You'll have to wait for them to win a NPD, when those happen they give a speech that they won the month and some other "humbling" speech.

....

Probably not until next Xbox generation then :P

Well they had won a NPD like 1 year ago and celebrated if I'm not wrong (when X1X released, and they also had put how much more than PS4Pro they sold in USA at launch)... but people insist to say they not releasing the HW numbers have nothing to do with they being dead last.

Yes I want to know profits too.

However, ZhugeEX said earlier this year that 2017 was a profitable year for xbox. And going off the fact that the xbone is selling better this year than last, they are almost certainly making a profit this year too.

Yep, there is little to no reason to believe X1 isn't being profitable, we just don't know by how much.

Yes, I agree. I wish MS were more willing to give out info like profits and hardware sales.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

what is their profit on xbox sales? is there any?



I really hate when people use the term "made" to refer to revenue. It's simply incorrect. If your revenue was 2 billion but your expenses were also 2 billion then you absolutely did not make 2 billion, you made fuck all. What was the actual profit? That's the bit that actually counts for something.



Slight title adjustment.

Haha that's one way of putting it. Did they give profit figures for the whole division or the xbox sector?

The only console manufacturer who refuses to give shipment numbers or operating profit for their games division, makes their reports the least interesting.

But we are all still waiting for Vita Numbers.



Pocky Lover Boy!

It’s not interesting to me because they always make billions and billions of dollars. It’s kind of like NPD and PS4. Meh. It’s expected.

Xbox makes billions and billions on profit? Any report to show for it?

And if it isn't interesting why are you here?
