This is a missed opportunity. A PS4 Slim bundle would've done much better than this ever do.
Sony is selling "value", they know you better off investing in a Pro at this point in the gen hence the hard push and Pro bundles. This late in the gen i would not tell anyone to buy a base PS4, its too late for that, go buy a Pro if you in NA
I think base PS4 still holds up nicely given how underperowed this generation was supposed to be 5 years ago.
5 years later 2018 games like God Of War, Fary Cry 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Spiderman, Detroit Become Human and soon Red Dead Redemption 2 all run in native 1080p and all of them have almost solid 30 fps lock.
RDR 2 being huge interactive open world will have some frame drops for sure, but that's expected even on the Pro in some scenarios.
PS4 Pro essentially only doubles the resolution (4K checkerboard) in RDR 2, and I don't think CPU clock boost will help the Pro much compared to Slim.
