When anandtech's review started with "anyone looking for a clear recommendation is going to get a nuanced answer here" (paraphrasing) I closed I it. Expensive cards that don't beat nvidia, not interested. When an xbox that compares well with pc 's costs the same as a graphics card, there's no sale in my book.

An xbox doesn't compare well with a PC though. Unless you like low resolutions and framerates.
If you want to game at 2560x1440/144Hz you need something with around the power of these cards at a minimum.
These cards are in the price range that a big section of the market buys at. Add 1 more lower tier covering the €200-350 range and it will be well over 80% of the market that buys discrete cards for gaming.
I'm guessing you have an already powerful Nvidia card so ye it's nothing exciting for you. For poor saps like me still using a 970 though they are exciting cards.

4k in some games for the One X alright,mostly with a settings on par with medium on PC,sometimes lower,sometime higher. Most will still use dynamic scalers with 4k being the top end of that scaler but on average the real resolution will be lower amd they nearly all run at 30fps. I have to laugh how people swallowed that 4k hype for consoles.
As for the One S doing 120hz,pull the other one. Maybe some indie title that could also run on a calculator but id love to see a list of games that can run at 120hz on that console. Half the games on console dont even maintain a solid 30fps.
Your also missing out on the utility a PC has,can do a lot more with one than you can do with a console and your not locked into any particular eco system.
Maybe you place zero value on any of that,and maybe consoles are for you,but just a blanket statement,in the pc building forums no less,saying consoles are better is just silly.
I also beleieve that the consoles we should see end of year next year may be pricier than people expect if the spec leaks are accurate.

Let's not forget the actual cost of the One X now too; these days it costs very similar to build a better performing PC system (eg, Ryzen 2600, RX570, 8GB RAM can be built for about 480 quid).

So based on what I've seen so far, there's no real reason to upgrade from a 1080ti?

The 2080 super could be a decent upgrade when it hits, or at least I'm hoping it is. be nice if amd released a 5800 or 5900 to go for the higher end stuff as well
