PS4 Pro is Here!

Sony’s next gen console, the PS4 Pro finally hits the streets today.  I was tempted to purchase one, but the lack of  a 4K UHD drive made this a no go.  Yes, I know Sony is pushing this system as a game console first, which isn’t a bad way to go but there aren’t any original games available for it launch; just a bunch of titles being patched to take advantage of the system’s 4K up-scaling and increased processing capabilities. Gamers who don’t have a 4K tv can benefit from the PS4 Pro’s super charged processors and improved graphics chops.

My LG 4K OLED already upscales everything so I’m not sure what the point would be for me. I have no desire to replay my old games, just because they may look prettier.  Next year when games are designed with the Pro in mind it may be worth a pickup. The console retails for $400 and is available now. Here’s the official press release with all your tech specs.

I love me some Call of Duty! I think it’s one of the few game franchises where I beat every single player campaign since the beginning. Batman Arkham series is the only other franchise that holds that personal milestone. I’m not to enamored with the idea of COD in space, but Modern Warfare: Remastered? Hell Yeah. I want.

PS4 fans who pre-ordered the deluxe edition can now play a remastered Modern Warfare Level now, a full month ahead of everyone else. Meaning all you snot nosed brats will once again be fully leveled up before the rest of us mere mortals.  I wish they’d bring back Nazi’s. Can we have Nazi’s in space, or Time Travel COD?
