Should I buy a PS4 Pro if I only have a 1080p TV?

I currently have a regular PS4 and a 1080p TV. I have seen a good trade in deal and I am considering purchasing a PS4 Pro. Is there any point in me doing this if I do not have a 4k TV?

If you have the money spare, then yes, absolutely. The PS4 pro is advertised to bring 4k gaming but the reality is far from this. Most games do not support 4k, in fact most of them just give a solid 60fps at 1080p resolution, which isn’t something the standard PS4 system can do. 

So to get the best gaming experience on PlayStation, the PS4 Pro is the way to go becasue you will get much better visuals even if the resolution is locked to 1080p
