well considering the one X is newer than the pro. it would make sense that microsoft have been working on next gen for shorter than Sony. now that isn't bullet proof logic but you'd think. 

Why would the Xbox One X release date have any affect on the release date of Microsoft's next console?
It's not like Sony and Microsoft are building the chips that go into these machines.

anyway. we do know Sony is  deep into working on the PS5. multiple devs mentioning working on next gen games in Sony 1st party studios.  do you think we will see both consoles next to each other like last gen?

Obviously. And not because of what Developers or Sony have mentioned.
We know because consoles typically spend years being designed, tested, iterated upon, improved and so on, it's common sense... Just like water is wet.

I don't think microsoft can afford to let Sony release significantly earlier.

Really depends how the Playstation 5 resonates with consumers.

Microsoft won't be releasing an XB2. They will claim that XB1X was their next gen console, while slowly retreating from the console market. Why?

Yeah. You don't get to speak for Microsoft without evidence.

1. After 4K 30 FPS there's not much you can do as far as graphics go without breaking the bank.

False. Clearly you haven't been paying attention to what is happening on the PC are you?

Playing Witcher 3 in 4K takes a $1000 PC for 30 FPS. Playing Witcher 3 in 4K at 60 FPS takes well over $3000. A few years won't change this fact enough to make a $500 console that can play games at 4K 60 FPS feasible. Graphics won't surpass Witcher 3 on ultra setting, because that level of detail is too labor intensive for most studios. This is why only CDPR, and Sony have been able to push the envelope this gen. Only they have the money and talent to get over the labor hump.

Witcher 3 wasn't built from the ground up to take full advantage of next-gen capabilities.

4. Sony is crushing them this gen, and it's blatantly obvious that MS cannot compete with them.

Microsoft can compete just fine. They simply screwed up this generation.

Sony will dominate MS again and it will be even more one sided than this generation.

This is where I think MS is headed too.  They're already trying to prep customers with the "generations are dead" propaganda.

Are you sure it's Microsoft that has been spreading that "Propaganda" or was it just a singular comment that someone made at Xbox and the gaming community has decided to take it and run with it?

Even at best MS (360) had a hard time beating playstation (PS3) in its worst gen. Ps3 arguably sold more with one year less on the market.. so when did sony fail?? and when did MS won?? IMO Playstation has been a force to reckon with, since past 4 gen.. its just that blunder of PS3 launch and a year early launch made Xbox competitive against PS3. Playstation is such a strong brand that it survived those initial  mess up, but in the similar scenario xbox one struggled to even match PS4. 

To be fair... If Microsoft didn't have the PR disaster that was the RROD, last generation may have played out differently.

The Xbox One X just came out like at the end of 2017.... you think that within 2years of its launch, there will be a replacement for the Xbox One X?

To be honest. They could release the next gen Xbox tomorrow. I would be keen. The Xbox One X shouldn't have any influence on when the next Xbox comes anyway.
