That's kinda why I think it will all come down to price. There were news reports that Sony was having trouble getting the price of the PS5 down to $500 with just parts alone costing around $450. Not seeing how Microsoft can get the Xbox Series X down that low unless they are willing to take a substantial initial loss.

It’s entirely possible that’s the case. It wouldn’t be the first time MS sold Xbox hardware at a loss to move software.
