MS isn't moving away from HW though. And they are the first of the big 3 to announce plans into new next gen HW, because they want their brand more focused on HW. Their actions over the last 10 years had a marked shift from providing good SW choices to a more HW focus, starting with the kinect. I would also include Accessories (kinect) and controllers in the HW category. They often provide interesting controller choices and even aired a commercial during Super Bowl 2019 about controllers and not SW, as is often the case with Sony and Nintendo commercials. We also always hear rumors about MS's focus on HW, for example "power of the cloud!" Sony makes a lot more SW deals than MS, as well as makes a lot more SW. MS's least focus is SW.
