i honestly think that the thing holding xbox back is..........

the windows operating system with its legacy garbage. Its like a chic/dude carrying baggage from past dysfunctional relationships. If they get rid of that, make a super sleek windows with fluent design (lots of transparent acrylic affect) and buttery smooth transition animations and low OS footprint (windows core-10x?) microsoft can tell OEMS to make their own Xbox's because OS can be adaptable to the specific form factor. Imagine OEMS like HP, Dell, Asus, Samsung, Lenovo, LG making their own Xbox like console with NVIDIA Gtx 3080ti or RDNA2-3, GDDR6/HBM2 memory, Raytracing and all the other bells and whistles, fast SSD drive without the I/O bottleneck and multiple slots for additional SSD drive. You can literally bring PC master race gaming in video game form factor and OS UI without the bullshit of general purpose use (like photoshop, ms suite, etc).

No more shackles of number of units sold, and still catering to previous gen install base and blah blah blah.

wouldnt that be a dream come true for vfxveteran?

Edit: I think direct x ultimate 12, and other important API upgrades along with Xbox Series X release and D/C of Xbox One and Xbone X might be the stepping stone needed to achieve this.

atleast microsoft got an ecosystem, and sony dont sooooo boooyaaa! sony ponys!!

well thats another problem with MSFT, is that they have to unify everything for their ecosystem, versus Sony dont, thats why PS5 is so heavily customised, so developers can harness its customizations.

always pros and cons to having something and not having something

I feel that the events of 2020 really sour the experience economically of next generation releases. If I were one of th execs for MS or Sony, I'd seriously reconsider delaying until January 2022. I still feel there's life left in the PS4 and XBOX One.
Consoles sell very well during recessions and economic downturns.... particularly now when people are limited from travel. They are spending on home entertainment and improvements instead.

Yeah, that's true. I just look at it from a historical perspective. When the next-next gen starts around 2027 or so, what will they make of all that came of this. Or, will this be the last console generation (a much deeper question)?

Sony and Nintendo will continue doing hardware anyway....
PSNow has been around for a long time and people just want the hardware option.

I bleed blue, green, and black(pc?). Here to watch the melee between the pencil necked 12 year olds. Also, just kidding, I don't bleed anything but red. Fuck these corporations. I will definitely buy them to enjoy some gaming though!
