[Update: Microsoft Comments] Rumor: Microsoft in Talks to Sell Xbox to Amazon

[Update] Microsoft exec Aaron Greenberg has addressed the current rumblings regarding Amazon's potential acquisition of Xbox. Responding to a fan on Twitter looking for clarification, Greenberg said, "Ridiculous, cannot believe people would even believe something like this."
 

[Original] Microsoft is currently in talks with Amazon to sell off its Xbox division, according to "industry insider" Pete Dodd.

Dodd posted the following string of messages on Twitter, claiming the current "scuttlebutt" is that the mega online retailer may end up acquiring the Big M's gaming arm.
 

Why should we trust this guy? He's offered up some reliable information in the past, so he definitely has friends in the know. That said, I wouldn't put too much stock in this report, as a sale of this magnitude (even if talks are in the works) is contingent on so many variables.

We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, keep your eye out for a Titanfall launch show hosted by GTTV's Geoff Keighley. At least that part of this rumor is likely to happen.
