They could very well end up like Sega if they were to go bankrupt using halo as their anchor.

Blah, blah, blah. We've heard this all before. PS3 will fail, Sony will stop making consoles, original X-box will fail Microsoft will get out of the console market.

If anyone thinks the XB1 is going to completely fail, they need their head examined. It may not put up 360 numbers but fail, no.

PS, this is coming from someone who hasn't owned an X-box since the original and I am getting a PS4.

These speculative (aka bs) topics are stupid.

I'd say the same thing about Sony.

Nintendo is really the only one exempt from a statement like that. And that's at least partially on the strength of their handheld division and partially on the strength of their IPs.

I doubt it....the very very very worst is that Microsoft is force to sell the Xbox division to lets say Google and that is an extreme long shot. Sony didn't even want to sell their Playstation division when they were bleeding money with the PS3. After going through three gaming gen I doubt MS whose not Sega and has other means to stay a float too will get rid of the Xbox division.

I won't comment on the subject matter as this is super old and frankly not that interesting. I am however getting a kick out of imagining Master Chief getting raked over the coals like a post Sega Sonic. Master Chief and Microsoft All-Stars Racing sounds too good to pass up.

As a redhead...I have to ask, what is the extreme fascination about us that there is?
