Many people have been wondering how Microsoft can be making money off the XBox being that you're getting a 733Mhz PC with a GeForce3 comparible graphics chipset at the helm. Well, according to this little article over at Forbes, they aren't making money, quite the opposite. Microsoft is actually loosing $100 per XBox unit they sell. Well, that explains their whole "bundling" marketing ploy ($1000 bundled packages) being that the money is in the software/games.
