1080p60 is all you need for a PS4. Nothing will utilize the higher update rates of a 120 Hz TV unless you're doing stuff with a computer.

I still don't know why 120hz TVs are marketed towards average consumers... Besides the obvious.

Well


120hz are easier on the eyes and cause less judder when displaying 3D content(it seems to be the sweet spot frequency, 60p per eye, or so say some), -which is a useless consumer fad IMO-, 

Apart from that, most tv's over 100hz are BS, they're using a frame interpolation technology from samsung displays also known as CMR, so, unless is a really really good device they're only displaying @ 100hz despite claiming 200, 400, 800. short answer: it's a scam.


Recommendation for OP: get an IPS 60-100hz PC monitor with a response time equal to or under 6ms and enjoy an expanded color reproduction and superior IQ fluidity.

The best website for the gamer that is looking for a TV: http://www.displaylag.com/display-database/

And what Ingram says is the absolute truth. Don't fall for the high hertz fad, only PC monitors have high hertz natively. On TV's they are just a crappy post-process that adds insane lag to games and make movies look weird but in reality they all are only 60hz.

Talking bout response time now that wishing mentioned it, It's worth noting that first gen IPS's have a very high response time (8-14ms) and may not be worth the extra color, sorry I forgot to tell you earlier; anyway it's always a tradeoff with tech when on a budget, you may have different priorities, like a lower response time. Me, I'm fine around 5-7ms, some people might not be ok with that though.

Good luck!
