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.
Nope, public traded companies have no need to report their sales or anything similar. They report revenue, profit, earning per share, etc and also doesn't have to do any breakdown per department
Profit/Revenue > Sales figures
In a sales sites no it isn't.
And we don't really have a Profit/Revenue of the consoles or MS SW because it at least is contaminated with 3rd party royalties.
Or can you help us determine how much Profit and Revenue X1 brought as a console or SoT, SoD2 and others did?
That's totally outdated
If you hover over the different subdivisions, you'll see what the income is made of. In case of gaming, it says "Revenue dollars from Xbox consoles, Xbox live services, First party games and third party games royalties"
One dark spot to those good overall numbers though: XBL monthly active users dropped from 59M to 57M
The biggest issue is putting the royalties together with all else which make us have no idea of how they really are doing on a console/sw sales discussion forum.
This is what happens when you have more online subscription on the platform than actual exclusive games.this actually proves that consumer don't care about exclusives.i hope playstation and Nintendo take note and create more online subscription services rather than investing in expensive exclusive games(which PC gamers don't get to enjoy) .it will be good for them and also for the consumer.
I hope Sony doesn't ever come near it even if it would bring they more money, not the type of product I like.
duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"
Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"
