I highly doubt they will axe Xbox as it makes a profit on each console out of the gate.



If you read the article it's all about share holders and short term profit. "Share holder: "Lets sell bing and Xbox so we can get a 1% return on our invest, rather than a 1% loss for the year"

If they sell, MS is done IMO. They have nothing else to compete.Windows 8 and Windows mobile are so horrible, that they can't even give it away. Any company that buys Xbox is going to want to strip out the OS and UI and put their own in. They're not going to want to license Windows to use in the XBO.

MS is far more than just Windows now, their productivity suite (Office, etc) is their big cash cow. Plus server software and Windows 9 undoubtedly is going to aim for businesses again.

Oh no, the Office and Cloud servers are were the money is at right now.
It's why a lot of investors have been asking to focus on those things, the things that actually result in a decent profit.

That and the Military has the contracts with Microsoft for the OS and Office and they over pay for everything. I would think that is a huge chunk of income.

This topic should have died a natural death long ago. Now, it appears, the doomsayers have set up camp. Anyway, back to my Xbox I go.
