Comment on "Microsoft Points System for Zune"
by lookmark — Sep 28
It's even stranger, actually.... since it's a standard model for the game console business to lose money on selling consoles for first year or two, and make it up on licensing games.

But for mp3 players, there's only a tiny amount of income to made selling music.

So, really, MS is willing to lose hundreds of millions in an attempt to try to throw a wrench in way of the iPod juggernaut a bit. (And, actually, I don't blame them; the future of the standard for digital media may be at stake. But it doesn't make the 1G Zune any less underwhelming.)
