Exactly.............MS is puilling to wool over peoples eyes again, Xbox is such a small part of MS business only a fraction of their cloud will evr be used for xbox.
There is no wool. MS has the capacity to provide a cloud based compute service and dedicated servers for all developers on their platform. the fact that MS is expanding their business as a service is the reason all of their products benefit from this investment. The investement is still there no mattter how you spin it. The service and the infrastructure is there. Even the platform which MS spent 3 years build which is Orleans is there. I am not sure where you get the wool part. MS has the capability to provide the resources to support their claim and they spent more than 2 billion this year building more capacity.
I am not sure what conclusion you are coming to. Just because the X1 is not the primary revenue business for MS does not detract that it benefits from other areas of the business that make sense like Azure.
