Great results, beating their pre-Coronavirus expectations.

Also, it's nice to get some stats on Gamepass, I didn't expect 10m so soon even with the deals, Xbox live and XCloud numbers looking good too.



10 million is really good. Didnt psnow have like 1 million users a couple months ago?.

I have been pretty impressed with Gamepass. Not only do you get 100s of games for like $10 a month but there's generally a lot of ways to get it for $1 and sometimes free. The value is craycray.

Good numbers, would like more linearity of the info. on XBL we have MAU, on Gamepass we get 10M subs but don't know if it is at this moment or counting every single sub ever made (sure not duplicating when someone didn't renew and then subbed again). Also the revenue for XBox was a little odd, it gave reached a certain number (I suspected in the period and not since launch), but again it mix a lot of ways to report.

Microsoft's dominance in businesses can't be understated - "Nearly 40 million consumer subscribers of Office 365 is significant, but it still pales in comparison to the enterprise side. In Q3 2020, Microsoft passed 258 million monthly active Office 365 business users (up from 200 million) and 75 million daily active users of Teams."

Teams (and Skype for business) are almost universally used in large white-collar companies.

This is what I like to see. Continued positivity going into next gen. Hardware is down which surprises nobody but revenue being up is great.

- Xcloud having hundreds of thousands and still in preview means it can easily overtake Stadias 1 million+ with ease when it launches. Keep doing the stress tests I’m sure it’ll run well when it’s ready.

- Finally nice to see Game Pass sub numbers. 10 million is really good (20% attach rate is crazy). And it will only go up this launch. Pretty confident this is active subscribers. 

- 90 million active Xbox Live accounts, meaning used in the last 6 months last I checked. This is what I’m talking about. Look beyond the console sales and look at the brand. Much bigger then expected and again, will only get better when they have better console performance then now.

That’s right. Halo gonna shift a ton of those. Universally gamers hate the Windows Store yet PC GP is a nice little loophole. It makes Windows Store tolerable with the value lol. 

Edit: oh I just realized what you meant. It’s not 20 due to PC subs. Still more then I thought.
