Switch or PS4 (regular, not Pro).

Basically Sony left it up to each developer/publisher how they want to support the more powerful hardware in the Pro. And the extra hardware in the Pro is not powerful enough to real native 4K at locked 30fps or 60fps for the most demanding graphics titles that do support 4k so compromises have to be made in various ways (less resolution upscaled or checkerboarding, FPS not locked, etc.). And 1080p users don't necessarily benefit from a better experience either. So if you care about this sort of thing you have to research each game you are thinking about getting to see whether or not it supports 4k or runs better at 1080p and what that experience might be like.

Digital Foundry is the best source I found for a technical examination of how games run on the PS4 Pro but they only examine a small subset of them:

I would've bought a PS4 for the games, but I prefer the MS controller. Yes, I'm aware there are ways around that.

Still, apart from PS exclusives (which are enough to warrant buying the PS4 imo), the xbone is a solid machine that does what a console needs to do. Xbone S if you go that way.

I like my PS4 well enough but haven't compared vs the Xbone.

No one is buying Xboxen, from what I gather.
