PS4 Slim for me.

My first reaction was hell no. But I have softened a bit since I will probably get a new TV over the next 6 months and Gamestop has a pretty sweet trade-in deal.

Still feel it's a halfbaked console but I am a sucker and if it enhances the PS4 experience for another year or two. I will probably bite. Still - want more game comparissons before I do it.



Yes, I'll buy one eventually. I sold my PS4 this month already. Probably going to buy one in December for The last Guardian. And I'll badly need it next year when finally all those delayed exclusives will be released.

For those buying a 4K TV, don't forget HDR because it's going to be very important next year.

Already got mine preordered. Also getting a 43 inch Sony Brava 4K HDR Smart TV to compliment it. :D

The XBR43X800D tempted you, I see.

 Yup. 43 inches is a comfortable size for a TV, it's 4K, and it's very comfortably priced. Cant wait to play my Pro!

I am interrested in buying a ps4 pro... doubt I'll pick it up day one. Will probably wait for some reviews. I think it's worth the investment given the current gen has still got at least another 2 years in it or so.



Probably not. It sounds like they'll be primarily pushing 4k instead of better framerate or graphics, and 4k is useless to me with my 1080p TV. Besides, I don't even care much about 4k. I have to admit that I haven't had a chance to try out 4k anywhere, but I expect it to offer less value than improved framerate or graphics. For all I care, I'd be happy enough with 720p, although 1080p offers a noticeable improvement.

Anyway, I expect there's going to be other improvements too, but it sounds like 4k is the big focus, and probably doesn't require that much extra work compared to creating new effects etc. I'm also not expecting devs to be too eager to improve framerates because you can see 4k but not framerate in screenshots.



Nah, no 4k, no point. Thinking I might upgrade my HD on my PS4 though, prep for early next year when all those great games come out (ME4, T7, FF12)



Hmm, pie.

I will when my 50" bedroom TV goes out. It's got two dead pixel rows right now. I'll put my 55" in the bedroom and get a 4k with a ps4 pro. Hopefully this will be a year or two from now because I don't really care to spend that much now. I should probably get some new glasses before I even worry about 4k-ish visuals. LOL

The funny part is probably half the people in this thread getting a 4K TV will never notice the difference between 1080p and 4K as it's a given that most of them are buying sub-84" 4K TVs. This is because the human eye cannot physically resolve that many pixels fully at a 9-10 feet viewing distance on smaller TVs. Great 4K marketing for TV manufacturers and Sony though. I'd say 75" is the bare minimum for a normal living room viewing distance to make 4K even worthwhile. The ability to run some games at 1080p 60Hz and HDR will be by far the bigger impact, but the PC does both of those better already.
