Microsoft "All-In" on Gaming

An article on Xbox Wire features a conversation between Satya Nadella and Phil Spencer where the Microsoft CEO and head of Xbox discuss why Microsoft is "all in" on gaming. This is excerpted from a larger article on Bringing the Joy and Community of Gaming to Everyone. On a related note, Eurogamer.net parses recent comments from Spencer, calling them a "thinly-veiled dig" at Sony's PC strategy "of releasing its PlayStation-exclusives on PC years after they come out on console." Here's Nadella's take on being all-in:
As a company, Microsoft’s all-in on gaming. We believe we can play a leading role in democratizing gaming and defining that future of interactive entertainment, quite frankly, at scale. There are really three, I think, areas or key areas where we believe we have incredible competitive advantage. First is our leadership in cloud computing; second, the resources we have to build out the subscription value with Xbox Game Pass; and third is our overall focus on empowering creators. I’m really excited about the opportunity in gaming.
