PS4 makes profit and the most powerful console this gen. The gap is getting smaller and PS4 and XBO pretty much use off the shelf PC parts. Wii U was much more custom. Very possible NX has all the power it will need but use common enough components to be affordable on both consumer and manufacturing ends.^ I did read a recent article though saying the NX won't be sold at a loss. What this may mean is that it might possibly not be as powerful as say, a PS4.5. I'd even be surprised if it's as powerful as the PS4.
