Xbox One makes $400 million loss

Post by Willow on Sun Aug 10, 2014 11:51 pm

ouch! or £238 million!

Was reading an article that suggested such

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/gaming/microsoft-loses-400m-on-the-xbox-one-9659069.html

reality is launching a new console is very expensive and it does take a while to make the money back (if it ever does), its not just console manufacturing costs its also R&D, advertising and paying for exclusive ect

This is why I believe these new systems are only modest systems. They all MS, Sony and Nintendo need to keep costs down as much as I would have loved a console with a core i7 8 core setup and a Titan graphics card, it was never to be as the system would be mega expensive and even at £600 would be sold at a loss (a Titan graphics card is around £700 +) and people would not pay that except for ultra hard core, which would be a small group not enough though

It does make you think though, and make you appreciate they systems you have more
