I am still going to carefully watch the market though. What you have to realize is Major Nelson takes orders and gets his checks signed by the very people that may or may not want you to know the truth.
I would think that if word got around that MS was taking a step back from this gen console that sales on games, accessories, XBL, and what little systems are around would drop off drastically.
As I walk around my local blockbuster stores and visit my wal mart game sections, I can honestly say that game titles for the Xbox (since the big whooptie do of H 2) are lacking in variety. I walk through the PS2 isles and think to myself, damn I wish that game was on Xbox just way too much these days. Several months ago when I opened my modding site the word Xbox was flowing from many lips around the world. Maybe that was just great marketing in effort to make H2 a game that sells consoles and get that last rush before the rug is pulled out from under Xbox 1 owners.
I do know this... if MS pulls the rug out from this console there are going to be a lot of people who have purchased machines in the last few months have a seriously sour taste in regard to MS Gaming. It's already a shame that the Nextbox won't be backwards compatible. I just can't forsee Billy paying Nvidia all that dough for the rights to use emulation software on the Nextbox to allow the play of first gen games.
Interesting times ahead, but yet we knew this for the last year or so. Hopefully, the first gen console won't get totally abandoned, but maybe MS feels they are losing so much money because of pirating and such that they just want to ditch the thing altogether. I've watched MS dump millions of dollars into the research, development, and production of product that gets axed right before its release. Nothing they do surprises me...nothing. I am always prepared for something off the wall from the Windows giant.
