That's the joy of mass production, they can get the units made for cheap. If they want anything else to sell, people need a reason to buy it. Nvidia's RTX release never had competition with the console market.
Windows 10 can already do everything that an Xbox does. If an Xbox has better hardware, is it that big of a stretch to think that windows 10 could be loaded on it and it could work as a desktop computer? P.S. Windows 10 ain't all that. Any OS could be used, the only question is how hard it is to get working drivers. Gotta love AMD...
