I was going to post a lengthy response explaining that profits is all that matters and that Xbox division makes a lot more of that from PC Gamepass users than it would by forcing hardware sales of console by not having a Gamepass, but then I realized your Kirby and I am assuming you are just trolling?
It was going to be a great hypothetical debate, too!
they released the best console in about 2 decades and its still selling like its horrible predecessor PRwise, dunno where you see this going but less than 30 million wouldn't suprise me
Ah so we are getting serious then?
It's selling bad because, in part, a lot of people are going the pc gaming route due to Gamepass, therefore not purchasing Xboxes. This saves MS money by them not having to make and sell more xbox console for a loss and instead have gamers paying for and playing their games on PCs. Who cares that Xbox console sales are bad when they are becoming more popular and making more money because of it? The console sales are only bad because games are available on PC now. If Gamepass PC wasn't around then Xbox hardware sales would be higher but their profits would be flushed down the toilet.
The simple reality is the more gamers game on PC the more money MS makes and the less money MS loses on console hardware.
