PS4 Pro Has Huge Advantage Over Scorpio Due To Early Release In Spite Of Being Less Powerful- Kona Developer

How effective will this headstart be? That remains to be seen.

15 Ways to Enhance Your Experience on PS4 and Xbox One

The PS4 Pro and the Xbox One Scorpio are intriguing prospects, because they are mid generation harxware refreshes that actually add to the original consoles’ capabilities. But how Sony and Microsoft have gone about this process is a stark study in contrasts- where Sony decided to stick to the original PS4 design, and update it moderately, Microsoft have gone ahead with a radical rethink of the Xbox One design and come up with the Scorpio.

Given the Scorpio’s power advantage over the PS4 Pro as a result of these differing approaches, should Sony have followed the Microsoft playbook in this regard, too? Sony has gone for a moderate upgrade with the PS4 Pro and instead resorting to methods such as 4K checkerboard rendering. So should Sony have gone ahead and released a more powerful mid-gen refresh just like the Scorpio? That is what we decided to ask Jean-François Fiset, Community Manager of Parabole, developer of Kona, when he sat down with us for an exclusive interview.

“The way I see it is that even though the PS4 Pro is less powerful than the Scorpio, Sony still has a huge advantage,” he said. “They released their upgraded version of the PS4 approximately a year before the Scorpio. It means that they had a lot of time to earn more clients who in the end, just want to play a game on a console that answer their immediate needs.”

The year long head start the PS4 Pro has is hardly deniable- but of course, adoption of the PS4 Pro has been a bit on the slower side, especially since Sony themselves have de-emphasized it in marketing, leaving it to the more informed core gamers to scope it out themselves. Will this headstart actually matter against the Scorpio? Ultimately, is the more radically overhauled Scorpio even competing with the PS4 Pro? That is all something that remains to be seen.

Stay tuned for our complete with the developers of Kona later this week. In the meantime, check out the game’s announcement trailer below.


Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • kee1haul

    There hasn’t been much momentum in favour of Pro.

    • LifeOnMars

      The PS4 Pro is currently outselling the Xbox One.

    • kee1haul

      Where did you see that?

    • Hahah dont panic.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Probably in Japan.

    • Riggybro

      You’re either being funny or it’s true…

      Either way I laughed :oD

    • Mr Xrat

      Well considering the PS4’s been smashing the Xbone since day one, there isn’t any need.

    • kee1haul

      Power.

    • Mr Xrat

      Not the sole reason the Shitbox Done got owned, Mark.

    • kee1haul

      More power.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Hasn’t been a need. That said, if you’re comparing Pro and Scorpio, the latter has NO momentum because it isn’t even on shelves yet; in that case, ALL the momentum is in favor of the Pro.

    • kee1haul

      har har har. Thats a stretch. Given that statement, it should be doing faaaaar better in those awareness measurements.

    • J.j. Barrington

      How so?

    • kee1haul

      Because it had ALL the momentum, been out a year, and still didn’t breach any significant figures on the awareness scale. Scorpio has not much less than Pro with absolutely nothing.

    • J.j. Barrington

      But the Pro hasn’t been out a year. And what? You think people would be more aware of the Pro on some massive level? Why? The same people interested in news about one will be interested in news about the other.

      Besides, it’s not as if the Scorpio only just got announced or something; it’s been confirmed for nearly as long as the Pro. And there’s been as much- if not more- coverage of the Scorpio. They’re definitely trying to make the Scorpio a bigger deal than Sony made the Pro. So given those things, Scorpio being below Pro is not a good thing at all.

      Nice try, though.

    • kee1haul

      Well, bottom line is 4k native gaming. That’s what I will enjoy and I don’t care about the PSPeasants.

    • J.j. Barrington

      But that already exists on PS4, and it won’t be every game on Scorpio.

      You’re making yourself look silly.

    • kee1haul

      native 4k on PS4? Show me lol and it certainly will be many more games on Xbox.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Do your own research.

      Yes, more games will be native 4k on Scorpio- not Xbox- and they should be. But it won’t be all games, so I’m not sure why you’re acting so superior. After all, are you playing the better versions of games until Scorpio drops?

      Assuming you’re the Xbox fanboy we all know you to be, you’re playing the worst version of multiplats right now, meaning you’re even more of a peasant, using your own logic. You wanna laugh about that irony, while you’re at it?

    • kee1haul

      More power.

    • J.j. Barrington

      So you have a Pro now, right?

    • kee1haul

      No, I said ‘more’ power.

    • J.j. Barrington

      lol, it’s more than what you currently have.

    • kee1haul

      and scorpio will be more than you hve.

    • J.j. Barrington

      The Pro is more than I have, but I’m not hanging my hat on power.

    • kee1haul

      POWER

    • J.j. Barrington

      Yep. You have less.

    • kee1haul

      MORE POWER!

  • Marcelo

    “It means that they had a lot of time to earn more clients who in the end, just want to play a game on a console that answer their immediate needs.”

    I thought that clients that just want a console to play games already have a PS4/One and don’t need to rush to buy a better one…

    • Gary

      And that’s why Sony de-emphasized the marketing of ps4 pro, and the customized limited edition consoles are all still released for the original Ps4 rather than the Pro. I think it’s a rather answer move by Sony. Doing it in such a way they ensure that keep the differentiation of fanbase to minimum, that original ps4 owners are still main focus, and there is extra power only if you ever need it. Xbox on the other hand, due to the marketing hype by ms, you almost feel as if the Xbox one is being left behind even though it’s supposed to do the same thing as the Pro.

  • Mr Xrat

    It’s about a variety of factors, no matter how hard Xgimps insist otherwise. The 360 had a year’s lead but that didn’t stop it getting destroyed by the Wii before the PS3 got the last laugh leaving it at third place. The Xbox brand’s continuing issues will continue to be a millstone.

    • kma99

      Hey upbot log in your alter ego quasimordial so u can lie a little more. Dont worry i will start doing a screen shot of everything u say.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      FULL DISCLOSURE: I know you answered to Xrat and not me. Still, I read the comments and given your rtarded comment I’ll intervene THIS TIME!

      Have you learned FINALLY to take scren shots moron? the how about you show some screen shot of your supposed converstaion of all three of us?

      Lets see who the real liar is…

      (Again cause I have already exposed your lies when you ran away again remeber?)

    • Ucouldntbemorewrong

      Before calling one a moron… perhaps you should spell “screen” correctly first. J.S.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Perhaps! thank you for the heads up! I’ll edit it now. You did see me typing it correctly a few words after…

      A typing mistake is just that! It doesn’t reflect the intelligence of the person typing.

    • angryguy77

      That is true in a lot of cases, but what a person writes does reflect on their intelligence. Sadly, reading what you write in these articles doesn’t give us much hope for you.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Ahhh you got so agry about the spanking that you went to answer even on other of my comments? NO worry! I can fact spankyou as many times you want:

      It doesnt give much hope for me? Yet I keep moping the floor with you! what hope would there be for you then? So you not only have poor tast in consoles, you also have low self respect.

      I’ll make a correction, You not only need new games, you need a psychologist first!

      #stillwaitingforANYTHING

    • angryguy77

      and you need to get that multiple personality disorder under control xrat.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Awww you get factspanked by so many users that you brain developed a defense mechanism of convincing you they all are the same person?

      Better to be fact spanked by just one person than many? Right? Right? only problem with your defense is that that would mean you get fact spanked by the same person in many different ways!

      You still end up like a punching bag either way!

      #feelinginsecure

    • J.j. Barrington

      “Can” reflect, rather than “does.”

      And you should be saving all your hope for yourself, in all honesty.

    • angryguy77

      Already fixed it before your “gotcha.”
      Sorry fan club, but you need to be quicker than that.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Or you could just not make the mistakes. But then, what would you have without a bunch of wrong “information?”

    • Ucouldntbemorewrong

      Yes I did.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      What happened chickenshit? you got exposed and ran scared away again?

      Sucks tu be a liar! getting exposed so easily sucks even harder! like this year xbone exclusives!

    • kma99

      Nothing happen xrat. What happened to your post under your other name. Ohh yeah u deleted it. Thr only reason why u camr here is because u saw respond to u on dual shockers and u didnt want me to call u out over there too

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      sure liar, sure! so where is the screen shot? all you claim is lie so how strange that when you say you have evidence you CAN?T provide it! Show my “deleted” response to you!

      go on liar x bot! I dare you!

    • kma99

      Lol ok liar. Tough talk for someone who has to upvote himself and delete post when he catches himself posting in the same comment with 2 different names lol.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      So prove it moron! where are those “same comments”?

      How come you cant show them? is it too hard for a rtrd like you? or is it that your dead brain got consfused but you have no balls to admit it?

    • kma99

      I dont have to prove anything. This isnt thr first time u got caught doing that and tried to deny it. How ironic when i went into my inbox to reply to xrat his comment plus my response to him was gone. I wonder why someone who wasnt guilty would do such a thing lol. Bet u just waiting by your computer anticipating the next xbox release so u can give it a low score on metacritic again. Lol

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      So what is it? are you so brain dead you cannot do it? or you have no ball to admit that is false?

      Considering you have already claim you now know how to take screen shots I guess that only leaves the secon option! Only doubt I have is, are you so afraid to admit that : you got confused? or that you invented the whole thing but never imagined that there was evidence that you could not provide?

      A proven liar you are, now you are proving you are also a coward!

      #kma99hasnoballs

    • kma99

      So how old are u lol. Only kids decide to deny stuff even when they are caught red handed. Its ok xrat you are so predictable lol. You use the same tactics with every sock account lol. You get banned and come back with the same words lol. Man gets called out for lying, promptly deletes post then denies it ever happened

    • angryguy77

      It is kind of odd how he and xrat always seem to comment on the same articles haha.

    • kma99

      Only man in history to post under 2 names, gets caught, deletes post and denys the entire thing.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Only moron in history that can’t take a simple screen shot!

    • kma99

      How do you screenshot something you deleted? Are u stupid or just slow? Now tell me why did u feel the need to delete it you cuck.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      I already told you moron! But you pretend you don’t listen, cause you are lying anyways!

      So, about those xbone exclusives… What was the last one? Halo 5? Or some forza?

      #xbonehasthelowestratedexcluives

    • kma99

      You told me a lie you cuck. Not even 30 seconds after i called u out for posting under 2 names the post just magically disappeared. How ironic that one post was deleted but everything else is still there. Now stop lying u liar

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      The comments remain in disqus! Regardless!

      When will you learn?

      So halo 5 or forza 6?

      #xbotstarvation

    • kma99

      If it remains how come no one can see it lol. Stop trolling u cuck. If a mod deletes an offensive post can u still see it? Of course u can’t. You think im 8 years old i liar.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Only you can see your own notification section in disqus moron! It requires a password. Pst Pst (It’s how you know someone replied to you in the first place!)

      Now you think I am a mod? Lol
      You really are delusional!

      Get over it, you are not here to “discover identities” or conspiracies! If you can’t prove it, you’ll never know for sure anyways,

      So, regarding things that can be proved, was forza 6 the last xbrick exclusive?

      Oh, and I’m playing a new ps4 exclusive, you know, like those xbone doesn’t have. So ill continue with your inconsequential conversation tomorrow.

      #xbonhasthelowestratedexclusivesever

      … when it had them, if course!

    • kma99

      Hey sonycuck dont u think i did that. He sonycuck why did u have to delete it anyway then u wouldn’t be here in defense mode all night. Pathetic liar!

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      I know you didn’t! cause you are a liar! If you had you would have seen that even if I delete pre and post comments your comment remains!

      Now, you claim that it doesnt, that it dissapears as well so you can keep being od DEFLECT mode of the spanking I have been giving you.

      Guess what? I will prove you wrong yet again! here is how you take a screen shot of a message where others deleted the comment but one person didnt!

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9c5841b01f53d840e95f0b6a816d1003570be40c3fe6074ed8c759e54985a846.png

      BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      LIAR EXPOSED!!!!

      #kma99ismybitchandikeepexposingher

    • kma99

      Why are u trying to link me to something else lol. What are you booming for dummy. You aren’t exposing anyone just looking dumber. Are you gonna lie for entire month of May

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Link you? If I wanted to link you I would have sent you a link moron!

      Thats a screen shot showing how you have been liying all this time.

      I exposed your lie! so whatever you keep saying about it is irrelevant!

      Now, how come no xbone exclusive but one racing one have ever reached a 90? Is it cause their story sucks?

      #ps4ownsxboneandiownkma99

    • kma99

      You didnt expose anything. If you didnt delete ghe post then who did? And what was so damming about that post that someone felt the need to delete it. Dont worry i know the answer. You’ve been damage controlling gor 3 days lol. Pathetic

    • Gamez Rule

      ☺☺☺

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Like you and kma99? So we have to assume you are the same user as well?

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      To caught someone red handed you need….EVIDENCE!!!!!! And you have none! what happened moron? you got caught red handed pretending you have caught me?

      Did I also deleted your comment????? uh moron? I know you think I so superior to you (cause I am obviously) but even I cant delete your comments!

      So show it moron! show your comment surrounded by my “deleted comments”…

    • kma99

      Lol still denying it. Lol how come every time i click on thr link to respond to xrat it for sime reason isnt there. Its ok sonycuck.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      How the F would I know? How do I even know what you say about that is true? You have been found lying many times in the past!

      So I’ll stop for a moment and ask you two very simple questions, and see if you can find a hint of honesty to answer them :

      1. Do you really think I have the knowledge/skills/ability to delete your comments?

      2. Do you know how to take and attach a screen shot?

    • kma99

      But u do know clown lol. Like i said earlier while u were not paying attention. U went back and deleted it before i could go back and screen shot. Hence the reason every time i go click reply the comment is gone

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Then take a f#*Ing screen shot of the comment in your notification screen moron! Don’t click reply, just send the damn screen shot!

      Is that so hard? (evidently) but now that I gave you the idea, can you do that clown?

    • kma99

      GET MAD you little temperamental girl. You are a cerrified nutcase. Even when caught red handed you still deny it. You were so quick to pop off at the mouth you forgot to log out lol.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      So you couldn’t even do that! Cause you are an incompetent moron? No, I mean, you are, but it’s because you lied!

      And as soon as I asked for proof your lie shattered so easily.

      I get it, you get fact spanked by so many users all the time, so you would feel better if instead of being spanked by many you just were spanked by only one user with many names, right?

      But the thing is you still got spanked continuously!

      So you are either spanked by many users or spanked by one in many different ways! You still are a punching bag! It also doesn’t change the fact that the ps4 exclusives are superior in quantity and quality to the not exclusive xbone ones!

      #Iownkma99buthesaysIownhimindifferentways

    • kma99

      Lol so why did u or this alleged xrat delete the post? Dont worry i know why. Just like u have done time and time again. When u get caught u delete the post and then ask for proof.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Really? So you say this has happened to you many times before? Then you are way beyond moron, you are an absolute imbecile! You get spanked and fooled repeatedly and you haven’t learned to prove it? L o s e r!

      Still ps4 >>>xbrick,
      ps4 exclusives >>> xbrick,
      Quimicomortal >>> kma99

      Enough said!

      #Iownkma99buthesaysIownhimindifferentwaysbutiownhimanyway

    • kma99

      Cant hear u past that garbage you keep trying to make us believe. You deleted the post just own ip to it. You’re supposed to be a grown man.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Lol your lies don’t hold up!

      And you can’t ANSWER my claims cause they are true!

      Way more mature than you liar!

      #xbonehasthelowestratedexclusivesever

    • kma99

      Tell me why u deleted your post. Stop blaming some invisible man you petty little child. Lol pathetic

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      I didn’t! And if I had, you could still take a screen shot of my “deleted comment” on the disqus notification section. You can even provide that, why? Cause you are lying!

      And ps4 has had constant and superior exclusives! And you were so desperate that you admitted xbone doesn’t have exclusives anymore!

      #StillwaitingforANYTHING

    • kma99

      I didnt ask you about your bias opinions. I asked you why did you delete your post xrat

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      And I answered clown! I didn’t! That’s why you can’t prove it. No matter how you want to call me.

      They are facts moron! That’s why you can’t even try to counter them!

      #xbotstarvation

    • kma99

      U amswered with a lie. Pathetic!

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      You can’t prove it, so the liar is you!

      Still ps4 has had constant and superior exclusives! And you were so desperate that you admitted xbone doesn’t have exclusives anymore!

      #kma99ismybitchbuthewantstobeitinmanyways

    • kma99

      You trying to deflect is proof enough. Dont care about your bias opinions you nutcase

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      You have no proof! Like xbrick have no exclusives!

      You can’t counter facts, so you are prepare to run away like the little b I t c h you have always been.

      #StillwaitingforANYTHING

    • angryguy77

      And the award for “most afraid of the scorpio” goes to……….Mr xrat.
      congrats. But no need to be afraid, you can buy one and enjoy true next gen graphics too.

  • kreator

    He must really want that trash to sell huh?! Looks like a Switch title..

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Luckily for PS4 owners, there are plenty of great NEW exclusives to be playing.

      If only xbrick received new games! even like this one!

  • Wei Feng

    media box 2 does the weak 6 tflops both 32 and 16 PF vs our 8.4TF of 16PF

    • ShowanW

      dumbest comment i’ve read so far… and it’s not even 8am where i’m at right now….

  • angryguy77

    “It means that they had a lot of time to earn more clients who in the end, just want to play a game on a console that answer their immediate needs.”
    Except the pro really doesn’t answer the needs of the gamer who wants a really powerful system that can do 4k and have great graphics.
    need a definition of damage control? read this article.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      except x1 or scorpio doesnt answer the needsof the gamer who wants…GAMES, new games! great games! great new exclusives! regarldess of the resolution! not just port of old games or mediocre semi exclusives also present on PC.

      Need a shorter definition of damage control? read the comment above!

    • angryguy77

      what I need is for you drones to get a new narrative. The “no games” is not only dumb, it’s annoying. Just because they don’t have as many as sony, does not mean they have none.
      #math

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      The narrative wont go away until the games come!

      What new games you have this year? other than halo wars 2, which bombed harder than recore, anything relevant? something you think will be a million seller?…nah! Ill leave it in half million seller? any GOTY contender?…NO?

      Then the narrative stands and YOU NEED NEW GAMES!

      #xbonehasthelowestratedexclusivesever
      #stillwaitingforANYTHING

    • angryguy77

      A million seller isn’t that big of a deal when you have an install base north of 50 million. #math again.
      Now back to your hole to pray for a ps5 release.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      What? no games?…lol TOLD YOU! See? you confirm the no games narrative! LOL

      Exactly! so when you have less than half of those 50 million, hal a million shouldnt be that hard, yet YOU HAVE NOT A SINGLE 2017 xbone exclusive that can hope to reach half a million! #youmathconsoleandlogicsucks

      Nah! thats only what you x bots do for scorpio since YOU HAVE NO NEW GAMES!!!!

      #xbotstarvation

    • angryguy77

      English isn’t your 1st language is it? Or are you a product of common core math.
      Not as many doesn’t mean 0.
      again, bragging about exclusives that barely even sell to more than 5% of your user base is stupid. The term “overrated” comes to mind…..

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      2017 AAA x1 not really exclusives? 0 hows that for english and math? I asked you for a relevant game and you answered with…NONE! None=0 oh , look, more math!

      No its not! gamers play games, not sales! you sound like you are a MS investor so maybe thats why you defend an inferior console and care more for sales or scores!

      That would be your saving grace! if you are no gamer and just an investor, if not?…te therm imbecile comes to mind.

      #xbotstarvation(forgamersorinvestorsalike)

    • QUIMICOMORTAL
    • J.j. Barrington

      Yes, it does.

      Or are you trying to pass off a lie as truth by saying the games on Pro aren’t in 4K and don’t have great graphics?

      Damage control is your comment, perfectly crafted to be such.

    • angryguy77

      4k native, not using tricks like sony did on KZ to claim it was in 1080p.
      I never said ps4 or pro doesn’t have great graphics. They do for the HW they’re on. But scorpio will be better.
      The pro as good as it is, isn’t that powerful, the same goes for the ps4 and the x1. This gen was woefully underpowered and a lot of people will be happy to actually have a system like the scorpio to play on.
      I don’t need to damage control for the Scorpio. When your side does nothing but falsely talk about how it has no games, then I know you really have no argument.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Killzone WAS 1080p, and they’ve already said Scorpio will have its own checkerboard rendering called “sparse rendering.”

      … maybe you should do some research before you respond.

    • angryguy77

      lol KZ was not true 1080. Everyone knows that.
      Gotta say, I love how triggered you get over the scorpio.

    • J.j. Barrington

      You’re jumping to defend the Scorpio, but you say I’m triggered.

    • angryguy77

      Yes, yes you are.
      It just eats you so much doesn’t it! No more power advantage, and you’ll have to wait at least 2 years to get it back.
      Tell me, does the SDF feed their drones with MRE’s or do they give actual meals?

    • J.j. Barrington

      Lame. So very lame.

      I don’t play power advantages; how do you do that? I only play games. I suppose, if I were in your shoes, having to be happy about a console release still many months away because games are lacking on my preferred console, I might also find a way to play power in lieu of games. As it stands, though, I don’t have any such hardship.

      Question, though: if power is such a big deal to you, surely you have a Pro already, right? Or were you content to play your poorer versions of every game? If the latter, I don’t see why you would be so enthused… or maybe you’re enthused precisely BECAUSE you only had the weaker Xbox to play on, and now you finally get to brag about something?

      Nope, no pro. I’d get a ps4 base before that waste of money.
      lol keep your jrpg’s and nitch games.
      and for the love of all that is holy, work on not getting so triggered fan club.

      I see you didn’t correct “niche” before I caught that one.

      Sucks to be you. Now you’re not even countering with fact, but deflecting, and poorly.

      Just take this L.

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    It has it!

    its called EXCLUSIVES!

    The interview was handled by my colleague at Parabole. My schedule being super packed, I cannot verify nor challenge everything that everyone here write or say, nor can I block the press from taking 1% of an interview to (kinda) fuel a console war.

    That being said, I just want to clarify that while being early on the market is often a good thing, it doesn’t mean it is the case here. We won’t know until we see Microsoft’s plan with Scorpio. The iPhone is a good example of a product that was not there first, but provided enough advantages over its competition to rise as a clear winner shortly after release.

    In the end, nothing can’t be stricly black or white, and the PS Pro vs Scorpio “war” is no exception. What if Scorpio deliver AAA graphics on VR? What if it comes with an unannounced exclusive that everybody wants? What if both address different markets? What if they just coexist? What if nobody buy it?

    We never know what the future holds until it just happens. “Kona’s developer” won’t change that.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      O.K. I think you are correct! Nothing that is ever said about scorpio compared to PS4 pro has no value until we know the price at the very least!

    • J.j. Barrington

      I don’t think it’s being claimed as ALWAYS a good thing. But you really cannot deny that the Pro having about a year on the market before the Scorpio comes out is an advantage in the former’s favor. That’s a year of people buying the Pro because it’s actually out.

      The iPhone is NOT a good example, because it wasn’t an iteration of a preexisting product.

      There are LOTS of “what ifs” involved; that’s why we- some of us, anyway- gather as much available information as we can and speculate intelligently. That allows us to dismiss some of those questions as highly unlikely. Many of your “what if” scenarios land in that category, but it’s more than just that. It’s also trust in the companies involved to follow through on various aspects. For Microsoft, there doesn’t seem to be much trust in them delivering games that justify purchasing this console; without that, the market for the Scorpio will be even smaller.

      But I digress.

      “Kona’s developer” isn’t trying to change anything. Simply answering a question that was asked. And, frankly, that’s about the most sound answer he could have given.

    • My point is that we just don’t know while the title says “PS4 Pro has huge advantage”. We don’t know if it has any advantage as the other product isn’t out yet. I am one of Kona’s developer and just wanted to offer a nuance for that part of the interview.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Getting to market first is always an advantage. Whether or not you’re able to capitalize on that is another story, entirely. As is whether or not the competition is able to overcome it.

  • J.j. Barrington

    Xbox has sparse rendering, its own checkerboard method, so why isn’t Microsoft “resorting” to that?

    • angryguy77

      They do that just like sony. Why? because the x1, ps4, and pro are underpowered. Thankfully we have a beast console coming out. We haven’t seen this type of leap since 2006.

    • J.j. Barrington

      That term is for the Scorpio genius.

      You should stop talking.

    • angryguy77

      Fun fact…..Sony used “sparse” way before MS. The difference is, they were talking about their game lineup rather than tech. So odd since Sony has been releasing 50 AAA ip’s a year according you drones.
      Fan club, you’re not doing so well here. I’d probably work on my newsletter instead if I were you.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Fun fact: the year Sony used “sparse” to refer to their game lineup, they STILL put out as much as XBox did.

      Damn.

      You might wanna grab a book or two.
