Despite the roaring success of the Xbox 360, some who are allegedly "in the know" believe that it's only a matter of time before Microsoft crumbles beneath the weight of the competition.
According to Forbes' Adam Hartung, Microsoft's “entertainment division will be spun off, sold to someone like Sony or possibly Barnes & Noble, or dramatically reduced in size. Unable to make a profit it will increasingly be seen as a distraction to the battle for saving Windows – and Microsoft leadership has long shown they have no idea how to profitably grow this business unit.”
Hartung went on to paint an even gloomier picture for the Xbox manufacturer, not only predicting that we'll see “enormous layoffs over the next three years” but also downright failure.
Is Microsoft really in trouble? Could the next Xbox truly be the last console from the company? As long as I continue to get more Halo (be it on a Sony or Nintendo platform) I'll be happy. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
