Don’t be ridiculous, Sony: PS4 can’t compete with PC

As many of you will know by now, Sony has announced the PS4 Pro, serving as something of a stop-gap between this generation and the next (if console generations will even continue to be a thing after this one). Sony's 4K and HDR compatible console could be hitting the scene as much as a full year before Microsoft's Project Scorpio hits the scene, giving Sony a significant head start that is so massively important in this console arms race it and Microsoft have found themselves in.
