Postby steliosem06 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:00 pm

]So about 2 days ago Sony released a new,2 tb Playstaton 4 Pro to celabrate 500 playstaton's sold(All of them together 1,2,3,4)I dont really lke its design,it looks like an cheap plastc case that they would sell in the local market.I know I know it kinda "retro"because t looks like those Clear case Ps2's but even back then I thought there were made cy cheap plastics...And by the way,remember that 20th annicersary ps4,i mean,that was GORGEOUS!Whats your thoughts?

I'd love to get a 3D Printer and make custom cases for consoles. Wouldn't be too hard to pull off eather with a good CAD program. But yeah some of these new consoles look horrid n tacky

Not big on clear cases or gold. Gold would look better on a shiny or matte black surface, IMO.

None of the special edition PS4's have looked particularly 'special', imo.
With that in mind, I think this is one of the better looking ones - mainly due to how plain it looks.
I have the Star Wars BF2 PS4 Pro, but only because at the time I bought it it worked out cheaper than any other Pro model available.

That would be fantastic, endless possibilities.

Those feckers at Sony should give me a job, i'd have come up with something more interesting than that. Its probably cheap to produce so they went with it.

To be fair that's probably the best Limited Edition PS4 console they've done so far, the God of War version was really ugly and disappointing then you have the Spider-Man version that's literally just a red case with a white spider logo on it.

I don't know what the deal is with these but they're overly simplistic and just flat out boring, I thought the goal was to attract buyers?. Even as an adult (assuming that and teens is what they're trying to appeal to) I would have preferred that they went crazy with the "artwork" and had more color.

I say to celebrate Sony needs to make a PS4 that plays all the old formats would probably sell better than this garbage.

I dont like it at all tbh. it is way too plain. it hardly feels special in anyway,let alone marking such a special occasion.

I also find very cheap Sony hasn't even implemeted a freaking PS1 emulator for all of the PS1 classics I mean... C'mon even a Pentium III can do PS1

PS2 is looking good, but game by game? I mean, again, is not like the PS4 doesn't have enough power to emulate the ENTIRE console.

PS3 is where the problem starts... I don't think is possible *at all* but it's possible in some sort of way or another, altough PS1 and PS2 should be enough, I mean, again, c'mon Sony, is not that hard, you are the owner of the Source Codes of your consoles, was really big deal?
