No.

I have a PS4 Pro and a 4K TV and the difference from the normal console is small at best.

Xbox S does show signs of running worse than PS4 pro in tests so if I can't see it on that no chance on a Xbox.

I guess if you wanted a 4K blu ray player though might be worth it

Xbox one s does not play games in 4k. Only blu Ray and streamed video

Some people are so clever that they give such good answers that it makes you wonder if someone added vodka to there egg nog.

What the ps4 pro and xbox one s do is they UPSCALE the current generation of games to a 4k resolution which means that your have more lines on the tv to make the picture look better, and it does look better.

Its as simple as that by the logic of it the picture will look better because of the increased resolution.

Further to this though, I think lower res can look better in games - good res doesn't = good graphics and sometimes I think an overly sharp picture can make games look worse if anything, as it highlights the flaws in the graphics. I used to downscale my gaming PC on purpose - I felt the image looked more realistic this way, though obviously the standard PC gamer's approach is to only worry about having the highest spec and frame rate, and to hell with anything else.

I guess it's all down to user preference. If the Pro made the graphics better - e.g. used higher res texture mapping in games - then it might be worth it, but my understanding is that it's just increased res, which will obviously benefit a 4K blu ray using film as a medium but the jury's still out as to whether there's any real benefit to scaling the res up to 4K on the PS4.

Some games are noticeably different (ones that support HDR), though ultimately, the games don't play any differenty, so whether it's worth upgrading to an S is up for debate. If you think you'll use the UHD Blu-Ray playback (which the PS4 lacks for some reason - bizarre!) then it may well be worth it, otherwise it may be worth considering holding on for the significantly upgraded Xbox next year (the one that is capable of proper 4k gaming, unlike the S and PS4 which offer upscaled graphics). Before the PS4 fanboys start moaning, it's a numbers thing, the hardware is just not capable of doing proper 4k.

I have a 4k tv and an Xbox one s, I find it hard to believe you will notice any difference between a tv filling the whole screen with a picture or a settopbox/game box doing it. All they are doing is filling the whole tv screen so there isn't a black box around a smaller 1080p or less image in the centre of the tv.

I got this Xbox one s because if two things, I didn't have a gaming machine and may as well go for the latest one, and also wanted a 4k blu-ray player. With the Xbox one s you get two for the price of one

Why would PS4 fans in particular start moaning? Surely XBOX fans are just as likely to, if they're daft enough to think that either console could do true 4K gaming with their current specifications.

Lol @ the posters putting the XB1s and PS4pro in the same bracket. XB1s upscales a 900p / 1080p image to 4k, whereas there are quite a few native 4k games on the Pro such as The Last of Us, FIFA 17, Skyrim and Shadow of Mordor.

thanks everybody for your input, really appreciate it.

Wait for Scorpio

The XD80 is a partial HDR TV so you'll definitely see more colour range in games that support it (although not the expanded brightness range). 4K benefits are strongly dependant on viewing distance as well as the stuff mentioned above so that's harder to predict.

As SMG says though, I'd be waiting until the Scorpio version releases before deciding whether to upgrade or not.
