What would be the pros and cons of Amazon purchasing xbox?

Amazon is one company I have a lot of faith in.  They take care of their customers.  I believe they would be able to offer deals similar to steam.  I don't want to see xbox leave microsoft...but if they do, Amazon would be at the top of my list.

I'm quite invested in Amazon. I tend to buy most games from them, recently I've started buying my digital music from them, and I have a Kindle HDX. I would have few objections if Amazon did end up with Xbox, but for me it would have to be ONLY if absolutely necessary.

Seems very strange to me.  Amazon sells everything now and I've lost a little bit of respect for the company because of that.  I think they're still a decent company but I think they should just stick to what they do best which is being a giant online store.  Just because they can afford it doesn't mean they should buy it.  It's too much of a mismatch.  I would totally lose confidence in the xbox brand.  It would be like Walmart buying it.  They are both discount stores.  

We'd be back to the star rating system in the forums again....
