Are you serious you think a company doesn't care if it's losing money? Please...
Wasn't losing money that they reached this good condition they are today. Money is what they care the most.

also to add that xbox never makes profit

happenned since original xbox

Do your research, from 08 onwards the Xbox division made profits (one year was as high as $1.3b with little else in the division making bank) it's not known if 360 overall made a profit, but for years the Xbox division was profitable.

You shouldn't bandie around quotes like that unless you can back them up with cold hard numbers.

WOW. I'm sure all those people who bought an XB1 at the higher price will love this.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


Now to see if the real bosses (aka the shareholders) of MS will be willing to tolerate a second generation of massive losses from Xbox division. Cause that's where they're headed if they commit yo being $50 ahead of the price drop curve relative to their production costs.

A week? Really? I shouldn't complain since the cheaper the consoles are the better is for me, but I swear that Microsoft acts like an unstable bitch sometimes.


To be honest, it really hurts the value of the product.
No one will be willing to buy it at the "normal price" anymore, because they know if they don't price cuts will just come, really fast.
They should seriously keep it as the official price.



Good move. Nice way to match the PS4 TLOU bundle.

They're not cold hard facts, that's journalism (and it was debunked and shat on yonks ago). Come to me with numbers.

I actually have figures for that division and Xbox losing $2b a year is an impossibility.

Rock Sherlund does not like Xbox and has an axe to grind.

Who actually cares? They make 5 billion dollars per quarter.

MS evidently do not care, success and marketshare far outweigh any profits for them right now.

Like I said, they make more than enough profit not to care about making a profit on Xbox right now. I'm sure they'd like to make a profit, but they can live without it, with ease.


I'm pretty sure if we call Bill Gates right now and ask him if the doesn't care if he's losing money he will laugh on us.
They can lose money, but they definitely don't want it and care a lot if they are losing.

No offence but you're not providing any facts either. Where are you getting these numbers? Links would help you out a lot =)
