The s has no disc drive. Which really isn't a big deal, but I use the Xbox for 4k blurays

I haven't read crap and have only owned the Switch since my last system (PS2) and assumed the BBBox was superior in other ways that I would probably care about at some point (7 year old kid lives at my house).

I absolutely do but I thought someone said it was coming to the XBox with this one? We have RBI baseball for the switch and it sucks hard and high inside heat.

NOT TRUE 4k, the S uses upscaling to get to 1440p. The BBBox has true 4k and can support up to 8k eventually

There will never be a game that runs at 8k on the BBBox, and that is ok.

My soon-to-be 13 year old is very serious about this stuff, and will likely have his heart set on the X for Christmas.  I might just ask for the S if there isn't a clear difference in the games that it can push.  I don't care about the hard drive size, because I almost never have need of more than 2 games on my machine at any given time (usually just 1 at a time).

The Show 21 is supposed to be on XBox as well... it complicates my decision a bit, but I'll probably stick with PS in case The Show sucks on Xbox at first

all games will run on s/x/pc
the difference will be in frame rate and resolution
for as hardcore of a gamer that you are, there's no reason for you not to get the x

Most nights I put on music and play a couple games of Contra to see how fast I can beat it. I’ve been trying to break 17 minutes, but can’t get there.

What music do you play

Lately it’s been Pink Floyd, Say Anything, Piebald or Pinback. If it was a stressful day it might be Message To Bears. I’m pretty basic, stuck in college to mid-20s when it comes to music.
