Xbox One may not work for them as a lot of the time they don't have internet. A lot of college/uni kids simply can't afford the internet. This is quite a slice of the market and Microsoft don't seem to be seeing that.
To be fair I don't think Soldiers represent a significant proportion of the market to concern MS.
I was reliably told that most Halls of Residence now have the internet as standard.
I'm also not convinced that Students can't afford the internet bearing in mind how many I see playing on live now, and the offers that are out there for telephone and internet deals.
In any case, MS aren't pandering to very specific sections of the population.
