    I traded in my old PS4 and 2 games for the PS4 Pro bundle EB Games has on at the moment for $299. I managed to get the last one in store and people were calling asking if there was any Pro's in stock when I was picking it up.

    Seems there's a huge shortage of Pro's at the moment in Australia.

    Went to grab a PS4 pro yesterday and checked with JB, Eb, Target at Doncaster and there was no stock. Apparently they've exceeded sales expectations and a new batch is due mid August. Hopefully they don't gouge on price when they're back in stock.

    got the last one at EB on monday lucky I rang ahead and got it put aside as was a kid trying to buy one when I turned up but lady said they dont have any I walk up go I am here to pick up PS4 pro and kids mum gave me a filth look when the lady behind the counter handed it over lol.

    I was just pure lucky there was a guy from that store at the other store I was at as the lady there said EB has none anywhere, he overheard it and goes well we had 1 this morning at my store, so he rang up and got it put aside.

    Why is there a rush on them, is there a game out or something?

    could it be a carry over from AMD not being able to produce enough gpu's?

    so my original ps4 is not outputting display first cold boot, then I press power button which puts it to sleep, then i wake it and it posts.. then load uncharted lost legacy takes AGES when you open game, like up to 10-15 mins, sometimes fails and says error remove disc.. I am secretly hoping my ps4 is on a downhill road to death and I can find justification on getting a pro..

    Anyone use a PC 4k monitor on their ps4 pro?
    I have a Hisense 70m7000 in loungeroom (4k HDR) but the input lag is a bit crappy.. so I am thinking a PC monitor.. a shame 4k HDR pc monitors arent out, and once they are will be $$$$$$$$ so I guess ill ditch the epic contrast and colors and stick with normal PC 4k monitor, any suggestions on which?

    also do you think EB games will do a trade in? or fully test it? (yes I am going to hell)

    They have never tested anything I've traded in. They just check all the cables and shit is there.

    Pretty much this. Brought in a faulty Xbox One & it wasn't an issue to get a new replacement. Also any controllers or cables you leave out or didn't re-pack they will just take from the new system.

    I grabbed a 55M7000 earlier this year to go with my Pro, playing Uncharted 4 certainly gave me some movement in the pants.

    Recently upgraded my 55" 1080p Samsung and repurposed it for another room. Put a new 65" Sony X85E to replace it, while I was at it, upgraded my yamaha version of receiver and replaced it with an RX-V683. So I can finally utilize my multizone/cabled speakers installed in my alfresco. And also finally hooked my surrounds, so I've got a full DALI set now.

    Decided to fire up Uncharted 4 which I've played before. I played the older onn PS3 but barely, never really got into them. But I love TLOU from ND. Anyway, 4k HDR with this display, fuck me dead I've been having late nights on this game.

    you should grab the Nathan Drake Collection - the remaster is great and imo at least the soundtracks of 2 and 3 were better overall.
