I would agree if Scarlett were releasing this year.  Since it's releasing next year, Microsoft is mostly out of the console business until late 2020.  Sony kind of made the same mistake though.  PS4 sales are plummeting.  

This is why I originally thought both Microsoft and Sony would release their next consoles this year.  That is the smartest strategy.  Instead they are just letting Switch dominate the marketplace for all of 2019 and 2020.

The PS4 has been doing just fine - keeping pace worldwide with the Switch in it's 6th year.  I think people are severely underestimating the power of a permanent PS4 price drop - which I think is coming real soon just in time for the holidays.  Look at what the PS4 just did on Prime Day - all models lit up the Amazon charts.  When the PS4 was $199 the previous 2 Black Fridays - Sony couldn't ship enough to keep up with demand.  If they stock up this holiday season, have a decent bundle (God of War, Spider-Man, Horizon: Zero Dawn combos) - along with an extended $199 price point - it will sell boatloads in Q4 all the way through to PS5 release.

Sony already profited what they could, they should really give it a price cut at least until September end.

I know they needed these kind of profits this gen, but it's time to move on, PS5 is coming in just a bit more than 1 year, let the PS4 userbase increase as much as possible before it.
