Xbox One Vs. PS4 - Thoughts/Opinions?

Just thought it'd be an interesting discussion to see what everyone's thoughts are on the two consoles as we start moving to the next generation. I spent too much money on these consoles :(
I own both, as well as a Switch and PC, and I'm genuinely disappointed with my Xbox One S. What makes it harder for me is that the Xbox One's platform is the best. The OS is much nicer than the PS4's, it does more in terms of streaming and media, Xbox Live is still a better service and I think Xbox Game Pass is pretty good value. Not to mention the Xbox controller is amazing (I even use it for some PC gaming).
The games for the Xbox were a disappointment, though. I still can't really come up with any games which would actually make me go out and buy an Xbox. Halo 5 and Gears 4 are both alright, but not really amazing in my opinion. Most of the latest Xbox releases are disappointing, e.g. Sea of Thieves is such a let down after the massive hype. Funnily enough, the Forza series is probably the most compelling reason to buy an Xbox for me.
On the other hand, God of War, Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us (Remastered, but also the upcoming one) were all enough for me to buy the PS4. They are genuinely system sellers for me.
I bought the Xbox first but ended up regretting it. I have too many cross-platform games that would cost me too much to try and migrate over to PS4, but if I could do it all again, I'd just get a PS4 and those cross-platform titles on PS4 and Forza on my PC. The Xbox added nothing unique IMO.
Anyone have any thoughts? :)
