Sony Answers PlayStation 4 Pro Criticisms; Xbox Challenges PS4's 4K Superiority

By Jomar Teves , Sep 21, 2016 03:00 AM EDT

Sony has defended itself in the midst of sieges of criticisms that the term 4K in the PlayStation 4 Pro is misleading. Because of media overhyping, gamers are expecting bona fide 4K support from the upcoming PS4 Pro. 

To put 4K gaming resolution in a legitimate point of view, the current array of titles is operating under the upscale 4K resolution. Meaning, a title that claims capable of 4K is actually just "fitting" the graphics in any 4K screen. Sony stated that the PlayStation 4 Pro will "replicate" the current idea through another fancy term, "Forward Compatibility." The debate began when gamers expected that PS4 Pro will give the real deal in 4K gaming, like what the upcoming Xbox Scorpio promises.

Sony's defense

Sony's big boss Andrew House lambasted critics by defending the case and emphasized that there was no deceptive 4K issue with the PlayStation 4 Pro. House said that the issue comes down to whether the console is equipped for producing astounding graphics, 4K or not. Current issue should base not on talk but rather gaming experience which will conclude if PS4 Pro lives to its hype, Game Rant reported.

 Gamers are still hoping for real 4K experience

Gamers were expecting a lot from PlayStation 4 after Sony used the term "4K gaming experience" to define the console during its product presentation. If there are any hope for 4K display in future game titles, the best is Xbox's Project Scorpio, according to PlayStation Universe.

Spencer hates the comparison

In a related advancement, Phil Spencer of Microsoft Xbox air dislike over too much comparison between the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One S, which sports a 4K player. PS4 Pro does not have this critical feature that spurs it to the comparison. Spencer said that negative dialog must be evaded and console makers should concentrate on further upgrades.

Big things are coming

Meanwhile, it is intriguing that Sony will release a standalone 4K module in 2017. There is no date yet about release nor preorder, but gamers are already hinting that this could be the reason behind the absence of a 4K Blu-ray player in PlayStation 4 Pro.
