Hoping Horizon zero dawn is great, very positive previews so far. Never enjoyed the killzone games but doing something new will be good for the developers.

Here's a early list of what "Boost mode" is doing for non-Pro games, I bet people who went for slims instead are kicking themselves now. I didn't see this coming but I did warn you in other way....

I also noticed improved loading times on Sky Force Reloaded, as I mentioned a few days ago.

Funnily enough, FIFA wouldn't benefit from boost mode as it got patched for the pro to run native 4K and 60fps

I'll keep an eye out for Digital Foundry's report. The vague starry-eyed slobbering in that article is fun but I'd prefer a more objective view.

Can anyone recommend a ps4 pad with paddles? Such a shame there isnt an official "elite" pad, the 2 licensed ones that came out last year are both wired which is a massive no for me, the Scuf looks nice (pricey though) but appears highly unreliable...

There are some razor pads which are 'official' in that they're Sony endorsed. Not sure if they have paddles or not though from memory.

Looks like Boost Mode is pretty useful for smoothing out performance on games with iffy framerates. Hopefully MS does the same thing with the Scorpio. That would be a trend I could get behind.

I think that would have to be a certainty now, this proves it's not that hard to do with the this style of hardware and now MS have a 6ish month warning as to have it ready for whenever they start building Scorpio.

I would have liked DF to look into loading speeds but at least they mentioned the faster texture loading.

Yeah its annoying they don't have the option to be wireless. I saw that Sony had refiled a patent for an elite controller last year but seems nothing came of it and apparently its not the first time they have filed such a patent.

The xbox elite pad has such a high rep seems odd Sony havent brought one out themselves :/

Other visual touches too, apparently (for those of us without 4k TVs).

Got it as a PS+ freebie, but never actually played it!

Good excuse to give it a go though!
