Microsoft’s Xbox brand will be “sold to someone like Sony”, failure is “inevitable”.

Interesting discussion. There has been talk of rising internal dissension related to non-core products costing the company too much money for awhile now. We're long past a decade of Microsoft in the gaming industry and billions of dollars later they're still facing the same entrenched competitors.
A few years ago, investors were furious about the entertainment division loosing lots of money. In response to this, MS closed Ensemble Studios and everything not related to the Zune and the console branch. They stopped loosing money after that, but made only small, very small profits compared to what MS earns with Office, Windows or even the server market.

So, is it possible the investors start nagging again? Absolutely! And this time, it may be finally the end of a not very successful long time experiment.
