Phil Spencer was recently interviewed by Business Insider and during the interview, he was asked about the profitability of the Xbox One X. The interviewer asked if Microsoft will make any money on the Xbox One X at $500 which Phil responded saying “No” to the question.
When the interviewer asked if they are taking a loss on the Xbox One X, Phil said “I didn’t answer it that way” and didn’t offer any further detail. It sounds like having the most powerful console ever made comes at a high price both literally and figuratively.
Will the gamble of the Xbox One X pay off? We should find that out later this year when the Xbox One X launches on November 7th.
