Well, that's it. Microsoft has given up on us fickle gamers. It's now trying to sell its next-gen Xbox One console to the small businesses of the world.
In a post on the Microsoft Small Business Support website, Xbox MVP Marques Lyons wrote that the entertainment device "can be just as enticing for you and your small business."
For $499, businesses could take advantage of the Kinect and Skype chatting for "collaborative meetings and presentations." Lyons understands that PCs can support Skype video calling, too, but says, "The difference here is that Xbox One and Kinect gives you the open space to move, gesture, show examples, and see everyone more clearly."
I'm not sure that's enough of a reason for small businesses to purchase a game console, but Lyons argues otherwise: "In fact, it's entirely justifiable to make the Xbox One a business expense."
