Yes, Microsoft will sell *millions* of XBones. But look at it this way, Sony sold millions - and they lost so much money from that division that it has had a dramatically negative effect on the company and its image and future. Sony is a different company than they were a decade ago - largely due to the decisions around the PS3 (and PSP) and the aftermath.

There are three business models for game hardware:
- Make money from the start (Nintendo, Apple)
- Lose money at first but turn to profit through manufacturing efficiency and licensing, etc - Microsoft, Amazon, etc.
- Lose money forever - Sony.
