What you have to remember is Gates is in favor of Xbox, while he may not control as much stock his opinion carries weight. It would be like an investor telling Steve Jobs no we dont like that you cant do it at Apple. Just imagine how that would go.


Investors even wanted to get rid of Gates just a few weeks ago:

God that is wrong on so many levels. Way to spit in the face of your company's founder... it's like the British tossing Churchill out of office right after WWII ,like "thanks for saving the world, don't let the door hit you on the way out!"


Yeah, there's a real power struggle going on up there.
First Balmer, who was Gates' go-to-guy and now they're trying to get rid of Gates himself.

I wouldn't be surprised if they succeed, either.
ValueAct is known for cleaning up companies and trying to generate as much money as possible in a short amount of time.

They're also the ones responsible for Adobe Photoshop becoming a subscription service. These guys will step on anything to get their way.

Despite all the negative press regarding the Xbone, I will definitely acquire it after a price drop along with good library of games.

That's one of the issues I have as well: the xbox has the most exclusives at launch, but after that, it seems dead silent.
We know there's a Halo coming somewhere in the future, Projekt Spark and there's Titanfall, but besides that, I can't name anything.

Where's Bill Gates? maybe he should still be in charge. Look at MS now.

Must have spent too much money to get any exclusives other than Titanfall.
