Microsoft selling Xbox division to Amazon: "Ridiculous" says Aaron Greenberg

Aaron Greenberg commented this after a fan asked him to stop the insane rumours about Microsoft selling its Xbox division to Amazon.

Finally, someone from Microsoft denied what the insider atFamousmortimer suggested. (Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Not that I think this is very likely...but even if it was....a person from the xbox division would not tell you it was happening.

Yeah, the guy's one of the slimiest liars in the business. I'd love to see Xbox sold to Amazon just to see this clown put out of a job, 'cause people like him are nothing but cancer to the industry.

The problem with this is that Greenberg and Major Nelson credibility isn't strong enough for you to believe anything they have to say. Greenberg has gone on rants about the Cloud making the Xbox One more powerful and Major Nelson is famous for the whole Angry Joe thing, where he said it's not like you can just flip a switch to turn off the DRM. A short period later, basically Microsoft flipped a switch and turned off the DRM.

Looking at this news, it wouldn't really surprise me if it was true that Microsoft was selling the Xbox division off. The Xbox division has cost them billions of dollars every year and the rumor is that their new CEO doesn't want to keep the Xbox division around because it is costing them profits. Then you have all of those key CEO quitting Microsoft with no real reason being given. Something is clearly going on and you can't take Greenberg's word or any of these guys word on it because they shot their credibility in the foot. Only time will tell if this is true or not.

This is nothing more than wishful thinking from fanboys. Ever since the X1 was announced they've been on some propaganda mission to make it seem like Xbox is doomed, yet it had a MUCH more successful launch than 360.

In a way, I like how the playstation fans speak loud because MS is listening to everyone of them, and improving the X1 accordingly. The more criticism, the better. MS will constantly make up for ANY criticism, as they did with last E3.

Can't wait for E3 2014 when MS when they showcase more exclusives and improvements to X1 in response to the playstation fans' desperate campaign.

Not surprising, of course he was going to say no.

What would be the point of buying an XBO if you knew the company was going to sell of the brand in a year? A lot of uncertainty surrounding the future of Xbox.

@Angels, he was NOT lying about seeing all games outputed in 1080p, they are upscaled and outputed in 1080p even if they arent native 1080p, samething for PS4 aswell i imagine, but i guess its an Xbox guy so.........

2 days later:

Amazon buys Xbox division.

OT: I don't see it happening, if anything I'd prefer they shrink into a smaller company and continue making their IP's, peripherals, and XBL for PC and/or PlayStation.

They could really focus on bringing to the PC space what many hoped Steam Machines would, a simplified, harmonious, solution.
scott182  +   60d ago
@lolCHILLbro

He was lying in a way though, because the average person wouldn't understand what he was talking about, and that's why he said it.
The picture is being stretched to 1080p, it is very different than native 1080p in clarity.

If there wasn't a big difference then companies wouldn't care about making a game in native 1080p, they would just let the machine upscale it every time.

Giul_Xainx  +   60d ago
I think Amazon would do a much better job with future Xbox consoles if they did purchse the division.

I know for sure that Amazon would not force a stupid camera in every box. They also would not have crazy check in ideas sprawling from it. And above all: I would actually buy an xbox without worrying about being screwed anymore.

As long as Microsoft is attached to any console's market strategy I will not touch it.
darkride66  +   60d ago
Not that I believe a word Greenberg says (his track record speaks for itself) but as others have mentioned, what's he supposed to say? Even if they were working on a spinoff, they're not going to breath a word of it until they're ready to unveil their plans.

At the end of the day the Xbox division hasn't been about to keep up to the other divisions within the company when it comes to return on capital invested. That's a problem, and we also know that forces within Microsoft consider the Xbox as "non-essential" to Microsoft's overall strategy and are actively promoting the spinoff of the business. There's no secret here. The question is with Ballmer no longer there to champion the Xbox as he's been doing for years, what's next?

If anything happens though, I can't imagine we'll hear anything until after their fiscal year end which is towards the end of July. Bloomberg had a good look at this issue a few months back that's worth a read.

Or he's not even in the loop when these talks are happening. Amazon is a great company. If they got behind the Xbox I may consider getting one. And I've hated the Xbox since day one. Always loved Sony and still do. But if amazon gets in on the Xbox is a game changer. There customer service is one of the best in the world. Hell I preordered my ps4 with them and they charged my card before they shipped. What did they do to make up for it? Change my standard shipping to next day shipping so I got my ps4 day one. That's something I won't forget.

Lets not forget they take back any kindle fire and give me a new one every time. My mom,sister and her kids all have them. The charger port messes up, they send another,broken screen? Here ya go.

It's not a matter of getting what I want. They know there product is made cheaply and don't bitch back to a customer when it breaks. If it doesn't break great you have a happy customer, if it breaks? Where sorry..here's another. They stand behind there name and deliver no matter what. So ya again..amazon buys Xbox ill get one.

A sub division that doesn't make and money is a sub division that doesn't make any money. It doesn't matter how you twist it, going broke and not making profits will send a company under or force it to sell of said sub division.

Here's hoping anyway.

Akuma07  +   59d ago
80.5 million is the total number of Xbox 360's sold.

This includes the numerous consoles that people bought when their 360's RRoD'd. So the number of people who own a console is significantly less. Also there is a large number of house holds with multiple consoles in the house, again, reducing the number of house holds in total.

A flat out lie is now a possibility now, if things don't work out according to the trolls movable goal post criteria. Why would a company invest so much money in a market that brings them impressive revenue only to get rid of it? LMAO Getting rid of XBox would cripple the company from a loss standpoint. The XBOX brand is infused with the ecosystem and is symbiotic to the other products. XB1 is the platform for many of their services.

Xbox/Surface/Bing are all part of the same division, which happens to be causing Microsoft to bleed a LOT of money. The longer Microsoft keeps these things going, the more money they lose, which is why shareholders have long been demanding that Microsoft get rid of them to focus on their enterprise business (Office etc.) and Windows, which actually do make the company money. So far Xbox has just been a failed effort to win the living room, costing the company a lot of money in the process.

The mentality of Xbox fanboys is so interesting to me.

I am not sure what it reminds me of, pure denial, or stockholm syndrome.

It is kind of like when you see the women who marry serial killers and maniacs. You can look at them all day long and never understand why they chose to side with someone like that.

No matter how many facts or credible pieces of information are shown to yolu guys, you fiercly deny anything that would harm your beloved XBox brand.

The facts are:
-The new CEO of Microsoft has defined his vision for the company, a vision which contradicts the Xbox One's existence.
-Several investors in Microsoft have been calling for them to sell off the XBox brand and focus on core products for many years now, and with a new CEO who ALSO shares the same desire to push core products, now could be the time for this to happen.

Of course doing this RIGHT NOW would utterly destroy the Xbox brand forever. So it probably won't happen for a few years, but it is not impossible, and recent events lend credibility to the rumors.

Of course, XBox fans will scream and shout and call me a Sony Pony (worst name ever), because they can't come to terms with the two facts above.

EDIT: Third fact I forgot to mention. Amazon has been looking to expand into the gaming industry in a big way.

Apple is WAY too much like Nintendo and you can see how that is working out for them.

Apple is big on security / control, doing their own thing and such.

I have no doubt in my mind that Apple would probably be the first always online or at least disc less system. I am also sure it would probably work very similar to the Apple TV (which they would probably drop) and have a very decreased focus on gaming. Like I mentioned above, I could also see Apple doing things that benefit them when designing the console and pretty much telling third party companies to deal with it.

Here's the truth...

Yeah the truth being these rumors were made up by certain members of the press and then pushed and repeated by agenda driven websites and a certain message board. And not because they're true but because the people behind these rumors want them to be true.

It's the same MO they used in the past. "Portable GameCube." "Wii HD." Always trying to scare potential consumers out of a sale.

Interestingly enough these rumors started at the same time Daniel Loeb and Third Point LLC started pushing Sony into break up talks, with the potential of selling their entertainment division. To anyone who doubts me simply do your homework and you'll see I'm right as usual.

Oh and just to add a little more fuel to the fire, Morgan Stanley is mediating the talks between Loeb's investment group and Sony. What better company to buy the entertainment division of Sony than Amazon? They already offer PlayStation games on their storefront. They're also one of the biggest providers of entertainment media in the world.

Jeez you talk some sh1t huh look at all your comments from the last few days lol it's cute you like to act like you have a clue but alas it's so obvious you don't.

Anyone wishful thinking about a company buying the Xbox devision is probably doing so because MS are so bad at it they want someone else running it that can actually bring passion back to the console rather than chucking money at everything and hoping it works, the Xbox will still be there it just won't be driven into sh1t by MS and their lies, it's a good thing if a company buys it not a bad thing.
