Given their investment in Black Tusk, purchasing the Gears IP, etc....why would they be investing in all that if they were looking to sell the brand this whole time?

They could plan to keep the Microsoft Game Studios as a third party developer for the console and PC market, or second party for the XBO. And perhaps still be the provider for the online services. It's all very unlikely, but I think that's one way it could work.



 

 

 

 

 

Eh, I'd be fine with it.

Anybody willing to spend a fuck ton of money to buy something off MS must have some huge plans.

I can't wait to read books using my X1.

Would be interesting if what came out of the talks was that Amazon will be making the disc-less Xbox One. Maybe call it the Xbox Fire. That would make the rumors of the cheaper Xbox One true.

They were probably crunching the numbers on how much money it would take to compete and said, "Fuck it, lets spend a fortune buying the Xbox brand."

Your signature is literally one of the best I have EVER seen. I couldn't stop laughing for a good minute.

As for this news, I can definitely see some benefits. Amazon could create like a unified video/book/gaming serivce similar to Live, which would be pretty cool. Plus as an online retailer they have connections with most 3rd parties.



 

One thing's for certain, if this for some reason is true, then that would mean that everything Xbox would become alot cheaper, they would probably start selling the X1 for $350 or even less.

Interesting. Doesn't sound likely but I would be happy either way.

amazon is very powerful in retail.

awful news for Sony and ninty if true....


Hit Sony and Nintendo somewhere that MS never really could, at direct retail.  Whenever it was brought up that google/apple was going to buy Sony, I always thought amazon would be there first.

 

Would be very interesting if true, though unlikely.
