Have you guys had a chance to see the PS4Pro live in action? Is the visual upgrade substantial enough to merit the cost of entry? It's very hard for me to tell because I'm watching the console reveal on a very old and very low resolution TV. If you can actually see a decent jump in graphical performance, I might go ahead and get it. I was going to purchase a 4K TV in the near future anyways. Honestly, I do think buying a console upgrade every 3 years or so is still a heck of a lot cheaper than PC gaming. Back when I had a gaming rig, I would swap out the video card once every several years, and that would typically run me about $300, which is close to the ask for the PS4 Pro.
You wanna take a look at this article. It explains pretty well, what the PS4 pro has to offer as an 4K capable console.
Pros and cons pairing the console with an 4K capable TV.
At the end, it relies completely on the user if he wants to go with Sony's up-scaling technique over a 4K capable RIG.
Obviously we will know more if the console hits the market.

I had my previous PS4 console for almost three years without any problems at all.
From this point of view, Sony seems to have done a fantastic job!
