But as more games come out that push the limits of what consoles can do, I gotta say: Maybe upgrading isn't the worst idea.

In video game land the response to the PlayStation 4 Pro exists on a spectrum. It's a short spectrum. Extreme enthusiasm and extreme hate does not exist on this spectrum.

But outside of our little bubble things look a little different. I have a surprising amount of friends asking me this question: "hey Mark, hey Mark, hey Mark... should I buy a PlayStation 4?"
