Why? The exclusives are... hold on, wait, what exclusives? Are there any?!
ms wants to push cross play, thus no need for exclusives, also some of the triggered pc gamers have moved to console gaming

4K is a lousy and confusing term in general, why the market didn't maintain the name convention and just call it 2160p is beyond me. Even worse, because we now have non-standard sized dimension monitors, these terms are getting more ambiguous, eg, 2k can refer to both 2560x1440 (16:9) and 2560x1080 (21:9).
2160p doesn't specify the horizontal pixel count so both 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 counts. also, nobody refers to 2k, 1080p and 1440p is common term, but really with all the custom resolution we might as well use the full pixel count of H x V.

Has anyone been able to find a Shoppers in Toronto that has a PS4 Pro on sale? Doesn't seem like they carry them.

Ah, I have no 4K TV. And no plans to buy one. Pro would be 100% unnecessary then?

I wouldn't say it's 100% unnecessary since super-sampling provides a better image(basically it's like enabling ant-aliasing to reduce jagged lines) and some games run at a higher FPS(eg God of War) but it's a pretty steep price to pay unless you're unhappy with your current ps4.

Just want to give thanks to the OP. Traded my slim 500 gb yesterday for the GoW bundle.

I don’t have a 4K TV yet but to see GoW running in performance mode was great.

I think a lot of people went for that God of War bundle on this deal, well I guess it was the best deal. I looked at the in stock map when this started and there were still quite a few green icons between London and Toronto areas, now it looks like there are maybe just 3.

Wasn't able to get the GoW edition as all sold out everywhere according to stock checker and the dozen stores I called. They had a Destiny 2 bundle but I just got a plain white CUH-7115B because i read it's quieter than the previous CUH-70xx variant. Kinda regretting not getting destiny but it's probably better move in the long run.

Wonder if I could exchange this for another bundle within 30 days if they restock the GoW one. I know they don't accept returns for refund, but I'm not too clear on exchanges.

other than the white and black one, there is still some stock left for the limited edition star wars battlefront 2 bundle...

I guess that's the next best thing after the GoW bundle.

I wouldn't say so - with the PS5 on the horizon in the next 2-3 years maybe, which will certainly be an essential upgrade, to me the ps4 pro doesn't seem worth it even with a 4k TV (unless you've got 250 burning a whole in your pocket, I sure don't). That 250 could also buy alot of games, rather than a moderately better machine that plays all the same games as the machine you already have.

Edit: I'm not criticizing those of you that thought it was worth it. I hope you enjoy it. For those like me on a limited budget for games, it seems better spent on actual software.

Yeah, i got a ps4 1tb slim on black friday for $225 at walmart with the nhl 18. I thought about doing this trade as I have a 4K tv but i think I will just keep the $250 and save it for a ps5 in 2-3 years. As you said, all games have to work on all systems. I also have an Xbox One S and do my online gaming with this system. So I really only use Sony for their exclusives, which still look great on a Slim.
