They dont have to brake anything. Its as simple as eating some cost. Lets say everybody asumes sony will bring the ps5 at no more than $500. Ms could just deduce what $500 could bring to the table in a console form. Then they could just build sonething for $600 and then sell it for $500 at a lost. Sony might be doing something similar and eat like $50 loss. Ms dont know that so the jump might be minimal but still enough for them to sell it at the same price. Ms knows that they cant compete with sony so im sure they will sell at a lost the anaconda just so they can have the performance crown. As the real console they plan to mas market is the scarlett. The cheap x1x replacement.
Just speculations on my part. Nothing to do with what was just anounced.
It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.
