Not doing a good job of selling this to the gamers in your reveal
To be fair, Apple/Google/Amazon are really eating into MS market share. So this isn't surprising, to say the least.
They took on Sony in the first place because they figured Sony was pinning to dominate living rooms that would increasingly be controlled by computer technologies and smart devices. They focused on games to do it, and Apple among others preformed a reach around while they were distracted.
They're trying to use their userbase to make a dent in their original plans (and appease shareholders who have been waiting almost 15 years now), now at odds with different adversaries. Meanwhile Sony went back to the drawing board and facing losses in other parts of the company doesn’t seem to want to try the be-all product again after the problems it presented this Gen. They don't want to jeopardize their only profit turning division and are playign it a bit more safe.
It is interesting how both companies vision toward gaming and the living room seem to have flipped next gen, by necessity mostly.
