What? You do realize that the 2 divisions that hold the X1 and X1 software had gross margin (profit) of close to $1Billion.

Gross margin is not profit.

Its the closest we have declared at the division level.  Taxes and corporate level expenses are not declared at the division level.

Not by MS at least, which majorly annoys me about their financial reports, on the corporate level their gross margin was $8.5 billion higher than their operating income, I'm way more interested in the operating income of the divisions than a rather misleading number like gross margin.

Well how do you want them to break it out then? Do you want corporate level expenses to be prorated out to the divisions?



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.
