Too be honest I find this funny. People buy PC's more because it is 'cheaper' than Mac-based computers. People buy the XBOX console because it is cheaper than a 'PlayStation®'. The PC messes up a lot. The XBOX tends to mess up as well.

The only reason why people have XBOX, is because it is cheaper.

Wow! So with all Xboxs the can monitor how many hours each user plays each day? That is epic.
Certainly seems that way, probably doesn't count the ones that aren't online though.
