It's looking like this could end up being a likely scenario. MS has piles of cash and their stock is booming as normal.
MS can afford to lose buckets of money because not only do they have a vault full of cash they have the services and subscriptions to offset the losses and position them to knock the snot out of Sony, and take huge chunks of market share next gen. Sony is in a real pickle with this. Sony can't afford to take such losses especially in these current times.
Come on like who's not gonna buy a $400 XSX??? If you say you aren't your full of BS. If you can get an XSX for $400 and have all the best big multi-plat games with the best versions and graphics it's a no brainier especially with Game Pass.
