i can assure you no company sells hardware at a loss


Actually outside of Nintendo every console is sold at a loss until well into the lifespan of said console.

Hell MS was losing $125 per Original Xbox sold.

Very much this. The real money is made in software sales.

This guy made the same topic yesterday, and said the same thing.

We proved to him that the price INCLUDES the Kinect.

He's a troll, or just an ignorant idiot. Topic flagged.

That's why they hide all their online features behind a paywall.

Sorry if this truth has your knickers all in a bunch.

The link to Joystiq and the article that I've copied here pretty much speak for themselves. Yet this is somehow trolling in you worldview? And if creating a topic on GF about a news article is against the TOU, well that would be news to me. Calm down buddy.

"The Xbox One Console costs Microsoft $471 to build, according to a hardware teardown and analysis by research firm IHS.....IHS says that the Xbox One's Kinect camera adds $75 to the total cost of the Xbox One, including assembly.

So....'nuff said.

Which means the console costs $395.


Maths are not your strong subject, are they?

These are never fair evaluations because these people have no idea what companies pay for the parts in the first place, they're only going by consumer prices, and believe me, they are not paying those.
