How does the X1 (which is weaker hardware) cost more to make than the PS4? Doesn't make any sense.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about do you? You think the kinect was cheap to design?

Kinect costs $75 to make.............

The Kinect cost $75 to manufacture, which makes the system cost still more expensive than the PS4s launch price. Not a counter argument.

Meanwhile Sony sell the Playstation 4 at a profit loss, just like the Playstation 3. Microsoft have different marketing strategies compared to Sony.

MS sell the One at more or less the exact same loss. What is it with you people?

Last I heard PS4 only cost $381 to manufacture...so they are profiting somewhat - especially compared to the losses of the PS3.

Both consoles are taking a loss since those figures don't take into account things like shipping. Even then its a minor loss, one game, or one controller and the console loss is negated.
