Its unlikely X1 will lose that kind of money unless they run into some sort of hardware issues as well. So they can still make back losses like 360 did.
Doubt it, they invested huge in it expecting PS like sales and market domination.
Its failing big time doing that, all their estimated are now gone down their crapper. Cascading effect, X1 low sales small user base casues everything else to severly underperform and add up to one big loss. Come on they spent 100million on the freaking controller, doable cost if you are planing to sale +100 million but a waste if you will end on 35/40m. Then there are Kinect costs, ok if its sold with a 100m X1, now ill be lucky to hit 10 million. I cant even imagine the loss on that they will eat if they can spend $100million on a freaking controller.
For what MS wanted it to be the X1 is a dud, lower 1st party sales much lower 3rd party sales much lower Live subscription. Ms X1 tv dreams dying if not dead already. Kinect near dead. All the promotions free games cuts they were forced into, all add up to one big loss.
But hey MS is super rich, they can afford it they will eat the loss and keep going as many MS fans claim thay can.
