Yes, we do.

Without Xbox controller, no dualshock and dualsense redesigns from Dualshock 3. Without Xbox Game Pass, no PS Extra (I don't count PS Premium, as it is mostly PS Now, which existed before). Nor even Nintendo Switch online retro games catalog.

During the late 80s/early 90s, it was Nintendo vs Sega and Atari (in the US), NEC (in Japan) trying to compete. During the 2000s, it was Sony vs Nintendo with Sega and then Microsoft trying to compete.

Competition is good for the market. And the current state of the market is very competitive.

Why do Sony keep making Xperia phones even if the whole market is basically around iPhones, Samsung phones and some chinese brands ? Because they want to have a presence in the market. And I'm glad they do, I always had Sony Ericsson phones (Sony only since 2011), their design philosophy is what I like about their phones. But they sell like 3 per quarter. And everybody gets inspired by Sony phones (waterproof phones, slow motion camera, fingerprint reader on the lock button, 21:9 aspect ration - mostly copied as 20:9 aspect ratio currently)

Sounds like a Sony problem if they can't innovate. 

What happened to Sega, Atari and NEC?

Sony rely on Android OS. There is no 3rd Mobile OS.

Also why would AAA third parties not be happy? Less hardware to developed on sounds like a positive.

Less leverage.

Not Microsoft's problem. They aren't a charity just to level out the console industry.
