Truth is, Greenberg is just a flunkie and has no corporate decision making power at all. The facts are that Amazon has come out and started talking about an Amazon game console. This is intertwined with Steam machines out now. Notice, Amazon, Valve and Microsoft are all based in the Seattle area. It would seem Amazon is looking at this as another investment area from looking at how much they are making, being a retailer for video games. It seems farfetched right now, but this churn is going to increase over this year. There are things called "take over targets" and if the Xbox division is looking scrambled by mid-year, it's going to be ripe as a take-over target. Of course, the whole entertainment division might be against it, but Microsoft is run by the CEO and the board of investors, just like all public traded corporations. They don't pay much attention to Interwebz chatter about personal opinions.
Phhhtt Amazon buying Xbox, what next? Ellen Page is gay?
Greenberg has spouted nothing but lies this whole gen.
Anyways who cares if it happens, a sell off is much better than a closure.
Xbox will likely do better under new management.
And Amazon is a very strong brand name.
Both also have the power of green.
Now whether that source is basing on nothing, sure, but the actual person relaying it shouldn't be blamed like they are.
Like pretty much everyone in the thread is saying, it's not gonna happen. I think people need to chill and talk themselves down. :snicker
Just think if this happened though. This topic would have to be stickied on here just to see the comments of "this will never happen" or "It's not going to happen so think what you want, etc etc" to "whatever maaaaang". Would have to create a wall of something...
"The wall of dammit" would do just fine.
people give Gaf members too much credit. I never seen so many insiders get so much wrong...lol
On next weeks show, famous will find out that he has a previously unknown child named Storm, the week after we will find out that Storm is in fact Thuways child and he knew all a long....
So are the days of our lives........
Lol, please be true.
Insider Clarifies Xbox Acquisition Rumors
I thought a few people would find it entertaining that this is a current rumor and now there are sites saying that I’m saying that Microsoft is selling xbox to Amazon. Like I said before I don’t put enough stock in this to even make a thread myself. I really wish this one was closed. I take the blame, I have serious self-awareness problems as I have no idea that I can even cause a commotion like this.”
Probably MS trying to smoke out the rat inside that's been giving out info.
slow news today lol. also lol@ people getting hurt and leaving. what is this, high school?
What really is amazing? We never hear shit about Sony. They must be locked up tighter than a nuns.....fill the rest in yourself you filthy minded people
