Since Microsoft loses money on each Xbox purchase (the idea being
they'll start making a profit when the user purchases something like 3
games), in a way, this is taking money from Microsoft.

I believe they're releasing new XBoxes to try and prevent people from
using them for purposes other than MS intended.
