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

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.

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 they don't, if they did they would pack it all in. What they get out of it far outweighs the losses.

You do remember Bill introduced the money pitt that was original xbox right? And then they went and made another that lost billions at launch ...

So you don't feel bad?! You monster! Those poor souls paid 50$ more =(

Hopefully you can take your receipt and get that money back, I'm sure you'll be able to.

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.

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

Microsofts investors website, their fiscal reports. It's easy to find on google, go look yourself.

Hah, you are a gem. Tell others to provide some cold hard numbers and you just randomly introduce some into your argument with nothing to back it up or links to where you find them. Then you tell others to google it yourself. Bravo, you are wonderful.

Well that was quicker than I thought. But honestly I was surprised to see them put the price back up to $399 in the first place.. This should probably ensure Xb one outsells PS4 on a monthly (NPD) basis in the USA for most of the year. If it doesn't...

MS has obviously recognised that consumers perceive that Xb one is just not as good a machine as PS4, and thus Xb one needs to be at a lower price point. Even though the PR says USA, I wonder if other markets will get an official price cut soon. It's already officially cheaper in the UK right, 325 vs 299?
