Forgive me as I only read the first 3 sentences of your wall of text (Tone it down next time).  I don't want MS to leave gaming per se... What I want is for them to stop burning money in the Xbox pitt and focus on PC.  They could simply put their real first party exclusives on PC and bolster its catalog.  And yes it is a financial disaster:

Xbox 360 was profitable in spite of losing a lot of money on hardware issues.

Frankly, $3 billion over 10 years is little to MS especially when the company as a whole is still very profitable. Xbox losses have also shrank over time.

Sony on the otherhand has been losing billions in spite of finding success again with Playstation. You should worry less about Xbox and more about Sony.

These are the points I try to argue every time but it seems to fall on deaf ears when it comes to the Anti MS Sony fanbase.  Indeed they should be more worried about a PS under a bleeding Sony than an xbox under a top of the rich list MS. MS will continue to support the XBOX brand and that is it - no amount of wishful doom posts is going to change the situation anytime soon. Move on and live with it People :) On a side note the latest weekly numbers are indeed encouraging for MS!



Xbox 360 and Xbox One
