Is performance an issue on the normal PS4 already? Are there even demanding scenarios to be had on consoles? And is the only visual upgrade selective 4K support?

Yes Visuals get pushed over performance on consoles
Yes many console games have areas of bad performance
No developers have lots of freedom in what they put.

If Sony weren't trying to push their bullshit half gen revisions and actually bothered to certify games properly, there'd be no problem getting games running well on PS4. Look at stuff like Titanfall 2, Phantom Pain, DOOM, Wolfenstein, Uncharted 4 for great looking games that run excellently on PS4.

It's very much down to devs writing bad code.

I'm not going to do an effort/long post about how good Bloodborne is but just my experience.

I bought Dark Souls 1 on PC a few months after it came out and didn't click for me. In 2014 I have it another try amd hooked me so bad that I spent months playing it on PC and 360. I got DS2 SOTFS (PC) and loved it too and for the first time I was hyped for a new game. Got DS3, loved and this December I went ahead and got a PS4 to play Bloodborne.

With all the previous souls games when I beat a NG cycle I took a few days break before playing again either NG+ or a new character. With Bloodborne I beat Orphan of Kos and the Gehrman/Moon presence duo, went to NG+, beat cleric beast, Gascoigne and just quit to make a new char.

Bloodborne is so good that if you like any souls game, you have to get a PS4 just for it.

Bloodborne is like you throw a Lovecraft book with Penny Dreadful and a spice of Van Helsing, mix all up and you get a big awesome thing.

Cert is more for checking that the button prompts say the right thing and the game doesnt crash in ways that break security of the console. Quality assurance is on the devs for all platforms and performance issues were all over ps3 which was just one console

The bottom line is: get a pro if you have a flexible entertainment budget, get a slim if your entertainment budget is tighter. I saw some slim bundles around the holidays that were totally decent and I would recommend them without reservation to friends who try to keep their video game spending at more reasonable level than I do. Two good games (usually UC4 and GTA5 or something) plus an extra controller with the console, all for 250 USD is a great deal for people gaming on a budget.

Speaking of UC4, I got back into the single player campaign today and I'm really enjoying it as I close in on the last chapters. The game mechanics are the best in series even if the story isn't as fun as UC2's. I love how Nate's doubt and guilt actually play into the game narrative as you hit more dead ends and slip more. Also the rope grapple really is just so neat.

I'm on chapter 14 of UC4. My first Uncharted game. It's fantastic. How do 1-3 hold up in comparison in the collection? It's gonna be hard to step back from these visuals. That drat chase scene, jeeeez

U1 will seem like caveman poo poo. 2 and 3 hold up really well. I'd say 2 and 3 are better than 4 imo. They look great on PS4.

1 is relatively primitive but still playable, 2 is maybe better than 4 and 3 is good but kind of all over the place story-wise.

Did the PSVR's supply ever catch up with demand in the US? It certainly hasn't in Japan.

It doesn't seem so, but they're readily available 2nd hand at cost

What did the launch bundle cost that came with everything? $500? yep $500

That's a good OP, OP.

About the KS8000 60" though, IIRC all we really know is that it's probably not a Samsung panel which might be a good thing rather than something to be avoided.

From the graphs the viewing angle is the only thing the 60 inch is worse at than all the others. It's actually better than some of the others in certain areas.

Thb I have the 60 inch. I didn't have enough in my budget to go up to 65 and I wanted to upgrade to the biggest TV I could afford because I want to keep this one for a while. The 60 inch is great and I like the mostly black bezel. It's very low key.

mafia 3 got a pro patch to native 1440p with super sampling for 1080p screens
improved motion blur effects and shadows
fixed frame pacing now on all ps4 models
the rough frame tearing from base hardware is fixed on pro but trade off is 2-3fps drops in scenes that have alpha effects out the rear end like the klan rally with all the smoke and fog. dev got too greedy. still a solid 30 in regular gameplay

After upgrading to the Pro I felt the improvements were downplayed by everyone. I primarily play on a 1080p Bravia and my games run and look dramatically better than my launch system. Much less fan noise too.

Mafia 3 is a new game. The Last Guardian plays as it should. Watch Dogs 2 and TitanFall 2 look like pre-rendered CG. Maybe my launch system was dying but I'm really digging the performance increase from the Pro.
