We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
I'm pretty sure the OPs rumor is actually true. I read an article, on a legit news source, that said MS could step back from gaming if the Xbone doesn't do really well because of how unprofitable the whole thing has been.
But if Microsoft dumps the Xbox, they'd lose all their developers and fans. Where would they all go next? PlayStation would then have a monopoly on third-party support, because very few developers would support Nintendo.
On a related note, Sony's PlayStation division has been losing money also. Guess they should just give up as well? If Sony and Microsoft dump their gaming divisions, Nintendo would become the winner by default with no competition.
