Xbox lost Microsoft $4 billion over 4 years

The company has always been willing to operate at a loss in order to establish itself in the gaming industry, and we reported back in July that they’re willing to lose money on the Xbox 360 as well. $4 billion is still a massive loss to be making however, and one has to wonder how long and how much Microsoft bean counters have set aside for the Xbox franchise to start making money.

Must be such a cut-throat business to be in, don’t you think?
