I'm not trolling lol. My friend is arguing with me saying Xbox 360's aren't profiting as much as they used to.

I'm trying to tell him it's because the console has been on the market for so many years that sales will decline after a while and that the console is def still making a lot of money.

Explain to your friend that profits for MS don't come from selling consoles, rather from licensing to publishers and developers the right to release games on the platform.

Yeah he knows that, he's saying that the amount to make these games are beginning to exceed the amount made from them.

I really find that hard to believe though.
