1) It is fair to say that Xbox at the very least does allow MS to get their mindshare out there in different demographics.  But again it all comes down to "Is it worth it?"  Only MS can decide that, but it is easier to justify the expenses if the product at least makes a profit.   That isn't debatable.

2) But Playstation isn't losing money.  Also, MS doesn't need to be in a bad possition to consider selling/ending/transforming Xbox.  Again they want to make money off their investments.

3) Who said MS is in a bad position?  Nobody here.  You know what's easier than weathering a storm?  Not sailing into it.


1) Agreed.

2) They can still make money from the X1 investment. Espeically if they can avoid huge losses that OG Xbox and 360 had. They're spending money to boost X1 sales, but its likely small compared to losses between 2002 - 2007.

3) Great advice, unfortunately Nintendo, Sony, and MS have all done it.
