Nothing lasts forever. 22 years or 44 years, its inevitable if its not meant to be.

Also why would AAA third parties not be happy? Less hardware to developed on sounds like a positive.

Because Sony spends big bucks for the marketing rights of AAA third party games, and in a few cases for timed or outright (console) exclusivity. If Xbox didn't exist anymore, what motivation would Sony have to pay for games when the big third party publishers don't consider Nintendo an option anyway?

But AAA publishers aren't deserving of sympathy, I am merely saying that they'd wish for Xbox to remain a thing.

Thats not Microsofts problem. 3rd parties will always favor the market leader so that's on them in the end.
