If someone would have said this a year ago i wouldn't have gave it any attention. But with the New CEO(don't know his view on xbox) Amazon wanting asset in gaming ie aquiring Double Helix. The constant rumors of investor wanting to get rid of xbox can't help but wonder though.


those investors are vocal but they are in the minority cause there are many (tons of) investors in MS so basically spit of interest


Just because they are minority doesn't mean they don't know what they are talking about or aren't right.
Xbox division has not turned a LTD profit yet and it's over a decade old.

OG Xbox was a failure. 360 was a success but red rings destroyed the profit margins and 50% of the sales were actually replacing dead consoles.

Microsoft was gunning hard to get into advertising and taking over the living room since day 1 as their prime interest in Xbox, not getting into the gaming industry.


hmm, the same guy has said amazon dont have the profits lol

This would make a lot of sense for Amazon.
They have their prime service they've been trying to push which only kindle owners really use and while kindles sell well for a single product, they sell poorly for pushing an entire ecosystem.
Amazon could get rid of live and just add it to their prime fees so you'll pay $100 a year and get live, prime videos and streaming, the free shipping for amazon items and more. Plus with Amazons massive server network, live would be no problem for them.
They could use the xbox dashboard to put all their adds for other products to sell. For example you turn on your xbox and ads for things to buy related to your last amazon purchases pop up.
They might even put in game streaming options, letting you pay fees to stream games and play them.

Basically they could treat xbox how they treat all other markets aka selling a product below cost and putting ads all in it and getting you to buy into their services.
