Doesn't sound like a successful business venture at all.

Nope, this also seems to be the reason the higher up guys are talking about spinning off the xbox division.

Although this is unconfirmed, it would make sense when you combine all of the news that's been leaking out.

And it's only going to get worse. I'm a 360 owner who will be getting a PS4 and there are millions more just like me.

Xbox brand has sadly been a disaster so far.

Wont get better with the disaster Xbone will turn out to be either which may finish the brand. This doesnt bode well for consumer confidence.

I wonder if those fanboy dudes who argued that 720p is just as good as 1080p are going to argue that losing 2 billion a year is just as good as making a profit... lol

We don't need to, this isn't a fact or even news, it's been debunked and you are a troll. A very late and unoriginal troll who apparently missed the other 8 or so topics.

Just do a search. I'm interested in your future posts of fiction.
