Big news came out April 6th when the official specs of Project Scorpio was released. Now that we know the specs of PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio, the question is for any gamer, what should I get, PS4 Pro or Project Scorpio?
Well let’s take a look at the specs for each one.
Scorpio—Eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz
PS4 Pro—Eight Jaguar cores clocked at 2.1GHz
Scorpio—40 customized compute units at 1172MHz
PS4 Pro—36 improved GCN compute units at 911MHz
PS4 Pro—8GB GDDR5
PS4 Pro—1TB 2.5-inch
Scorpio—4K UHD Blu-ray
Let’s just say that the specs for Scorpio is impressive just by themselves and it is a huge improvement from Xbox One & Xbox One S. So which should you buy? I would have to go with buying both. Even if you are a fan over one console more than the other, having both consoles does have it’s advantages. By having both, if there ever comes a time when you want a specific game and its only on PS4 Pro or Project Scorpio you can get the game and not feel left out about having that game that will never come out on your preferred console. Also another good reason to have both consoles is if you have a family full of gamers, while one’s on one console, someone can be on the other console. If you are a Playstation person, having the Scorpio would be nice just for the Xbox exclusives and the 4K Blu-ray player.
If you have the PS4 Pro already, then you’re halfway there. The only thing that is missing from the details of Project Scorpio is the good old price tag. Once that is announce, its up to you if you want to get it right when it comes out or wait the price drops a bit. Now if you are like and are the type that usually waits some time after a new console is released, that would probably be for the better. Not only would you have time to save up for the console, it would also give time for the developers to fix the major bugs and issues that could happen at the console launch.
Now having both PS4 and Xbox One, I find that each console does have its own advantages over the over. There is always the exclusives of each console and if there is ever a time when you are looking for a game that is suppose to be on both consoles and the place doesn’t have it for your preferred console and you want that game right then, you can always get it for your other console. Then there is the OS of each console. Each one has its own nice design and each console can do things better or differently than the other console that makes me wish that it should be on both consoles.
Overall, you should buy both PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio just so you use the advantages that each console possesses even if you just want one of them just for the exclusives that it has then it is totally worth it just to get as long as you enjoy the game and the gaming experience. I’m not saying to go out and buy Project Scorpio the moment it hits the stores, though if you want to, go ahead.
Usually I would wait some time before jumping into a new console so that way I can kind of make sure that any issues it might have won’t be much of a factor by the time I would get it. If anything else, I would wait about a year before getting the new console plus it might be a tad bit cheaper. There is probably some of you who are like me and would wait about a year or so before getting the newer console and that’s cool and others who buy it the day it launches and that’s cool too. As long as you get them and enjoy the gaming experiences with each one is all that matters no matter what console you prefer over the other one.
