didn't realize MS as a whole was doing that bad.


They're doing better than your poor reading comprehension indicates. You should spend more time studying to avoid embarrassing posts like this.

sucks for the ppl who losing their jobs but ms just does not know how to profitably compete in the console market. 3rd generation and it still hasnt figured it out. ms really needs to sell the xbox brand to someone else and focus on business software again like it when it was actually successful


God that was hard to read. Did your brain just fart all over your screen or something?


hard to read if you say so. obviously im saying 3rd gen for ms. and the xbox division has lost over $5b since inception

It's 6000 people... doesn't matter what department they're from. Only to an entitled gamer is closing down a game studio with maybe a few hundred employees "way bigger" than laying off 6000 people.


You're comparing apples and oranges. You must be a Sony fanboy with too much time on his hands.

Wait, what Sony fanboy doesn't anyway?

It is utterly amazing how many in this thread still haven't read the article or they did and have very poor reading comprehension skills.

lol

You have more active messages than shauntennine, therefore you have more time on your hands.

Well when you're dealing with blind fanatical Sony fanboys, they are going to see what they want to see. What they want to see if Microsoft and by extension Xbox go under so they can mock people on the forum, gloat on how "smart" they are for getting a PS4, and the super weeaboos among them be happy that there are only Japanese consoles being produced.

Reading the article would show that their dreams aren't coming true, which leaves them with little more than a worthless troll topic in which a dozen or so of the same topic exist.

That's not a double standard. Closing a game studio down is way bigger than firing some marketing people.

By most accounts, Microsoft is poised to make an overall profit on the Xbox late this year.

Original Xbox did lose about 5B, but Microsoft made an overall profit on the 360 and has almost chipped away at that debt. The One is actually very profitable.
