@  d2_s : (08 December 2016 - 08:09 PM) GT3 is possibly my favourite racing game of all time. Can't remember much if its menu system, but it couldn't have been worse than GT5's at launch - that menu system was terrible. Turn 10 certainly know how to deliver quality games on time, but for my money GT games have always felt better on the track and looked better. GT Sport looks to be carrying on that tradition on the visual side, it has undergone an incredible transformation since the last time I saw it. It's gone from looking medicore to possibly the most gorgeous looking racer I have ever seen. Here's hoping by the the time GT7 comes out, Polyphony figure out how to put into a cohesive and compelling package.
@  Brandino : (10 December 2016 - 03:04 AM) I stopped playing Gran Turismo games because the AI ran the same lines and they seemed so lifeless.   For me Gran Turismo has been left in the dust since the PS2 days...
@  d2_s : (10 December 2016 - 06:17 AM) Well, the PS2 days were a long time ago and if you take a real look at present competing products, they really aren't that much better IMHO.
@  ermac666 : (10 December 2016 - 06:45 AM) I always thought that the gran turismo games especially GT5/6 presented the sense of speed a lot better than forza. When the car moves really fast, you can hear the  wind sound effects and the car shaking . It feels so good. Not saying that forza doesn't have a sense of speed, but I like it a lot better than forza. I have always liked that aspect from the recent games. I also liked the GT replays a lot better.
@  Goldenheart : (11 December 2016 - 12:33 AM) Just saw Transformers: 30th Anniv. is now available on Blu-Ray! Sweet!
@  Goldenheart : (27 December 2016 - 04:47 AM) I hope everyone had a merry Christmas!  8)
@  Brandino : (28 December 2016 - 11:51 AM) Did anyone get any good games for x-mas?
@  TonyDP : (28 December 2016 - 09:37 PM) I got Recore ($20), Forza Horizon 3 ($30) and Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition ($30).
@  TonyDP : (01 January 2017 - 05:00 PM) Dear God, the load times on Battlefront are interminable; and when you get into a match you get thrown against players who kill you with one shot before you even see them! Either that or you just time out and get booted from the game. I will never again criticize Destiny's matchmaking; it's a masterpiece compared to Star Wars Battlefront's frustration-fest.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (01 January 2017 - 07:43 PM) Happy New Year, everyone.  And yes, Battlefront is awful.  Play Titanfall 2, instead.  It's the best multiplayer game in years, IMO.  As far as Christmas goes, Santa brought me the 20th anniversary Tomb Raider game.  Not as good as Uncharted 4, but still quite good.
@  Goldenheart : (02 January 2017 - 04:11 AM) Happy New Year Space! & Everyone else! No, no good games for me. Investing in the wife's career has gotten super expensive lately, (doctor) so no gifts. :( We did splurge on a trip to see her brother in NY for New Year's tho. We avoided Times Square tho.
@  colonel_j2020 : (02 January 2017 - 08:27 AM) Happy New Year all! Somehow I am still playing Rocket League and I'm not quite sure why.
@  kyle_5_16 : (03 January 2017 - 12:12 AM) Happy New Year! Rocket League is still pretty much all I play haha. It's so easy to pick up and quit quickly if necessary, and is fun and competitive. I dunno. Here's a recent vid (shameless self promotion lol) https://www.youtube....h?v=gFffvgwPRDM
@  d2_s : (22 January 2017 - 01:42 PM) Just a heads up, seems the moderator functions aren't working as expected and I cant get rid of the current round of spammers.
@  ermac666 : (28 January 2017 - 01:24 AM) Resident evil 7 is pretty damn good. I highly recommend it if you like horror games. It's creepy, the story is interesting, the ambient sounds are unsettling and the environments are well done. It's sort of a return to form. PS4 version runs at a solid 60 fps with no slowdown/lags.
@  ermac666 : (28 January 2017 - 01:25 AM) Gameplay is deep, and puzzles are pretty well paced. There is a very interestinfg "happy birthday" puzzle that I thought was a mind bender when I tried it the first time.
@  TonyDP : (13 February 2017 - 09:43 PM) That puzzle gave me fits, primarily because I could never figure out how to clean the dirty telescope.
@  ermac666 : (17 February 2017 - 11:38 PM) I just wanted to shout out that PS4 exclusive Nioh is pretty damn good. Very atmospheric and nice environments. Hack/slash gameplay is kind of like dark souls with some ninja gaiden twist. The game is hard, but not frustratingly hard. Ambient sound effects/music is well done. I recommend thi s game if you haven't got it yet. It's made by Team Ninja who also made ninja gaiden and dead or alive.
@  ermac666 : (17 February 2017 - 11:39 PM) Action mode is the way to play this game as it is a 60 fps, but at a lower res. Still looks good enough. Movie mode runs at a higher res, but the 30 fps feels slow compared to action mode
@  colonel_j2020 : (20 February 2017 - 11:59 AM) I just got a 1440P 144Hz GSync monitor a week ago and am so glad I did. The higher framerate is quite obvious but the gsync is somewhat unexplainable.  Its smooths things out so nicely when you aren't running a game of full framerate.  Also web browsing is just flatout nicer.

I definately don't regret picking up a PS4 Pro. I'll give more impressions later, but for a $560AUD box the results are excellent. The results vary from game to game, but a solid start IMO.

Games I've tries so far:

* Skyrim SE -  Native 4k @ 30fps with minor dips. Definately an improvement over the base mode.

*Deus Ex - Not entirely sure on the resolution, but hdr implementation was average and that nasty sharpening filter you can't disble hurts it. Certainly looks cleaner than the base PS4 version, but not a dramatic improvment IMO.

* Mantis Burn Racing - Native 4K @ 60fps with some minor dips when all cars are on screen. The developers plan to improve this via an update. Looks nice enough, but not a showcase game for the Pro.

* Rise of the Tomb Raider - Has 3 visual modes you can switch to at any time (even mid game): A 1080p frame rate unlocked mode that runs fairly smoothly most of the time even if it doesnt stay over 60fps consistently. A 1080p @ 30fps mode with all the bells and whistles and a 4K @ 30fps mode, that uses checkerboard upscaling. My personal preference is the 4K mode due to large jump in image clarity and the fact that it doesn't really look compromised to me. Of the 1080p modes I prefer the high frame rate mode as it looks perfectly good with the added plus of higher framerates - I don't mind variable framrates when they hover at the top end most of the time.

There are still plenty more games I plan to try - especially looking forward to testing VR - as soon as I find the time to do so. Will give more impressions soon.

I wonder if games have increased frame rates in the base mode though. Even though they down clock the processor to match the standard ps4, the newer architecture would have some benefits, no? XBOX One S had some benefits in frame rates, so I wonder if the same applies here.

Base mode is identical to running on a standard PS4. The CPU is downclocked and half the GPU is disabled. Eurogamer did a small feature on this. I was hoping for something similar to the xbox one s where some games get tangible benefits from the overclock, but Sony took a cautious approach to prevent breaking any existing games. I kind of wish it was an option the user could use at their own discretion much like the PSOne emulator on PS2/PS3 to allow certain features that improved things, but didn't guarantee stability.

It is what it is though. In pro mode some games greatly benefit, while others don't all that much. The ones that do benefit make it worth it for me. It gives a hint at what potential there is for future titles.

Tested some more games on the Pro and must say Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Infinite Warfare and Ratchet and Clank all look gorgeous and run spectacularly.

I heard a lot of people were gushing over how much infamous second son/first light has improved, and it may have the best implementation of HDR on the ps4 pro.  Uncharted 4 seem to be getting a lot of praise as well despite it being 1440p. I was wondering if you guys have tested these 2 exclusives out.

I have tried both Infamous games, Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us. The Infamous games were always gorgeous and the HDR certainly does add to it, unfortunately those games do take a slight, but very notcable frame rate hit when maxing IQ. You can opt for a high rame rate option, which downgrades lighting and effects a tad - kind of defeats the purpose IMO.

I am going to be honest, Uncharted 4 didn't blow me away. It looks cleaner and runs smooth, but Naughty Dog didn't really go all out bringing it to the Pro and lets face it, the base PS4 version was very nice as it is.

Uncharted may have not have blown me away, but The Last of Us is a whole different kettle of fish. It greatly benefits from the Pro and in my opinion showcases HDR moreso than the Infamous games. Doesn't hurt that it runs rather smoothly in native 4K and looks ultra clean. This was a really pleasant surprise.
