4k/PS4Pro

Anyone have a 4k TV and playing a PS4 Pro? I'm wondering if there's a noticeable enough difference for the cost to upgrade a TV and a console. I've got a perfectly decent 50 inch Vizio and your standard PS4 and it's great. Doing the trick. Is it worth the $$$$ to upgrade?

As I am xbox I cannot truly answer your question ... but ... I went with xbox 1x (scorpio limited edition) on day of release, I used it for several days with my old monitor, wasn't sure myself about 4K either, a friend told me what a difference 4k made to his gaming, decided to bite the bullet and buy one, I went with the monitor, research told me TV's could add up to 20 or 30 milliseconds to the lag, monitor I have is a 1 millisecond delay.. wow, what a difference, main game is Destiny2 atm, 4K blew my mind ... highly recommend the upgrade, its worth the $$$ or £££ ....

I have a 4K tv, but I don't have a PS4 pro. I still have the year one PlayStation 4 that released in November 2013. It doesn't have any problems so there's no point in me buying a pro. So I don't know if there's difference.

From my experiences it is all about the presentation.  It won't make you a better gamer, but it will give better visuals if you are into that.  A friend upgraded for The Division and told me that I needed to do the same.  I went over to his place and saw it.  I still don't see the need for the upgrade, yet!

Honestly, the PS4 isn't worth the upgrade unfortunately. The cost is more for a very subtle difference, and you would just be throwing away money for a larger cost in my opinion. However, if your one of those people who need the latest hardware at all costs, then go ahead, just wouldn't recommend getting the PS4 Pro if you have the PS4 already, it's not worth upgrading too. It's fine if you want to buy the PS4 pro, and you don't currently own a PS4 in general, then yes, but upgrading from standard to Pro, isn't worth it in my opinion.

Thought the question was more about tv/monitor 4K upgrade, not the console itself ?

Thanks y’all. Maybe I’ll try and upgrade just the TV for now.

Well, if your thinking about running a 4K TV with a standard PS4, I wouldn't do it, you won't see good results. Honestly, I would only use a 4K TV with the PS4 Pro. However like I said, if you have a standard PS4, and a good looking 1080p LCD TV, then it's NOT worth the upgrade to go 4K TV and PS4 pro when your set up is good enough.

You will be paying more money for the PS4 Pro, and big money for a 4K TV with very little difference, for a big cost. However, if you have a 4K TV you could use that to watch 4K movies and stuff which looks great. 

At the end of the day, it's your money and you can buy whatever you want, but my advice is save your money and don't do it, your set up is great enough, and it's not worth blowing all that money for a very subtle difference.
