Question which game console to get? XBox One S OR PS4 Pro?


about 6-8 years ago when I built my PC I got Far Cry 2 and played it for hours on end, kinda got addicted to it, to the point where I uninstalled it so I would not spend so much time gaming anymore (it was out of control...LOL)
Have not been gaming much ever since.

I'm kinda starting to feel the itch again, just this time I want to go with a gaming console. I use my PC for writing and recording music and I don't want to mess that PC up with any games.
I also like the idea of having a console in the living room where the bigger TV screen and the sofa is at.

So, I need to decide on either the XBox One S or the PS4 Pro, leaning more towards the latter now as I read it's more powerful and has the better graphics. For now I just want a fun racing game (like Need For Speed), some shooter (like Far Cry or Call Of Duty) and I definitely want Star Wars Battlefield.
I saw an XBox One S 1TG on sale here for 288 Euro, whereas the PS4 Pro sells here for 388 Euro....
But then I keep reading that the PS4 Pro had better gaming graphics....which I may or may not even notice.

What console do you guys use or recommend and why?

Asus P6T Deluxe
Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67 GHz
Corsair 6GB DDR3 1333Mhz XMS3 Triple Channel
Coolermaster HAF 932
Corsair 850W ATX
2x Samsung 1TB SATA II 32Mb HD103UJ
1x Samsung 640GB 16MB 7200rpm
4x LG DVD_CD drives
Sapphire 1GB HD4870 PCI-E
Win 7 home premium 64bit
