It had a good chance last gen but Nintendo beat them via fluke and then later even Sony passed them via worldwide sales.

Yet despite this MS was so confident in making revolutionary changes to the industry with Xbox One, and was promptly put into place by consumers. I'm just wondering why a company as rich as MS can't get the grip on victory.

nintendo doesnt really count since theyve been targeting a completely different group of people with the wii and wii u.

You don't win a console war. And even if you could, what would it matter? I enjoyed games on nearly every single console that has released in America. And I plan to continue to do so despite infantile posts degrading people over their choice of console.

They already have. They have made the most profit out of the big 3. MS hasn't had a true permanent price cut in 4 years. If they were truly worried they would have had a price cut. We never saw one.

MS went from 20+ million sold to 80+million and counting

I'd say they'd consider that a win

I thought the xbox side of microsoft constantly lost money which is why aleast one person (that recently got on the board of directors[?]) wants to sell off the xbox brand.

You thought wrong, and one investor always wants something dumb from any major company. No one credible or important want to spin off Xbox.
