Well, to undercut my own argument a little bit, it doesn't quite need to be profitable initially; Microsoft has the cash to ride it out, and they did for the Xbox platform until it turned around. But, as a licensed piece of software, they need to move licenses for mindshare.
In any case, we'll see where Microsoft ends up with this sooner or later. I do think they need Nokia to move some units, because they aren't doing a very good job of producing buzz at the moment.
