Microsoft seems to be much better equipped this gen.
-They have the power advantage that everyone made such a big deal about last gen.
-They have a price advantage with the Series S
-Game Pass with EA is a hell of a value
-They've pretty much made Xbox portable with the streaming service
-The studios they've purchased should start paying off any day now...🙄
-They have the payment plan option so existing subscribers can get an S or even an X pretty painlessly--and the streaming app should create a wealth of new subscribers.
On paper, they're in a good place and poised to do but business.
Sony has the brand power, loyalty, and consumer trust. It's going to be an interesting battle, this time opposed to the 8th gen where PS4 held every advantage before the consoles even launched.

I definitely think we'll have a closer generation in terms of sales, Microsoft have played it smart, while Sony have played it safe... either way I'm excited to see how both perform, and this will be the first gen where I'm most likely gonna' have both consoles within a year of release (Looking at a Series S, price is decent and Game Pass is great!)
Exciting times ahead my dude, exciting times indeed!
