If you don't care about Sony and Nintendo exclusives then there is no reason to buy a console if money isn't an issue.
The Xbox One X makes a great multimedia device(movies and games) if you have a home theater setup at home especially with features like a 4K HDR blu ray player, Dolby Atmos, DTS-X, Dolby Vision HDR, Free Sync, Auto Low Latency Mode and Voice control via Alexa. It can access 600+ back compatible games from previous gens, many of which have been enhanced to 4K resolution, and are console exclusives that you cannot access on PC. All these features are not available on Sony or Nintendo.
You can also use your Xbox One X like a steam link by accessing your PC games in another room in the house via wifi in resolutions up to 4K on your console.
Now that it supports mouse and keyboard support it basically becomes a mid range gaming PC + steam link + 4K HDR blu ray device + home theater enhancer. Many reasons to get it aside from gaming and therefore makes a very good supplement to a gaming PC which is still the best platform for gaming. Sony and Nintendo is just good for playing their few exclusives(and you can access many of those on PC via PSNow, Epic, and emulators) while their 3rd party multi-platform games are generally inferior to the versions found on the Xbox One X.
I've been pc/nintendo for a while now.
Well you can't get Sony games on PC either, its seems the only console manufacturer that actually puts out most of their games on PC is Microsoft.

That is not true. Except for the latest games, many of Sony's older exclusives(including some from this gen) are available on PSNow which you can access on PC or via emulators. The Quantic games exclusives including Detroit Become Human are also about to be offered on the Epic website on PC. Eventually all the newer exclusives will also be made available on PSNow on PC.
MS also owns the Windows OS platform on PC so basically they are offering their games on their own platform on PC and not just on Xbox One. They have been publishing PC games(MS Flight Simulator) long before even the Windows OS existed.
I'll probably get a PS5 eventually, but not day one like I did with the PS4.
Intel 6700k, GTX 1080 8gig, 16 gigs of 3200mb of RAM.
Game is a very poor console port and From Software needs to learn that 60FPS is not OK in 2019.

Yeah Sony will offer their games on PC after they feel those specific games are no longer driving console sales which is pretty smart. I’m sure by the time PS5 comes out and they no longer care about selling PS4s they will put all the PS4 exclusives on PSNow. If you don’t mind waiting 4-5 years to play a game then there’s no point in buying consoles...

I have thousands of games on steam. It will take a long time for me to get to the major games in my backlog much less the few games that Sony keeps exclusive. I can wait. There are plenty of multi-platforms(majority of games) to keep me busy, including hundreds of PC exclusives(from RTS to grand strategy to MOBA and flight simulator games) that are currently not available on consoles.
Besides with the advent of live streaming, I think that Sony will eventually need to release their exclusives early. Otherwise they eventually will lose out on the billions of non console gamers on mobile, PC, smart phones, tablets, etc. that Google, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon are maneuvering to try gain a market share in.
PS5 100% guaranteed to buy. Can't miss GoWII, HZD2, and Spidey 2.

With the advent of streaming we don’t need gaming PCs anymore either since we will just be able to stream 4k60fps to out toasters anyway. Streaming is exactly what console companies want as they never made big profits from the hardware anyway. Also streaming will affect us PC gamers who enjoy the openness of this platform as streaming will take away any semblance of control from us. No more mods!
