Considering the x1 is sold at a slight profit(or will break even) at launch then yes.

So you figured a person will a buy a game. Therefore even if the console itself is sold at no profit margin they will make money of the game sale and also in Xbox live subscription.

Last I heard, correct me if I'm wrong, the ps4 will have to be sold with a game AND psn to break even. Not sure where I read this tho.

This topic is not about the ps4, but i did want to compare them in this aspect.

as you read the poll, please remember that there is a LOT of haters online right now AND that the PS3 was dissed a bunch and it still more than broke even.

Ha! I just re read the question... Which was in the "long run" so heck YES! If they are making money day one (which they will be) I can't imagine why it won't make money in the "long run".

I think the PSN and Xbox arcade stores has gotten a lot of regonition. They should be Successful just by selling games there. I prefer physical but I do like digital games sometimes. I hope they don't release too many digital games. It's annoying to access Internet to buy a videogame. It costs too much to have Internet and downloading costs money. A Local Retailer like EBgames is easier for me.

xbox and playstation will sell enough.

I think you'd be a fool to think otherwise. Just how successful is a different matter though.

A success? Sure. A financial success. I personally don't think so.

They are aiming for breaking even according to their VP of marketing and strategy. Of course, to do that, they have to hit their sales numbers, so if people don't warm up to the XBO in the next year or so, they will probably lose some money on the system.

On a related note, this is why there won't ever be a Kinect-less version. They'll be breaking even by selling the console at $499. If they released a Kinect-less version, they'd basically be ensuring that they lose money on the system.
