If OLED's faster pixel response time causes motion to be more juddery because it's not smearing pixels between frames as LCD does, then the A1E will be affected as well, unless interpolation is on, and if it is, you aren't going to want to game like that. For myself, 30 fps is already not smooth motion, and as another poster pointed out, consoles have struggled to even deliver a steady 30 frames per second, so now you're including frame time spikes into how a game "looks" to your eye.
I already posted my rationale, but my reasons for going with the LG were, by importance, 1) price 2) the OS 3) Sony's bad stand design 4) the minimal difference in performance. I could have had the A1E if I had wanted it, but I decided to pass. For me, since I'm feeding only 4K sources to my OLED, the better upscaling (a concrete improvement!) just wasn't worth a $1500 "tax", and, comparing 4K content, there just wasn't enough difference between Sony's processing and LG's to justify the extra expenditure. It looks like ABL is less aggressive on the LG 2017's compared to the Sony, the display may be a little bit brighter, and the option is there for much lower lag 1080p from a PC or Nintendo Switch, if I decided to get one... 1080p looks fine on the B7, it's sub-1080p scaling that's so-so.
You can't go wrong with either, anyway.
