PS4 Pro Uniformity
One of the big moves that Sony needs to make soon is in regards to the recently released PS4 Pro. For those who have no idea what that is, it’s essentially a more powerful PS4 that offers developers greater options when it comes to fine-tuning their games, such as better load times, smoother framerates, and even up to 4K resolutions among other things. The issue is that not many developers have been putting this new power to use, leaving the PS4 Pro feeling simply like a more expensive, standard PS4. That’s not to say that no studio has wielded the power; Sony’s own first-party studios have shown what the box can do with Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. However, it’s the wild west when it comes to third parties and indies.
Perhaps Sony could provide resources to help smaller studios utilize the new technology. Or, they can make the capabilities of the machine clearer to developers and provide incentives to utilize the power, providing a more uniform delivery of games on the platform. Whatever plan they move forward with, making the PS4 Pro a decidedly better option is a must if they want to make it as successful as the standard PS4.
