Bill Gates would Support Xbox Spin-Off

Microsoft responded to Bill Gates's comments in which he suggested he'd support the decision to spin-off the Xbox business, explaining he was only voicing his support for new CEO Satya Nadella.

Gates disputed the notion that spinning off the Xbox business would be Obvious, explaining Microsoft follows a unified gaming strategy. In an interview with Fox Business.

"We're taking PC gaming and Xbox gaming and bringing those a lot closer together," 
 "The power of the graphics chips means you can do great games there."
"So I'm sure Satya and the team will look at that. It's up to them. We're going to have an overall gaming strategy so it's not as obvious as you might think."

According to according to communications chief Frank Shaw "Microsoft is committed to gaming across multiple platforms with Xbox as the centerpiece of our gaming strategy. We remain committed to Xbox and the millions of Xbox fans around the world." In an interview with Eurogamer.
