Microsoft committed to Xbox

We all know that Xbox One was struggling to compete with the PlayStation 4. It is also not a surprise for us if Microsoft choose to abandon Xbox. There remains an air of uncertainty about what amounts to a small side business for the tech giant — ever since Stephen Elop suggested that Microsoft sell off the Xbox business during his bid to become CEO, the idea has floated in the ether. Bill Gates saying that he would “definitely” support Nadella if he wanted to sell the division didn’t help, either.

But it seems that Microsoft new CEO, Satya Nadella who has surprised us with a few moves already...are committed to it. In fact, he wants the Microsoft family to commit to the Xbox. 

This is what was circulated in an internal email posted in the company's website....

“I also want to share some additional thoughts on Xbox and its importance to Microsoft. As a large company, I think it’s critical to define the core, but it’s important to make smart choices on other businesses in which we can have fundamental impact and success. The single biggest digital life category, measured in both time and money spent, in a mobile-first world is gaming. We are fortunate to have Xbox in our family to go after this opportunity with unique and bold innovation. Microsoft will continue to vigorously innovate and delight gamers with Xbox. Xbox is one of the most-revered consumer brands, with a growing online community and service, and a raving fan base.”

Well, Nadella is focus on his vision....a mobile and cloud-focused company but it seems that Xbox remains an integral part of the plan. 

Xbox One may have stumble for a bit, but be sure that Microsoft is going for a comeback.
