Who actually cares? They make 5 billion dollars per quarter.
well, presumably microsoft's shareholders care. people have been vocal about pressuring nadella to drop or spin off the xbox operation altogether... in fact, there were business articles not too long after he took over speculating that that's precisely what he would do. they've cut off products before (zune), and they would have cut off surface if the surface 3 hadn't been a moderate success and carved out its own little niche ("laptop replacement"). xbox one, financially, is not a success for them by any means. and by nadella's own reckoning, microsoft needs to focus on "cloud first, mobile first." i do not see how xbox fits into that equation--and by cloud he means cloud-based enterprise solutions/tech consulting, not xbox live.
