Any reason to upgrade to an Xbox One X?
I owned a release model,and upgraded to an S.

 

I play my Xbox One solely on a 1080p 44inch tv, and it barely gets 1/8th the playtime as my PS4 Pro. But at the same time, I wanted the "best" version of the XB1 incase something good comes out. That said I just own and play it for exclusive and the backwards compat (though I still have my XBX and 360 for games not BC)

 

I own over 300 360 games...

But not a 4k TV

 

Someone said the difference between certain games like Gears 4 and AC Origins is night and day even on a 1080p

Get the TV first.  it makes all the difference.  keep in mind though the jump is not as drastic as the jump from video tapes to DVD but it is a significant jump.

Not really interested in a 4K TV until it is the universal standard, which is a few years down the road.
Since not all games run at 4K base, or correctly/fluidly at 4k... if you understand my meaning.

4k That is where the real features are shown.  If your sticking with 1080p Then I would wait.  Some people are graphic experts and can tell with the eye the slightest difference.  Some can't , a while back someone did a side by side test with people not knowing which system is which.   It is all subjective as far as technology advancing to 1 standard imo it is advancing so fast something better is always around the corner. a standard means companies will have to agree and that is hard to get them to do.   The prices dropped so much on tv's recently I say enjoy the moment.

Definitely makes a difference if you have the 4K TV and since it will be THE console for the next few years, might want to jump in when you can

Hi. Confused about PS4 pro and Xbox one s. The Xbox one slim has a blu Ray disc drive, but PS4 pro does have it to play 4k movies? Just purchase some 4K movies and looking for a game console to play it.

For people that have both PS4 pro and Xbox one , which u play more?

I got Xbox 360 games that can play via bc, while PS4 has some exclusive, but o just got a switch. The switch is amazing even if it’s not like this gen console war. I also like the switch due to support of indie games . I know pc will always be the best over consoles, but each serves different purposes. I’m not a fanboy and enjoy what differences offer.

Can anyone explain the popularity of digital codes? Got 4k movies and what’s the best way to sell besides eBay? Heard they iffy about it.

PS 4 Pro does NOT play 4K Blu Rays

 

Get the Xbox One X.  Backwards compatibility (with upscaling) plus plays 4K movies.  If price is an issue, get the Xbox One S.  You still get BC game catalog plus the 4K without the upscaling.

For a console decide what games you like to play. Then go for the console that has those games. If you play online with friends a lot. Then that is the console you want.
