One X 2 months ago or something.

Gotta say, in some aspects I like it a lot more than the PS4. The BC is fucking amazing especially the games that got One X enhanced like Oblivion or Fallout 3. They look pretty nice.

I am very torn about the UI. On the one hand I like it but on the other hand I think it's wasting too much space and a few too many adverts for things that I don't care about. (As if I care that Shroud is on Mixer)

What I absolutely hate on this system is the capture function. Sony's share button is a lot less awkward to use than the function M$ came up with. On the upside, if posting a video on Twitter, the Xbone doesn't add a fucking store link to the tweet.

Love the passthrough function/OneGuide.

Best thing though? It's far more quiet when playing HDR/4K games than my PS4 where the fan goes into a fucking frenzy which makes playing most Pro / Pro updated games a terrible experience.

I was tempted to get an X for a while, but ultimately opted against it because there weren't enough XB1 games I cared about to justify it(and the ones I did care about were on PC as well). The BC does seem amazing though, I'd like to have my 360/Xbob library without needing to navigate the awful UI the 360 ended with.

I know what you mean, there really aren't a lot of good exclusives on that system, MS really dropped the ball here. The 360 games that do work, run pretty well. I think they look decent on a 1080p TV but they look like ass on a 4K TV unless they received an X update. It was nice to replay some 360 games.

The main benefit for me is that I can play stuff like Witcher 3 or Resident Evil 2 without having a massive jet engine take off in my living room. My PS4 Pro goes totally bonkers as soon as I play a pro enhanced game on it.
