If i didnt have them already and had to make a choice, i would get a second hand PS4 and a Switch over an Xbox One X.
But since I do already have them (PS4 Pro + Switch), I'd rather buy games for the PS4 and Switch over an Xbox One X.
The sad reality is that the Xbox One X is going to be the first console/console upgrade since the Snes that I did not buy on day one, there just isn't a pull for me at all with the whole "it's 4k guys" thing, and the fact that all of the consoles games I can buy for PC, for less just makes it seem like an entirely pointless purchase, so I've not preordered one, and won't be picking one up any time soon, or in the foreseeable future.
If my launch console ever dies (which is unlikely since it's only ever really used to play videos off of the NAS server), i *might* just replace it with an Xbox One X depending on the pricing at that entirely arbitrary point, but only if an Xbox One S isn't available new at that time too.
The depressing thing about this is that I can probably see myself treating the next Xbox console release in the same way, and skipping it entirely and sticking with PlayStation and Nintendo.
Microsoft have slowly diluted the Xbox brand to a point where it's tasteless and unappetizing, where as it's competition just keep on perfecting their formula and making their offerings tastier with each passing year.
