Xbox One X is going to be silent, have 4K Bluray playback, be the most powerful by a longshot, and have built-in Dolby Atmos support. Also for headphones, you can use any headset with Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos for Headphones via software, vs being tied to specific and crummy Playstation headsets for 3D Audio.

The PS4 Pro now has none of the above benefits. Instantly, its best feature is the controller speaker.

So I am switching my main platform for movies and games back to Xbox and relegating by very loud Pro to exclusives duty.

The only good news for Sony is that it will likely be first to market now with PS5.

Never cared for how surround sound emulation works on headphones, but Dolby Atmos for Headphones is a $15.00 application. Cheap, but still not free.

As for the sound of the PS4 Pro, it may be an issue while watching movies or playing games that are quiet, but for the most part, I do not hear my PS4 Pro. Same with my PC. It is only when I am doing absolutely nothing that I am aware of the fan noise.

The only real lackluster thing is the lack of UHD Blu-ray (I have a dedicated UHD Blu-ray player) and the fact that the Xbox One X is actually a leap in performance, rather than the slight tweak the Pro was. Still sticking with the PS4 Pro as my main platform as there are going to be no Xbox One exclusives that will also not be coming to PC.

I just bought the Plantronics RIG 800LX which includes the $15 Dolby Atmos for Headphones code for free. And it supports Windows Sonic, fully wireless, has great reviews and only $150.

The PS4 Pro is jet engine loud with demanding 4K games.

I was hoping that there would be a price drop with the Xbox One X coming out. Guess not.

I think it will stay a niche console. Not needed, for people who want the most powerful console just because. I bought mine on a whim, it nice to just to have the non pleb console, as it were. Once you get over the hate which i guess it could deserve, its kind of a special console. Its just nice to own.
