Initially, I wasn't interested in getting a PS4 when I was considering getting a PS Vita nearly 2 years ago (iirc it was due to its price), but I've been really wanting one lately, especially since Sony's E3 press conference this year (which was awesome imo). There are some exclusives I would like to get like the Uncharted games, God of War III, Infamous Second Son, and Gravity Rush 2 (enjoyed the first one on the Vita a lot). 

The only thing I'm not so sure about is whether I should go for the PS4 Slim or the PS4 Pro (especially since I don’t currently have a PS4). What do you think? Here's a list of Pros and Cons I have for both systems:

PS4 Slim:

Pros:

  • It costs $300, which is $100 cheaper than the Pro ($160 if there was no game bundled with it)
  • Includes Uncharted 4, which is one of the games I'm interested in

Cons:

  • Not as powerful as the PS4 Pro
  • Has half as much storage space as the Pro

PS4 Pro

Pros:

  • Twice as powerful as the PS4 Slim
  • Has twice as much storage space as the Slim
  • Will have enhanced versions of upcoming games (like Horizon Zero Dawn) and games already out (like InFAMOUS First Light) with improvements like higher resolutions, improved performance, and improved graphics (depending on developer of each game)
Cons:
  • It is $400, which is $100 more expensive than the PS4 Slim
  • I don't have a 4K monitor, but I have a 1080p one.
  • No game is included with the PS4 Pro.
Edit: I have another question. Besides the ones I already mentioned on here, what other games do you recommend?

Well I would buy a Pro if I hadn't already bought a PS4 earlier this year, simply because I'd like the (presumably) more stable framerates and graphical enhancements to games like FFXV.
I don't care about the 4k thing as I won't get a 4K tv for a few years at least.



If you don't have a PS4 yet, you might as well get the PS4 PRO its just $100 more and is more powerful than the PS4. That's my opinion.

I don't really care that much about 4K either. I would rather see more performance inprovements and some graphical improvements than just 4K upscaling (though that depends on the developer of each game).



whit a 1TB HD model, you can pick a Ps4 pro for just a extra $ 50! PS4 pro is the easy choice here, IMHO.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

If you never had a PS4 - its best to go with PS4 Pro.

PS4 Pro, 400 is well worth it imo.

Edit: plenty of games out there you can get on the cheap, but if you don't really care about upcoming games being better on the Pro then get the slim instead.

Is the Slim for $300 just 500 GB? If so, then yeah that would have made the choice a lot easier for me.

Yeah. If I recall, some games I'm interested in cost $20 right now (like The Last of Us, God of War III, and Infamous Second Son). 

To an extent, I actually do care about games being better on the Pro, but it's more towards performance than graphical enhancements.

Yes it is. It also includes Uncharted 4.
