How does an Xbox work as a disc player? I tried my PS4 as a blu-ray player and it was awful. All the social notifications announcing “Kadath has joined Destiny“ were appearing atop the movie! Blech!

Does Microsoft understand movies? Sony doesn’t and I’d never buy their game system for media use.

I believe you can turn those notifications off on the PS4 for when you're watching a movie, but I haven't had the ned myself.

However, the PS4 was not anywhere near as good of a media machine as the PS3 was.

^ Yeah, hugely looking forward to getting mine, here. Dying to play Valhalla and the enhanced Forza Horizon 4 all sexied-up with that next-gen sheen on top. Think I'm gonna wait until next year to pick up Cyberpunk, if the Series X-update is getting delayed until at least 2021, though. Wanna play it in top-notch quality right out of the box.
