I wouldn't mind if they ended up buying Turok or something.

That series desperately needs another chance at revival.

They've never been in this position before. OG Xbox was a money sink. By the time 360 broke even, MS had won and opened a dozen studios to prep fpr this gen.

Last quarter they made $100 for every Xbone they sold. With that dough they could buy 4 x Gears IPs or 12 Quantum Breaks or 50 Sunset Overdrives.

Exclusives: Cheaper than making a loss and more fun to play.

Microsoft is making a lot of moves right now, and money is no object for them.

they are only making $29. and three of those dollars goes to Sony for the blu-ray driver so they only make $26 off each one.

$400m profit, 3.9M xbones sold. I didn't mean they made $100 profit off each unit, I meant they made $400 million is all. :-)

Maybe they can finally start paying back the money they lost from the original Xbox.
I have discovered the perfect game. It is called Starbound, and shall be played forever.

On a serious note.

One of MS's Few top exclusives was about to disappear. Is there a single person legitimately surprised they bought it?
Favorite game to date - Xenogears \/-/-/-/\
If you believe used games are the industries problem, then you sir or ma'am are a fool.
