Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

Actually Xbox is considered something that degraded gaming industry (especially adversely affecting gaming on PC). So it's an example of sickness really ;)

I would consider the opinion of gamers more important than the game industry - and so would the game industry ;)

If nothing else, XBox gave us Halo, RoosterTeeth and Red vs Blue and thus it can only be a good thing for gaming and multimedia as a whole.
