    It defeats the stigma of buying one console per generation, which is how it's always been in most cases. I owned one PS1, one PS2, one Xbox 360, and one PS3 Phat. Being a performance enthusiast, I will never be happy with not owning the best hardware, same with my PC setup, so this kinda forces me to sell my old console, and upgrade. I am all for upgrades in an existing console, such as new drives, and slim versions with bigger drives, but not a fan of more powerful/less powerful consoles in the same gen, unless they are both available at launch, and I can choose which one I want.

    If they decide to launch a PS5, and a PS5 Pro out the gate, or an Xbox Two S and X at the same time, it gives people that want the best the option to buy it day one, where staggered releases just make it seem like they are trying to make more money out of their consumers by forcing people that want the fastest hardware to buy two consoles per generation.

    I will likely buy it, if it's a performance upgrade (GPU wise) since I want to get the most out of my gaming console and my games. I just don't think it's too much to ask to launch both versions simultaneously rather than staggered.

    Having 2 different SKU's would immediately push up the production costs.

    Sure, by what, 5%? I'd rather pay 5% extra for my premium console on launch, than lose 40% of my resell value by the time the higher performance SKU launches two years later.

    I'm for the mid cycle power up. Frankly if your mindset is one console per cycle then you can still do it. The fact is out of the gate the PS4 and Xbone both suffered in performance. That performance was mainly fixed during the mid cycle refresh. After all the idea was to create a console that was affordable to the masses. A few tweaks could have improved it but the cost would have boosted the system prices.

    As for the other mention of a premium console out of the gate I am not apposed to it but the tech might not be available such in the case of the X or the price will be double of the base console.

    I mentioned it before. The PS4 was a good compromise when it came to playing games at decent performance with decent detail over the costs involved in playing on PC. I feel the PS5 and NXbox will not be the end of the road but as far as detail in games are concerned we have been up against that wall for a while where the extra detail needs a lot more work.

    The performance issues might have been due to this being the first console that had to incorporate HDR, and 4K resolution, which wasn't a requirement on the PS3. The fact that the launch consoles suffered under these options, and some even suffered under 1080P means that they did not properly plan for that generation.
