In an interview with Fox Business, Gates answered some probing questions about the possibility of selling off the Xbox and Bing divisions — and while he didn’t come out as being for or against a potential spin-off, his responses strongly hinted that the company is continuing to ponder the possibility. Gates said he’s certain that “Satya and the team would look at that [selling the Xbox division] and it’s up to them.” If the new CEO chose do so, he would “absolutely” support him. Following Gates’ comments, Microsoft’s communications chief Frank Shaw was quick to tweet: “Bill’s comments re Xbox reflected support of Satya as CEO” — not support for a possible sale of the Xbox division.
Not much to go on, but it's still something to think about for a moment. Hell, Microsoft is apparently losing money on the Xbox.
Also, all three 8th-gen consoles have failed in Japan as they seem to prefer playing mobile games on their phones.
Not to mention all the game studios that we have lost.
Has gaming really come to this? (this is a good read, you should check it out).
