    If you're a Microsoft XBox fanboy and have had all the Microsoft consoles since the original XBox, what will you do if the rumor about Microsoft abandoning the console business turns out to be true? Will you switch to the PlayStation or will you just stick to PC gaming?

    I would get a powerful Gaming PC, and buy a Xbox controller which work on PC if I was an Xbox fanboy. Many Xbox games are now available on PC, so I won't be missing out on a lot of Xbox exclusive games if I mainly play games on a PC.

    I too would switch to PC and purchase or build myself a powerful PC to be able to game on. I would still be able to use Xbox controllers so it would still feel like I was gaming on an Xbox only through a PC :)

    Whats this rumor going around?

    I can see them dropping the Xbox to go completely PC. Just make a high rig Xbox PC tower and/or laptop and be done with it.

    So basically a low-priced Alienware?

    There is a lower-priced Windows 10 Alienware Alpha PC console which cost $450 and more , so the Alpha would work as a Xbox-like console.

    But, Alienware computers are generally more expensive compared to building your own PC, or buying a custom built PC from another brand.

    I've played on X-Box consoles before but I don't think it would bother me if they left the console world forever. If I was a fan of the X-Box fan, I would probably be disappointed at first but I would eventually switch to another gaming console.

    Well, it would be sad to see. I abandoned the console world decades ago and went to hardcore pc gaming instead.
