I don't believe it. M$ doesnt lose money. Maybe they made less on Xbox 1 than they wanted to, but I dont see a loss.

No, it's true. Microsoft is losing money because it costs more to make the X360's but they're selling them for less. Just like Daemon said. However, Microsoft can afford this kind of loss. Microsoft has it's software programs to rely on. (Windows, Office, etc.) A loss of $60 is seriously nothing to MS.

True, I have read this somewhere. A little loss is just nothing to MS, so they don't worry about it too much.

I still think MS is rushing their next gen system though. XBOX might've had another year in it but MS is going to kill it with the release of the X360...

I think so too, especially now that backwards compatibility is pretty much a fact...

X360 is only going to be backward compatible with certain games though. IMO, this is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. How the hell are you going to go:

"Our system is backward compatible... sort of."

If your going to do something don't do a half ass job, go all the way. Look at the 2 different versions of the X360. If your going to do something, go all the way. I seriously hope this crap blows up in MS's face. Maybe that'll knock some sense into them.

I've heard that the Premium Package will feature backwards compatibility with all the Xbox games. Something with a emulation or something like that (if I'm wrong, correct me).

Hmm... dunno. First time I've heard about that. If they only do that with the Premium package then that's just bullshit. I would never buy another Microsoft product again if that's the way they want to do business.
