Power? Surely the xbox series X, ps5 might have a pro model that reaches almost that power, but its all irrelevant, even 8TF with the next architecture would be more than enough, we are reaching a point of diminishing returns, even the xbox X and ps4 pro have enough power for most people if games were optimized for those consoles.
1800p resolution is already overkill, no one needs 4K on less than 100inch screen, unless you're playing on PC which people tend to play closer to the screen. And current consoles could do easily 60fps if games were optimized for it.
I don't think a lot of people will be upgrading this year, several reasons
1 - No xbox series X exclusives for 2 years
2 - Coronavirus will dip into the savings of a lot of people who are out of jobs, I'm already here in the hotel with no guests, I'm hoping I can stay here doing nothing and still getting paid, but my luck might run out, I have other priorities than videogames, I need a new car, and I have house bills to pay, need to get the place painted too, which will cost over 1000dollars.
3 - Several ps4 exclusives coming out soon, some will be the best games of the generation, likely last of us 2, so there is no rush to upgrade yet
4 - People who actually cared for graphics and resolutions have already upgraded to X and pro, they surely didn't stick to launch consoles
5 - People with gaming PCs already will have all Xbox series games, so there's no need for an Xbox at all
With that said, I am sure ps5 will outsell the Xbox series 2:1, no questions about it, power really doesn't matter, its like the Xbox OG vs ps2, if Sony has at least 2 great exclusives at launch, such as GT7 and horizon 2, then that number might actually be 3:1
The Xbox one had luck because the 360 created a lot of fanbase, so people were excited, but look now, who is excited? I see no one talking about the new console, imagine in 8 months, everyone will have forgotten that Microsoft has a new console coming out.
Sony should announce as late as possible, to make the hype fresher closer to release date. Sony should not even advertise power, just advertise the new exclusives and its a win, as long as its at least 3x more powerful than ps4 slim, people will be more than happy.
