I think "One" is designed to keep the focus on "XBox"

 

MS is leading in console video games due to:

comparitively easy and cheap software dev + xbox live + kinect + pixel shader horsepower + strong revenue protection

those elements are in-place and strengthened for XBox One

 

In the UK Sky TV charge about £50 per month for a PVR and TV service

 

XBox One sold on subscription will cost about the same, but you get an amazing game console,not just a PVR

 

So the XBox One allows MS to leverage the XBox to become a major Cloud TV company

 

Companies like Sky are trying to reinvent themselves (because Cloud has to replace Satellite) but MS has all the cards:

 

- better hardware

- better software

- years of experience

- in both cloud and devices

- MUCH more money

 

XBox Entertainment Studios will probably outbid rivals for the major sports, such as soccer and formula 1, in as many countries as possible

 

so the XBox One is a single device targetting 2 markets

 

and anybody can afford one on subscription, so price is not so important ...
