They did. MS feels Nvidia did them wrong by not lowering the prices of the GPU which is in the XBox as time went on. You would think costs associated with hardware especially a GPU should fall in price as technology improves. Nvida saw otherwise and wouldnt lower the price and dont forget the XBox GPU is based really on the MX series so MS was still paying top dollars for old technology. MS even took them to court but I cant remember the outcome.
