If Microsoft's new CEO, Satya Nadella, decides he'd like to spin off the Xbox division from the Big M, he has the approval of the company's founder, Bill Gates. According to Fox Business Anchor Liz Calman's Twitter, he said:
Gates, the founder and former CEO of Microsoft, said he’s been helping new CEO Satya Nadella transition into his new leadership role and that he would support Nadella if the new CEO proposed a spinoff of one of Microsoft’s units. But Gates said he didn’t foresee either Bing, the company’s search engine division, or Xbox, its gaming division, as potential stand-alone companies because they are part of Microsoft’s long-term strategy.
Would you like to see Xbox liberate itself from Microsoft's grasp? Which company do you think should acquire the gaming division in the unlikely event that this actually happens? Amazon perhaps?
