When I first heard about the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, I thought they were the dumbest things. Upgrading a console at the midpoint of a generation was unfathomable to me, and I think developers should design for whatever framerate they want rather than whatever gamers demand. 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.


I always thought this should have been a launch feature, but not to worry, it's available now thanks to the latest PlayStation 4 firmware update.

If you have a PlayStation 4 Pro, and you're playing one of those pesky games that haven't been patched for PRO PERFORMANCE, you can now activate 'boost mode' to make them perform better.


The PlayStation 4 Pro support patch for Fallout 4 arrived this week, delivering 1440p resolution, increased draw distances and enhanced Godray effects. YouTube's Candyland created a video demonstrating the small but significant enhancements players can expect from the patch.


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.

On one end: "meh, it looks alright."

On the other: "meh, it looks a bit pointless."

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?"
