As some of us know, Microsoft is hiring a new CEO.
Stephen Elop, one of the candidates points out that he would possibly make it a mission to sell off the Xbox brand and defund Bing altogether.
It's no secret that Xbox hasn't been very profitable since the downfall of the Original Xbox and the many issues with the Xbox 360 (Red Rings, Faulty Power, Etc.). The shareholders are not happy with the figures being produced by Xbox 360 and Bing.
I have been a diehard Xbox fan for close to a decade now, having several Xbox Live accounts.
The fact that they would even consider letting this go public, especially this close to Christmas, is completely stupid.
I'm sad to say that I won't be playing Xbox exclusives like Ryse: Son of Rome because I will now be going with the PS4.
