This poll is now closed.
So I’ve decided to buy a Xbox one. I have enough money to buy the x and a 250€ 4K Monitor but I’m not quite sure yet. I could also buy the S and start of with more games and maybe a better monitor. I sure love the words 4K and HDR but I also heard that the S can also provide native 4K but I’m not sure what that means. Anyway, I’ve owned a switch before so the next console I buy will probably be better than that one and I sold it because I didn’t like the games on it. I just want the games to be played and have fun with friends (1 of my friends has a Xbox one x, another one is going to buy a S).
I mostly want to play backward compatible games, BFV, COD, PUBG and some other shooters and AC. Now my 2 questions are: which one should I buy? And why? And my other question is: is there really that much of a difference if I buy a 1080p monitor or would the S also run good on a 1440p?

X1S has 4K only for blu rays (movies)
X1X has some games at 4k

Honestly? unless you are a pro you should buy a TV instead of a monitor. A 4K monitor with HDR will be way more expensive than a good TV and probably not as good.
Get the X1S, X is too much money for what it offers and the new consoles are coming soon anyway.

Thanks but I think I’ll still be going for a monitor cause I’m sitting right in front of it

I've got an S. Nothing wrong with it for what I use it for.

But if you can afford an X, get an X.

People say the new consoles are coming out soon but no announcement has been made and obviously no date either. Unless you have a specific reason for getting the S which you don't, hence the topic, I'd buy the X, mostly for faster load times, but also because 4K games on your monitor will look better.
