Actually the money isn't made from selling the consoles, at first they even lost money on every xbox sold.
The big bucks come from games.

as already stated multiple times in this thread, MS does not profit from the actual console sale....

Correct me if I'm wrong but, wouldn't it be necessary to reprogram EVERY SINGLE GAME?
Exactly what I was thinking, it would make no sense hardware wise. To expand on that,games are ported to PC anyway. Unless they're console only, i.e. Gears Of War II.
Besides I'm sure Microsoft is working on the next gen console anyway.

duno if this is already stated, but i think it is quite possible.

think about it. cost of windows : ~100-200 (basic to ultimate)

thats much more profit than a xbox alone, why not allow it to play xbox games.

at this point with all the discounts (150 for 4gb xbox slim), anyone who even wanted one already has an xbox. Wouldn't hurt to port it.

Look at Sony, they putting psp games on ps3 now. That isnt hurting their psp sales.

This would be actually pretty good. At one point in time I had multiple console systems because of exclusive games for each system. The only problem I had was when a game came out for all the consoles which one to buy it for. I ended up just going with PC pretty much exclusively because of mods and things like that. If this actually happened I think it would take a huge chunk out of PS3 sales because now we can play on the console or our PC. Maybe their losing money to Games for Windows instead of people buying for the 360. At least in my area PC gaming is starting to take off with the resurrection of Lan Parties.

This wouldn't negatively affect profits at all. It's simply a means for people, like me, who want to play a 360 exclusive but don't want to buy an unreliable console to do it.



'Cause, you know, I do want to play Grand Theft Horse IV. But it's 360 exclusive.

You do realize that 9/10 times, the console is sold at a loss that they hope is made up by game purchases?
