MS is really really smart. Xbox is Competing With PS but MS is Competing With Google.
Since Google wants to come into the Gaming world and have shown already their streaming capacity its Just the best move for MS to Look into the Future and stay AS a Service with a Few exclusives to be different from the Other streaming Plattforms. Neither Sony and obviously Not Nintendo has the Power to Back this Up with alot of Money and losses. Google has. The Future will be PS with its own machine vs Nintendo + MS Stream. MS will make the biggest Profit from this Deal. This is Genius.
