Over the years, there's been a lot of anxiety over whether or not Microsoft should sell off business units like Xbox and Bing, seen as secondary to the tech titan's profitable Windows and Office businesses.And despite the Xbox's high level of brand recognition and popularity, Microsoft executives themselves haven't always stood up for the gaming business.If former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop had gotten the Microsoft CEO job, he reportedly would have sold off Xbox, and Bing search, too.Worse, in 2014, Bill Gates said that he would "absolutely" support then-new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella if he chose to sell off Xbox.

Because while it's definitely been a tumultous few years, the Xbox business is finally poised to help feed back into Microsoft's core business after all, even as the console converges with Windows 10.

Even if all you have is the PC, though, then boom, there are a lot more great games coming.Having more games on the Windows Store in Windows 10 is also a good thing for Microsoft, as it looks to beef up its its lagging app selection compared to the Apple App Store and Google Play Market.Games, needless to say, are popular on every platform — at the time of writing, four of the top five highest-grossing games on the iPhone App Store are games the fifth is Spotify, holding the 1 spot .Race to zeroGames make app store operators a lot of money: Apple, Microsoft, and Google all take a 30% cut of app purchase prices and in-app purchases.

But according to Statista, the average price of an app circa January 2016 is just $1.16, with the average price of a game a measly$0.57.But, and this is important, the MSRP on a new Xbox game on release day is $59.99, both in retail stores and digitally.

Furthermore, even big-budget, $59.99-at-launch games like "Rise of the Tomb Raider" are offering in-app purchases, of which Microsoft can take a cut.Better yet for Microsoft, it publishes top game franchises like Halo, Forza Motorsport, and Gears of War, all of which are coming to Windows 10 in one form or another.That means they won't be showing up on competing PC platforms like the Mac, or rival consoles like the Sony PlayStation 4.

It's an advantage that's hard to match, and it can bring gamers to Windows 10 while also monetizing them.Finally, Microsoft also offers Xbox Live Gold, a $59.99/year premium gaming service that enables online multiplayer gaming on the Xbox consoles, alongside other benefits.It slots right in to Microsoft's broader ambition to sell more subscriptions, notably seen in its success selling the Microsoft Office 365 productivity service.Selling the Xbox Live service to Windows 10 users will be tough, but not impossible — the subscription also includes access to "free" games every month on the Xbox, and it's not hard to see how that could be expanded to PC owners.This isn't necessarily good news for everyone: Apple's App Store has seen some backlash over what Spotify calls the "Apple Tax," as developers resent the notion of giving App Store owners any portion of their hard-earned revenue.

Free XBox Live Code Generator

It’s really hard to believe that X-Box live is over sixteen years old.

It was first made available for the X-box system in November 2002.

The Xbox Live service is available as both a free service, known as Xbox Live Silver and a subscription-based service known as Xbox Live Gold, respectively, with most features such as online gaming restricted to the Gold service.

In this guide, we’re going to show you how you can use our Xbox Live gift card code generator to produce some Xbox Live codes for free.

Xbox gift card codes can be used to buy the latest and newest Xbox games, apps, software and more.

Microsoft isn’t planning to rename Xbox Live or discontinue Xbox Live Gold. Rumors of an Xbox Live rename appeared this week, after Microsoft announced changes to its services agreement. The software giant started referring to Xbox Live as the “Xbox online service,” prompting some to assume Xbox Live was going away.

“The update to ‘Xbox online service’ in the Microsoft Services Agreement refers to the underlying Xbox service that includes features like cross-saves and friend requests,” says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. “This language update is intended to distinguish that underlying service, and the paid Xbox Live Gold subscription. There are no changes being made to the experience of the service or Xbox Live...

Microsoft knows that Xbox Live is not working for a ton of people right now, and it has engineers investigating the problem.

A significant number of Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC players who use the Xbox Live platform are complaining on social media that the network is not functioning properly at the moment.

Microsoft separately confirmed the issue on Twitter and its Xbox Live status page — but even that status page is now having trouble loading.

Earlier today, Microsoft announced a new cross-platform mobile software development kit (SDK) for game developers to build Xbox Live functionality into their mobile games.

That means you’ll eventually see things like Xbox Live achievements, Gamerscore, clubs, and more on updated and new Android and iOS games.

With the SDK, game developers can pick and choose which Xbox Live features make it to their mobile games.

Regardless of which features game developers pick, the features will be enabled through a single sign-in to a Microsoft account.

We’ve already seen a few mobile games include Xbox Live functionality, such as the Halo mobile games and Minecraft.

The difference is that only Microsoft had access to the tools necessary to build Xbox Live into mobile games.

Microsoft is bringing its Xbox Live network to iOS and Android devices.

The software giant is launching a new cross-platform mobile software development kit (SDK) for game developers to bring Xbox Live functionality to games that run on iOS and Android.

It’s all part of a bigger push from Microsoft to make its Xbox games and services available across multiple platforms.

Game developers will be able to pick and choose parts of Xbox Live to integrate into their games, and it will all be enabled through a single sign-in to a Microsoft Account.

“If you watch what we’ve done, especially with Minecraft, over the past few years we’ve taken Xbox Live to as many platforms as Minecraft is on as possible.

If you were hoping to see Xbox Live on Nintendo Switch then you might have to wait a little longer.

Xbox owners who haven't yet upgraded to a Gold subscription may be tempted by this discount -- everyone else loves a good sale.

On Friday, Microsoft announced the 2017 Xbox store spring sale, which will see games and more discounted through the platform’s digital storefront from Tuesday through April 17.

Xbox Live Gold subscribers will receive additional discounts as well.

The biggest news for any Xbox 360 or Xbox One owners who somehow haven’t yet upgraded to an Xbox Live Gold subscription will be that starting now, until April 17, Gold subscription upgrades go for just $1 for the first month.

Xbox Live Gold normally goes for anywhere from $5 to $10 per month, depending how many months you buy at once, so that could be considered a sizeable discount for some users.

Microsoft is getting ready to release an important software development kit (SDK) that will allow game developers to integrate Xbox Live into any titles that run across PC, Xbox, iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch.

Spotted by Windows Central, a GDC session reveals that Microsoft will announce its cross-platform push for Xbox Live next month.

Some iOS and Android games already have Xbox Live Achievements, but they’re only enabled in titles from Microsoft Studios and there’s not many of them available right now.

Microsoft describes this new push as much bigger.

“Xbox Live is expanding from 400 million gaming devices and a reach to over 68 million active players to over 2 billion devices with the release of our new cross-platform XDK,” says the GDC listing.

Xbox Live cross-platform play will allow developers to integrate in friends lists, multiplayer functionality, and achievements into existing mobile games.

Microsoft announced today that it is bringing the full Xbox Live experience to iOS and Android games on mobile devices.

It is part of its larger Microsoft Game Stack initiative to expand the offering of cloud-based tools for game developers.

Sadly, the rumor that Xbox Live was coming to Nintendo Switch isn’t yet happening.

Some iOS and Android games already have Xbox Live Achievements, but this feature is only enabled in titles from Microsoft Studios.

With the new push, Xbox Live will expand from around 400 million Xbox and PC gaming devices with 68 million active players to more than two billion devices in the future.

16-year-old Xbox Live is considered another set of features and tools in Microsoft Game Stack, and Microsoft views it as a safe and inclusive gaming network that has broken down boundaries in how gamers connect across devices.

Newegg is offering a somewhat strange bundle of a year’s subscription to Microsoft Office 365 (which gives you access to the latest desktop apps) combined with a year of Xbox Live Gold for $79.99, via Twitter user Wario64.

One year of Microsoft Office 365 usually costs $69.99 on its own, while a year of Xbox Live Gold tends to run for $59.99.

So getting both for $80 is a great price, assuming they’re both services you want.
