Analyst: Microsoft Killed The Xbox One Slim Right Out Of The Gate

Not only does this analyst say that Microsoft has "killed the Xbox One Slim" right out of the gate, they go on to say that it's not if Microsoft will exit the game business, but when and how. I'll go out on a limb here and say that, like the million times before when this has been predicted, Microsoft will not be selling or spinning-off its gaming division any time soon.

"The most immediate problem is Microsoft effectively killed the Xbox One Slim right out of the gate," it said in an investor update. "If there were many Xbox 360, Wii U and even PlayStation 4 consumers interested in an Xbox One this holiday season they have now been told to wait until Scorpio arrives in 2017. Microsoft can only hope that the buzz around Project Scorpio goes away soon but with the cat out of the bag that is unlikely.
