Xbox One: The wobbly third leg of Microsoft’s non-desktop trifecta

With the complete hardware, services, and pricing unveiled for the Xbox One at E3, we now have the totality of Microsoft’s “next-generation” consumer-oriented lineup: Windows 8 on the desktop, laptop, and tablet, Windows Phone 8 on the smartphone, and Xbox One in the living room. On paper, this trifecta, seamlessly connected via Microsoft Account, SkyDrive, and Xbox Live, is almost perfect. In reality, though, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Where did it all go wrong for Microsoft? (Tech, Xbox One)

Fools better the entire Xbox farm on Kinect 2.0.

It was never that popular! Look at its game sales. WTF were they thinking.

After their 1/2 billion dollar marketing campaign ended, people stopped caring about Kinect almost immediately. Look at how the software sales plummeted.

Yes, another OS will kill Windows. We've been waiting for that for how many years now. Far too many to count. Well over a decade. It's not going to happen anytime soon. Tablets are taking over and the desktop is dying. And Windows proper doesn't fit on a tablet unless the battery last for 4 hours and no one wants that.

But what if someone makes a chip that can run full blown Windows 8 with ten hours battery life. OMG AMD did. And tablets with it are releasing this Summer. Maybe Windows will survive. Intel will also have a chip that can do it. So will all of the other chip makers in the next year. And every company that runs Windows, which is the vast majority, will want them.

One will be fine also. But let's pretend the phones don't exist. But they have gotten better with those. And once you can play Xbox games on it it might have a shot.
