Your not making a lot of sense. The reason Sony and MS released the pro models last gen was because the base consoles were very under powered at the time of their release. That isn't the case with these consoles so why would they repeat the same thing?Ok....again that has nothing to do with their R&D, its like questioning them designing PS6 as if that team's job is to make PS5's in a factory or something lol
They are correct to continue as normal as I don't think they can do much the whole chip shortage thing, that has nothing to do with the R&D team, that isn't their job to even sort any of that shit out, it would be like getting mad that you hear Insomniac is working on Spiderman 2 and be like "wasting resources to make Spiderman 2, when they should be out harvesting PS5's" lol
Its completely irrelevant to those teams man, nothing to do with them.
MatrixReloaded101 whhhhhat? "Why not the next Playstation instead of a pro?"
This thread has made me laugh so hard, my stomach hurts. I think its even more odd that some are asking questions to things, answered last gen.
So let me help everyone out here.... we got PS4, PS4 Pro, PS4 SLIM (yes they can do that all at once) and get this....PS5 was also being made.
Its....its almost as if they have more then 1 thing going on.... why even ask such a weird thing? Why not just apply exactly what happened last gen? That is the best answer I feel anyone can give as it makes more sense then believing they can't do both, when they just did both last time.
If you ever want to know what a company might do, pay attention to what they've done in the past. Its usually the best way to guess what might happen and I see that they'll just likely do PS5 Pro and have another team working on PS6 and other designs and such. None of that would be shocking even in the slightest as we've gotten new skus and redesigns every generation by PlayStation, I see nothing different hear to sugguest its now become an either or.
Business decisions can change based on the market. It is foolish to think Sony would just blindly follow what they did last gen without considering the current situation with chip and console shortages.
The optimization of a lot of games released so far for both consoles has been all over the place. I think things will get more consistent as devs start to get a better handle on how to develop for next gen consoles. Especially when they stop focusing resources on the PS4/Xbox one games.Have you slept under a rock this last year?
We're already back down to 1440p for demanding games and actual "next gen" stuff like the matrix demo can't even hold 30 fps at an internal 1080p.
There'd be room for 2 pro updates within the gap to the 3090 alone, and even that one will not be a guaranteed 4k60 once the new gen finally gets going.
