Hey everyone,

First off want to say that I used to have a switch i sold it today because it wasnt cutting it for me i used it primary docked as a console and games like doom ran Just terrible on it,
So i figured since im using this like a console why not sell it and get a real console..
So i did that and now im deciding if i should pick up an Xbox one X?
I still have to wait 2 weeks since i only got 400€ for my switch with games and controller and Xbox one X is 488€ But thats alright i can wait..
But the problem is i keep hearing very bad stories about the X like the consoles are dying in few days and the thermal paste on it comes dry on multiple consoles that Will lead to overheating with time...
Are these issues fixed is it safe to get one?
Or should i go for the PS4 pro?

Oh also i dont really care for exclussives Nor Sony and Microsoft have anything that interest me atm.. Its mostly for third party since the games i like are mostly third party like Doom,wolfenstein 2, fallout, overwatch,Cod, Skyrim etc..

Since im a doom fan i just wanna experience it the real way and Nintendo wasnt cutting it

If you really want one then just do it. I see you live in Europe so you have 2 years of warranty atleast minimum so if it breaks down you can get a new one. Microsoft has a program that they give you another console in the meantime while they fix your old one if you give them like 300-400 euro in loan wich you get back if you return the other console to them that you got from them.

If you were REALLY into multiplayer FPS games then go for Xbox One X. (Or if you don't have a 4K TV, Xbox One S is good and cheap.) I can say the performance is way beyond PS4 Pro IF the game utilized the hardware and provide 4K texture.

Otherwise, I think PS4 Pro is a better option as it has more games and 3rd-party supports. (Have almost every AAA titles Xbox has except those made by Microsoft itself.) Almost all Xbox exclusives were made by Microsoft and not really exclusive because of XPA. You can play them on a Windows 10 PC too. Even Switch has a better library than Xbox One. (Don't know, maybe because I'm not a FPS guy and GoW 4 can't have me playing for 200+ hours like BotW, SMO, XB2...etc.)

Just pick one that suits you. I was too lazy to decide so I just buy all of them.
