So, tomorrow is Sony’s big PlayStation event. We know they’re announcing the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Neo. But they may have another bomb to drop, as there are rumors that the company is going to reveal a Red Dead Redemption remaster which will be console-exclusive to PlayStation 4. I’ve never played the game when it first dropped, so I would definitely fuck with this.
Nice! Sony is going to be release a Dual Shock 4 adapter for the PC and Mac. There was a long stretch where I wanted to use a DS4 to rock shit on my PC, but inevitably I gave up and just bought one for my XB1 controller. Alas, the thumb sticks are better anyways. (I find them better to the point where I had a friend mod out my DS4 thumb sticks for XB1 ones for when I played my PS4). Still, as a fan of Sony, I like seeing them get on this.
If these images from an online auction are any indication, it looks like Sony is going to be following Microsoft’s lead as far as console iterations. “Slim” version of current hardware this year, and a souped-up more powerful one next year. Also, if these images are legit, the Xbox One S or whatever looks wayyy sharper.
I love my PS4. But I’ve had beef with its UI for, oh, I don’t know, almost three years. Why can’t I pin things where I want? Why isn’t there an intuitive list of quick choices? Sony, obviously hearing my clarion call, is finally addressing the UI in its system update 4.00.
The Console War is heating up! Maybe. Maybe not. Probably not. But for the first time in a good goddamn while, the XB1 outsold the PS4.
I will buy this high-powered PS4. ‘Cause I’m a sucker. I will know what I’m buying next month, when Sony will reveal said high-powered PS4.
Sony has gone ahead and thrown us an obvious bone, acknowledging the existence and upcoming (sometime!) release of a more-powered PlayStation 4.
