Have there been any issues with PS4 Slim such as overheating, or dying within a couple of years etc?

I had a PS2 slim and it's still going strong although recently had to change its laser lens. If the difference is not big then I would definitely go for slim again for $200 less, if there are not major issues, especially when PS5 is coming out.
But what you mentioned about Pro is definitely appealing.
Reliability is something hard to predict, buddy. Sometimes it's just down to plain ol' luck.

But i think at this stage in the playstation lifecycle, their manufacturing process is matured, so most serious quality issues should have been ironed out already.

Depends on the type of gamer you are. If the PS5 does come out according to the timeline you are predicting, would you buy it at launch when the game library is still weak? If so, then the cheap ps4 slim now + expensive launch PS5 makes sense.

But if you will wait until the PS5 game library matures, then it makes a lot more sense to spend more now for the ps4 pro and enjoy it all the way.

I bought the slim first hoping to save some money. At that time the pro was still new on the market. Then i saw more and more games get quality pro support. The craving for the ps4 pro just continued to grow, until i buay tahan.

Quick question:

did some research but still cannot decide: PS4 Pro or Slim?

I know Pro has 1TB storage etc. but in terms of performance and lifespan?
Btw, are there any PS4 games in 4K? Thinking about whether I should get a 4K monitor.

Thankss
Put into context to make your decision easier. Would you buy the newest model laptop or a 2/3 year old model?

PS4 pro is like a mid-generation upgrade, with hardware improvements. Even if you don't go with a 4K TV or monitor, it is still worthwhile as games will run smoother. You can read some benchmark tests and judge for yourself. PS4 games are usually locked at 30 fps while PS4 pro can run up to 60 fps, which is a noticeable difference.

There is no Dragon Quest 12 (yet). The current one is DQ11. Japanese and Chinese versions were out Jul and Nov 2017. Now English version is coming Sep 4.

If I remember correctly, changes in Eng ver: has voice acting (JP/CH ver did not have VO, traditionally all the previous numbered games also no VO), has photo mode, has first person view, menus have new art/font style. (The JP/CH vers, if you complete DQ11 campaign, you unlock DQ1 full game for free, though offer ended already. Don't know EN ver will have or not.)

Definitely a must-buy, very fun game. Long game too, probably 70-100 hrs.

The FPS thing I actually did not know about. Thanks. 30 to 60 is a major jump indeed.

The only other thing I wish it had was ability to play 4K Blu ray disc

Don't spread misinformation.

PS4 games can and will run at 60fps on the first-gen PS4 and the PS4 Slim. Games are only locked at 30fps if the developer chooses to do so.

All my games run at 60fps.
