Peter: I read that Microsoft loses somehting like $50 on every X-box they se.. Jason: So een though they sell them to Best Buy for like $150 each, they're paying $20 to the manufacturer? Why doesn't Best Buy sell them back to Microsoft for $190 and undercut the manufacturer's price? Peter: I'm not sure economics is ready for you. Jason: Heck, why can't the manufacturer just buy them for $179 like we can?
