"My view is there are some parts of that operation they should probably spin out, get rid of, to focus on the enterprise and focus on the cloud." Nomura analyst Rick Sherlund claims Microsoft’s financial earnings could be boosted by 40 percent in fiscal 2015 if the company sold its Bing and Xbox businesses.

Looks like the power of the cloud is deadly to the Xbone.

Lol - yep. And always the SAME names over and over.

Someone is also desperately trying to start a flame war in another topic about that rumored GPU boost that was debunked 6 weeks ago. You'll also recognize that topic's creator. Lol - and they claim they're only here for honest discourse.

Unreal.....

I get the vibe from every topic like this just lately...

"hey look, us gamers - we have an interest in financial situations too!"

Since the fudge when?

Did not even see the other topic. And the only person talking about flame wars is you. Please go troll another topic.

We only care when those financial situations relate to gaming or have the potential to relate to gaming.

A potential CEO that wants to kill the Xbox brand qualifies.

This is Xbox news on an Xbox board. If you don't like it,
#dealwithit

If this comes to fruition, then Xbox is doomed and I don't want that to happen.
