When Microsoft appointed their new CEO, Satya Nadella, there were discussions around whether Microsoft would look to sell off their gaming division. However at the Code Conference in California, Nadella confirmed this wasn’t the case by stating “I have no intent to do anything different with Xbox than we are doing today”.
Nadella went on to talk about the company’s attitude to hardware vs software.
“It is the thing that is really going to power all the experiences on all the devices today and tomorrow,” he said. “In order to be in the hunt for those experiences, and get it right, you do need to from time to time build devices, so you don’t leave anything to chance.”
