It's just not going to be in the traditional way.

The Xbox is going to be absorbed into Windows 10 and/or Windows 11. It's already happening with all the games working on both platforms. Microsofts actions speak louder than Phil Spencers words on this.

Here's the real question, do you think they're going to make a TV media device?

That's what Xbox really is, its their successful way into the living room. Five years from now I anticipate a newer Xbox One.

To be fair he does not state nothing about Consoles in his twitter, his answer was regarding "Gaming" that is much wider than just Consoles.

But sending all their games for the PC will not help the sales of the Scorpio.

His second tweet.

Now ask him if he'd consider the Scorpio to be a PC ...

Don't both current gen systems play music, have a web browser, download patches,and sport an HDD?.



                                       

They'll leave eventually, anyone denying that is kidding themselves.

Being absorbed into Windows is isn't leaving by any rubric.



Well, this is new.

He wouldn't be honest about something like that. To be fair, none of the big 3 would admit that they were leaving the console market when they had hardware in the current gen. It would destroy their hardware and software sales.

 

Why not? SEGA did it and they're still fine up to this day, producing some nice software.

First off, that picture of link is disturbing... secondly, were you around when Sega did that? The Dreamcast had to be marked down to $49.99... and it STILL didn't sell lol. People jump ship when they find out the company is abandoning them.



Eh, I kind of expect them to leave, and just focus on more of a PC gaming aspect. With all their "exclusives" being available in the Windows 10 store, it almost seems inevitable. Plus, you know, it's Microsoft.



The only people who gave the "rumor" any legitimacy are fanboys. Because we all know you announce two new systems because you're about to leave Xbox behind, right?! RIGHT?!

"They'll leave eventually", like how people said this during the first generation Xbox?
