Nice thorough article, makes some good points...but too much to post here:

The end of the article:

Looking Ahead
Since the Xbox brand’s inception, there have always been questions as to why Microsoft didn’t invest more heavily into it. That discussion will have to wait for another time, but over the past two years or so, it’s become very clear that the question no longer needs to be asked. From the promotion of Spencer and extensive hiring, to the investment we’ve seen across all areas of the brand, Microsoft seems to have finally realized the potential of the gaming market. It has been, and will likely continue to be, a sight to behold.

I’ve been studying the video game industry for over 30 years now, and I believe this is the most interesting time in its history (likely since the crash of 1983 and the introduction of the NES to the United States). We are witnessing the complete transformation of the largest entertainment industry in the world. It is remarkable and it has only just begun. The days of gaming being a niche or locked to a box in front of a TV are long behind us, and some of the largest companies in the world are now racing towards the future state at a record pace. And Xbox, now finally having Microsoft’s full backing, is in the driver’s seat.

Only responding to this qouted part....

Most interesting time? Hardly. Nobody is doing anything interesting or outside the norm.

A complete transformation? Where? The only things that are changing are things that are not good...like live services.

It was kinda expected, which I’ll totally double dip if so, to see what it could look like on the x and hopefully snag the collectors edition

i mean that doesnt mean anything, they could easily have a template for the icons, and if a certain console is not getting it, they comment it out
