Based on ratings published by trusted online review sites as well as information from Microsoft Xbox One X's website, Microsoft Xbox One X performs average to better than average in terms of display performance compared to other video game console services.

Based on a review posted on pcmag.com, Microsoft Xbox One X was rated as fairly average for display performance relative to competing video game console services. Check out the entire review here. From this review:

The Xbox One X shares the same high-end media playback features as the One S, including Ultra HD Blu-ray support and high dynamic range (HDR) compatibility. You can watch 4K movies and shows either streamed through services like Amazon Video and Netflix (and Microsoft's own Movies & TV Store), or on physical Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. I watched Jessica Jones on Netflix and the BBC's Planet Earth II on Ultra HD Blu-ray on the Xbox One X, and both played back in crisp, vivid 4K HDR.

Based on a review posted on systoolsgroup.com, Microsoft Xbox One X was rated as fairly average for display performance relative to competing video game console services. Check out the entire review here. From this review:

Microsoft Xbox One X is fully equipped to facilitate the requirements of 4K gaming. Besides, it can play 4K Blu-rays disks. In both cases, we have experienced impeccable quality. In naked eyes, most users may not see the difference between 1080p and 4K video. However, the scenario changes when it comes to 4K gaming. When a game is played on 4K HDR television, user will get a view with never-seen-before details. The games can be played in Performance mode also, which gives a smooth feeling of playing the game on a gaming computer.

Based on a review posted on stuff.tv, Microsoft Xbox One X was rated as fairly average for display performance relative to competing video game console services. Check out the entire review here. Specifically, this reviewer pointed out the following:

Aside from being a ridiculously buff games machine, the One X is also a home cinema geek’s dream thanks to its Ultra HD Blu-ray drive and support for 4K streaming across Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Oh, and it supports Dolby Atmos for truly immersive surround sound, too.

Best Network Features – Tie

Based on reviews posted on popular review sites as well as from Sony Playstation 4 Pro's website, Sony Playstation 4 Pro performs very well in terms of network features relative to other video game console stores.

One reviewer on digitaltrends.com said Sony Playstation 4 Pro performs well on network features relative to its peers. You can read the full review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

PlayStation Now, mentioned above, allows gamers to stream a litany of PS3 titles from their PS4. It’s a cool service, though you’ll need a really good internet connection if you want the games to play smoothly. One key feature does tip the scales into PlayStation’s favor, though — free games. Subscribers to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold both earn free games monthly, but the PlayStation selection has proven better over the years.

Based on a review posted on pcmag.com, Sony Playstation 4 Pro was rated as fairly average for network features relative to competing video game console stores. Check out the entire review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

Unfortunately, PSN on the PlayStation 4 needs the subscription to play online, with the exception of free-to-play games. It puts the PS4's online requirements closer to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One's requirements (both of which need the premium Xbox Live Gold service to play online).

Best Exclusive Game Library – Winner: Sony Playstation 4 Pro
5.0 stars

Based on reviews posted on popular review sites as well as from Sony Playstation 4 Pro's website, Sony Playstation 4 Pro performs very well in terms of exclusive game library relative to other video game console stores.

The review site toptenreviews.com gives Sony Playstation 4 Pro excellent ratings for exclusive game library in a review posted on its website. From this review:

Where the PS4 Pro shines against its competition is in its exclusive games library, which blows Microsoft’s efforts out of the water both in terms of quality and quantity. Blockbuster hits like Spider-Man and Bloodborne lead the charge, but there’s a host of diverse titles across all genres.

Based on one review posted on techradar.com, it appears that Microsoft Xbox One X received poor ratings for exclusive game library. See the full review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

But before you break out the charts, tell us about the lack of exclusives or inundate us with emails about how PS4 Pro is just as good as a console (we agree, it is), we have to first face facts: Under its hood, the Xbox One X packs an eight-core CPU, clocked at 2.3GHz, alongside 12GB of GDDR5 RAM. It also features a GPU clocked at 1172MHz, which gives you a huge 6 teraflops of graphical computing power.

The review site toptenreviews.com gives Microsoft Xbox One X excellent ratings for exclusive game library in a review posted on its website. From this review:

What it lacks in exclusive titles, the Xbox One X makes up for with its gaming subscription service, Xbox Game Pass. For a monthly subscription fee of $9.99, Xbox Game Pass offers you access to a library of over 100 games including all Microsoft’s first-party releases. This lineup of games is constantly updated, with new games added to the service monthly.

Best User-friendly Products – Winner: Sony Playstation 4 Pro
5.0 stars

Based on reviews posted on popular review sites as well as from Sony Playstation 4 Pro's website, Sony Playstation 4 Pro performs very well in terms of user-friendly products relative to other video game console stores.

The review site tomsguide.com gives Sony Playstation 4 Pro excellent ratings for user-friendly products in a review posted on its website. Specifically, this reviewer pointed out the following:

The PlayStation 4’s menus are dead-simple to navigate. Most of it is moving side to side or up and down. The Xbox One’s mash-up of Windows 10 and the year-old Blade menu is a mess, with sidebars popping out every which way.

The review site consumerreports.org gives Sony Playstation 4 Pro excellent ratings for user-friendly products in a review posted on its website. From this review:

Best Multiplayer Cost – Winner: Sony Playstation 4 Pro
4.0 stars

Based on reviews posted on popular review sites as well as from Sony Playstation 4 Pro's website, Sony Playstation 4 Pro performs very well in terms of multiplayer cost relative to other video game console stores.

Based on a review posted on expertreviews.co.uk, Sony Playstation 4 Pro was rated as fairly average for multiplayer cost relative to competing video game console stores. Check out the entire review here. From this review:

The PS4 Pro brings improvements, but they're fairly minimal in the grand scheme of things. A few visual improvements here and there do not justify a £350 upgrade for PS4 owners, or a £100 premium over the PS4 Slim for new buyers. Sony has long-since confirmed there will be no PS4 Pro exclusive titles, so you don’t need to worry about missing out on any particular games, either. I'm certainly not tempted to pay an extra £350 for the privilege.

The review site techadvisor.co.uk gives Sony Playstation 4 Pro excellent ratings for multiplayer cost in a review posted on its website. From this review:

Games aren’t the only feature of the PS4 Pro to get some 4K love, as apps like Netflix and YouTube also offer 4K playback ADVERTISEMENT – although Netflix requires a more expensive subscription to access its 4K content. But what if you have a bunch of Blu-Ray UHDs you want to watch? Unfortunately, you’re out of luck – unlike Microsoft’s Xbox One S and One X, Sony’s high-end console doesn’t feature a Blu-Ray UHD player.

Yes, you do need to purchase Xbox Live to play online multiplayer games. 

You can purchase an XBox Live Subscription for 59.99 for 12 months, $24.99 for three months, and $9.99 for one month. That price point is the same as it costs for Playstation Plus. You can get a Nintendo Switch Online subscription for $3.99 for a month, $7.99 for three months, $19.99 for a year, and family plans that costs $34.99. 

The cost is a bit pricey, but it does come with some perks as you get free game downloads every month and sometimes they are some great games. The quality of playing on-line is good and overall it's a solid service.

Best Controller Performance – Winner: Sony Playstation 4 Pro
5.0 stars

The Dual Shock 4 is a great controller for the most part. It feels great in my hands and has a solid build and durability. The triggers and the buttons feel very responsive. If you want to use the controller wirelessly, the range is very solid, but you can also switch to using it directly connected to your console and that transition is seamless. However, I have had issues with the controller in the past as the buttons stop working or the analog sticks are not reacting correctly to your movements. Overall, the Dual Shock 4 is a solid controller that has its issues with durability if you are a heavy user of it.

The review site techradar.com gives Microsoft Xbox One X excellent ratings for controller performance in a review posted on its website. Here's a brief quote from this review:

Controller-wise the new machine is packing a new darker gamepad which, for all intents and purposes, is exactly the same mechanically as the one that currently ships with the Xbox One S. You can't fix what isn't broken, apparently. If controllers are a bit too imprecise for your liking, Xbox One X will support keyboard and mouse controls sometime in the near future. It's not the first console to do so (that award goes to the Dreamcast), but the feature will be welcomed by gamers who prefer this more accurate and responsive control scheme.

Based on a review posted on toptenreviews.com, Microsoft Xbox One X was rated as fairly average for controller performance relative to competing video game console stores. Check out the entire review here. Specifically, this reviewer pointed out the following:

The latest revision of the Xbox One controller has also seen some improvements. The controller is still wireless and battery powered, requiring two AA batteries. The controller can also be connected to the console via a micro USB cable. The improvements have come in the form of alterations to the shoulder bumpers, which used to operate on an awkward hinge that made them difficult to press down. The newer revision of the controller also features an audio port, allowing you to connect a headset directly into the controller.

You can also use PlayStation App to navigate PlayStation 4, which comes in handy when gaming or simply firing up a Blu-ray flick. Additionally, PlayStation app users can input text into dialog boxes such as username and password areas. Using my phone to input text was far, far more intuitive than hunting and clicking using the PlayStation 4 controller and onscreen keyboard.

One reviewer on engadget.com said Sony Playstation 4 Pro performs well on companion app relative to its peers. You can read the full review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

Sony has released an overhauled PlayStation App for Android and iOS that not only drags the look into the modern era, but borrows more than a few cues from social networking apps. It's dominated by a Facebook-style "what's new" feed that puts your friends' PS4 activity front and center, and clearly does much more to encourage comments and sharing. Even profiles have a more social look, and you get quicker access to your friends list and notifications.

If you have younger members in your household and don't want them to get their hands on R-rated movies or M-rated games, you'll probably want to set up your PS4's parental controls. All you need are a few minutes and a hard-to-guess passcode in mind. Whether you have a regular PS4 or the 4K-capable PS4 Pro, you can follow the exact same steps to protect your kids from adult content.

One reviewer on kotaku.com said Sony Playstation 4 Pro performs well on age-restriction access relative to its peers. You can read the full review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

The PS4’s parental controls have recently been improved, which is good, because they left a lot to be desired. To use parental controls on a PS4, you have to set up your child’s account as a sub-account (now called a family member account) on your own PSN.

These tools seem largely iterative — they’re built on well-tested ideas and strategies, but plug into enough devices, apps, and gaming services to make them worthwhile in a way that wouldn’t be possible without Microsoft’s hold over your devices — but they do represent a much more powerful and intuitive way to keep track of, and hopefully control, what your children play, watch, and read online.

The Xbox One’s October 2019 update gives parents much more granular control over how long their kids can use different apps and games.
