It doesn't matter how many links you post to an article that's complete speculation, it's still speculation. Rather flawed, nonsensical speculation at that. But keep trying so hard, it's cute.

I'm calling bs. MS' entertainment division was posting a profit before Android and didn't experience a huge bump in profits when the patent money was being added.

Just another moron wanting the Xbox spun off.

MSFT has made more money in the last quarter than SNE has in the past 5+ years.

So you think that Microsoft would continue support of something that has been bleeding them of billions of dollars?

How does this make sense?

The Playstation Division lost even more money on PS3 destroying all their profits from the PS1 and PS2, and then some, not sure how much longer they'll stay.

Sony and Xbox division will both manage just fine, IMO.
