Anyone worried that Microsoft might sell off there Xbox rights?

I'm a little worried that Microsoft might be giving up support for the Xbox one are any of you? I have a bad feeling Microsoft will just be like it's not worth the investment to compete in the console market.

What are your thoughts?

You're not alone TC. As a very successful businessman myself I hate all the profit I make. I'm considering selling off my company so I don't have this burden anymore, it's really draining.

Even if, an incredibly unlikely if, who has the interest and the money to buy all of it?

Sure, but the $20+ billion value leaves the prospective buyer list small.

An analyst said so w/o providing proof, hence it must be true...

They make billions off of Xbox Live subscriptions(not to speak of stuff like ad space) each year alone. No matter how much they may have lost on hardware costs, selling Xbox would be absolutely braindead. And this is from someone not too keen on MS products anymore. XBL pretty much prints money, thier systems sell extremely well despite the price difference between it and the competitors, and they get tons of revenue from adspace and software sales. Throwing that all away makes sense... why?

Do you have any official, factually confirmed sources for that?


All that I've read states that they hide their earnings from the Xbox division during the accounting process, by including the numbers into another section.
