Xbox One X will not generate profits for Microsoft

27 June 2017

Microsoft could soon be making money from Xbox One X sales, but how long that will take is now unclear.

While the debate on whether or not the Xbox One X is really worth $499 continues, Xbox head Phil Spencer revealed that Microsoft will not be making money for the Xbox One X units that will be sold. Games play better on Xbox One X. The world's most powerful console begins rolling out to all Xbox One markets starting on November 7.

"I don't want to get into all the numbers, but in aggregate you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business", Spencer said. In an interview with PC Gamer, Spencer expressed his hopes that the library will make its way to Windows 10 at some point in the future, accompanied by the Xbox Game Pass that launched last month. Eventually, the cost of making the console will decrease and its profit will increase. But what about this time next year?

"We don't have the deep catalog of games on PC that we do on console, so I've had some pushback from the marketing team that, well it wouldn't necessarily be the best feature right now, because we won't have enough games, but I just want to start".
