I mean, at least some effort went into this. But man, the creative capital is wasted on an audience like this one.

True. I chuckled at the post, then read this. I think that actually makes it funnier. Or sad. Don't know which one it's more of.

Meanwhile at Sony HQ....

Shawn Layden: Where's our andoird spy Microsoft built for us, how are they gonna know what to do if we don't have that info, he's suppose to be back from Kyoto with everything Nintendo plans to do.

PlayStation Prez: Finally Reggie you're here, here's the R2D2 input, now plug in and let us see everything we need to do for next 5 years

Meanwhile at Nintendo HQ: Stupid idiots think we fall for oldest trick in book, plant a Trojan Horse with fake name Reggie Fils'Amie, we'll just planet a Trojan Horse in Reggie.

Back at Sony, Reggie to Shawn: Invest in movies, people like your shitty movies, VR is the future of all gaming put half your manpower into it and stop doing handhelds right away

Nice script. How long did it take you to write that? You should submit it to the screenwriters guild - perhaps they'll accept it and a director will pick it up and make a movie. Who knows, maybe you will get nominated for best fictional screenplay.

@xbhonner: Yes. Microsoft teased a new Xbox One at E3 2016 which took place in June. Sony later responded by unveiling the PS4 Pro in September 2016. The Pro was widely believed to be a preemptive strike against Project Scorpio at the time.

Which is false. It was announced in June 2016 but revealed in 2017.

https://www.cnet.com/news/xbox-one-project-scorpio-official-e3-2016/

Neo was announced in August 2016, unveiled in September 2016 and released in November 2016.

The Xbox One X was announced before. It was known as Project Scorpio at the time.

@Juub1990: "The Pro was widely believed to be a preemptive strike against Project Scorpio at the time."

MS officially did announce it first, but it was a year and a half before they released it and they only announced it at E3 to screw Sony over, because we all knew about the Pro long before E3. Sony just didn't officially announce it until later that year. And the Pro was made mostly to support the PSVR, not to compete with the X.

@sealionact: @Juub1990: Here's an article written April 2016, before we knew about project Scorpio... Technically you're both right though because Sony didn't officially make the announcement until a few months before release, whereas MS did it a full year and a half before release! Obviously Sony was working on the Project first(it did come out a year earlier than the X).

I remember hearing about PS4 pro rumblings first.

Anyways it doesn’t matter - Microsoft changes their narrative all the time and you can bet its dumbo lemmings will continue to support their flip flopping and fully defend their every move.

@joshrmeyer: No we’re not both right. The Sony fanboy is full of shit. Notice I said it was widely believed that the Pro was an answer to the X, not that it actually was. The X was announced before the Pro and there is no way around it. This dude is flat out wrong.

#44 Posted by JoshRMeyer (10246 posts) -

@Juub1990: look at who I was responding to... You and sealion. But all common sense would tell you that the Neo started development before the Scorpio. A year difference in release, and the X being more powerful. If Sony was trying to answer the Scorpio with Neo, they would have tried to match the specs a bit closer or beat the specs.

@Juub1990: Yep, because when the xbox one S was announced they literally had to say it wasn't the rumored scorpio. I wanna say the first rumors of project scorpio(before it even had the scorpio moniker) were around late 2015 to early 2016. I don't have a link, but I do know that I had heard about an upgraded xbox long before the S announcement at e3 2016.

And you are totally correct. Xbox One S was to make up for the bulky original models and needed to include 4K player drive in as well. Xbox One X (Scorpio) at the time was trying to make a better console only because the original Xbox One was a weak ass console compare to original PS4.

I think this poster isn't accounting for the long history of consoles.

Microsoft had HDDs as standard and a unified Online experience prior to Sony.

They were also the first to mainstream mass produced unified shader GPU in the X360.

That said. The PS4 was much better because Sony copied much of what made the x360 popular and then improved on it.

Example PS Plus and offering free games every month pushed MS to launch games with Gold.

I think it's best to be objective and respect each for their individual innovations.

lol listen to yourself, don't you see how dumb what you're saying is?

Sony didn't simply "unveil" PS4 Pro in 2016, they RELEASED it in 2016.
