    Most of the time Pro runs at better resolutions than PS4. Horizon Zero Dawn performs at higher resolution on pro. More games are not exactly coming to my mind but I have seen various reviewers citing that game is running better on Pro.

    Maybe its happening because these games are not optimized for Pro yet?
    Hey bro. While comparing the frame rates check the resolution too and how is it being rendered. Many titles on PS4 works at 900p or else use a technique called checkerboard tech(same used in PS4 for few titles for gaming at 4k ) and upscale to 1080p. PS4 Pro on the other hand plays all games in native 1080p afaik. Few game developers have came out with patches to make use of PS4 Pro Hardware. Many haven't. And in some games which are not graphically intensive, there wont be any difference. Also all these games you cited are already released games. Future games will definitely make use of the PS4 Pro HW for better performance in 1080p. So keeping all this in mind, PS4 Pro makes a better choice even for 1080p gaming. If money is a constraint only then get the cheapest regular PS4.

    If you have a TV that supports 4K HDR, get the PS4 pro else the Slim will suffice.

    General Re: should I get PS4 Pro or PS4 Slim?

    Thank you @Stormbringer and @thetechfreak for your inputs,

    So the way I see it (finally!), there is no use for me to spend extra on PS4 Pro. Reasons being:

    1) I don't own 4k display and I really have no interest in getting it because I personally feel its more of a marketing gimmick rather than being an actual improvement.
    2) The Pro is not native 4k. It just have much better upscaling technologies than a standard 4k TV. Well, its common sense because Pro is approx. 30% faster than standard/slim version with exactly same hardware. That alone cannot make it to deliver 4 times of present pixels count.
    Link to source: PS4 Pro Upscaling and Native 4K: It's Hard to Tell the Differenc . Somehow, even if I get a 4k display in future, I know I'd be happy with TV's upscaling technology.
    3) I don't know for sure, but the guy in above video said that PSVR will work with PS4 as well, it won't be exclusive to Pro version. Anyways, I already own a gaming system and I would anyday get VR gear for my PC rather than for my console, If I ever get into VR.
    4) HDR feature is in for every PS4 variant. So, that is also checked.
    5) In last, the Pro is supposed to give more stable FPS with *little* better graphics improvement than standard/Slim, which is the only point I am considering. However, I personally don't think that is good enough to spend extra.

    Considering all points, the deal of getting Slim @ 24k rather than getting Pro @ 39k is just too sweet!

    okay guys, so I finally ordered Pro version. I thought far off and concluded, maybe it will become one of the primary reasons to buy a 4k TV at some point of time

    I'll get it by 8 PM today.
    Will share pics as I get it.

    Thanks!

    Ok, got it and tried Uncharted (Nathan Drake collection). I never played on original PS4 but this is definitely superior than playing on xbox. The overall UI, graphics system is much better. However, I think the xbox controller is much better than PS one in terms of button response and gripping.

    Some pics:

    Congrats. Yes, playing with PS controller will take some getting used to it but its nice as well. Now buy Horizon Zero Dawn, Bloodborne etc exclusive and play them.

    Thanks @gameranand ! yes I have my eyes on sales for PS4 games now
    My hands are big and I have this feeling that PS4 controllers are designed for smaller hands, whereas xbox controllers are absolutely perfect in every term. Maybe because Sony is Japanese (Asians usually have small hands) and Microsoft is American (people with bigger hands)
