MS is supposedly going to break even at $499 with X1(but who knows now after their whole scrambling to up the specs thing) and I believe that Nibtendo was taking like a $25 loss with eac Wii U sold a while back. Nintendo said something like they would break even if each customer bought 1 game with their Wii U

 

OT: $60? I'm impressed

Which is what makes the whole thing really fucking confusing.  Since the XOne is so much lower powered.

The only thing I can guess is Microsoft and Sony are using different metrics on what "Break Even" means... with MS including more.

 

Either that or Kinect is way more expensive then we can imagine.


I think I remember somebody from MS saying that Kinect was almost as expensive as the console itself.  Not sure how true that actually is, but I think it is safe to assume that Kinect is fairly expensive to produce.  The statements from Sony & MS are pretty vague, so who knows what they are including and what they are leaving out.
