That's not my concern, I'm a console gamer. I am content with 'nice enough' graphics and a _consistent goddamn platform_ they are 'breaking the rules' of console gaming and it's crappy.
As you said, may as well become a PC gamer, this is not how console is meant to go. It's a very poor move in my opinion. Bad for gamers who just want to relax and play, not be concerned with "is this version the best?"
What you are saying directly flies in the face of that though. Your last sentence even says "Bad for gamers who just want to relax and play, not be concerned with 'is this version the best?'" What do you care if the PS4 Pro is out now? You bought a PS4. You're sitting there saying you should be happy with it because "console gaming" and yet you're upset that a newer version (akin to a new graphics card in the PC space) came out. I don't get it.
That's a little but disingenuous, Jack. You're not seriously arguing that he should be happy with a PS3? "You can still play all the games if you still have a working console, right?"
It's a given that at some point in the future there's going to be a game that requires the Pro, whether that's Sony's intention or not.
On a more personal note, I've always wanted a game console, but every time I save up the money for one I use it to buy a top-end video card, which is oddly around the same amount of money. It's happened every cycle since the PS2 came out.
Then again, the only remaining console exclusive I've cared about it Red Dead Redemption, and the jury isn't out that it won't still get a port someday.
