Microsoft Xbox Catastrophe

I keep wanting to stop having negative Microsoft stories, but this is failure in a whole new area.

Xbox is rather successful with consumers, but Microsoft has to date not really made a profit with it. [The consoles are subsidized so that Microsoft loses money when they come out, but then makes money when people buy games... so far this cycle has generally led to a near zero profit.]

A few days ago I pointed out this story:
Xbox One: The Most Restrictive Game Console Ever Made

Now, Windows uber-pundit, Paul Thurrott writes:
It’s very possible that the Xbox One, by trying to be all things to all people, will simply be yet another Windows 8. And that is not what Microsoft needs right now.
See his whole article here: What if Xbox One is Another Windows 8?
