TechNewsWorld: "Microsoft Adds Sci-Fi Series to Xbox Originals"
. . . With its commitment to original content, Microsoft is trying to add value to its Xbox gaming console, which hasn't fared as well as Sony's PlayStation 4.
"Everyone is trying to bring eyeballs to their portals," Jonathan H. Hill, an associate dean at the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University, told TechNewsWorld.
"Xbox has been one of Microsoft's few real winners over the last four or five years so this is a way to keep gamers in Xbox," he said.
"Traditional gamers have been moving away from Xbox, so by trying to blend the two worlds -- the entertainment world and the gaming world -- it's a way to stay current and keep eyeballs," Hill reasoned.
