    PS4 Pro/Xbox one X Upgrade 30th Oct 17 at 1:51 PM
    Ok So I have original PS4 (Black) & XBOX one S (Deep Blue)... (Use 2 Portable Hard Drive's for extra storage)

    What are the pros/cons of upgrading...

    Should I buy PS4 Pro or Xbox One X

    I don't have 4k TV But thinking of getting one soon (I Have 32inch Sony Full HD TV Silver)

    PS4 runs fine but is sometimes Laggy/slow (Destiny 2)

    Should I not bother upgrading?

    Was tempted for PS4 Pro

    The S is at a very nice price point though.

    Hopefully wont be too much longer. Zavvi and one or two other retailers had the console (with no games) for 399 so not far off.

    I think the biggest thing that put me off the S was its white colour - who the hell has a white tv/surround sound?

    Still think it was a mistake not having X exclusive games to tap its potential.
    Its only ever going to be a bit of polish on Xbox games.

    The XBox One S and Playstation 4 / PRO are selling exceptionally well, so no need to put big investment in to the next gen platform just yet.

    I will suggest you to go with Xbox after you have 4k TV. You will enjoy playing some amazing 4k games on it.

    I see Microsoft have announced their new console will be arriving in 2020. It will be interesting to see how SONY respond.

    not worth a thread of its own. However Sony are really against any form of cross platform play.

    No they didn't. All microsoft said at E3 was that the team who designed xbox one x are "deep into architecting the next xbox consoles".

    That was it. No specifics and certainly no dates.

    ETA: Check yourself if you don't believe me. You can watch the entire thing or you can just watch from around 1:33:00 - which is when they mentioned it.
