EDIT: If I didn't need (want) to buy a PS4 this month I'd probably be buying one right now for my office PC... that bad boy is still rocking a GTX460.
My thoughts, too, actually.

You're going to enjoy the PS4 if you stick to the exclusives (Horizon, etc,), unless that will be your only gaming console.

I've had a PS4 so I already have Bloodborne and Destiny but I sold it before the Pro was announced to maximize what I could get for it and put the money towards my VR setup. I figured I'd want a Pro at some point anyway and I had 8 or so months before the next games I wanted were coming out but it turns out the benefits aren't really worth an extra $200 for the Pro so I'll probably just find a used PS4 for cheap so I can play Zero Dawn because I NEED to play Zero Dawn.

My PC is my primary platform so I'm pretty much just buying it for Zero Dawn, Dad Of War and the Uncharted and Last of Us expansions... Did I much I really want to play Zero Dawn?

I posted in the Horizon thread that I really had no interest in the game at all, and I pre-ordered it based on the early reviews. I was NOT disappointed.

That 480 is a great deal, wow!

All this talk of graphics cards is almost making me want to upgrade my 970. This thread is dangerous.
