Thanks everyone for the advice. At the moment I'm still ensure. I looked towards the Pro for the best performance possible from PS4 exclusives and the likes of Red Dead 2 not available on PC. I have noticed how much the base PS4 struggles these days and even Digital Foundry recommend the Pro over the base for 1080p these days.

Hi folks,

So my launch PS4 isn't doing all that well these days and with some games struggling on the base PS4 I've been thinking about upgrading to a Pro recently for a better experience with the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 and other titles. Now I don't own a 4KTV so I'd be gaming at 1080p and have heard some positives regarding the benefits of using a PS4 Pro at 1080p. Thing is I wanted to know how others have got on with upgrading to a PS4 Pro and if it was worth it?

Want some genuine opinions. I had considered the Xbox One X, but a lot of their exclusives are hitting PC and I already have a decent gaming computer so I'm not sure it'd be worth it whereas PS4 as a lot of exclusives still.

Thanks in advance.

I'm new to the game but would love an invite, in-game name is MachoFantasticoPrime.

Still trying to get my head around the game. :D

Spider-man Into the Spider-verse 5/5.

As someone whose sick to death of Marvel/Disney's generic superhero movies, this was an absolute breath of fresh air. Some lovely visuals, great soundtrack and featuring some great touches, it's given me faith in superhero movies again.

Genuinely wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did.

Awesome news, congrats to Jeff and his wife. Hopefully he got a bunch of advice from father Caravella.

Not sure if to pick this up, the reviews have been positive and I enjoyed Awakening on the 3DS but not sure if it's really for me.

Sad news, my father actually told me about him being in Blake 7. I loved Contradiction, charming as hell. Rest in Peace.

So NetherRealm just released a video for the latest fighter in Mortal Kombat 11 and it's the return of Noob Saibot, one of my personal favourites. They also announced that Shang Tsung will be the first downloadable character to the game as well as fronting the returning Krypt. Here's an awesome trailer for Saibot:

It was really bugging me what his voice reminded me of, then I remembered this classic:

Part of me hopes this was intentional. That all said, awesome to see Noob back. Mortal Kombat 11 continues to look like it'll be a blast.

So this is a rumour making the rounds but a fascinating one at that. According to a site called Market Watch, Sony are in negotiations with Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two. According to Game Informer Sony are in "advanced board level discussions to acquire Take-Two Interactive in a mostly cash deal," such a deal would certainly have a massive impact on the industry. We've seen Microsoft making some big moves over the past year or so, are Sony about to follow? Under the Take-Two umbrella are the likes of Rockstar Games, Firaxis and Hanger 13.

Here is a link to the Game Informer article which goes into a little more detail. But this could potentially be huge. What do you think?

I haven't played the sequel, but I had a blast with the original Division and I played that solo. I really enjoyed the isolation and setting. I decided against playing the betas, but I'm still tempted to jump into this day one. Plus Ubisoft's support over the years was pretty strong which helped.
