I'd say 2019 at the earliest. Doesn't MS profit with the XOne anyway?

I Think that they are losing a lot with Hardware, they are nearly giving the consoles for free, and Because Xone, is shipping Multiple times less than Playstation 4, so is more expensive to produce.

Not going to happen. A new Xbox in the middle of PS4's reign could fare even worse than X1 (same poor sales outside of US, but weaker sales in US due to cheap, game-filled and popular PS4) and truly nail the brand's coffin. They have to bear with this gen, "tough it out" until the next one.

2017 seems too early but 2018 wouldn't be in the middle of the PS4's reign. No more then 2005 was for the PS2. It would do Microsoft no favours to wait to launch alongside the the PS5. Also people seem to be expecting very typical console generations going forward and I think thats unlikely, especially from Microsoft and their new cross play PC/Xbox initiative.

Xbox will eventually be a cross platform service where hardware is almost irrelevant. As will all gaming eventually.

Yup!

If they did it will bomb so hard it's not even funny. People who buy consoles don't want to spend $400 on a new console so soon. if they wanted frequent hardware updates they'd game on pc.

 5 years is not frequent

The Xbox was replaced 4 years after it was out, the PS2 6 years. Beyond that I'm pretty sure sony and Microsoft next systems will see much of their software shared with X1/PS4 for the first few years. An extention of what we saw during 2014. 

Consoles will become increasingly like PC, its inevitable. Whats important is that consumers buy a box they can plug into their TV and don't have to worry about specs.

PS2 launched in 2000, the PS3 in 2006/2007... so 6 to 6.7 years (depending on the region), not 5 years.

Whoops, that was gamecube that was 5 years. 



2018 is possible but unlikely. Maybe 2019 just to beat Sony at a console launch.
