Plot twist! Microsoft makes a 399 console and gets $100 price advantage whit a less powerful console. The $399 Xbox still gets beaten by ps5, but they manage to create a great userbase ( 70~80M?) and over 40M gamers are onboard whit gamepass for "cheap budget" gaming. All clains of "mostpowerfullconsole" are things from the past, xbox is the new house of "budget gaming" whit gamepass and clains of "over4AAAgamesayearatlauch" takes place.
And if anyone points out that Nextbox isn't significantly more powerful than X1X Microsoft will reply: "Xbox One X? Never heard. Are you a madman? Xbox One X .. pfuh.. what a silly name. There is no such thing."
