Eventually, it will be the case. The main consoles are definitely going to become obsolete. Remember the whole reason why people prefer consoles is because it's cheaper and easier to use than PC gaming. Streaming does a better job than consoles at both of those categories.

Eventually could be 20-30 years from now. If you think we are anywhere close to the end of movie theaters, you're out of tune with the current climate.

As for physical media, it's going to take a long time before that is no longer produced as well.

It will happen over time, movies theaters are closing all across the country and soon Holly wood will release their movies on Hulu/Netflix day one.

What stats do you have that the overall number of movie theaters is declining? A quick google indicates that they are steady and/or slowly growing.

They plan on bringing some of their stuff to Steam aren't they. Still waiting for Forza on steam but I guess I'll just get Project Cars 2 next fall or winter sale.

Really? Provide me with sources to corroborate this.

The problem is the amount of statements Phil has made prior to this one. 

Sure, their long term goal is clear, but we're approaching a new console generation, the last thing the average consumer wants to hear is conflicting information about the future of Xbox exclusives.

The average consumer doesn’t read any of this stuff.

There was zero contradiction in that GamePass on all platforms quote.

Phil has said so many conflicting things its hard to keep track of them all. From E3 this year: 

https://ca.ign.com/articles/2019/06/19/phil-spencer-xbox-focus-is-on-software-and-services-not-console-sales

"Spencer further defended Microsoft's strategy. 'There’s always the core that kind of comes back [with]: 'You’re reducing the need to buy an Xbox.' I actually find that in reality people play on a console because they enjoy playing on a television on the couch with a controller in their hands, and it’s an experiential thing more than it is trying to sell an individual device. To shorten it: We focus on the player; we don’t focus on the device."

The average consumer will definitely see this headline as most major gaming sites will cover it.

Well its even simpler. Invest into the Xbox eco system by buying into a Scarlett or Windows 10 and there is nothing to worry about.

I throught Xbox had no games, yet it seems there is more interest in Xbox IPs than any other.

This thread has been all about MS PR.

Who said anything about Xbox IP's being interesting? There is little incentive to invest in the Xbox ecosystem.

Most of these are opinions, certainly not enough statistical data to support your claim. This is still a multi-billion $ business that isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

You also completely dodged Torillian's source, which is the type I asked of you.

You didn't ask me what type of sources you wanted.

The sources showed compelling reasons why movie theaters will be going away soon. Not to mention I gave you a link on youtube that shows movie theaters are closing in a lot of communities, my included. Torillian's source proves me right as well. Stagnating growth is usually the first sign of a business going under unless they change their business model completely.

Torillian’s source actually refuted what you were saying and did so without opinion (unlike what you provided). Call it what you want, but movie theaters aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
