After using it for a bit and playing halo 5 and stuff, it just feels a bit redundant. I'd definitely recommend this console to those who already have an Xbox one but I already have a ps4, switch, and a PC. I've already started to neglect it and it hasn't even been 2 weeks.
Its a pretty cool console though and its execution was on point.
The general UI is passable. The Xbox Store is terrible though with it often not registering button presses and it lagging 2-3 seconds before it displays something. I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I'm kind of interested in getting into Halo 5's multiplayer, but aside from that, Cuphead, Forza Horizon 3, Forza 7, and Gears I can play on PC. I have a Ryzen 1600 + GTX1070. I maxed Gears of War 4 out at 4k, but also enabled the dynamic resolution to maintain 60fps. I played it for a little bit and then switched over to the Xbox One X to play the same scene. They look pretty close, but I can get 60fps at a much higher resolution on PC. Only thing missing on the PC is the HDR. I like the console. It's very sleek and quiet and can pretty much a be a one stop shop for my media streaming and 4k UHD discs, but as a games machine I feel like it's pretty much just going to sit there while I go through my PC and PS4 backlog.
