I've seen the comparisons between the Series X and S but the the differences seem to only be noticeable on 4K TVs.  I know about the disc drive and greater storage space, but is there any advantage to the way games will play in 1080p on a Series X than on a Series S?  Would games have graphical or audio improvements on Series X, for instance?

If all I care about is how the games play, am I effectively throwing $200 away if I get a Series X over Series S to use on a 1080p TV?

For which nextgen games have you seen a comparison between Series X and Series S?

Even on a 1080p TV the image quality should be better due to supersampling.

And the Series S storage will limit much faster. So many Series S buyers will also pay $499 eventually (base console + proprietary SSD).

Series S + 1 TB SSD = ~$499 with 50% more storage, but only 1/3 performance, ~2/3 RAM, no disc drive, no option to buy and sell retail games, no "X enhanced" older Xbox games

Series X without expansion = $499 with 33% less storage, but 3x performance, 1.6x RAM, a UHD disc drive for movies and games, option to buy and sell retail games, best versions of BC games

Series X seems to be the much better deal IMHO.
