    @superdelphinus The Last of Us plays a bit like a shooter if you choose to do so.

    Play on the higher difficulties and there's next to no ammo and it becomes the best survival horror ever made.

    Uncharted 1 is indeed a shooting gallery, awful game.

    Prey or Doom next?
    It really depends on what you are in the mood for. Both are among the best ever of their respective genres, but are at polar opposite ends with regards their experiences.

    Prey might be better if you want a palette cleanser after CoD as it's a slow, cerebral affair, with a focus on atmospheric exploration. But if you are still amped for adrenaline fuelled shooting, you want Doom.

    Yeah I'm not totally sure what I'm in the mood for. I will say I have previously played Doom and sunk a few hours in. Don't know if I still have my save file though. I'll probably go for Prey as I watched a review today and it looks great. I already know how good doom is :)

    If I had a 4k tv and a PS4 today, I'd probably buy the Xbox Pro thing instead. It plays 4K movie discs and is better for multiplatform games at 4k I'd expect.

    I have a Pro already and only a 1080p screen, and I like it but I just wanted to buy a thing 9 months ago, it wasn't a well-thought-out purchase.
    The 4K Blu Ray playback is nice to have but at mostly 25 for a movie, some of which are barely better than the normal BR, it's nothing to shout about.

    Well I'll give up on prey. Sunk a few hours in and for some reason just didn't enjoy it at all. I'll move onto Doom or maybe start Yakuza 0

    Push through the opening hours if you can. I was cold on it after playing the demo which covered the start of the game, yet it's battling Nier as my GotY after giving it a chance. If you like System Shock/ Deus Ex kind of gameplay, it's really special.

    But Yakuza's good too :)

    I finished Prey and thought it was OK. Doom on the other hand is bloody incredible and I finished it twice. I very rarely finish games twice.

    @SomaticSense

    Yeah I get the sense it will get better but I guess I'm just in an impatient mode at the moment where I want an instant fix. To be honest I might just save doom and other multi plats as I'm more than likely going to get an Xbox one x in the new year with a 4k TV so for now I'll just start on the exclusives I've not played. Mainly Yakuza, Persona 5 and I've still got danganronpa 2 to play as well.

    Hmm, Doom is one of my fave games this gen, I'm about an hour into Prey and it's a snoozefest so far.

    Oh, well get on Danganronpa then, then immediately buy Danganronpa 3!

    So after much thought I've decided not to invest in a PS4 Pro. Happy with my standard model.

    Does anyone know if you can transfer the data from a 2tb PS4 to a 1tb Pro with a USB external drive using a ethernet cable?

    Jeez my pro sounds like a plane while playing fortnite.


    Any recommendations on any 4K games on the pro?

    Could go either way bob?
  • Deleted user 16 November 2017 16:58:56
    Well, after much thought I've decided against investing in a Pro. The standard PS4 I currently own is more than enough for what I need. All this hullabaloo around resolution and framerate just isn't my bag and there isn't enough else about Pro that makes it a worthwhile purchase, so it'll just be a waste of money on my part.

    Thanks to anyone who threw some pointers on the console my way. Appreciated.

    I think if Sony made a totally silent Pro for an extra 50 then I'd upgrade. I'd pay more for pixels & silent running, my current model is offensively loud.

    Er, that 50 surcharge or alternatively Sony don't cheap out on build quality in the first place on their "premium" device. My Pro has worse build quality and heat / noise levels than my OG PS4. Offensively loud is a good description.

    Pretty sure you can search for Free to Play on the PSN site.

    The list it showed me didnt have Let it Die on it so seemed the menu's dont show everything, also those dynamic themes and stuff seemed alright.

    Just a case of giving the console filled with stuff so a nice site with links seems easier, a bit like this for Xbox

    I picked up Wolfenstein II today and the console sounds broken. I know I've complained lots in the past, but this is actually astonishing how loud it is. Console is in an open space and my place is pretty cold too (how I like it).

    Really wish they added the option to run all games in base mode so it wouldn't be so loud. Or you know, spend more that 25c on the cooling system.

    @FuzzyDucky After trying Wolfenstein 2 out yesterday I finally decided enough was enough, so I'm sending my Pro back to Sony for repair; I'm used to the thing being loud but I genuinely couldn't hear the game over the sound of it - all from a cutscene!!! Had to double my speaker volume (VERY LOUD) and even then I couldn't make out dialogue.

    Was hoping to just get it replaced but apparently that's not going to happen. Sony support asked if it was a new thing and I told them it's been a consistently noisy piece of crap but that certain games / situations make it entirely unbearable.

    If it weren't for the wealth of Sony exclusives I would have defected to MS a long time ago as this is now my fifth noisy as piss PS4... and I have it set up in the middle of a big desk with nothing else near it.
