Well, that sucked. RE3make was at least officially confirmed, and we know we'll hear more about GoT at TGA (which seems to be increasingly resembling a mini-E3).

Is it just me, or does Babylon's Fall look incredibly generic? The art direction just seems bland, and the action is just the usual Platinum fare, but with a s&s theme.

@Anti-Matter Superliminal and Paper Beast look pretty free of violence.

Lol well I was right to say there was no point of that right before Game Awards.

I was looking forward to Ghost of Tsushima the most so overall I didn’t feel like it did much for me. I hope there is a release date reveal at the Game Awards.

I liked the RE3 trailer. Think everyone already knows what to expect from that one. It will be a very good Resident Evil game that sticks to the formula of the classic games. That assemetrical multiplayer game doesn’t interest me, but it’s included in the package so it’s something to do after finishing the 15-20 hour campaign.

Babylon Falls looks like it has a long way to go.

Do we think RE3 is going to have a first-person view?

That did seem to be shown in the trailer. Or was that just for dramatic effect?

It's confirmed over-the-shoulder 3rd person. Which is good, but I can't say I wasn't excited at the thought of the remake going 1st person when I saw it.

Yeah I just noticed there was the 3rd person view in the trailer too.

Well Ghost of Tsushima is a bit further than I'd hoped but at least they didn't say holiday next year or kick it to ps5. That being said it was a nice trailer.

I cannot wait until they release the eventual VR update to Dreams. I think that's when I'll buy it, assuming it's not included at launch.

Started up the single player mode of Star Wars Battlefront 2 this morning.

It looks absolutely stunning & is suprisingly difficult (though that may be due in part to the fact I don't play too many shooters, and am playing in 3rd person), though a bit glitchy (on many occasions enemies would go in and out of walls, one of which was responsible for one of my deaths, when I thought I had cleared a room I was suddenly being shot at again & before I died I found an arm sticking out of a wall shooting me).

I'm not a huge SW fan, but in general like sci-fi things so am wanting to try out more of the games.

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

Hi everyone. I was hoping you knowledgeable folks could help me please...

I recently purchased a 500GB PS4 Slim, bundled with five games (Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us, Uncharted 4, Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTAV) for £230. I haven't opened it yet as it's for Christmas. However...

There are now loads of deals for the 1TB PS4 Pro (e.g. £250, with two games), and I'm not sure whether to stick with the Slim or exchange it for a Pro. Advice please?

Some points to consider:

  • The last console I bought was a Wii U (2013). I have never played a PS3/360/PS4/Xbone; I don't own a Switch or gaming PC. Therefore I'm not overly fussed about the power/graphical differences between PS4/Pro. I'm more concerned about performance: a stable, smoother experience and a machine that will last. Is the Pro a vast improvement or not so much?
  • I only have a 32" 1080p TV and not planning on upgrading any time soon. I'm not after the home cinema, surround sound experience; I just want to play games. Am I better off sticking to the Slim?
  • I have also bought the PSVR. Will this work better with the Pro? If so, is there a significant difference?
  • Will a 500GB HDD be sufficient - at least for the first year or so? I will be mainly purchasing disc-based games, not digital (maybe a few).
  • I want the five games (mentioned above) that came with the Slim. Unfortunately, if I return the Slim then the games will also be returned as part of the bundle. I will need to purchase them again, so that would be extra expense to consider (£75?).
  • I've heard the Pro has a loud fan. Annoyingly so? Is the Slim a lot quieter?

So...
Stick with the 500GB PS4 Slim and five games (£230).
Or
Exchange it for a 1TB PS4 Pro with two games (£250) and buy the other five games (£75; total: £325).

Taking everything into consideration, what would you recommend? Is the Pro worth it? Thanks (and sorry for all the questions).

@Monkey_Balls Image quality is supposedly better on the Pro with VR. Otherwise, games generally only enjoy minor enhancements on the hardware. It's mostly a stop-gap for people with a 4K TV before the real next-gen consoles arrive.

My opinion? Just keep the Slim. The 500 GB of space on the hard drive might get a little cozy after awhile (I've made do, personally, but some people seem to feel the need to hoard game installs on their HDD), but you can supplement that with an external hard drive, which is a cheaper way to add on space.

EDIT: Doing the math, expect the games to require about 307GB of your 500GB hard drive. Plus you have VR games to install. So expect the current crop of games to eat up most of your hard drive space as long as they're installed on there. Thankfully, game saves are stored separately, so if you delete something when you're done with it, you can free up space.

RDR2 is the biggie, requiring about 107GB of free space to install on your system.

@Monkey_Balls If you don't have a 4K TV, the Slim is perfectly fine. I'd recommend the Pro if the price is only marginally higher, but then again, I'm still rocking my launch model PS4 despite owning a 4K TV, and the games still look good to me. I wouldn't worry about that too much. For PSVR, it does provide better image quality I've heard. But I've nothing to compare it to, so I cannot how how much better it is. The image quality on PSVR is a bit grainy in general though, so I'm not sure how much of that is improved with the Pro. Anyway, I do recommend giving Astro Bot a try, because it's hands-down the best PSVR title available at the moment!

Storage may become an issue after a while, depending on how many games you buy and want to have available at all times. I have a 1TB model, and most games are up to 40-45GB for the big releases. But RDR2 is an exception at over 100GB. You can easily delete the games though after you're done playing them (and still keep the patches and save data of course). Especially if it's a game you're likely not going to return to in the coming months. If you have the games on disc, it's not an issue, but if you own them digitally, you're dependent on your internet speed for your downloads and installs, so that could take a bit more time I guess.
