Can you list a game that does 120fps on a series S but not on a One X?
Microsoft tried to push this narrative, but I haven't seen it perform above 60FPS in any game ever besides maybe Ori or another very simple 2D game. MCC does 60 FPS and that's not a hard game to run.
I think we all agree the Series X is the way to go, but I can't think of a single thing the Series S does better than the One X besides slightly faster load times. it runs the crappy One S versions of games whereas the One X runs the actual 4K versions. It just has a better GPU, period.
For me the Series S was cool because it's so tiny that it works really well as a travel machine. I can hook it up in my hotel in about 20 seconds and it powers on fast and I am ready to play or stream video. Hotel TVs usually suck anyways so I wasn't ever expecting 4K or 120hz. Just play some CoD Cold War Zombies or stream some netflix etc.
But for home usage I can't really see the upside honestly, even games like RDR1 look a lot better on the One X than Series S.
