Unless you have MS stock it should not concern you.


Why waste $500 with such a uncertain future?

Because as far as gamers go...it's not. But heck..if it makes a few of your ilk dreaming at night then to each their own.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

So MS spent 200 mill making the next gen controller,bought up 300,000 servers and are pouring 1 billion on new IPs and devs so they can go under?

If MS really wants to lose a lot of money then scrap X1 and there game division,does that really sound like a good buisness move?and the fact that X1 will make a profit on day one.

This will not happen this gen,Stephen Elop is saying this hoping that this gen will be MS last in the game buisness but it will not happen this gen that is for sure.

Be so great having Sony and MS out of gaming...Having one console...everyone having the same system, same games, same online...Sounds like a dream to me.

Where did they say they're scrapping it? They're planning on selling it. That means they'll get money back in return. Also they're forecast to make a 40% profit should they sell off the Xbox brand.
