Microsoft’s Nadella: Xbox isn’t going anywhere

Microsoft’s CEOSatya Nadella says he has no plans to sell off the company’s Xbox business, despite longtime urging from investors.Speaking at the Code Conference, taking place this week in Rancho Palos Verdes in California, Nadella said flat out that Xbox would be sticking around.

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

The same goes for Microsoft’s Bing business, Nadella said, adding that while some people might look at Bing only as a website, it’s been deeply integrated with a number of Microsoft products. It also accounts for approximately 30 percent of the search market, he said, and should therefore be compared to Apple’s iPhone if you were to imagine it as a player in the smartphone market.
