“Analyst believes Microsoft will sell off its Xbox division, maybe even to Sony”

I’ve been a Sony fan since PS1. I sure as hell hope this guy’s prediction doesn’t play out. I also assume that if Microsoft does attempt to sell to Sony, the Justice Department will step in. Pretty sure the video games industry having a monopoly is as “bad” as the Post-It Notes industry (the DOJ blocked 3M from purchasing the office supplies division of Avery Dennison a few months back – although, I would argue the 3M-AD deal would have fostered growth not monopolistic stagnation and market abuse like a Sony-Microsoft deal would.)

Would both argue and say that Nintendo is still there, though?

The fact that I completely forgot Nintendo was still in the console arena is pretty telling… :oops:
