Maybe he could sell a katana or three, just saying he’s 40 and probably doesn’t pass the stat check to crit with them anymore.

Fair. But it's honestly only one, and I have the signature edition of my katana because I'm such a huge Duncan MacLeod Highlander fan.

And thanks everyone. All kinds of blushing over here. 

 

At lunch today I'm going to go across the street to GameStop and pre-order the RDR2 PS4 Pro... apparently the trade-in deal is through October 28th, so I'll put everything down today, and trade in one of our PS4s on the 25th, then pick up the new one on the 26th. Can't wait!!! Thank you all so very much!!!

 

It almost makes me want to hold off on continuing Spider-Man until picking up the Pro.

Do you own a 4k tv?

Pre-ordered the RDR2 PS4 Pro bundle!!! All that's left is to trade in a PS4 next Thursday  and I'll be good to go.:sun:

 

You all rock!

 

Why upgrade to a pro then? I understand there is a lil performance boost but not having the resolution bump seems like a waste...imo of course.

There's a pretty substantial boost graphically, wireless (which is what I use), USB 3 for an external drive, and a HUGE jump for PSVR (which I also have). 

 

And games like GoW have performance boost modes on the Pro that are irrespective of resolution. 

 

While I'd rather play RDR2 on the X, our current lack of 4K, and the advantages mentioned above are the reason I wanted to jump to the Pro before the X.

I did the same and definitely think it was worth it considering you're getting a brand-new game worth $60 with a bundle, new hardware, new controller and so on. My PS4 was several years old at the time I did my trade for the GoW Pro bundle and I already know I'll eventually get a 4K TV so seeing how much I've liked this console so far, it seemed like a no-brainer to invest in 'the future'. 

 

I did that Gamestop trade-in deal. 

 

PS: Congrats @Emblazon, have fun with RDR2!

Getting the free game is what really put it over the top and got me to wait a week or so to get the system.

 

With our house, we have two of everything, and due to Triage's spine issues, whenever we play together or at the same time she exclusively gets the projector and downstairs systems (which are all hardwired) because she needs to lay down and play to not aggravate her spine (we went out and got our current couch specifically so she could always have a spot to lay down and still face the screen). This means I get the bedroom TV/systems... which is wireless, because the master bedroom is on a different level (2nd floor) and on the other side of the house from where the router is.

 

All that being said, we have two launch PS4s, mine is downstairs, and hers is in the bedroom. A few years ago we had a lightning strike hit right next to our house and knocked out a lot of power, and more or less fried her PS4--she sent it in to Sony, they "fixed" it, and sent it back to us. So, it's already a gimpy PS4 and only capable of wireless N, so that's the system that's being upgraded. Technically, it's her system being switched out (Congrats Triage!), but it's the system I do all my gaming on, and it's the one the VR is hooked up to. 

 

The upgrade is enormous across the board for us/that room.

 

As a funny aside, the way PS works within the same household is hilarious--the system downstairs is my "primary" PS4, the one upstairs is her "primary" PS4. I play her digital Destiny upstairs, and she has my disc version downstairs. My PS Plus expired, but because I'm on her "primary" system, I'm still able to use all online gaming features. I purchased all the Destiny expansions, and because she plays on my "primary" PS4, she's able to play all Destiny related content. :lol:. Now that we know how everything works, we'll only be getting digital from here on out, so we only ever have to get one of anything... well, aside from RDR2. :sun:

First you say you’ll donate to the PS4 Pro fund. Then you get called out and caught in a viscous lie. Now you’re throwing shade on @Emblazon happy birthday moment?  Bastard. Lol.
