Microsoft Not Selling Xbox Division
Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella has long carried the heavy chains of 'the man who said he'd sell the Xbox Divsion' but he's apparently cut those chains now.

Nadella was speaking at the Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes in California when he made what in footballing circles is called "a vote of confidence from the board" regarding the Xbox Division.

According to The Verge, Nadella told interviewers Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg, "I have no intent to do anything different with Xbox than we are doing today."

So, what of the future? According to Nadella it's all about Cloud and Mobile, ""It is the thing that is really going to power all the experiences on all the devices today and tomorrow. 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," he said.
