Revenue is not earnings. It’s not like they’d get all their gamespass games for free. Plus they’re selling a way more expensive system and giving the older one for peanuts. More smokes and mirrors is what I smell.

If you come across the smoke and mirrors, don't hesitate to share.

I dont feel XboxOne is doing too well... how are their numbers up 39%?

What's in the gaming division? Is Skype, windows games and etc... still in this division or..?

Ok I just googled my own question. 

 

Entertainment and Devices Division

Entertainment and Devices Division ("EDD") develops and markets products and services designed to entertain and connect people. The Xbox entertainment platform, including Kinect, is designed to provide a unique variety of entertainment choices through the use of our devices, peripherals, content, and online services. Skype is designed to connect friends, family, clients, and colleagues through a variety of devices. Windows Phone is designed to bring users closer to the people, applications, and content they need, while providing unique capabilities such as Microsoft Office and Xbox LIVE. Through a strategic alliance, Windows Phone and Nokia are jointly creating new mobile products and services and extending established product and services to new markets. EDD revenue also includes revenue from licensing mobile-related patents.

Principal Products and Services:  Xbox 360 gaming and entertainment console, Kinect for Xbox 360, Xbox 360 video games, Xbox 360 accessories; Xbox LIVE; Skype; and Windows Phone.

 

So in view of this, how is the "gaming division" numbers relevant when its mixed with Skype and PC games, and Windows Phone? 



This is good for the industry... We need MS to stay in the business



Good numbers but never hw sales or information that sales site can really discuss.

 That looks pretty good (we always knew Microsoft as a whole is doing great)

Yeah! Its only Nintendo that always gives numbers. I guess its not a requirement to release those numbers. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

What you googled looks to be out of date since it references the 360 , while it's still an amalgamation of differing sectors , I seem to recall them removing some products from EAD still even if I'm right it doesn't clear up much, so without further breakdowns it remains a unclear picture.



Wow, great results!

Obviously Microsoft is doing extremely well as a company. I don't feel there is enough data here to talk about the gaming side in a meaningful way. Too many unanswered questions.

Regardless what they say, lets be honest here. You would say the exact same thing.
