News from 2017:

Microsoft today announced the latest Xbox incarnation, the Xbox BTC edition. In addition to providing seamless content delivery and an all-encompassing gaming experience, the BTC edition will include Bitcoin wallet functionality to make in-game micropurchases available to their users. Additionally, several ASIC mining chips have been included in the system to allow your Xbox BTC edition to search for coins to fund those very micropurchases.

Several Bitcoin mining insiders look at the strategy as "closing the loop", wherein users of the Xbox mine small amounts of BTC through mining, and then can send the coins directly to Microsoft for in-game virtual goods, content, and music / video access. It is expected that with over 300 million pre-orders for the Xbox BTC edition, this userbase will constitute nearly 40% of the total Bitcoin network hash, ensuring  decentralization of the network for years to come. This constant stream of micropayments to Microsoft are expected to make Microsoft the second largest holder of BTC known, behind of the massive immovable Satoshi Nakamoto hoard.

In other news, the intellectual property from the Mastercard bankruptcy was purchased for 0.134 BTC by a wealthy anonymous investor, who is said to have a stash which totals well over 7 BTC from mining on his GPU in 2012.

2018 Update:

In a rush to profit from the stratospheric rise of BTC, it was discovered that Microsoft secretly implanted mining devices in the new Xbox "BTC edition" to benefit from using customer's electricity to mine bitcoins.  Microsoft is not the first company to use customer paid for equipment to mine bitcoins on their own behalf.  In 2015, a company formally known as ButterflyLabs used customer equipment to mine for bitcoins and was eventually forced into bankruptcy with their founders being jailed.  Microsoft took this a step further by using customer electricity to do the "mining" and may ultimately see the same fate, as death by greed has been a common occurrence for Bitcoin entities since the creation of ASIC mining.  When asked about why Microsoft would do such a thing, Founder Bill Gates responded, "We were not mining bitcoins on customer Xboxes.  We were simply testing the equipment using heat generated from the added ASIC."  When confronted with blockchain evidence that Microsoft had in fact been not only been mining bitcoins, but was using them to pay for Bill Gates' personal residence to be built in space, Mr. Gates responded, "I'm done with you earthlings.  In two weeks, my residence will be completed and I will literally be above you."

Monkey problems? No, I don’t have monkey problems.

The main point that caught my attention is this. I suppose price of 1 btc at the time of writing is at least $1000000   Grin

I think when the Xbox bitcoin edition comes out, the difficulty will be extremely high. So the ASIC mining chip bundled inside Xbox should be newest model. I have to say this is great concept. Users play the game and mine the BTC at the same time. Then the mined bitcoin will be used to purchase virtual contents from Microsoft. Microsoft will be the biggest winners.
