Sony Explains Why PS4 Pro Doesn’t Support 4K Blu-ray

Sony PlayStation 4 pro

The PS4 Pro will be forever be associated with one of the biggest questions in gaming: Why on god’s green earth did a company that owns the rights to Blue-Ray not give its 4K gaming console an UHD Blue-ray player?

Seriously, why does the cheap, much less powerful Xbox One S have one but not the PS4 Pro? Sony has finally provided an answer.

In an interview with, The Guardian, Sony boss Andrew House said that consumers are moving away from physical media, making the ability to stream 4K a more important feature:

“Our feeling is that while physical media continues to be a big part of the games business, we see a trend on video towards streaming. Certainly with our user base, it’s the second biggest use case for people’s time on the system so we place more emphasis on that area.”

Instead of offering direct support for UHD Blue-rays, the PS4 Pro’s Blue-ray disc player performs high-quality upscaling of DVD and Blu-ray Disc content. It other words, it doesn’t offer the real deal.

The system supports 4K streaming apps for Netflix and YouTube, and more 4K streaming options such as Amazon Prime will be offered as they become available.

Unfortunately, for those that wanted the PS4 Pro to be an UHD Blue-ray player, Sony said it is not possible to add 4K UHD via a firmware update. Streaming 4K videos is your only option…

Is The PlayStation 4 Good For Casino Games?

Published

online-casino-for-gambling-games

When people think about the PlayStation 4, the first thing that usually comes to mind are big-name games like Uncharted and God of War. However, what few people know is that the console is also a gateway to many great and addictive gambling games.

While some games like The Four Kings Casino and Slots are apps, the fact that you can use your PS4 as an interface for the world wide web means you can also enjoy a plethora of browser-based titles without needing a PC, many of which can be found at betway casino.

Granted, the selection of such games will be smaller on the PS4 (or on any video game console, for that matter) than on a PC, especially when it comes to poker, but you will nevertheless have a lot to choose from.

Now, why would anyone want to gamble on the PS4 rather than on desktop or laptop, you might wonder? Well, the PS4 makes bragging to your friends about your exploits easier, thanks to the accessibility of social share buttons. When you play a great hand of poker or win a jackpot in slots, for instance, you can share images and/or video of the act a lot more easier than you can on a computer of any other type.

So, you now know that the PS4 can be used to play many different casino games, but does that mean you should? Social sharing aside, is gambling using the PS4 any fun? The short answer? Yes!

You will be surprised at how well gambling works on the platform, but it does take some getting used to. Video slots, for example, are as easy to play on a PS4 as they are on a desktop or laptop machine, while games like Blackjack and poker, where a single misclick can cost you big, don’t work quite as well but are still perfectly playable.

Have you played any casino games on the PlayStation 4? Would you recommend any?

New N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda Trailer is Intense, See it

Published

mass-effect-andromeda

The new N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda trailer that fans have been impatiently waiting for is finally here, and it’s intense.

We get to see more scripted and in-game footage of the game world, as well as ‘brother’ Ryder, his alien crew and what appears to be the main villain in action. It might have also confirmed the existence of Salarians in Andromeda.

The Andromeda Initiative recruitment page has been updated to coincide with the trailer’s release. It shows the user’s login details with the year 2184… the year just before the events of Mass Effect 2.

The Andromeda Initiative is scheduled to launch in 2185, the year Commander Shepherd returns from the dead (the beginning of Mass Effect 2). Three Ark ships, each containing three different species in cryo stasis, will leave the Milkyway for the new galaxy, with plans to wake up the occupants 600 years later.

Judging by the trailer, things don’t go according to plan.

Mass Effect Andromeda launches for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC in Spring 2017. Are you excited for the new adventure?
