To me when a hardware dies it usually isn’t a good signs of times to come for software support and developments. And this will cut into R&D which will rear it’s ugly head down the line. To me personally when a hardware dies it is signs of a problematic system isn’t doing as well as they hoped. Support isn’t the same as continue hardware development those two must be hand in hand if the system Xbox is to remain present.
