Just bought a 4k TV, does anyone recommend PS4 Pro? I have a normal PS4, I only really use it for FIFA, GTA, COD, maybe one or two other games.

Anyone got one?

    Same boat as you but cant justify buying the pro. Would like to see xbox scorpio specs tomorrow coz they say it will run 4k at 60fps

    I can't justify, to myself, buying the pro. Until there is a noticeable difference in display of my in-game playing, I just don't see the point.
    Would love some to sell me on it though...
    Anyone? Please... o:)

    Yh I kind of really want one so I can get the full potential of my TV, but... I really doubt I'm techy enough to actually know the difference..

    You can see the difference quite clearly. My mates reaction when he first came here and saw Fifa on my screen was genuinely like this -> :o

    Hm this post enough might be enough to convince me ha! If as you say it's a clear difference that I would notice, i'll happily get it.

    How does it work with all your save data. Use the same PSN and it will all transfer over? Does this include stuff you've downloaded from the PSN Store?

    You'll have to download it over again but you obviously won't have to pay for stuff that you've already bought

    And stuff like my FIFA Pro/previous data should transfer over also? Thanks man.

    All depends on what kind of 4k TV you got, how much input lag it has in game mode. I'm personally waiting a few months, hoping something comes out that has under 25ms. I haven't seen one 4k TV with under 30ms yet, a lot of them have ridiculously high input lag. https://www.google.ie/amp/www.vg247.com/2017/03/23/the-best-tv-for-ps4-pro-and-xbox-one-s-4k-gaming-with-hdr/amp/

    I have this TV:

    It says input lag is 20ms, but not sure if that's what you're taking about? @Retro_G

    Looks like a great TV mate, good choice. I hadn't checked in a few months, looks like lot of new models have decreased the input lag significantly.

    Cheers man.

    I've ordered my PS4 Pro, probably shouldn't have been convinced so easily but oh well ha. Cheers!

    Enjoy mate, that Horizon game is meant to be the best looking 4k game.

    If you purchase a PSPro and keep your standard PS4 there is data transfer option using a LAN cable, (youtube is your friend) mine took 9 hours to copy all the data.

    Way too much input lag on a 4K tv to play FIFA. Much better off with a 1ms monitor for £100.

    Cheers mate. Do you use an ethernet cable and plug both ends into each PS4? I take it that's much quicker than using wireless

    I see no point in the pro unless they can upgrade the blu ray player to 4k.
