Microsoft's business model is the same as it has always been: draw blood from the stone. Instead of expanding their market with brand-new IPs (okay, they did have Kinect) or offering their customers more value, they try to get more money out of the same customers (Xbox Live Gold, DLC, increasing XBLG price, advertisements on the dash, etc).

Xbox One's business model is the logical extension of what 360 has been doing for YEARS. Draw blood from the stone.
