icon PS5 Pro developer verdict: ĎI didnít meet a single person that understood the point of ití
 

 
Enthusiasm for the PS5 Pro seems to be non-existent amongst most video game developers, with most claiming there is no need for it.

The PlayStation 5 will be celebrating itís fourth birthday this autumn, but it really doesnít feel like the mid-point of the generation Ė given the stock problems that marred the first two years and the recent paucity of first party releases.

Thatís just one reason why rumours about the PS5 Pro being released this year have enjoyed such a muted response, with few gamers feeling a mid-generation upgrade is necessary. And it seems most developers agree with them.

Shortly after returning from GDC, GamesIndustry.biz editor Christopher Dring appeared in a podcast, in which he claimed that when speaking to developers, ĎIíll be honest, I didnít meet a single person that understood the point of it.í

ĎDevelopers didnít seem to feel they needed ití, he said. ĎThey werenít really making the most of the PS5 in the first place,í he added.

Thatís pretty much exactly what most gamers have said, but while Sony has not made any official announcements the new console model has been rumoured for over a year now. Detailed technical specifications also recently leaked, which suggested it would be a smaller upgrade than from the PlayStation 4 to PS4 Pro.

Considering how obsessed publishers have become with growth recently, Dring also added that, ĎA couple of companies said: ĎThis isnít going to grow the market. This isnít going to move the needle.í

ĎThis generation doesnít even seem to have got started, let alone needs a mid-generation upgrade,í he concluded.

The PS4 Pro was relatively popular because it came out at a time when 4K TVs were becoming commonplace and so its ability to run games at a higher resolution seemed an important benefit. As However, as Dring points out, there is no obvious selling point for the PS5 Pro, for anything other than hardcore gamers.

Even then, the PS4 Pro accounts for less than 15% of the PlayStation 5 userbase, ensuring that the PS5 Pro will only ever be a niche product.

The only real question about the PS5 Pro is whether itíll launch alongside new first party games, but if that is the case then, unlike the console itself, it is being kept very secret.

Sony needs the money. That's why they're releasing this pro.

PlayStation fanboys are sinking the console. Nobody with a PlayStation buys games anymore because the fanbase finessed them into buying one too many "exclusives" they didn't like.

Final Fantasy isn't for everyone so if someone bought it on recommendation they won't be buying the sequels.
Same with the hardware.

PlayStation fanboys got people running out to buy PSVR hardware that died under a year and a $200 Portal streaming accessory, and they think people gonna rush out and buy a Pro... because it's PlayStation...the same PlayStation that's burnt them with failed hardware

I really wish the ps5 hand held would let me play my games on the go. I’m glad I didn’t get it.

I’m not getting the pro. It doesn’t make sense to

how can a person not know the point of a ps5 pro?

its less compromise.. instead of performance mode and graphics mode and having to choose one and losing out on the other- u improve it until there's no compromise

i played god of war ragnarok on ps4 pro and the diff between the performance mode and graphics mode was noticeable.. i had to leave it at 30fps for it to really look good

the more power we get, the less we have to compromise.. people on ps5 compromised less than me, and i compromised less than those on ps4 vanilla

why is such a simple concept being debated? ... oh yeah.. dusty x-bots with no life

I mean...its true there have been a lot of problems with people getting a PS5 and them being able to ship units. So a mid generation upgrade is dumb.

The only way this could really work is if they are confident that the supply issues are cleared up now and they want to launch the PS5 Pro to end the second half of the generation on as high of a note as they can. Like "sorry, but here is the ideal version we should have had."

Cant go back and fix the first four, but if they can make enough of them consistently and surprise everybody with some great first party titles, maybe they can have a better second half.

Until they start using new engines optimized for current gen, we will still be playing games at 30fps 4k, pro or not

PSSR may help with that but all it’s doing is upscaling lol. You don’t need PRO console to implement. If current gen used DLSS, things would look a lot different

why do you think it's a debate when the same guy who also reports good news about sony and pony's love it.?

if you accept the news he brings stating positive things about sony, then accept his statements when he reports bad news as well...

and this is his quotes about the pro, so why would there be a debate about something that came directly out his mouth that was recorded on a podcast?

no debate, what he's stating is fact!!!! unless he's lying of course, but why assume he's lying when ya'll ponies don't assume he's lying when reporting negative xbox news?
