I want new hardware every year. Generations are a bad concept and hurtful to both consumers and developers.
Hardware more ofeten would be great. I think every year is a bit too often, but I wouldn't be against it is something justifiable becomes possible. All I would really need to upgrade would be a new HDMI standard, Support for Higher Resolutions, Better Audio Playback, More RAM, a new Bluetooth or USB standard, basically if they can introduce a new standrard from the current year, then I am good with an upgrade. Then there is the obvious of a new fab process, offering either lower power consumption or improved CPU/GPU for better performance.
I don't think generations are a bad concept though. Having a baseline to build to is a good thing. I know that if the target was moving that developers could set their own baseline, but that would make it difficult for consumers. I think it is better for the market if there are generations. It makes it easy for consumers to understand. If they go to the store and pick up a game that says PS5, it works on any PS5. Having a generational standard for a decade, while people that want better performance, or the latest tech standards from their box have the option to upgrade within the generation, IMO is the best possible scenario.
For me the XBO X doesn't feel too dated. I have a UHD Blu-ray Drive, support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, a new Elite Controller coming this year that uses USB Type-C. The only thing the XBO X is lacking is VR support. The Pro on the other hand is in need of an upgrade, as is the PSVR.
Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
