39% is impressive.

I bet gamepass is a huge reason why.

 

They literally said it was cause of third party titles (aka royalties, i'm guessing). If it was anything else like game pass i am sure they would've boasted about it.

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.

What do mirrors smell like on the console warz battlefield?

What's GAAP mean?

Games As A Service

like always online, such as sea of thieves, where they keep adding to it and changing it, like an mmo.



 

This is good news for Phil Spencer, he probably won't get fired :) hehe.

But bad news for us gamers, Microsoft is gonna continue to pump their games with microtransactions, push game pass, streaming and other garbage stuff to leech every cent out of our pockets ):

I've been visiting this site for years without an account and one thing I've noticed in here is the  amount misinformation that gets spread out daily around its peers. I usually don't care but this one was so wrong, I felt like I really needed to make an account to correct you. That's how wrong you are. GAAP has nothing to do with games as a service. Companies have certain rules for when they report their earnings. Companies use either GAAP or IFRS. In this article, it's using its earnings while using GAAP and without using it. Has NOTHING to do with what you said.

Profit/Revenue > Sales figures

Not when your brand is faltering for 5 years straight and chances are that next-gen you will have even lower numbers, especially when your 2 rivals obviously buckled down for the long-run. 

But maybe some people are just OK playing "MS Financial Results 2018" and simply gave up for this gen.

Or maybe.. MS are smart and realised that console numbers leads to nothing but dick measuring contests which does nothing but promote fanboy wars. So they stick to the numbers that actually matter to the company, making money which seems there doing well.

You honestly dont think MS has bucklet down on the Xbox brand? I mean they just brought 5 Studios and announced another Xbox.. your logic is strange

in case nobody answer to you, it means General Accepted Accounting Principals which are a set of standards and rules that company has to follow for reporting purposes.

I see, thanks. Looks like big profits either way.
