second part... yes
Umm, yes. Microsoft (division gaming is in) has been profitable the last two fiscal years and one quarter (at least). http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/20346/Xbox-Division-Records-Second-Profitable-Year-in-a-Row/
The one quarter from June 30-Sep30 09 that isn't reported their was also a profit, thats why I say 2 years and one quarter (at least, I dont know about prior quarters, fair to say the previous fiscal year surely wasnt profitable, otherwise Gamespot would have reported 3 years in a row).
