They were a year late and $100 more expensive with the purpose just to have the more powerful system this generation. (interview with Phil Spencer confirming 2016 scorpio)

It's not likely they'd spend extra cash in R&D and sacrifice a year of sales for the lolz.

I expect the same mindset next generation. If I had to put money on a company having the more powerful system, it would be MS.

I'm still not convinced either way though. Simply too early to call.

Are you saying they might launch later just to make sure they have best specs and not increase any cost?

---> No. I'm saying why would they bother with the extra year of R&D costs plus potential loss of sales only to make the same mistake next generation? It makes absolutely no sense.  Xbox has been here for 3 generations now. Each one they've had the superior console. At best, the ps3 and 360 were a tie. Ps3 was theoretically more powerful but 3rd party games ran worse most of the generation. One X and og xbox are quite above their respective PlayStation comrades.  Xbox having the weaker hardware is the exception, not the rule.
