks for a game, but also few hundred to a thousand for a good quality 4k monitor. blargh.

    Maybe the new iMac might get an input port? Probably not.. Anybody have any thoughts on a monitor for my perhaps possibly ps4pro?

    You'd love it. :D
    We have a ps4 in the house and it's great fun. You can get some amazing games for it these days. The graphics are awesome and minecraft is fun.

    Two of my favourite games at the moment have to be 'Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration' and 'Resident Evil Biohazard'. The graphics on Tomb Raider are amazing, not so good on Resident Evil, but god damn it's scary.

    I will very likely get the tomb raider one. I got the ps1 with it, I have to get it again.
    I sorta wanna play a story line adventure thing like the last of us.

    Minecraft for console kinda sucks, compared to the pc/mac version. I know kids love it, but, it's just not the same.

    I have no depth perception, VR is going to be a gimmick to me. I haven't found one yet where I go "oh geesh, i am in the game" it is just double screen close to my eyes.

    I do not want a PS4, because I have my PC for gaming now.

    I've always bought both consoles from a generation, nothing really grabs me on the PS4 at the moment though

    There's lots of great exclusives on the PS4, Floris. It's also a great entertainment system. I would definitely get it. I have both the PS4 and Xbox One and I use my Xb1 more due to my girlfriend as that's her console of choice and FPS games play just a tad bit better on there (IMHO) but the PS4 is FANTASTIC for exclusive titles and even some 3rd party non-FPS titles as well.

    Definitely worth a buy if you're strongly considering a purchase. If you have a 4K tv, I would definitely go for the PS4 Pro model.

    I guess if I buy a new monitor for my future computer system, that I will have to guarantee HDMI ports for game consoles. So I can connect the Nintendo Switch for example, and a PS4Pro.

    Do you own an Xbox One? The Xbox One has an HDMI-In port on the back of it. I use that to piggy-back my 360 as my TV only has 4 HDMI ports, with the One, it allows me 5. :) Just an idea. ;)

    Nope. My last console was the xbox360, but that's dead. I only played like two or maybe three games on it. Before that I had a Playstation 1. The xbox360 didn't really give me the wow factor. I haven't had a HD tv except my iMac monitor. And I have not played on consoles much since. So the ps4pro and a nice 4k+ monitor should give me a nice wow factor when I play uncharted, the last of us, etc. Looking forward.

    I would not mind a custom build of a glass case with proper cable management below the tv that is mounted on the wall. With a speaker set around it

    having it stacked in 4 consoles, like a Media server, xboxOne, ps4pro, and the switch. 2x2

    aaah i should get back into gaming. Anybody have $10,000 ? :D

    My little brother got a PS4 a month back or something. I'm so tempted to steal it for a weekend and play all the games I want on it

    You'd be able to yes. However, like Xbox Live, PS4 now requires a subscription to play Online, it's $49.99 USD a year.
