From linked article by TC

The Xbox platform revenue increased by 45%, contributing to a revenue for the Devices and Consumer Hardware divisio $1.97 billion with an overall increase of 41%. On the other hand gross margin decreased by 34% due to higher Xbox console sales and early lifecycle economics of the Xbox One.

This part doesn't make sense - saying income before costs dropped due to higher sales of xbox consoles?


Massive R&D costs and a console being sold at a loss will cause this.

Revenue - Cost of Goods Sold (production of units, etc.) = Gross Margin

So their revenues went up but their costs went up more so the net is less. This is to be expected with new consoles though. I wouldn't read too much into it at this point.

You should probably learn the difference between revenue and margin before you post financials and pretend to know what they mean.

Why do uneducated ponies compare xbox numbers in 13 countries to the ps4 in 55 and costs much less. Ps4 is actually doing pretty bad considering that its flopping in most of those other countries like it is flopping in Japan.

Great financial results for MS however and lets see how Sony does.

So if Sony does less profit you will all shut up about ps4 sales numbers right? Because units
Means less then revenue considering ps4 costs less.

The Xbox is flopping everywhere that is not named US or Brazil. Sony is dominating Europe, and is winning in NA, the two most important markets, today.

Japan has moved away from consoles. We know that. Xbox won't make a splash there.

The PS4 holds a wide margin, that will continue to grow, seeing that the One couldn't even win the month where they basically gave the most hyped game of the year away for free and a year of Xbox Live Gold. The Xbox is not a brand worldwide. Last gen showed this, seeing that they finished third overall, even though they had a year headstart, and the PS3 was a host of Sony stupidity hitting critical mass and costing far too much.

This isn't even a war.
