Really dude you are getting old. All I can see what you are doing is you are simply trying to upgrade your grammar to seem professional. Prove once just once that Microsoft (main) investors have told MS to back out of XBOX. I doubt you will find many sources from the things that you create in your head.
Also I can pretty much guarantee you that Blu-ray wouldn't have won without the Blu-Ray being in the PS3. Game consoles aren't consoles anymore they are home entertainment systems. And as has been stated MS is now making serious money with Xbox Live. The fact that the Windows 7 Phones have direct Xbox Live support and perhaps down the road added Xbox to phone games (if you want me to find a source I will).
Zune as itself will not beat the Itunes store. It is simply not powerful enough now that Itunes is out. If it came out before Itunes we could be talking about a different prospect. But with Zune, and people using Zune also adds more revenue opportunites. They have the service there and will eventually upgrade to the mass demand that it may attract in the future.
Also the way you are talking about Kinect doesn't seem like an opinion. It almost seems you are trying to present your opinion as fact considering you use "I think" in some of your sentences yet not when you mention Sony and Microsoft game consoles about to get the arse. Also Kinect horribly failing and burning.
Again it is getting old.
To all Kinect Naysayers: Play the full version with an open mind, not one you have tried in of the showings. I don't know how Kinect will do but I do know that it is trying something different. Something different might work and might fail. Why must you take so much glee in possibly failing.
