One of the benefits of being profitable.


Except xbox division loses a ton of money.


400million profit last quarter says otherwise.


7 billion in losses over all outweighs your opinion.


Its cold, hard fact. Why does no-one read the report?

Its about $2.5B now with $1B+ a year projected profits. MS makes more dough on xboxes than Nintnedo does on all their hardwares.

Sonys not even worth mentioning.

Microsoft's stock wasn't reduced to 'junk' status like sony's just was.

This ^ Sony downgraded to junk. Microsoft and Sony are in different leagues when it comes to earnings. Sony simply can not afford to invest in IPs without them standing on their own two feet. Sorry. For Microsoft, GoW was pocket change.

I'm not sure what your point here is since Sony has about ten times more exclusive, successful IPs - both commercially and critically - regardless of the company's net worth.

Ryse IP, yes.

Titanfall IP and Dead Rising IP, no.

Personally I think MS would do better to buy developers than just IPs. Who cares if you have an IP if you don't have the talent that goes along with it.

Besides, that game Black Tusk teased looked potentially cool and now it sounds like they've dumped it for GoW, a series I care nothing for.

Theo Most successful IPs are Nintendo's but Halo comes soon afterwards

Nintendo is irrelevant to this discussion and Halo alone can't beat all of Sony's exclusives combined. Not to mention that - much like GoW - Halo is suffering from franchise fatigue after so many games and the latest installment getting lukewarm reception at best:

MS needs franchises that are both new and true exclusives. Not a tired franchise like GoW, not a new IP like TF that can also be played on a PC or 360. They need to wake up is what I'm saying.

It looked like they were waking up to that, I don't think anybody on this board can say that the teaser Black Tusk had looked like a cool new IP. It's now not happening.

Sony was downgraded to junk? Isn't there a better word that could have been used? The word junk is kind of strong.

How about "poor rating"? o_O Junk is something you throw in the trash. It's an embarrassing title.

That would be like.. a company downgrading someone to "peasant" who doesn't make a certain income, or downgrading someone who is in debt a "Deadbeat".
