Let's talk about anything about video games, no matter what platform it is. What is your favorite game? Who is your favorite character? What are the recently released games? What is DLC (downloadable content)? How do I beat this boss? How do I set up my team?

@papadondon Saang branch pre? dati everytime sinasabi ko kung pwede magiwan ng number para ma advise kung may stock na, di na daw pwede, ang nag accommodate lang sa akin SM cubao and Shangrila branch pero mahaba pila.

Toys r us sa Shangrila, very accommodating and nice yung sales lady dun. Swerte rin pala R3 version pa nakuha ko.

Next year scorpio naman :twisted: My experience with the Pro has sold me on this iterative model of consoles.

I can't wait to see the 'I can't tell the difference between scorpio and PS4' threads to pop up :lol: Kung sa PS4 Pro pa lang yung negativity grabe na, pano pa kay sa Scorpio :lol:

Marami lang negativity sa Pro dahil marami pang di nakakapag adapt. Mananahimik yang mga yan or bu-bwelta ng opinyon yan pag nakapag adapt na. :lol:

latest praise of Ps4 pro from ARK dev

"What do you think of Sony’s PS4 Pro performance as a developer? Were you impressed by the hardware or not?

Very impressed with its performance, at a very reasonable price. We estimate it would cost at least $900 to build a similarly powerful PC, and that’s if you were custom-building it with extreme cost control. We estimate its raw GPU performance is similar to an NVIDIA 970, and along with CPU improvements and overall more memory, it’s a really high benchmark for console performance. Hats off to Sony for “crossing the Rubicon” of console hardware updates (bonus that it tends to improve performance in just about every existing title in the PlayStation 4 library)!"

I hooked up my pro to my lg 1080p tv and i can notice the improvements, although of course not as pronounced as on a 4k hdr set.

Uncharted 4 multiplayer, bf 1, and nba 2k17 are all noticeably sharper and cleaner. Bf1 amd u4 benefit from imprved frame rates.

If you're using a 1080p tv, i can honestly say that the differences are significant enough to warrant a puchase if you are an enthusiast, but if you have no problem with the ps4's output then i dont think the pro will blow you away.

That may change with the games in 2017, which will be more optimized for the pro, but who's to say. I think the pro will get a price cut with scorpio's launch next year, and for those who are still unsure, that would be a great time to buy.

Sabi ng Sony store mga 3rd week of January (nabasa ko lang sa ibang forum) pero di pa daw ito sure. Alam ko yung preorders sobrang haba na eh, so ang best bet mo is matiyempuhan mo Toys R Us or tignan mo if tumatanggap pa ng preorder yung Itech at DB.

Also, iwan mo din number mo sa mga Sony store, pero ewan ko if may pila na rin yun.

Alternatively, if you want to risk it, you can order from Amazon US and they will deliver it even here in the Philippines. May idadagdag ka lang for shipping and taxes, so roughly around 25,000-27,000 ibabayad mo. The drawback of this stragegy is walang warranty - but if it breaks in the first few days or DOA amazon is very accommodating and they have a good return policy.

Thanks.
Nag-pm na rin ako sa Sony Philippines kagabi at ito ang reply nila sa akin:

"Hi Snakemaru, we are aware of the high demand for the PS4 Pro and we are working towards bringing in stock. Please call your preferred Sony Center to confirm its availability before dropping by.

Sony Center Megamall: (02) 637-9974
Sony Center MOA: (02) 834-7232
Sony Center Glorietta: (02) 553-7673
Sony Center Filinvest: (02) 771-0051
Chat Conversation End


Once a week napupunta ako sa mall at kapag nagawi ako sa DB, iTech, Gamezone ay nag-tatanong din ako ng pre-order at how much. Ang nasasagot lang nila sa akin ng mga staff ay wala pa daw sa kanila information.

Ano ba yun fb name ni re-pax? baka pwede sa kanya.

May pre-order si Repax:

"Pre-Order
PS4 Pro R2 (New/Sealed)
Price - 25000
ETA - January 10-15"

Good deal na ba ito or antayin ko yun re-stocking ng Sony Philippine at mga stores?

Normally id say wait, but i know you have been eyeing a ps4 for a while, and honestly, malay ba nating kung kailan darating pa stocks ng ps4 pro (wtf sony).

The price is good (430 or so dollars yan sa amazon with tax and shipping so roughly 22,000 din or so). Reasonable yung dagdag for me.

Yung siguo kailangan mo lang tanugin yung warranty. Sa experience ko, if the first week, walang problema sa ps4, okay na yan.

It has been 3 months since I sold my PS4. Mukhang hindi gumaganda ang kalagayan ng supplies ng Pro. Balak ko sana bumili this coming Feb.

Considering the demand and the lack of supply, papatulan ko na yan.
My buddy from PinoyXbox agreed on P23k for the R1 unit he persoanlly hand carried for me from the US middle of last month.
No issues pa rin till now.

May offer yun barkada ko sa Canada.
25K pesos for PS4 Pro + MGS V TPP.
Send niya yun package thru regular mail with insurance.
ibigay ko na lang daw yun pera sa kapatid nya dito sa pinas.
Kaso paano naman yun warranty ng unit.

Hindi warranty problema mo dyan pre, yung condition ng unit via transit. Baka mamya mabagsak bagsak yan tapos pagdating syo may topak na yung unit. Kung ako syo, just wait it out na magkaron locally. Atleast may habol ka kung need ng replacement at warranty.

Nakabili na ako kanina ng PS4 Pro sa Sony Megamall.
22,900 with 2 years warranty.
Nag-try lang ako tumawag kanina just to ask kung kailan magkakaroon, sakto naman daw na may darating ngayon kaya ayun! 10 units lang daw yun dumating. Pagdating ko sa Sony, 3 kami bumibili ng PS4 Pro.

This is my first PS4 so if you care to share some tips and advices, I'm all ears.. ermmm eyes. hehe
