The business model isn't that complicated. The real money is in software sales. The more units they have out there, the more resources developers put into developing titles for the hardware and the more money everyone makes off of software. They could put the top of the line hardware in there and sell the system at a loss to get it out there and recoup in software. However, that strategy also has a bottleneck on it because not many people have televisions that can support the resolution and refresh rates and people tend to keep tvs much longer. Thus we get mediocre hardware for a medium price.
