First of all; if you really want the full effect of playing mods you need a gaming pc, if you just want a console that can use external assets you want the Xbox (but I wouldn't waste my money, I would wait for the Scorpio to come out in 2017). That's the only thing about sony is they don't allow external assets, but I still enjoy playing on their systems. The pro upscales to show excellent graphics and picture on my games. It also runs a lot smoother than my ps4 did. I have a whole lot less lag, and what seems like to me a higher frame rate, on games like fallout 4 and elder scrolls games. I don't know for sure about the fps, I don't have anyway to test that, but it definitely runs a lot smoother with more going on at one time. Games like Skyrim Remastered are just stunning by the way, but not assassins creed. The disc runs quieter in the system as well. Its still a very new system, so I'm sure there will be more good things to say about it as the new games of 2017 come out.
