Some tidbits from the article


Besides emphasizing Office, Elop would be prepared to sell or shut down major businesses to sharpen the company’s focus, the people said. He would consider ending Microsoft’s costly effort to take on Google with its Bing search engine, and would also consider selling healthy businesses such as the Xbox game console if he determined they weren’t critical to the company’s strategy, the people said.

“We conclude that Xbox platform plus Windows phone and Skype lose about $2.5 billion per year, and we estimate that the Xbox platform may account for roughly $2 billion of this…”

Except it isn't news (it's barely even gossip), it's been strongly denied and mocked officially by MS, it was already posted and at the top of the page, and you are trolling.

So posting news and giving no opinion on it is now trolling?

I didn't see it on the front page and wanted to get it up quick since it was interesting news so I didn't check to see if it had been posted or not :/

Lol. You probably believe CEOs have 100% say in all operations.

Microsoft is denying bad news about the xbox division just a few weeks before the launch of the new Xbox? Quelle surprise!

There have been many of these rumors floating around for months, combined with the ActiValue group, the co-founder and this potential new CEO coming out and saying they want to get rid of the xbox, I think it's fair to say there is some truth in this.

It's exactly what they sound like. According to this article he wants to sell xbox now I know microsoft came out and denied that this will happen and even did so mockingly. Also, I'm not saying it will happen but it will. and it will be sold to aliens.

That's a great idea!
Let's pretend nothing is happening, then surely nothing will happen!
