Tycho from Penny Arcade has the same take[1], though he makes it more amusing:

"In the case of the Windows Phone, it’s not even an alleyway: it’s a
cul-de sac. It wouldn’t matter if it were excellent. The hour is late.
This is 2011, and they’ve brought a cellphone to a knife fight.
They’ve reserved Gaming functionality for their minority device that
should be ubiquitous. That’s what a true hegemon would do: become
indispensable on their competitor’s platforms. I get very, very
confused by this company sometimes."
