  1. Microsoft Already Abandoning Most of Its Xbox TV Content, Closing Xbox Entertainment Studios

    We are not will not be entertained.

    You're safe for now, Netflix! Actually, since Microsoft is abandoning their Xbox TV content arm that only just got started last month, you've probably been safe the whole time.

    Xbox: where watching something you already pay for at no additional fee is considered an incentive.

    The PlayStation 4 has been the clear choice for gamers so far this console generation, and Microsoft has snapped into action with a movie to get rid of their Kinect tax bundle requirement for the Xbox One.
