What do you think
Worried about? I wouldn't go so far as to say this is something that you need. They are features that would make games more enjoyable/playable, and give you a bit of a competitive edge, but you could enjoy them just fine if none of those things are a priority for you.
In terms of the PS5, it's been confirmed by Sony that it will be capable of outputting 4K 120hz and 8k and some unknown hz (probably 60), so it will be a 2.1 device. Which games and how many will be pushing those signals, I don't know, but just giving that information. i fully expect Nvidia to release a 2180 ti or whatever they end up calling it, that has HDMI 2.1 around this time next year also. If you don't game on PC though, then that isn't something that would interest you, though.
2.1 is backwards compatible so you will still be able to play just fine. Like I said, it just depends on how much value you put on playing at the highest refresh rate in 4K, getting the lowest possible input lag, and if you think that VRR is valuable.
