Xbox hardware revenue dropped by 48% from FY17 Q1 with lower console prices and unit sales as the culprits. And Xbox hardware revenue for FY17 Q1 was down 28% from FY16 Q1 also because of lower console prices and unit sales despite the launch of the XB1S.

Guess we are the only ones who read the actual Xbox part of it, wonder how software would be without PC included 

Given cross platform play and the Windows game store struggling to gain momentum against the likes of steam?

 

 

Pretty much the same I'd think.

Funny that this is the only thing you are read in this.

Those numbers are amazing. As always for MS

That's only for the Xbox part... Microsoft is also doing Surface etc... He was talking about hardware.
But yah, if he is only reading the Xbox part, I guess results are not so good. Would not call them really really bad tho as it seems to still be enough to get software up.

Windows Store sales likely only contributes a little bit of revenue. Instead we should really wonder how much Minecraft contributes to the overall gaming revenue. It's on every platform you can name and Microsoft gets the majority of the money earned per sold unit because they are both the developer and publisher.

You might want to change the part in your previous comment where you said the XB1 is selling quite well

Approx $50 billion added to the value of MSFT so far today... incredible.



I'm not really here!

Their stock is on fire. I bought in a month or two ago at low 74 and didn't expect this kind of jump so soon. Making money is what Microsoft knows.

Not so good ? They are tragic, lower than 360. PS4 is basically the very same device as XO and outnumber it like 2/3x ?

If Kowenicki did a proper thread about console segment, there will be only doomgloom posts. Easy to hide this catalcysm behind tons of labels from PC, Cloud etc.

One X maybe will save it ...or Xbox will turn into one of these no name media boxes.

Of course Xbox One X launch will add another 50 billions right............

Why? I think it is selling quite well... As I said too, not selling as much as the competitor does not mean 'really really' bad :)
Results may not be so good compared to previous FY quarters (and I agree with that).

I think I'm really not helping tho with my posts going in 2 directions lol; sorry about that... But yah, 'really really' bad is different from me than not having the same numbers than next year. 



"If you want to know how the Xbox hardware revenue did alone, it had a 48% drop from FY17 Q1 which had a 28% drop from FY16 Q1."

-5Twist (neogaf)

Xbox One sales are massivily down though.

So hardware is selling really really bad

I do not think they sais anywhere it is selling "really really" bad, not reaching the same numbers than last quarter (or last fiscal year Q) does not mean "really really" bad. In fact we know the Xbox One actually selling quite well (not selling as much as a competitor does not make it really really bad).. 

Funny that this is the only thing you can take out of this :)

Its down 48% from last year, which was down 28% from the year before.

Not really selling quite well imo.

Good stuff by MS. I believe the X will help with the hardware sales but it was to be expected when you announce a beast like the XOX 1 year before launch.
