So far it looks like the leaked specs are staying (more than double GPU power, boosted CPU). Both cool and disappointing, but let's see when this thing is releasing.

So this thing doesn't do true 4K rather a smaller res(most likely 1440p) upscaled with post processing.

The Pro name is kind of odd considering PlayStation was originally a pun on workstation.

Okay. It's a shite name. It's the technical specs I'm interested in.

Will it boost VR games.

Name is fine. I need to know the price and whether or not Bloodborne and Witcher 3 will run better on it.

Looks like my guess of Pro was for the wrong console. Microsoft won't use it for Scorpio now.
