Tell me what valid reason he gave to label Xbox not successful.

Lack of a viable long term vision.

True. It's totally not clear what Microsoft wants the Xbox brand to be.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Not accurate, pick something that's 15-20m behind something else and say it's close to outselling, then youre on the money 

It is well on its way. It will do another 15M very easily.

Weekly sales of 100k, Inc holiday bump you're looking at 2+ years, how many switches do you think will have been sold in 2 years time? (clue: they're apparently manufacturing 25-30m for 2018 alone)

Xbox one will end this gen in last place.

They're probably gonna try to make more exclusives and continue making games for PC and Xbox.

Make?

MS Biggest 1st Party Studios were basically built around a single franchise.

Which Studio is going to drop its franchise to make something new?

Turn 10?

Coalition?

343 Studios?

I think they will buy a few more studios and Rare is also working on an unknown game.

Long term, XB (Live) is headed for service only. One that you can connect to on as many devices as possible. If MS can get an XB app on PS or NiN consoles eventually, you can most likely say goodbye to XB hardware. PC and XB are just the base to allow MS to make this happen.

That is an independent studio, also it is rumored that the game will be multiplat.

I know it's independent, and to be honest I agree with your point, but if it is an exclusive to Xbox it still counts.

I don't think it's rumored to be multiplat?

When all is said and done, it's a tablet. Just one that's dedicated to Nintendo products. 

So your answer is none?

So you're saying no tablet with an HDMI port has never existed before? C'mon now

My question is:

If Xbox cease to exist tomorrow, what will be the legacy of Xbox? How did they contributed to the industry? In which way they pushed the industry forward?

https://youtu.be/zbuTfEQflI0

My list would be

-Built in HDD (Xbox)

-Achievements/trophies (Xbox 360)

-online profile (Xbox 360)

-Streaming video on consoles (Xbox 360)

-Downloadable game library (Xbox 360)

-cloud storage (Xbox 360)

-Broadband gaming (Xbox)

I'm sure some (if not most) of these were on PC, though. I'm not a PC gamer so I don't know.
