Better Mid Gen HW Approach: Sony or MS?

Sony has the weaker upgrade, but it’ll be out a full year earlier than Microsoft.

MS takes the delay, but has a clear console winner in terms of ability- Sony is now in the weaker console position.

Unclear if these consoles will add another 6 years of life, or if its really a stop gap for the next 2-3 years prior to PS5/Xbox4.

I want to say the MS approach will win (I <3 specs), but a year head start is a lot of time for Sony, and most of the general public does not care about specs.
