    Again, it's just a rumour, nothing confirmed, and imo, unlikely. BUt it's not FUD sensitive people...
    Some people just like to scream oh FUUUUUUD! This won't happen though. Don't see amazon having deep enough pockets for this move even if they wanted to sell.

    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.

    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.

    He checked with an insider he knows , repeating what was said to him.

    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.

    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.

    I personally dont believe a word of this rumor but thats certainly not because Greenberg denied it.

    I would gladly eat that crow because it would be huge if something like this did happen. Would make things very interesting. I personally wouldn't mind seeing what Amazon would bring to the table. But it's not gonna happen.

    I wish someone would keep up with these guys and what they say. I don't really know what they have gotten right and what they have gotten wrong. If they have gotten famous for never being right....that's just too funny.

    Currently famousmortimer and Thuway are fighting over Titanfall on PS4, famous says never going to happen, and Thuway says "make noise and it will happen".
    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........

    Its the usual rumor followed by a CYA(cover your ass) follow up.


    Insider Clarifies Xbox Acquisition Rumors

    http://gamingbolt.com/insider-clarif...-if-it-happens


    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.”

    No. Having an account somewhere doesn't give them any more or less credibility. Does that make Nelson et all any less credible? No. People just get things wrong, simply a numbers game.

    Don't cherry pick now...

    i'm sure if there were, we'd know about it.

    for me, only thing they've done wrong so far is kill the cam/joypad combo.

    back on topic..
    yes, MS suck badly. could Amazon do any worse...
