PS4Pro Announced, Lacks UHD Blu-Ray Player
According to some, the news that the PS4 Pro will not include an Ultra HD Blu-Ray player is a bit of a misstep. However it may not be as bad as it sounds, but for a $399 USD price point those that want a UHD Blu-Ray player in a console now look to the Xbox One S instead.

Considering, however, that the digital age is approaching at a rapid pace (not that our country's internet infrastructure is keeping up with it) the move not to include a UHD BluRay drive somewhat echo's Microsoft's initial plan to have the Xbox One be always online and push for digital games over physical media.

One thing is for sure, it will be interesting to see how the numbers for the One S, with Scorpio on the horizon, and PS4 Pro, after this announcement, play out. I can see a few people being disappointed with this decision but ultimately I feel the decision wouldn't have been made without a hint that UHD Blu-Ray's aren't being taken up as quickly as content producers would have liked.
