What is up with Apple and Sony and their press events and taking away things from their products that people want. First Apple has the courage to take away the 3.5 mm headphone jack and now Sony decided to leave out the 4K UHD Blu Ray Player from their 4K PS4 Pro. Seriously Sony, this is probably dumber than Apple getting ride of the jack.
Sony’s response to all of this “be cool man, you can stream in 4K, you don’t need to use physical media.” I’m sure some of you out there are like “they have a point” and in the future they might, but streaming 4K unless you have a really high bandwidth otherwise it’s not going to work that well. In the here and now having a UHD Blu Ray player in your 4K gaming system (like Xbox One S) would make sense, especially for Sony since it’s their tech, not to mention you can get a One S for $100 less and it has the UHD Player in it.
So what do you think dear reader? Does the lack of a UHD player affect your decision to possibly get one? If you don’t have a One or PS4 which one would you lean towards and S or Pro? If you have one or both of the One and 4 which midgrade would you lean towards or are you waiting to hear more about the Scorpio (I am), let us know in the comments below.
