MS already said all their content will be cross gen for a period so there really shouldn't be an expectation of exclusives.
Furthermore, the ports optimized for Series S/X should be overall more polished, better performing, and it will also vastly improve a good number of last gen games as well.
Pre-orders appear to be going well so delaying the platform until they gets some exclusives, something MS isn't focused on at the moment, is simply moronic. Its better to have their new console on the marketing competing and growing its userbase than a pointless delay. The best selling games in 2013 and 2014 were cross gen, it will probably be much the same for 2020 and 2021.
Everything you say is accurate, but its still disappointing there isn't something flashy and new. I felt burned by the XOne generations lack of exclusives, so by not having something out of the gate it just continues to make me leery and hold off.
Obviously that won't be the case for everyone, especially if you only plan on buying one console and the Xbox is your brand of choice. And with all the studio acquisitions you know eventually there will be some. But I'm waiting for a reason this time as opposed to last gen. So mad at myself at jumping the gun last gen hoping for certain titles that never came.
