“Many people know I’ve been on Xbox for over 20 years, and I want to make sure Xbox is in the best position for the next 20 years,” Phil Spencer said. “Our hardware is a critical component of that. The absolute best experience someone has on Xbox is hardware that our team builds and that people play on.”

*Looks at watch* So in 6-8 months they are going to announce winding down said console dept. Good to know.

In the extremely unlikely event that happens, it might mean they would actually start giving a shit about PC gaming again. I don't believe in hope, though, so I am going to mark that down as "As likely to happen as me winning the lottery twice."

In about 12 months one of us is going to look silly. We'll find out I suppose.

FYI Xbox is more profitable than Windows

But the only part of the business that is NOT profitable is the console. And now XBox is on PC, it's on Meta Quest headsets...there's even rumors that someday in the next couple of years it will come to Playstation. Which is why Phil is trying to plug the leaky ship and keep everyone from quitting right now while they figure out how to wind down production.

Reminds me when they told us they would definitely NOT shut down the IBM Endicott plant even though they had just built a plant in China making the same chips. And then 9 months later...they shut down the IBM Endicott plant.

They make a good console - I wouldn't think that he would have to reiterate that fact. I personally would rather that gaming was universal (all games for all gamers for all time!) but that isn't the way the world works.

Ya kinda gotta make a few games every once in a while that don't suck to make it worth it though Phil...
