@lilc74gd: Everyone on a console is playing with the same equipment so multiplayer is fair and balanced. A high end gaming PC provides an advantage over a standard laptop user in MP games. Personally I prefer a fair and balanced approach to these games than buying an advantage with better technology, however I understand that part of the PC experience is customizing or buying a better rig.

@-sharp-shooter-: no, it means his purchased upgrades would be not accessible when he played with mainstream players. he could choose elite games with only the suckers who purchased advantages.

Much ado about nothing. No one said anything like the title of this article. Author is stirring the pot about a hunch with no basis. Fake news!

Why would you use this on a PS3 anyway? You can pick up used PS3 games for almost nothing and have a much better gaming experience.

Did the reviewer even play Infinite Warfare? He thinks it is about an intergalactic war and the campaign doesn't even get out of the solar system.

@nibbin1191: I agree RDR had a wonderful campaign, however the online activities is where I spent most of the time and the most enjoyment with the game and the primary reason I am interested in a sequel. I doubt I will buy this for the campaign until the price drops even if it takes a year or two. The campaign will still be fun then. I purchased RDR used for $8. So I will wait to see how the on line portion works first. If players can just purchase an advantage in the competitive part then I will wait. If it is a level playing field I am all in at full price.

Red Dead Redemption is one of my favorite games of all time. However, I do not play MP games where people can buy downloads that give them an advantage. If this is the case than I will not be playing the RDR2 multiplayer and will wait to buy or rent a used copy to play the campaign. I hope that any in-game currency is for skins and customization and not for acquiring weapons or skills in multiplayer.

@golden1elite: Sony states 4K streaming, and 4K auto upscaling for games. All the BS comes from writers of articles like this one, who don't understand. I assume 4K auto upscaling on the console will be faster than upscaling on the TV, and provide a more consistent experience. For fast gaming, TV lag time and 60 fps are more important than 4K and HDR.

TV lag time can be from 9 to 160 milliseconds depending on the TV. Lag adds up - server, TV, AV system, game console, and wireless controllers start approaching nervous system response times. Going from 30 fps to 60 fps takes 16 milliseconds off. Not a lot but it all adds up. Upscaling can increase this 100 ms. The Pro could make a significant difference in being able to go to 60 fps, fast auto-upscaling to 4 K (if done properly), and apparently you can play with a wired controller. It can mean the difference of up to 250 millisecond lag time, which is huge in a FPS multiplayer since nerve response time is about 100 milliseconds. There are listings of TV lag times on the internet and some of them are terrible.

If you are getting owned in COD check your TV lag time, connect your console directly to the TV instead of through an AV system, use a wired connection to the internet, switch from DSL to cable, and check your internet speed and ping times. Faster frame rates, a wired controller, and auto-upscaling to 4K in the Pro should give a slight edge, but only in games that require a fast response time. I am getting a Pro because I need all the help I can get. Before I purchase I am going to confirm that it will have improved times for my new 48" Sony 4K HDR TV which I selected for the low lag time. The new 4K HDR TVs are pretty but do not improve game play, and can make it worse without an improved console that can take advantage with higher speeds and less lag.

I would like a decent Stargate game. The movies were good, but the TV series were great.

My favorite shooter campaigns were Bad Company 2 and Resistance 2. I am not claiming they are the best FPS campaigns, but I enjoyed them the most and they had great stories behind them, followed by Modern Warfare 2.
